Not a part of the world that is well known for it's abundant forests is it?

You know,

I oughta take up writing this 6000 year creation stuff. Apparently you don't need any scientific evidence to back it up. I can just make stuff up all day long, write books, and ask for donations, and make tons of money. And don't forget, that when the going gets tough I can always fall back on "God Did It". Would that be unethical of me to do?

Capital idea GCS! Might I suggest we team up to start a new religion. Could I be in charge of "educating" the virgin daughters of our followers?

Then we'll base our headquarters here where the age of consent is 16.

OK!

Still waiting for a someone to explain how Noah and family could cut, transport, hue, place, align, secure the vast amount of “gopher wood” required to build a ship as long as one and a half football fields and as high as a five story building -- using only muscle power, and without any ship building tools and presumably, any knowledge of wood ship building.

My question for debate is:

How did this Noah manage to collect two of each species of insect from all parts of the globe (without transportation), put them aboard the ark, meet their habitat and food requirements, then return them to their proper habitats after a year.

Many of these insects are microscopic. How did people with no knowledge of microscopes or microscopic organisms manage to collect, load, feed and care for the millions of species of these insects?

How did they distinguish between males and females of animals too small to be seen without a microscope?
I dont think it would be too hard with God guiding them in, I mean the creator of the universe cant get bugs on an ark? Come on

So where in the bible does it say that god helped? I think it implicitly says that god told Noah to do the job himself. I thought the building of the ark was supposed to be a test of faith for Noah?

If god helpled, then they really didn't need to build an ark at all did they?. god could have just magically removed all those evil people from the world rather than causing all that water to magically appear and making a big mess of everything.

It amazes me how far some Christians will go to defend the irrational.
