retro respect, dude.

The longest day of the year here in Britain. It’ll be light until nearly bedtime.
Since my last post I have been thinking a lot about Noah’s Ark. If any of you reading this believe that there actually was an ark, maybe you could explain the following:-
To accommodate two members of every species, and foodstuffs sufficient to last them for, lets say, forty days, the ark would have to have been the size of North Wales. How did Noah find the manpower, let alone the wood, to create such a craft?
The combined weight of all the animals and their supplies would, in any case, ensure that the ark wouldn’t have a hope of floating.
Where did Noah find the penguins, polar bears, tapirs, Tasmanian devils, kangaroos, American squirrels, Indian elephants, dormice and pine martens?
We are told that – representing the human race – Noah and his family were the only ones of God’s children to be saved and repopulate the world. Where then did Africans, Indians, Eskimoes, Native Americans, Chinese and White people come from subsequently? This was after all between 5 and 6000 years ago (according to the Fundamentalists), and even if those picky religious types did accept the idea of evolution this would be a woefully short time for individual races to evolve in various countries of the world.
Really. Think about it. It’s all nonsense.
