Ok ill get straight to it.
I have asked this question in other topics before, but i havnt read any direct answers.
For those who believe in Noah's ark, and that there was a great flood that covered the world, within the last 6,000 years...
How could there be fresh water fish exsisting today? Around 97% of liquid water on earth is saline (contains salt). If there was a great flood, i
would assume that all the fresh water bodies (lakes, rivers etc...), would of been poluted with salinity. And resulting in alot of environmental
problems. This would of resulted in the death of ALL the fresh water fish. But yet we have fresh water fish today? and it would take more than 6,000
years of evolution for a salt water tolerant fish to being intolerant to salt water (eventhough i doubt that the majority of people that believe in
the Noah's ark story wouldn't believe in evolution).
There are approximately 10,000 different types of fresh water fish in todays current fresh water bodies, so yet again, its irrelevant if God,
evolution or aliens created them all, *ASSUMING IF* there was a great flood how did 10,000 fish survive?
i also thought about this for a while. say somehow Noah did get all these freshwater fish, and when the flood passed he went to release them back into
the all those lakes.... OHH WAIT, if he released them back into the lakes, the salinity levels would be to great? its anyones guess of how long it
would take before the salinity was removed and the water turned back to its pre-flood state again, the way the fish need it to survive. I'm sure it
would of been longer than Noah's life even if he lived to 600 years...
So i ask you, logically how could this be?
i want the question to be answer as directly as possible, and ill be happy if anyone would like to add their own theories or idea.
look forward to reading your replies.
