Which is why I think creationists tend to remove dinosaurs from the ark list.
Or tend to take along teensy weensy baby dinos!

Re: why not
Why can't it be that the whole story (or stories since there are 2 Flood accounts woven into 1) is a work of fiction?

And again
Ill adjust the calculation on page 1 according to this.
You may need to adjust the figures again because the Bible states that there were seven of some of the animals.
Genesis 7:2-3
Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.
Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.
This contradicts Genesis 1:19-20
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.
Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.
The contradiction is best explained by realising that there are two Flood myths that have been splived into one.

Re: Locust
their sheer size would make them destructive
You are assuming that all dinosaurs were very big.
Do you ever think about things before you post?

Re: supremacy
If God fed 5000 men with 2 fish and 5 loaves ...
then why does He sit back and watch thousands of innocent babies die each day from starvation?
I wonder why I don't worship this evil monster anymore?

Why are believers so dense?
Almost beyond comprehension or believability was the find of the two separate 36-foot human remains uncovered by Carthaginians somewhere between 200-600 B.C.
Gzus!
Why are so many Christians as thick as two short planks?
Another thing that makes me laugh is this constant accusation that archaeologists have hidden all the stuff that proves many events contained in the Bible. These idiots don't even know that over 90% of the excavations in the Holy Land for the first century of archaeological work in that area was carried out by church-sponsored conservative Christians.
These links are embarrassing, if homunculus took himself along to a decent academic library and done some serious reading then she/he would realise how silly these claims are.
