There will be giraffes...
1) Does it set a precedent to have government money sponsoring a religious organisation?

2) How much trouble will animal welfare people cause when they find out all the animals will be kept inside (including the giraffes)?

But why would an all-powerful being (and you) require a flood to 'reset' the Earth?

'3' was metaphorical and not meant to be taken literally.

If anything this gives the probablility of the Ark existing as much as the Great pyramids existance.


Wrong.
The probability of the Great Pyramids having existed is 100%.
The probability of the ark having existed is much less.

Chuck77 writes:

The only difference being you can see the Great pyramid (seeing is believing for the skeptic) and only see what is written about the Ark.


Some of the differences are that the Great Pyramids are mentioned in many historical documents; has been seen by many millions of people (thousands of whom are still alive) and is still there to see today.
Whereas the ark was only mentioned in a book which is full of metaphorical parables.

There are other differences, but I expect that pyramids are off-topic.

Wrong. Perhaps in your opinion the probability of the ark's existence is much less. But that is based on a very unclear view of the Bible and of history. If what you know about the Bible were really all that we today could know about it and the accounts it contains, then your figuring would possibly be correct. The ark's probability would be considerably less. However your lack of understanding of the Bible's historical accuracy does not mean that the rest of us should see the ark's probability of existence as any less than that of the pyramids existence.


Your opinion has been noticed.

However I believe Chuck's point is that you can't use the fact that some think men in Noah's day didn't have the technological know-how to build the boat he built with the dimensions and requirements he had to adhere to to rule out its existence, since the pyramids show the use, thousands of years ago, of technology and geological understanding which is likely beyond that of modern man. There are other cases of colossally huge stones perfectly fitted together centuries ago which still exist and surpass the technical know-how of modern man (in South America).


It is a shame that you wasted all your time posting that when you could have read the subsequent posts and learned that you are repeating made-up bullshit.
Even Chuck77 retracts his statements regarding the supernatural aspects of the Great Pyramids.

Please: read more - learn more - post less bollocks.
