Perhaps it IS POSSIBLE for a lion to look on other animals as friends? But please don't mistake my post as evidence FOR the flood/Noah's ark myth. It is a childish idea, I am often surprised how much time is spent debating this nonsense.

Re: perhaps prophet wasn't lion . . .
Hi Granny Magda,
All your points are, of course, correct. I am sorry to have caused you the need to expend so much time/effort. (But perhaps I wasn't really the intended recipient and you felt it best to publicly debunk silly notions my post could potentially create.) ; )
Like you wrote, the operative word is "all".
However one petty item . . .
quote:
there are a small number of cases of animals displaying an unusual lack of aggression toward other animals that they might normally regard as prey
Ummm, in nature yes, . . . but. . .
quote:
it is clearly an aberration and not something that has been deliberately induced by human handlers
I believe you are generally correct. However, if you would indulge my extreme nitpicking, , . . . I believe sheepdogs (border collies? memory fails which breed) are trained NOT to attack sheep, but rather herd them. This trained behavior would be an aberration if found in nature.
But I too think it ridiculous to extrapolate this one example to the entire animal kingdom. Like you wrote, the operative word is "all", and a believer should not be using my asides for evidence of a flood/Noah myth. I'd be mortified. Since I don't want to give them any more crazy notions, I'll shout up now. : )
regards
