Dinosaurs Were On The Ark

Sat Jul 22, 2006 3:53 pm

Yes, friends, people actually believe this!

After catching a glimpse of these wonderful beasts on TV tonight, I thought it'd be worthwhile posting a link to them here:
Offbeat Tourist Destinations In Your City/country (by Csavel Jul 21 2006 in Non Aviation)

What I found is beyond description:

http://www.cabazondinosaurs.com/main.htm

Anyone who's driven on I-10 between L.A. and Palm Springs know who these happy creatures are. But a few years ago, it appears, a creationist group bought the dinos to create an amusement park of sorts to preach against evolution. In this article on their website, they lay the foundation for why dinos must have been on the Ark:

http://www.answersingenesis.org/docs2001/dinos_on_ark.asp

"In Genesis 6:19–20, the Bible says that two of every sort of land vertebrate (seven of the “clean” animals) were brought by God to the Ark. Therefore, dinosaurs (land vertebrates) were represented on the Ark."

I'm pretty open-minded, and if people want to believe in creationism, so be it, even though it's not my cup of tea. But dinosaurs on the Ark--that just goes too far.

Couldn't they just let the dinosaurs be?  Big grin

Poor dinosaurs got hungry by the 39th day and tragically choked to death on the unicorns.  Sad

Westy -

interesting how quickly Noah was able to collect millions of indigenous animals from remote, inaccessible regionsof the world for a 40 day ridein his ark.
there's only one way this is possible....Noah and sons rode aboard giant flying dinosaurs. and they must have been some big flying dinosaurs! can you imagine how big one must have been in order to be coming flying in with a pair of elephants strapped on?

of course, what is even more amazing is the ability to load 100 million plus animals onto a 450 foot ark in "the selfsame day" (Gensis 7:13-14).

in addition to those elephants, that's a heck of a lot of supplies for food and what not to be hitched up there for long trips around the world to South America, China, the North Pole, etc.
of course since creation scientists estimate the Earth is only 10,000 years old...so human beings were living among dinosaurs and had plenty of time to tame them for all of this to happen.

can you imagine Jesus playing with a pet raptor given to him for his 9th birthday?

Is there a 'museum' too in some redneck area, expensive (all those low income fools giving money to con men), with displays of humans and dinosaurs together and all that shit.
They also want to say the Grand Caynon was formed by the flood myth of Noah's Ark.
And make that official.

Sorry to say, from an American viewpoint, that this has been reported over here, but also with polls showing a very large minority believe all this stuff-which did not fool me when I was 5 or 6 years old!
A majority do not beleive in Evolution either. (Probably think it's a Northern Liberal/EU/UN/Commie plot).

Do you know how this all makes the US look these days, worse when the President is reliant on the dolts who lap all this up, as they are a good part of his 'base'.

I think it's a worthy discussion to see how stupid many people are.
(I wonder how they function in the modern world).
Worse, they are in the richest nation in the world, with potentially exposure to the best education and information possible.

Unless QXatFAT, you beleive all this crap too, in which case the nicest thing to say is that I feel sorry for you.
Hopefully I'm wrong on this.

But all these fools, if they do not beleive in sound science about things that totally disprove fairey tales, why should other areas of science be accepted?
That allows them the use of electricity, of computers, of transport systems, of drugs that may one day save their lives?

ALL creationists, if they had ANY real principals, would live totally as in biblical times, none of the above available.
Unless of course many of them actually are more into the bigotry and hatred so prevelant in 'Faith inc'.

According to popular accepted dimensions of the ark, it would easily be able to hold around 30,000 tons of weight. Sitting very low in the water (as it probably did) it should displace roughly 45,000 tons of water. Since it was made of very bouyant wood....chances are good that it could have held even more.

A couple of heavy dinos could easily be held inside (along with everything else)....there may have even been enough extra room for a few Klauses, provided he managed to hold in most of that hot air.  Yeah sure

Sun Jul 23, 2006 2:53 am

I just read the article, and I admit, it does a good job of spinning the facts so that it seems plausible. But I still have a couple questions:
1. It states that none of the aquatic creatures (everything for coral polyps, to salamanders & turtles, to sharks and whales) needed to be included. But it doesn't address the fact that each of these species live in very specific environments. Most salt water creatures cannot survive in fresh water, and vice versa for fresh. Since it rained for 40 days and 40 nights, and that rain is what caused the flood, and rain is, basically fresh water (evaporated water doesn't carry the salt content from the sea), so the world was flooded with FRESH water, fairly cool fresh water at that - so how did the thousands of creatures that require salt water to survive, survive for over a year in a fresh or semi-fresh water environment? Of course you can argue that the worlds seas diluted that fresh water and made it salty, but then you have the same issue for fresh water creatures.

2. Unless we're going to assume that God physically transported all the animals to Noah (which is entirely possible in the realm of faith, but faith doesn't answer questions - it simply requires belief, and this article purports to answer questions), how did say the three-toed sloth get from Central/South America to Central Asia (and yes I read the part about migratory instinct, but it still doesn't answer the question of the HOW they crossed oceans, mountains and deserts).

Now I realize you won't actually answer these questions, you'll simply call me an A$$ and accuse me of feeding my ego. But enquiring (and open minds, I really will take the time to research the questions as you can see) still want to know!

QX, how are you on the persecution of great minds who dared to suggest that the Sun, not the Earth was at the centre of the Solar System?
Luckily, the christian church was stripped of it's ability to do this anymore.
They were wrong about that, they are wrong now.
They have NEVER been right about science, they are not supposed to be.

Why are you using electricity to post here?
It's because of the same science you reject.
You cannot have it both ways.
Either science, through it's often messy theory, experimentation, practical use of, is wrong or not.
The natural sciences have the same validation as the ones that make this conversation possible.

"Son of Lamech, Noah was one of eight people that lived before, during, and after the Great Flood. When God saw the extent of human wickedness on the earth, He decided to destroy all mankind by a flood. He told Noah who was the one righteous person on the face of the earth to construct an ark 450 feet long, 75 feet wide, and 45 feet high, with three decks inside. He promised Noah to keep him safe in the ark, along with his wife, three sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth, and their wives. The Lord had Noah bring into the ark a pair of each kind of bird, animal and reptile, and in some cases seven pairs of each. Noah was 600 years old when the flood came, and for forty days it raged. The water rose higher than the highest mountain peaks, and all life on earth was blotted out, but Noah, his family and the animals were safe in the ark. 150 days after the flood began, the water gradually receded, and the ark came to rest upon the mountains of Ararat. Eventually the earth was dry again, and Noah, his family and the animals disembarked. God blessed Noah and his family and told them to repopulate the earth. From Noah's three sons came all the nations of the earth. Noah lived another 350 years after the flood and was 950 years old at his death. The story of Noah is found in Genesis, chapters 6-9. Noah is mentioned eight times in the New Testament, and in Ezekiel 14:14, he is listed, along with Daniel and Job for their righteousness"

Eventually the earth was dry again, and Noah, his family and the animals disembarked. God blessed Noah and his family and told them to repopulate the earth. From Noah's three sons came all the nations of the earth. Noah lived another 350 years after the flood and was 950 years old at his death.

Biblical years come in two lengths with three different names. Years are either 360 days or 390 days, 12 or 13 months. The long years fall on the Sabbath and Jubilee years within a 50 year cycle.

I'd love to see a tiny timber-constructed ark as described in the bible loading even just a couple of seismosaurus (weight: 50-80 metric tons each), let alone a couple of all dinosaur species in history in addition to all modern species...

Hmm, well this is interesting. According to the dinosaur people, the Ark was the equivalent in size to 522 railway cars.  Wow! I really wish they hadn't measured it in sheep.  ziplip 

http://www.answersingenesis.org/docs2001/dinos_on_ark.asp

"How did those huge dinosaurs fit on the Ark?

Although there are about 668 names of dinosaurs, there are perhaps only 55 different “kinds” of dinosaurs. Furthermore, not all dinosaurs were huge like the Brachiosaurus, and even those dinosaurs on the Ark were probably “teenagers” or young adults.

Creationist researcher John Woodmorappe has calculated that Noah had on board with him representatives from about 8,000 animal genera (including some now-extinct animals), or around 16,000 individual animals. When you realize that horses, zebras, and donkeys are probably descended from the horse-like “kind”, Noah did not have to carry two sets of each such animal. Also, dogs, wolves, and coyotes are probably from a single canine “kind”, so hundreds of different dogs were not needed.

According to Genesis 6:15, the Ark measured 300 x 50 x 30 cubits, which is about 460 x 75 x 44 feet, with a volume of about 1.52 million cubic feet. Researchers have shown that this is the equivalent volume of 522 standard railroad stock cars (US), each of which can hold 240 sheep. By the way, only 11% of all land animals are larger than a sheep.

Without getting into all the math, the 16,000-plus animals would have occupied much less than half the space in the Ark (even allowing them some moving-around space)."

Maybe there was actually some sort of ark, some guy called Noah and a huge flood. Maybe that Noah even took a few animals with him on that boat, and maybe he managed to rebuild his life after that.

Say there was a farmer who had a few cows, sheep and pigs. Let's assume something about the rain went awfully wrong near his (and other people's) place, causing a flood wave to destroy much of his village. Maybe he had a weird suspicion something bad involving a lot of water being bound to happen, and so he put two cows, sheep and pigs along with his family on his boat. Fast forward to the end of the flood, he and his family survive and have something to live off of. Now take a few millennia of storytelling and exaggeration and *bang* there you have your story from the Bible.

On the other hand, it can be one of the many parables in the book; but there is no way things went exactly the way they're written in the Bible.

God has given us the intelligence to be able to track mitochondrial DNA and it doesn't lead back to three blokes on a wet mountain, to refute the findings of the intelligence we have been blessed with is a bit like telling God that he is wrong and our naive fundamentalist beliefs are better than all the profound knowledge he has bestowed upon us.

According to the text, Noah's wife and the three wives of Noah's three respective sons were aboard also.
