I saw that story about the polar bear and the sled dog too. Animals are so lovable. There are lots of animal stories of the ark type of this thread, many at You Tube. where they came to people to help them, such as drowning deer who get into a boat, in fact more than one story of that kind, a kangaroo even that put its paws on the rescue boat, a mother fox trusting her helpers with her babies, elephants rescued when their mothers were killed show affection for the woman who took care of them, a lion who was helped by a woman hugs her, and lots more stories like that.
O fer pete's sake. A hawk is scared of the coming hurricane and hides in a taxi and won't leave. Does it remind us of the Flood perhaps? Well sure it does, refuge from the storm for some animals as well as humans. You can stretch an analogy too far you know.
This got me into watching lots of videos about animals being rescued in Houston. Lot of touching stories. Sad to see a whole city under water but good to see so many people pitching in to help.
To call the incident of the bird in the taxi evidence for the Flood is a bit of hyperbole I just overlooked. But the incident itself certainly does remind one of the Flood -- a bird scared by the huge amount of water on its way finds a dry place to hang out with a human being -- and all the mental gyrations in the effort to deny it are typical EvC nuttiness cuz Creationists can't ever say ANYTHING at all without being contradicted, no matter how casual the comment. The exertion it takes for this endeavor is pretty impressive. Oh and Riverrat isn't even a creationist.
All the incidents of wild animals seeking human help that I mentioned that you can find at You Tube certainly suggests that something kicks in under such circumstances that leads them to trust us. They are expecting help rather than hurt.
But as usual since it is claimed over and over and over that there is no evidence for the biblical worldwide Flood I just have to point out all the in-your-face evidence y'all ignore with as much wacko exertion as it takes to make a mountain out of the molehill of the cute scared birdy in the taxi.
Hooray for EvC. Must deserve some kind of award for this odd behavior;.
Sorry, strata and fossils are THE evidence for the Flood, despite EvCers' insistence on the utterly ridiculous delusional time period argument. Common sense ought to be enough to show both the impossibility of that explanation and the obvious reasonableness of the Flood explanation. I'm flattered that you come out from under your rock occasionally just to insult me, but you can go back now.
