Are you talking full mature animals or young ones . Big difference in intake and waste .

Fish.

Actually, just because Noah put two of every animal on the Ark doesn't mean he put the last two of of all the animals in there. There could have been other animals -- including people -- out there that found a way to survive the flood, clinging to debris, or if they were people, actually living on boats. Just because Noah built a boat doesn't mean all the boats in the world vanished.

With the Noah story, you gotta read between the lines.

You seem to be accusing God that this world isn't some altruistic wonderland where nothing has consequence.


But we are made in gods image and yet god forgot the part of itself that would rebel. Having given free will free will adam chose. Omniscience and a pre-existing triune god would have seen the outcome and either not created adam or created more sons to sacrifice for man - as man kept sinning.
So we are back to circular reasoning to no fruitful outcome.

Which was????


The trillions of feed animals that Noah brought along?!?!

Lol

If he bought oodles of feed animals, then he had way more than 2 of every herbivore huh??

Yes that is why I pointed out that the boat wouldn’t be big enough for the animals to fit...

Lol

according to Ken ham, there were no carnivores back then...

Edit: don't forget the dinosaurs... all herbivores at the time

I have asked that question of a minster before and he is not sure how to answer that question.

Then again, one could also ask this question: Now if the flood happened as it is written, where did the different plants and trees come from?

if you soak a seed for 40 days it may not germinate, or thrive, or even grow, so where did all of the vast different plant life come from? And fish, where did all of the different fish come from? Would not all but maybe a few species of fish die off and only a few survive? If you look, very few species of either salt water or fresh water fish can handle a change in the salt level of water, and those that can not tend to go belly up and die.

Lots of fish species can tolerate the swings in salt/fresh water ...But when it comes to looking for food man can do it and animals do a good job at it as well .even if the pickings look pretty grim

That's probably a better question, I'd think all the vegetation would have either died or the topsoil eroded taking out the trees, and plants, etc.

I read the Bible literally, but I think there's a lot it doesn't tell us so God probably intervened and caused the plants to grow.

While yes they can tolerate it. And most experts will tell you that it is minutes. But then again the flood was not 40 minutes, but 40 days. So it is highly unlikely that fish would survive that long out of its correct environment for 40 days. Very few species can transition for that long in either fresh or salt water and survive. it was not a transition that was indicated, but a down pouring that flooded the land.

I would be shocked if this isn’t an old argument, but I had never heard it before, so I figured I would share.

So the Noah story claims that Noah put 2 of every animal on a single boat (not big enough to hold all the animals.. we have the dimensions.) then released them into the wild where they propagated into the world we see today..

Well so what did the carnivors eat for the year or 2 after they were released???

Obviously if they ate the herbivores, every meal would cause an extinction event..

If there are only 2 mice , one male and one female, then a snake eats the male. Then how do mice continue??

If the snake doesn’t eat a mouse , then how does it survive???




What I find the most icy about this whole tale is the incest factor concerning both humans and animals alike.


That would mean that Noah’s family bred mother to son, brother to sister, uncle to niece , exc.. to create the human race..

Yuk!!!















What was growing on the mountain that the Ark settled upon?

Perhaps they developed animal husbandry skills out of necessity.

Yea hard to argue with that logic..

Good enough for me.

the only Carnivores in existence were those that were contained for that Year of flood waters inside the Ark...
we are lead to believe

since the food chain animals (prey) in the Ark likely reproduced while at sea, there were plenty of outnumbered newborn critters that were MRE (meals ready to eat) for the meat eating predators that were ship bound in Safety
& even afterwards when the Noah family started planting food & wine plant kingdom producers in the Homestead Tradition

Thats wrong, might want to do a bit of research of your own

Evolution requires incest as well, DUH
