>>Noah would have had to build a shed to cover the ark and prevent serious warping of the sun-facing side.>>

Maybe God gave Noah the wisdom to point the bow toward the South...so his "shed" would not have to cover much.  If what you say is true, do you REALLY think Noah could build the ark but he'd have a problem building a sun screen for the bow?  As a christian, you REALLY need more faith in the truthfulness of God's Word!

That's a standard complaint of atheists, a very popularly repeated old canard, the maths have been done and it floats. But are you really interested in the answers? If you are, here are some, given by the super-Sarfati phd extraordinaire;


The article makes the Daily Express look like a peer reviewed journal. Full of glib hand waving. You couldn't run a zoo for a week with a small subset of the world's animals without proper care, fresh provisions and a large number of staff. To claim you could ram every 'kind' of mammal, bird, reptile, amphibian in 8000 small cages (as suggested in the article) and look after them properly with just 8 people on a boat being bounced about on raging seas for a year is just pie in the sky.
 

So the real complaint you have is that large amounts of cargo can't be on large boats or they sink. But if we check, "reality" as you are fond of checking, if you haven't noticed, many large boats with large loads, float. But 16,000 animals or about 3% of the space on the ark, isn't going to make it sink.


Did you really think I was saying that the weight of animals would make the Ark sink ? No, it would sink because a wooden boat of that size would flex as it was tossed by waves so much that it would leak.

How did the Ark cope when the continents and mountains rose up and the ocean basins sank ? This seems to have been a pretty rapid process. Can you imagine the enormous currents (which you say planed all the sedimentary layers flat) as they surged off the continents ? Such an event wouldn't be very conducive for a pleasant cruise on the high seas.

Oh and no one seems to ever explain how the animals dispersed globally afterwards. For example, how did sloths get to South America ?

And your continued lack of an answer to my questions about the fossil composition of the pyramid limestone is noted.
