Golly gee, the Flood did do what it was supposed to do, didn't it?

Nope. The Ark was specifically intended to prevent extinctions.

Nope, the ark preserved a few of the species....


Nope. That isn't what the Bible says:
quote:
Genesis 6:19 And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.

"Every living thing od all flesh" is pretty clear.

Yes, ringo, individual representatives of every living thing. That would be races or varieties, which would leave lots of other races or varieties of the same Species or Kind, while representing that Species or Kind.


Again, the whole point of the Ark was to prevent extinctions. If the Ark story was true, there would be no extinct species in the fossil record (unless they all became extinct after the flood).

Re: sedimentation on slope
Faith writes:

It is absurd to think any strata ever formed on a slope. Even if it's possible.


You seem to be setting up the experiment for failure. Even if you see it happening with your own eyes, you've already concluded that it DIDN'T happen historically.

When someone throws a brand new geological situation at me and asks me to explain it in terms of the Flood, the best I can do is perhaps think it out in terms of the Flood hypothesis.


The best you could do is propose experiments to test the Flood hypothesis. Unfortunately, though, when you do experiments they don't confirm your hypothesis.
