yea i had a hard time believeing that it was made in just 6 days. Like i am a big christain but somtimes its just you cant take literally. It can be seen in a metiphorical way.
Sanity doesn't exist, it's just an excuse cooked up by crazy people to justify their actions. My myspace page: www.myspace.com/joemage
one the animals he would not have to go get cus it not that hard to say if you believe god flooded the earth why could he not just have the animals came to noah.Originally Posted by Scourge
as for wind the ark did not have a sail it had a roof cus it was just make to last and it give how big it is in the bible Genesis 6:15 This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be 450 feet long, 75 feet wide and 45 feet high. 16 Make a roof for it and finish the ark to within 18 inches of the top. Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle and upper decks.
o and the averge life span being 45 i dont know were you got that because acording to the bible noah was already at least already 500
Genesis 5:32 After Noah was 500 years old, he became the father of Shem, Ham and Japheth.
and adam lived 930 years and thats not even close to 45
Genesis 5:5 Altogether, Adam lived 930 years, and then he died.
sig by me
Two. I never said it was the Ark that he would use to go around getting all the animals now did I. He could have use a different boat all together before building the Ark. Now I am an Engineer, those dimensions you gave for the size of the Ark would make it close to the size of an aircraft carrier. Now a ship made of wood could be built to that size, it has been proven that it can and I am not arguing that. But to hold two of every kind of animal all around the world would have to be much bigger then that.
I will retract my clame that the ship would have to be the size of Japan or California, to hold two of all the animals of the world, it would have to be the size of a small city. Which is still much bigger then any aircraft carrier. How ever, now if you say two of every animal in his world, as in the area he lived which is the Middle East, and a two of a few animals that were imported from Egypt, Europe and India, then yes I can see that possibly working.
Look in a historical text book on the average life span of people during this time, very few lived past 50. And as for him living up to be over 500 years old would mean living 10 times longer then any living person in the world at this or any other time, and his son 20 times longer then any living creature in the world. When the bible depicted his age, I don't by that one bit. Now I am of faith but I have a hard time swallowing that pill.
