1. When Noah’s ark landed, how did the kangaroos make it back to Australia?
Answer: Probably the same way humans and other animals made it to Australia. Either by boat, or a connection that no longer exists.
2. If the ark was covered in pitch or tar to make it watertight, it also made it airtight -- how did the animals survive more than one or two days
living in complete darkness without any fresh air? Remember, the rain lasted 40 days and 40 nights. Noah couldn’t open the window in the top.
Answer: The Bible states that the ark was made with a ‘tsohar.’ While this word is not completely translatable it is something similar to a roof
or a _ There would have been no problem as far as them breathing or having light. Even when it is raining in the daytime some light from the
sun makes it to the ground, I don’t know if you were aware of this or not.
3. Since Adam and Eve didn’t know right from wrong before eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, why did God then punish them for
something they didn’t understand they were doing?
Answer: Adam and Eve were created in perfection with perfect health and placed in a beautiful paradise with all their needs taken care of. They had
all the food they could want; there was complete peace and harmony with nature. No wild animals, no stress, no bills to pay, no wars to worry about.
Everything bespoke of a Creator that was loving and cared for them. Now that Creator, Jehovah God, told them they could eat of all the trees of the
Garden of Eden, except for one. If they ate from that tree they would die. Notice that everlasting life was theirs to loose. Would they be obedient
and listen to their loving and wise heavenly Father, recognizing his right as Sovereign of the universe? Or would they rebel against his rule? They
rebelled and thus sinned. The wages of sin is death. They were created in perfection and with imputed righteousness within themselves. It was
theirs to lose it was their choice. And they decided to disobey. Perhaps some may think that it was only a small thing, this disobedience of theirs.
But you must remember that in the Garden of Eden everything was perfect. This simple act was a complete disregard for all the good that God had done
4. Why would God place a forbidden tree in the garden so close to his innocent creation and allow Satan to tempt them into eating from it, all the
while looking on without doing a thing to prevent it?
Answer: The answer to this question I answered for you in the answer to question three. Jehovah was putting their obedience to the test. Jehovah
did not intend for Satan to tempt them but Satan did. He, being a spirit being with free will as his spiritual Father Jehovah also had free will.
Yet Adam and Eve should have known better than to listen to a beguiling spirit that contradicted their loving heavenly Father. They could have very
easily reasoned that Jehovah is not a liar or restrictive like Satan painted him. In fact we know that Adam knew better because he was not deceived,
yet he willingly disobeyed.
5. When the women went to Jesus’s empty tomb, was the stone already rolled away, or did the angels roll it away after the women got there?
Answer: Early Sunday morning Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James, along with Salome, Joanna, and other women, bring spices to the tomb to
treat Jesus’ body. En route they say to one another: “Who will roll the stone away from the door of the memorial tomb for us?” But on arriving,
they find that an earthquake has occurred and Jehovah’s angel has rolled the stone away. The guards are gone, and the tomb is empty! Matthew
27:57–28:2; Mark 15:42–16:4; Luke 23:50–24:3, 10; John 19:14, 31–20:1; 12:42; Leviticus 23:5-7; Deuteronomy 21:22, 23; Psalm 34:20; Zechariah
6. On the first day of the week, when Jesus rose from the dead, how many women went to the tomb, and which ones?
Answer: The answer to this is in question 5 answer.
