and this post is about one particular story in the bible. Not your opinion of the entire bible.

So.....back to the flood, global or local?

You told them to learn your language...







This is a good enough example of why the Bible accounts are inaccurate. Semantics and pointless arguing. It has stricken humanity for eons...

How is it we have so much diversity in wild life from only 20 species? Wouldn't this involve species evolving?
Isn't the main stream of religion agains evolution?

So summary of what I'm really curious about.....
The great flood - global or local?
The animals on the ark - how many were there, did they include every species.....or is evolution involved.

As others on ATS have suggested in the past, the "Ark" could have easily been a DNA bank.
You can get alot of DNA from a single animal, let alone a few hundred or thousand. You wouldn't need every single species if that were the case.

Now THAT is an interesting answer. A DNA bank, eh?

Myself, I am beginning to take the Ancient Aliens theories much to heart. They actually make sense to me.

Cool, thats one of the most sensible responses I have heard so far.

But still question....if its strictly DNA, doesn't that sort of play into the evolution thing??

(yea, I know, typical with education...it does not give you the answer, just lets you know what new questions you should ask)

I always feel that given two "opposite ends of the spectrum" possibilites, e.g., Creation vs. Evolution, the true answer lies somewhere in between. There is no reason God could not have used evolution to aid in creating life. Also, DNA could be easily manipilated into a myriad of lifeforms, if one was advanced enough to do it successfully. Just my two pennies worth of speculating....

OP, some good points you brought up...
Sheesh, the cynicism in this thread is a total bummer.
Let's deny some damn ignorance for a moment and think.

If there is some truth to any of the history the Bible speaks of, then it's too closed-minded to think that 'two of every animal' is limited to having fully grown, creatures aboard a giant wooden ark.

Now, in my opinion, I think humans were far more advanced and ingenious than we give them credit for. Period.
As for preservation of a planet's inhabitants, it would be most wise to preserve them through genetic samples (I think someone has already posted about DNA).

If a cataclysmic event were to happen on earth, as modern-day humans, we would be doing the same damn thing.
Just like the seed banks that have been stockpiled since forever-ago.
