Why do you suggest this? It took a hundred years to build the ship. He did not necessarily have a huge labor force. He had enough to get the job done.

How did he deliver the funds?
He had them line up on a certain day and gave to each laborer what was due them.

Is there where the fantasy of Leprechauns and pots of gold at the end of a rainbow come in to the fantasy?
Is there were? What kind of English is that? They mined silver and gold back then and minted coinage.

We have money trees today. Here's a picture of one:

Nope.

Sure, just like the faery tale and never ending cornucopia of utter nonsense and willful ignorance supporting more pure nonsense such as evolution.

So a mere 5000 years ago, the tallest mountain was only 300 feet high? Then we can also assume that the deepest part of the ocean would also be only 300 feet, which would mean that there would be no dry land anywhere, this would be water world.

The desperation exhibited to validate your fantasy view of an ancient fable creates the illusion that you have some serious inability to deal with what is real and what is a complete fantasy.
Yea, just like you are in the fantasy world of the unprovable faery tale called evolution.


No, the continent of Pangaea had mountains at a height of around three to four hundred feet in height prior to Noah's flood. The ocean basins were deep enough to hold the oceans in that day along with all the underground water. All God had to do was sublimate the continent of Pangaea when the right time came.

You got that one right, Asheville. This toadie always has some wack-a-loon explanation, made up on the spot, but today's quote, sublimate the continent of Pangea?

1) THe idea of Pangaea is a recent one, not in any way noted in the bible.

("While the concept of Pangaea, and the theory of plate tectonics in general, poses a problem for young-earth creationists, who hold that the Earth is but thousands of years old, the science is supported by a wealth of geographical, paleontological, and geological evidences and is widely accepted. The name Pangaea was apparently first used in 1920 by the German Alfred Wegener, the "father of the theory of continental drift.")

2) the idea of a much more flattened earthly profile is not mentioned anywhere in the bible, and is this a therefore an example of Selective Revisionism

3) Then, BAMM!; VERY magically (there's that necessary word again...), Mts. Everest, McKinley, St. Helens, Fuji-sama and all the others, all popped up in the subsequent years, to their current height!

4) And then vast volumes of water disappeared! Poof!

5) Must have been quite the period of vast global volcanism, earthquakes, plate tectonics run amok, etc., huh?

6) All of which, very strangely, went entirely un-noted in ANY history books. {Perhaps it all happened in a few days following the hydrological drainage reversal event. You know, guys; of all dem flood waters back down down into their rabbit holes? Which, of course, pushed the subsided mountains back up!}

Oh sorry: I meant to use the right word here: sublimation!(i.e.: to change from one state to another!)

Oh! I see! Perhaps the water was all stored as hyper-pressurized steam in the underground Godly boiler rooms that Satan and His minions keep up to a full head-o-steam? Using coal that formed, oh wait: sorry! coal all made up immediately after the great flood? Nope: impossible!

Oh no; another conundrum!

Meh-bee it was natural-gas fired? Nope: that also would have required an ancient earth, the initial growth of vast global jungle vegetation, then burial in sediments, then the formation of coal, oil and gas deposits, post Cretaceous Period, by heat and pressure and further sedimentation.

But... but.... now we're getting boxed in to a technical corner again!

Time to punt the reality ball out of the arena!

And the star punter is: Euesbius the Imaginator?

It all fits this interesting descriptor of sublimating continents (hee heeee...) to a "T": "the faery tale and never ending cornucopia of utter nonsense and willful ignorance supporting more pure nonsense." is, in fact, whatever this creative toadie comes up with.

What fun! A gen-you-whine nut-job!
