Did Noah take dinosaurs on the Ark?

I think I like the neutron star explanation better.

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?

If you haven’t noticed, God tends to make people suffer when he gets involved….Then things get worst….I’mshocked Satan didn’t get blamed for that one!

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

Hate to be an even pickier nitpicker but…

Polar bears are from the Arctic not the Artic.

Since there aren’t any dinosaurs around any more, wouldn’t that tend to argue that they were not on the Ark?

Heck, be honest.  We all love to nitpick, it’s a primal instinct!

From what I understand of different authors, some smaller species of dinos may have been, but not every kind.  This would explain the ‘dragons’ of the middle ages…and remember there were different #s of ‘clean animals’ and ‘unclean animals’, I’m not really sure which animal is considered what (except for pigs, or cloven hooved animals), so there’s no telling how many would actually have been taken along.  The bible simply advises that x number of every type of animal.  It’s always possible that when the ark landed, some animals expired before being able to return to a better climate, or were unable to maintain their food source.  The environment was very different after the flood.

I feel like the bible is a little vague about some things on purpose - so we don’t dwell on them.

It’s still amazing how all those “Unclean” animals still survived God’s wrath…...... smirk

Things that have cloven hooves and ‘chew the cud’ are ‘clean. thus, pigs, who have cloven hooves, but do not chew the cud are unclean.

um.

yes.
