Wow. I now see how useless this is.
Originally posted by octotomThere is plenty of evidence for a global flood. The sea wasn't raging either during the year of the flood. If it were however, the dimensions of the Ark would've prevented it for tipping. Ship builders today acknoeledge this.
Feeding the animals wouldn't have been so tough because God could've supernaturally kicked in the hibernation "system" that every animal has. That is something that you'll have a hard time believing in though because you don't want to accept anything without proof--except evolution.

“Backbone” of the ship
Needs to be strong, but also flexible
When Jesus built his massive wooden ark and took a pair (or something like that) of all animals aboard he didn't take any fish inside, right? I mean he didn't take any of them inside cos he knew they'd survive in the water too, right? So my question is. How come we've found lots of fish fossils representing species that clearly do no exist today? What happened to them? Also why didn't Jesus allow any dinosaurs aboard? Or did he? If so, are you telling me that we killed the dinosaurs?

now see, you are already assuming way too much.
you are assuming that earth was covered with the same amount of water as today.
you are assuming that there earth only had as much vegetation as there is today.
you are assuming that these animals are stuck on there own little islands of the world and could not possibly made there way to the ark (led on by a previous assumption btw)
and you are also assuming that noah took each species when he didnt have to.
you are assuming that all animals didnt eat plants. (there are animals with carnivore teeth that are vegetarian)
you are assuming way too much with a closed mind. it makes perfect sense to me how this could have happened. yes there are some assumptions and some faith involved but it doesnt make it impossible. does it?
Where would any extra water come from? Some miraculous firmament? You assume it came from somewhere. I don't assume there was any more then than now.
How much vegetation do you assume there was? I don't assume there was more or less than there is now.
You are assuming they were within walking distance of the ark. I don't assume they were in any place other than where we've found evidence for them.
You're assuming the species that didn't ride on the ark have evolved since then. I don't assume any such thing. I go with the evidence that they've been around a LONG time.

I dont need Dr Hovind to display common sense through logical thought processes. ive been where youve been, its not worth being there in my opinion.
why deny what is so obvious?
why attempt to make sense of what we already know is impossible?
anyone who does this is trying to escape accountability, plain and simple.
