Re: How many 'species' on the ark?
Does it really matter? Let's step back for a second and take a look at the big picture. The ark was created for a specific purpose, to save a grand total of 8 humans and two of every 'kind' of animal, bird and insect. All the rest of the creatures on the Earth, including every single man, woman and child, yes children, we're sentenced to death by drowning for not turning out exactly as their creator had imagined. Hmmmmm. Imagine that, an omnipotent, omniscient God must destroy his own creation because it didn't turn out exactly as he had envisioned. God created the entire universe by simply speaking the word, but evidently in order to fix what he has already created he must drown everybody before starting over. What does that say about the God described in this story? What did he change about man's behavior after he killed off all those really bad women and children?
So, argue all you want about the ark's attributes or about the 'evidence' for a global flood, just don't forget about that sea of dead bodies that the ark was floating around in.
