Default This is why the Noah's ark was impossible.

This video explains all the difficulties with Noah's ark and why this is only a myth written by limited knowledge of people years ago.

Oh thank God! Another thread about Noah's Ark versus Reality. I'm serious. Takes the heat off having to straighten it out over on the NAMI-Scam thread, which stands (or falls.. THUDDO) on it's own merits.

Go for it, jojajn! Reps all round!

Tom? Here's your chance to straighten us all out. Just address each of those points the video makes, one at a time, but honestly! FAC.

Covers all the salient points and some I hadn't thought of (altitude) Though I imagine that the air pressure and thus ground temp at sea level would still be the same even at mountain - top level?

But I loved the solution - Magic. Yep, sooner or later, you need magic.

And the 'People believe this?' conclusion was neccesary...or the theists would sit and say..ok..so what?

OP - anything is possible once you have magical faith and live in a different virtual planet built upon hallucinations.....

Anyway, rumor in these forums is we are going to find the ark any day now - that should clear things up!

Default The Conclusions Are Obvious, obviously!

Relax, relax people. Those with this sort of belief mantra and denialist's paradigm have an inner calm, a sort of placidity and quiet smugness befitting those blessed with extraordinary knowledge. Ever notice how they smile at you at those Church socials when you mention you're an atheist?

"Oh you poor dear.... Now just come and sit over here with Ain't Bea. We'll pray together for your soul!"

Wow-yuuup! I feel better awh-ready! All "convinced 'n such"!
________________________________

BTW; I think the elevated atmosphere would most likely remain almost identical as the mean seal level rose and pushed it up. Certainly the oxygen percentage would be similar; slightly lower because the effects of gravitation on the atmosphere would be reduced, but the protective effects from the existing atmosphere would also be reduced by atmospheric thinning (i.e.: The same volume stretched over a significantly larger area. This is too hard for theists to comprehend I'm thinking).

So photosynthesis by marine and terrestrial algae and vegetation would be significantly altered, if not terminated. All God's creations exist within fairly narrow ecological constraints (temp, pressure, oxygen tension, available gases and solar input, etc etc.), not to mention available food and water, (all gone...) so a significant alteration of even one of them would prove disastrous to life, not to mention if we altered, say, 2 - 5 of them. ZIPPO: instant death! A dead planet. Hardly what God must have wanted, huh? Oooppppsss.

Well, it's all bad, except in the addled minds of the determined Arkasian Aliens...

As we've noted all along on several past threads, it's technically impossible on several levels. But anyhow: the response from Ark defenders to such comments and facts?

Ignore them. Deflect. Deny. Go to Ad hominems. Make appeals to Emotion as a reasonable alternative to logic. Hope for the best. Go to bed early. Come back tomorrow and re-state your already-failed ideas. Grossly Over-Reach & Exaggerate in your conclusions (GORE™). Quote-mine & exaggerate what legitimate researchers have found about unrelated conditions elsewhere (from web spiders to vast underwater cities to fossils to water sources to faked carvings), but also ignore it when they coincidentally debunk the Ark. Thus: Become a full-time hypocrite.

Yep: All Tried & Failed strategies to fuel the delusion.
