Was it climate controlled to allow them all to survive ?
How did he traverse the world collecting them all ?
After the flood was over did he drop them all in one location, or traverse the world to drop them off individually ?
How did he catch that really fast cheetah that can run up to 120 km/h or 75 mph?
I'm just curious, that's all, must be one hell of an ark.
1. Noah brought 2 of every "kind" not species. For example 2 wolves can account for the hundreds of dog species that exist today. There is no point in bringing every sepecies. With 2 muts you could essentially breed out most of the species in existance today within 10 generations
2. Noah was instructed to brind land animal kinds that breathe through the nostrils. That eliminates all marine creatures and insects which could survive on their own.
3. The earth itself was climate controlled, that is why tropical plant fossils and dino remains are found in the antarctic. The whole planet was tropical
4. Animals came to him
5. Everything left from Arrarat, and moved to their respective locations. Ocean levels were lower during the ice age (which occured right after the flood) therefore you could walk from Asia to Australia.
6. Again, animals came to Noah, but cheetahs are the result of centuries of natural selection/speciation. They did not exist back then (hence no fossils)
7. Ark was big enough to hold 500 railroad box cars. It's purpose was not to provide luxurious travel conditions but to simply be a cargo vessel to preserve life from the flood.
