Do you? Any sites you quote are biased in favor of evolutionary thinking. Noah's Ark is a biblical event, so why is it wrong to use a biblical apologetic site to defend a biblical event? And again, the questions you raised are answered in those links I provided.

The point is, the bible doesn't say the earth is a sphere.

It doesn't matter anyway, as everyone knows the world is banana shaped.

does it say its flat...and would it need to say the earth is round if it was widely know to be round..if you wrote the bible say today...would you make sure to include the shape of the earth..if the bible explained everything...everything....do you think that anyone would be able to read it in one life time...

That's probably because they use real scientific data, facts and empirical evidence to support their "bias". That is not the case with creation "science".

It's not.. at least no more than it is to use "The Encyclopedia of Arda" to defend Gandalf's actions in The Lord of The Rings.

Of course people who put that much effort into defending fictional characters are usually considered a bit nutty

I don't see any answers on those links. Just distortion and wishful thinking.

Many of the Greek intellectuals knew that the Earth is a sphere; they had performed geometrical experiments. Columbus also knew the Earth is a sphere. He just miscalculated its circu****ence. There is no evidence that any author of any book of the Bible knew the Earth is a sphere. The 'circle' mentioned is the idea of a disk, not a sphere; they believed the Earth was a disk that is held up by 'waters of the fundament' or by some other means.

I can't believe people actually believe these stories! I mean, come on.

So I guess all of the genetic mutations which gave rise to different sub-species (variations within species) all arised after the flood? Or did Moses actually collect each individual sub-species?

How is John Woodmorappe coming on with his claim than Noah trained all the animals to crap into buckets to save the mess?
