Yeah, kinda. It's touching when a wild creature is willing to trust us at all, which does happen sometimes when they need protection.

Yes, it does. A horrific local flood.

Calling God a liar is probably not a good idea.

Except, of course, he was not calling God a liar (even though the Bible does record God lying) but rather calling the people that try to sell fiction as fact mistaken. There has never been a world wide flood in the whole time humans have existed.

Also not a good idea to disagree with God about what He said.

So just what did GOD HIMSELF say?

What did Man say?

GOD HIMSELF spoke through HIS VERY CREATION.

You explicitly denied GOD'S VERY CREATION.

So what's your point?

God inspired the written Word because we haven't the ability-- or the willingness --to understand the meaning of His Creation, which points to Him.

Not sure where that reaction comes from, but, yeah, any creature that seeks refuge we feel compelled to try to protect.

I think that that compulsion alone validates us as a species. There's a video out there from Alaska. A polar bear approaches a sled dog chained up. Predator zeroing onto prey. But then the dog takes a playful pose and the polar bear responds in kind with playful behavior.

Behavior is complex. Interspecies behavior is complex. The interplay of the two can be marvelous.

George Birkett identified God's Creation Itself as the First Testament.

He identified the Bible, the "Second Testament" as meant to help point us to the First Testament.

And yet, when I tried to point you to that, you denied God's Creation and denounced it as false. Faith, you absolutely denied the idea that God had Created the Universe.

It's only Biblical Christians like you that disagree with what God said and blaspheme the Holy Ghost.

There has never been a world wide flood during the period when humans existed.
