According to AIG, Noah's flood occurred in 2348 BC. Exactly. Which also means according to them that all the great mountain ranges appeared in one year, 2348. We've named 700 species of Dinosaur and they also claim that all the dinosaurs were on the ark...tyranosaurus rex, stegasaurous, great Pterodactyls, brontosaurus, you name it, they came marching into the ark 2 by 2 with the giraffes and Peruvian Llamas and antarctic penguins. But gee willikers where did they go? Did Noah fail? Seems like the Egyptians who began building pyramids in 2600 BC and kept detailed records would have talked about them or drawn pictures or the Sumerians or the Phoenicians or any of the early cultures with written histories. (and why do we even have these artifacts and cities that predate Noah if 6 miles deep of water ripped apart the earth?) Maybe people aren't supporting AIG because its answers are so Ludicrous. I believe the Bible I just don't believe these anti-science young earth creationists
Very poor research on the section of AIG and its Ark project - only using biased second-hand sources rather than contacting them directly for information. Their revenues are NOT declining - they have actually improved on their estimates, which you would know if you had asked! As a magazine you should know better - shame on you!
This is so cute. :) I wonder if they will have a plaque explaining how koalas made on, but why they had to leave off the unicorns.
Ahh...I just read Henry Morris (Institute for Creation Research) explanation. Before the flood the earth was flat! There ya go! 4000 years ago, in recorded history time, the earth was flat and featureless! The mountains were created by the flood! Not only is that crazy (Such instant creation of all the high mountains, the Himalayas, Andes etc) that level of tectonic plate activity and release of magma and thermal energy worldwide in 10 months would melt the earth’s crust rendering it uninhabitable for any kind of life. Volcanic ash and gas would have obliterated the sun for hundreds of years. Plus, small detail, the Bible tells us that the high mountains existed before the flood, “The water prevailed more and more upon the earth, so that all the high mountains everywhere under the heavens were covered. The water prevailed fifteen cubits higher, and the mountains were covered.” Nice try Henry. Destruction of humanity was universal, with tsunamis covering all the nearby hills.
So, 40 days of rain, water covered the entire planet obliterating the tops of mountains. I said 6 miles deep based on the Himalayas but Genesis says when the water receded it took 10 months for the tops of the mountains to be revealed. So how high was it? Much higher than 6 miles. From outer space we would have looked like the water planet. From the time that the tips of the mountains were revealed the wind evaporated 6 miles deep of water which disappeared in 3 months. Where did the water go? Has wind ever evaporated even a small ocean? Better explanation is the writer saw the flood from Noah’s point of view in which all the local hills could have been flooded, all civilization destroyed (humans had not moved from the cradle of civilization in Mesopotamia), the local animals saved (not alpacas from Peru), it all makes sense from Noah’s point of view which is what the writer may have viewed. The destruction of humanity was universal. Hills covered. And the flood local to Mesopotamia.
