Noah’s Ark Gets Balanced Treatment

first_imgReuters gave balanced treatment to the question of how Noah fit all the animals on the Ark.  Evolutionists, of course, deny that Noah existed or a boat ever saved all the animals on earth.  The article quoted mocking comments to the effect that there is no way up to 50 million species with vastly different environmental needs could have lived in a floating zoo for a year.  But reporter Alister Doyle also quoted Dr. David Menton, from Answers in Genesis, explaining factors that would have allowed God’s directive to be carried out.  Doyle agreed that the Biblical description of the Ark is “far from the tiny vessel depicted in many children’s books with giraffes’ heads sticking out the top.”  He gave Menton surprisingly ample space in the article.    The question stemmed from a meeting May 19-30 of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity.  Scientists are considering how to preserve earth’s biodiversity with some kind of modern-day refuge.  A picture of a large wooden ship taking shape with a Mount Ararat in the background adorns the article.Thank you, Alister Doyle, for attempting to give fair and balanced reporting on this question.  Was a floating refuge for the animals possible?  Consider Noah’s Ark: A Feasibility Study by John Woodmorappe (see Answers in Genesis), or an article on the subject by Jonathan Sarfati on Creation Ministries International.  Don’t ridicule it till you’ve heard it defended with competence.  Consider also that dozens of people groups have legends of a worldwide flood during which people and animals were preserved on a floating vessel.  Only the Biblical account comes close to feasibility and plausibility.  Don’t forget, too, that geology provides evidence of sedimentation and erosion on colossal scales far greater than anything occurring today.  For more evidences of a global flood, see a brief article on Answers in Genesis by geologist Dr. Andrew Snelling.(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
