        How did the 3 toed sloth make the boat?

        Why is there no mention of Kangaroos?

        How did animals from separate continents, get over their respective oceans?

        All questions that have been asked before I'm sure.

          Turkey? or wherever that mount is is probably not a big country perhaps there were not too many animal species in that country.

                  Yes it would. Eating dead people was too bizarre for my common sense to get its head around but it was true.

                  We might never know if the flood happened or not.

                    There's scientific proof a Great Flood did happen. The specifics can be questioned. The three toed sloth does present a problem with the Noah theory.

          A snap of the fingers and an abracadabra worked just fine for god back then.  The same would have done so without drowning all of the babies and tiny little bunny rabbits too, but apparently he was trying to make a point.  Gods do that!  smile

            I address this question in one of my hubs.
            Why do we put so much weight on Gods shoulders? Him carrying us around is not good enough for you?
            I think in instances like the flood or parting the red sea shows God is not all powerful and all knowing but, God does his best to save us the best he can.

            The hub is about his struggle with Lucifer and his limitations and love for his Children.

          Even birds flocks when the season change. So does the animals. They sniff a coming destruction better than human.

          "Regional" is the key word here. Every regional have every fowl/creatures according to its kind, of it's environment (in that time).

          You don't need two of every kind, just 10% of the two's of every kind of that regional, in that environment.

      Apparently God only spoke to Noah even instructing how he should build the Ark. When he told the people, they laughed at him or something like that. Didn't believe him and so drowned. Did someone else build a boat?

                Your "ancient race" ---- interesting. Tell me about this ancient race. Identify them in the Bible before mankind knew the Earth was round, for I tell you a truth, in the story Job, even he knew the Earth was round and knew this in the region of Israel to Africa.

                I tell you another truth, Penny. Your ethnicity didn't come around until 600 B.C. in Europe. There is no way your "we" people was around during Noah's time. In fact, the Progenitor of your ethnicity was yet a young man and hasn't multiply his seed as of yet.

                  Yes I am aware the bible states the knowledge of the world being round before science confirmed it. I was referring to scientists confirmation. Like Job our people were privy to this knowledge too. I doubt that we were the only sea travellers of the time too.

                  We were not in Europe nor did we originate there according to our ancient history.   You cannot declare we were not around when you do not know our history or progenitor as you put it.

                    "They are not in the Bible as far as (you) are aware" ---- interesting. Could it be that your ethnicity hasn't yet come into existence? Just a question?

                    And like Job, your people was privy to this knowledge ----- quiet interesting. Let's see....the people of Noah's time were mostly experts of astrology, all the way to the Mayans. All indigenous people of planet Earth and you set about a distinction that your "mysterious people" was their among them, advancing civilization.

                    You know, Penny....not even the Cro-Magnum was known for astrology or anything to do with discovering the Earth to be round about.

                    And if your ethnicity did not originate in Europe, where, in the region from Israel to Africa, they came from? Do not claim Asia Manor, the Africans had that populated. Do not claim Mesopotamia or any of the region in the Nile, the Africans had that populated.

                    Do not claim America. Do not claim any of the islands not seen today, for it is are under water now.

                    Your ancient history started thousands of years after Japheth, son of Noah. Japheth was Black though. Your common ancestry to link your ethnicity to the African parents were Albinism, Penny. It is the only link to bring about the Caucasian skin texture.

                    Your ethnicity did not appear as its own distinctive seed. Your ethnicity is not a race as you believe. There is one race, the Black race. You, and everyone else is an ethnicity under the Modern Human race: Black African.

                    Now, if you will....let's hear about your "ancient history" and where they came from?

      I was not a Boat!  It was an Ark.  A boat can't take tidal waves. 

      Take a empty container of milk and put it in a tub of water.  Take a pail and keep throwing water on it. It will float until the wax wares off it.  Design and reinforcment was the difference between the Ark and the boats trying to survive the flood.  Goaffer wood and the Ark covered with pitch(tar)was how the Ark floated until the water dried up.  A since it was flat on all sides; it settled back on dry land with tipping over.

      Even if you don't believe the story of the flood; you have to admit the science was sound.

        I'm not even going to get into the numerous other issues with the flood story. The idea of a global flood and the aftermath for example. Keep in mind the writers of the Noah story, and the author(s) of The Epic of Gilgamesh, from which the Adam and Eve and Noah story were based on, believed the earth was flat and sat in the middle of a great endless sea and was at the center of the universe. But if you or anyone else want to believe these fairy stories as historical fact, go ahead. The rest of us will try to control our laughter.

              I think most of the debris from the flood ended up in the Black sea.  There are large areas of flat bedrock in New York State with deep grooves in them, all pointing south.  It is "assumed" that these flat rocks were actually stone mountains that were shaved off by a vary hard and massive force.  Like maybe massive plates of glaciers sliding down the earth and flattening anything in their path on the way to the equater(most likely forming our gulf just like a snowballs makes a groove and a puddle)where they melted.  Wouldn't something that caused large pieces of the earth to move along the surface of the earth cause something like massive amounts of friction and energy and pressure that would cause alot of storms and alot of rain and vary large tidal waves that  wash away land and stuctures that had to end up somewhere?

              Anyway:while you put that all together in your head; the video I suggested did pose these question, show this evidence, and perform the experiments about how the Ark could have survived that disaster.  If it happened.

            When you (Friendlyword) watched the two programs on the History and Biography Channel, you probably forgot the words "story" and/or "myth". The topic was "Biblical Disasters" not historically true disasters.

    Because Noah was the only one smart enough to carry oxygen tanks with him.

    Don't forget, the Himalayas were populated then and God murdered those people with His flood; if that is true we might as well accept that He also covered the entire earth, including Mt. Everest at 29,000 feet.  At that elevation oxygen is needed for survival (along with lots of heat) but no one then knew that and thus did not carry any on their boats.

    (That Noah didn't know what oxygen was, couldn't make it OR the tanks to carry it is immaterial.  God provided it all).

    Those who are only interested in arguing about the Bible do not be surprised if I do not respond to your comments for I have been down this road numerous times with others who think exactly like you.

    This message is for those who are considering a Christian way of life. The assertions that God cannot exist because God cannot be proven or be scientific is the limitations of the human mind. For those who accept God on faith which means nonbelievers need not apply God rejects our flimsy little scientific perspective. If we are to accept the existence of God consider biblical history as to how great God truly is. God divided the waters so that the slaves following Moses could pass, Jesus himself walked on the water and history has not recorded anyone else having done the same-(yes people talk about the guy who got out of the boat but it is my firm belief he was only capable of doing that because Jesus held him up), Jesus raised Lazarus back to life. A question was asked in one of these forums why was Noah's boat the only boat that floated-Please understand this when it comes to God we can take our funky little science and throw it away because a little things like physical scienceis not going to prevent God from achieving its objective. Mankind is bound by physical laws not God.

      The God that sanctioned murder, rape and torture in the old testament?

      The God that Jesus vehemately supported, even though God is morally bankrupt?

      The supposed God that was eternally unchanging, yet changed his mind?

      The God that sanctioned the bloody slaughter of every man in a villiage and then said it was ok to take their virgins (against their will)?

      The same God that had no idea about cell phones and 3 toed sloths?

      The same God that still let's evil, disgusting people into heaven, while punishing the just?

      I hope you understand Why I don't believe in your evil God.

      lol "We can take our funky little science and throw it away because a little things like physical sciences not going to prevent God from achieving its objective." In the Old Testament, God was slaughtering people right and left. He seemed to mellow out in the New Testament. I guess being a father has that effect on people. LOL For those who do not believe in science, or physical laws, need to stop taking any medications for any reason and stop using any form of convenience (i.e. automobiles, computers, cell phones, TVs, CD players, etc, etc,). Move out of your house, which has science all over it (everything from the insulation to the paint), and move to some cave in the middle of some jungle. There they can be one on one with your man made god. Oh yeah, lose the matches and lighter.

    Well Paul,

    where in the old or New Testament did you actually read where God was on the ground killing these people you claimed was killing?

    I get this idea from people like you that you're so much smarter than God if that were true why then were you people doing the killing?

    If someone is telling you to do something wrong and you do it-can anyone say Charles Manson!

      Of course he didn't do it personally.  He used people like you who were gullible enough to believe he wanted such destruction.  But there really wasn't a "He" either, just superstitious judgmental people who think "they" know what is right for everyone else.

        Killing 27 million people on earth at the time of Noah spiritual Journey was the right thing to do.

        Randy,

        You of all people talking about judging people is more than a laugh since you spend the majority of your time telling other people about a religion you know nothing about.

        Constantly telling people what is and what is not without the capacity to prove one single thing you have to say.

        If it wasn't so ridiculous it would be laughable to say while God made people do this and made people do that  AND by the way there is no God how distorted is that point of view?

        I really hope people on taking you seriously.

            There are times for whatever reason I believe there is a true sense rational thinking in you. It appears to me you choose to remain in the background with regards to your sincere comments.

            You've chosen to be on the negative side of the issues which you are free to do so if however you have contributions that could possibly impact another person's life positively then I believe it is a bad your approach to life will have been wasted with respect to perhaps having made a real difference.

              Actually Span

              I think am a strongly positive and optimistic person
              By taking very negative inventive concept like of Noah Ark where God kills 99.9999% of the people on earth along with them going to hell. Then with my imagination sling shot these kinds of negative questions out into the Stars and Cosmo. Then I wait for for an answer from some form of higher energy that give my a silly answer in reply. Why ask a silly question you get  will get  silly answer

              If Noah Ark was a true story , then God has very little respect for human beings and nature and in return want us to fear and worship him. In my books you must give respect to get respect then you can go beyond with love

    Castlepaloma,

    Unfortunately we are not on equal level with God. The fact remains we did not create ourselves as human beings, we did not create the Earth, we did not create the universe, we do not create the rains, we did not create the Sun or the moon nor any of the animals we kill and eat.

      A story is as good as it's writer. In this case, the writer was a few hundred years off and hence, could not come up with a likely account. Probably a story passed down in the familly. It would definitely explain alot of the wierd parts.
