Critics of the Bible and the worldwide flood like to make the statement that all the different species of creatures would never be able to fit into the Ark. This statement shows that they really don’t know much about the Flood, and second, they have no idea how big the Ark really was.
There have been estimates by those who wish to discredit the Biblical flood account, that the number of animals supposedly on the Ark would have been in the millions, and therefore it couldn’t have happened. These type of estimates of the number of animals are not only wrong, but they border on the absurd, by people who simply don’t know the scriptures or more often just wish to disprove the Flood account.
Notice that the scriptures say “kinds” of animals, not species. For instance, there was two of the dog family, two of the pig family, two of the horse family and so on. In the thousands of years since the flood, the animals that were aboard the Ark could easily have diversified into the varieties that we know today.
There were seven of each of the clean animals. However, there were comparatively few animals that were classified as clean.
There have been more reasonable estimates of the number of animals on the ark ranging from 15,000 to 35,000. Of these, there are very few really large animals, and very young animals could have represented these. It is conceivable that many animals aboard the Ark were young animals. Even if they were all adult animals and they numbered 35,000, there would have been more than adequate space for them.
Naval architects made up a scale model of the Ark and determined that it would certainly be large enough to hold a pair of each kind of animal, bird, and insect we have today, as well as Noah and his family, and a vast food supply.
The Ark was an enormous vessel, with the three decks it had a combined area of 101,250 square feet and a capacity of over one and a half million cubic feet. It was a ship of over 43,000 tons, and nearly equal in size to the Titanic. The Ark’s actual cubic volume and tonnage were not exceeded until the arrival of the oil supertankers.
To care for thousands of animals would have been a daunting task for eight people, even when we consider that the animals were inactive and would require much less food than normal. We have to believe that the omnipotent God had a hand in the care of his creatures. It is possible that they were in a semi-dormant state or a type of hibernation.
The entire Noachian Flood was a supernatural event, and the gathering and care of the animals were simply part of God’s plan.

Genesis 7:11-12 tells us that the windows of heaven were opened and it rained upon the earth for forty days and nights. Verse 19 states that “the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth, and all the high hills under the whole heaven were covered.”
So where did all that water come from? To begin with we know that the mountains before the flood were not nearly as large as the mountains are now. There is scientific evidence that our present mountain chains were formed at the end of the flood when the tectonic action was reshaping our planet. A simple proof of this lies in the fact that nearly 90% of the earth’s surface is made up of sedimentary bedrock, indicating that the earth was indeed covered with water at some time.
Proof that our present mountains were once at sea level is affirmed by the fact that fossils of sea creatures have been found on every mountain chain on earth. Continue reading
The apostle Peter warned us that in the last days before the end times, there would be a new philosophy that would deny that there ever was a worldwide flood. They would deny that God created the world, the existence of God, and the coming end-time judgment by fire. Today we see this taking place exactly as Peter had predicted. (2 Peter 3:3-1)
In this book, I offer proof of creation by an omnipotent God and a global flood as God’s judgment of a sinful world. It provides evidence as to what the earth was like before the flood. It was a world, that after creation God had declared very good. Even after the fall of man, it was still paradise compared to the world we know today. The effects of catastrophic worldwide flood changed this planet drastically.
I have brought together the findings of geologists, biologists, microbiologists, paleontologists, paleobotanists, astronomers, physicists, astrophysicists, biophysicists, geochronologists, biochemists and many other experts to prove that the Bible is 100% accurate. They give scientific evidence that there was a global flood, evidence of a created world, evidence that proves evolution is impossible, and much, much more.
Occasionally, I post evidence showing evolution has never occurred and in fact, cannot happen. When I do it always draws a lot of criticism from those that believe in evolution. It is to them that this blog is directed.
Some comments are simply for my enlightenment, but many are downright hateful and a few I have to delete because of foul language. Why do those that believe in evolution care what Christians believe? I hope anyone that leaves a comment on this will read the whole article first, otherwise, it will be obvious in their answer if they didn’t.
This zealous criticism seems to be one-sided since those that believe in creation are not attacking the evolutionists for their belief. Continue reading
Noah and the Great Flood: Proof and effects
I am not a scientist. However, I have brought together the findings of geologists, biologists, microbiologists, paleontologists, paleobotanists, astronomers, physicists, astrophysicists, biophysicists, geochronologists, biochemists and many other experts to prove that the Bible is 100% accurate.
This book includes:
Proof of a global flood.
Evidence of what the people and earth were like before the flood.
How the flood changed the geology of the earth.
Proof the Bible is the divine word of God.
Proof that evolution is impossible.
Proof the world is not billions of years old.
Evidence of the accuracy of the Bible.
Plus much, much more.

Taken from “Noah and the Great Flood: proof and effects”
For over a century evolutionists have promoted their theory that organisms inherently improve themselves through progressive inherited change over time. They have done this by claiming it to be a scientific fact rather than just an unproven theory. They have managed to include it in college studies. They have done such a great job that sadly, even Christians have accepted their theories as truth. Even though there is no evidence within the fossil records to support evolution, there are a great many people who believe there is. This is mostly due to the fact that evolution has been propagandized as science, and has been taught in our universities as if it was fact rather than just a theory.
Even though evolution has not and cannot be proven, it has been advocated as scientific fact, to the point that even Christians are misled. A quote by professor and paleontologist David M. Raup, show how bad this problem is.
“One of the ironies of the evolution-creation debate is that the creationists have accepted the mistaken notion that the fossil record shows a detailed and orderly progression and they have gone to great lengths to accommodate this ‘fact’ in their Flood geology.” (David M. Raup, Evolution and the Fossil Record, Science, Vol 213, July 17,1981)
The theory of evolution demands evidence of fossils of transitional specimens, the missing links. Yet, there are absolutely no transitional specimens to be found anywhere. There are claims, but none actually exist. Most amazing is the fact that Darwin, himself, wrote about this as did other evolutionists. Continue reading
The Bible says that man and all the creatures lived at the same time. Evolutionists claim that dinosaurs were extinct 60 million years before man walked the earth. Any proof that man lived along with dinosaurs, simply destroys the theory of evolution. This is something that evolutionist simply will not accept. Any evidence proving that man and dinosaurs lived concurrently is met with resistance and is quickly explained away, sometimes with rather bizarre explanations. However, the proof still exists that dinosaurs were here for some time after the flood.
The Creation Evidence Museum of Texas has a set of Cretaceous footprints discovered by archaeologist Alvis Delk. This fossil of Glen Rose limestone consists of a dinosaur footprint (Acrocanthosaurus) on top of an eleven-inch human footprint. The human footprint matches several other fossil footprints in the area. Extensive laboratory testing verified the authenticity of both tracks. Continue reading
