If creationists could spend a hundred million dollars to build a museum, why not spend the money on an experiment to prove that it was entirely possible for Noah and his family to take care of that many animal in an isolated system like the ark?
Seems pretty simple to me. Have a little less than a dozen good christian volunteers. Build a replica of the ark based on the specs from the bible. Put in it 2 animal of each "kind" and as much food and water as the replica ark could hold. Lock it up. Wait for a year and then open it up to see if anything is still alive.
PS We've been having some pretty far fetched reality tv shows lately. I'd pay real money to see such an experiment being done.

Not a debatable topic
I can't help but feel I've seen this topic before, but I can't track it down.
Regardless, I don't see this as a debatable topic. It looks mostly as a place for a bunch of wise-ass remarks.
Adminnemooseus votes "rejected".

This could be a fun way to explore a popular topic here, the feasibility of the Noah's ark story. I'd be particularly intrigued if when you say that a dozen Christian volunteers should build an ark based on specs from the Bible that we add to it that using period tools they also have to chop down their own trees and hew their own lumber while at the same time building the ark, producing enough food for themselves during construction and for the animals and themselves during the voyage, and gathering all the animals.
This *would* absolutely make a great reality show. One can imagine during the loading of the ark Shem saying to Noah, "The wolves are refusing to eat the hay we provided and ate the sheep again, we have to find more bloody sheep."
I'll promote this topic, but will add Adminnemooseus's proviso that this thread not be used as vehicle for mockery and mayhem. Closing a thread is even easier than promoting one.
