Yeah, kinda. It's touching when a wild creature is willing to trust us at all, which does happen sometimes when they need protection.

Calling God a liar is probably not a good idea.

Also not a good idea to disagree with God about what He said.

I love that nervous little "butterball" birdy. I wish I could keep him.

God inspired the written Word because we haven't the ability-- or the willingness --to understand the meaning of His Creation, which points to Him.

I don't know who George Birkett is but I'd bet he isn't God or Moses or Samuel or any of God's chosen prophets.

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.

The Bible was written by men.

Written by men who were inspired by God, making their words His words.

Unless you think you are God, your words are also the words of a human.

My words ARE words of a human, a human who nevertheless takes God's Word very seriously and prays for His guidance.

Harvey the Hawk updates
the taxi driver kept trying to get him to fly off and ended up taking him home with him to wait out the hurricane; eventually got him to an animal shelter.

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.

I don't take it as a joke, it's a sweet reminder of animals' dependency on us which is most dramatically portrayed in the Ark.

EvC triumphs again
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.

Strata

Fossils

Hooray for EvC. Must deserve some kind of award for this odd behavior;.

Re: EvC goes bonkers again
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.
