Not enough room.
A single cow eats ~15000 lbs of hay a year.
This would require 1000 cubic feet to store all that hay.

A single cow also drinks ~5000 gallons of water per year.
That would require 900 cubic feet to store all that water.

And that is just one cow.

That is a really good point, I have to admit. I suppose you could end up with some pretty skinny cows that had to go on diets by the end, but otherwise, I'm not sure there's much explanation that wouldn't offend people who dislike Jesus' "loaves and fish" miracles.


And as jar pointed out, there are 7 cows.
Then there are the rhinos and the giraffes and the hippos and the elephants and the camels....

Don't know how that'd be explained without something supernatural.


Then it makes no sense for you to even try and find scientific support for your beliefs.
Because when you hit an insurmountable problem you simply hand-wave it away with "god-did-it-with-magic" - a "deus ex machina", if you will.

But you do have an answer for it.
God-did-it-with-magic.

Just because Evolutionists discard their theory of Evolution every time they encounter a problem with it they can't explain, doesn't mean I have to abandon my beliefs just because I've found one problem I can't yet explain.


When scientists don't know something, they say "I don't know."
When you don't know something, you say "Don't know how that'd be explained without something supernatural."

Jzyehoshua writes:

My point is, there are puzzles scientists can't explain on occasion. They just assume they need to keep looking.


Correct.
But you stop looking and claim "god-did-it".
You also will never accept the possibility that it never happened regardless of how many unanswerable questions you encounter.
Because, if push comes to shove, "god-did-it-with-magic".

Could it be what AIG was saying, some sort of trap door setup allowing waste to fall down to a lower floor? I suppose. Maybe there was some kind of rainwater catcher for the water, or the water outside the Ark was more okay to drink, mixed as it was with water worldwide. Maybe salination wasn't as extreme as it is today.


You are now having to change aspects of the whole planet's environment to avoid changing your beliefs.
Here's another fact for you to have to adjust reality for: a single lion requires 100+ large animals to feed on in a year. How much food do you think those prey animals would need?
You would need to change many aspects of reality to support your ark story.
But the option that "the Noahic flood never happened" is never a possibility.

Jzyehoshua writes:

But I'm not going to throw out my beliefs because of a single unexplained dilemma any more than scientists throw out their theories over unexplained mysteries.


And that is the complete opposite of what you wrote just a second ago: "Just because Evolutionists discard their theory of Evolution every time they encounter a problem."
So - you are not doing science. You don't want to do science. You will never do science.

You are just playing, pretending to be scientific, but you will drop it like a hot potato if you ever have to adjust your beliefs.
That is called dogma - and it is not science.

So, there is still no point in your attempts to be scientific.
You don't accept science if it disagrees with you and you will happily claim that magic was involved, rather than adjust your beliefs.
