For the past 7 Sundays, I have been talking about the reality of Noah and the flood.
Discussing Creationism: The Initial Argument
Part II: Two Questions about the Ark
Part III:The Volume of the Ark
Part IV: The Weight and Sturdiness of the Ark
Part V:What is a Myth
Part VI: Gilgamesh
Part VII: The Biblical View of Noah
There was another question put forward and that is "How could Noah possibly have gathered all the animals from all over the world?"
Genesis 6:19-20 "And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ar, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female. Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive."
What does this passage say?
That the animals came unto Noah.
This seems impossible to us today because we are not used to the different relationship that existed between man and animals then. Animals did not fear man. Read Gen 9:2-4, where the trusting relationship between man and animal turned to fear.
As well, we know that animals instinctively know what to do when disaster is looming.
