Lat night on the news, they had this museum that was dedicated to showing people that dinosaurs were on the ark… hmmm… So, besides every other animal in the world, lets throw some dinosaurs on the ark as well, they will fit!
Anyway here is a site that I found telling you how this is true… ummm, sure… whatever… hmmm

For years, Creation Scientists have disputed how Noah was able to quickly collect millions of indigenous animals from remote, inaccessible regions of the world for a 40-day ride in his ark. New evidence from an archeological find in China supports the long held Christian belief that Noah’s sons rode giant flying dinosaurs to transport duck billed platypuses from Australia, and penguins and polar bears from the Antarctic, to name a few.  “Those must have been some mighty big flying dinosaurs,” says Pastor Deacon Fred. “Imagine the look on Noah’s face when his sons flew in for a landing with a pair of Hippos strapped to the back of one of them things!  Glory to God

Heh heh.  It’s always funny what other absurdities people will believe when they take one absurdity for granted.

hate to be a nitpicker, but polar bears are from the Artic, not the Antartic.

Well obviously, Snowy, before the flood there were polar bears in the Antarctic, but Noah decided to split them up so the polar bears wouldn’t eat the two remaining penguins.

I think we went through this in one of the “God” threads in the old forum. I remember doing a back-of-the-envelope calculation on how big the ark would have to be in order to perform this mission. The answer turned out to be about 1 mile long.

So did Noah build the whole ark himself, or did he have an army of slaves to help him?

Hmm.  Maybe God compressed the ark to the density of a neutron star, then expanded it again after the flood!  Although he’d probably have to re-assemble the whole kit and kaboodle, so it makes one wonder why he didn’t just re-create all the life on Earth.

If God has the power to create life out of nothing, why couldn’t he/she just make it disappear? Why go to all the trouble of creating a flood, getting Noah to build an ark and gather up all the animals?

Because God wanted to involve man, instead of leaving him out of things all the time.  It got Noah out of the house for a change.

The only man involved was Noah. The rest apparently were bad-asses who were going to be disposed of anyway. Noah, the good guy, got years of hard labor. Those bad people must have been really bad, otherwise there would be another world-wide flood today, wouldn’t there?

No, because God promised that there would never be another flood like that again.

Not that I’m a believer, I just like to argue. wink
