Quote# 5539

Yes, it would be humanly possible to try and replicate the Ark, but not even slighly feasible.

WTF?! || meh


So Noah who's descendants populated the entire Earth wasn't human or the Ark never happened, pick one!

Please tell me you see a problem with that.

Oh, it's feasible. We make larger ships out of better materials these days, and we can carry significantly more on the open sea than Noah ever could have.

Strangely enough, we still couldn't carry two of every creature on a single ship.

So which is it?

Even if he could see the obvious flaw in his argument, I guarantee you that, if he didn't immediately damn you to hell for thinking for yourself, he'd say GODDIDIT.
That's all they have going for 'em: hope that their imaginary friend thought absolutely everything ahead of time, before he created us sinful humans.

So one guy over 2000 years ago could build one by himself, using primitive tools and techniques, but we as a society today can't replicate that?

Also, since when is *trying* something *not* humanly possible?

"Yes, it would be humanly possible to try and replicate the Ark, but not even slighly feasible."

fea·si·ble (f¶“z…-b…l) adj. 1. Capable of being accomplished or brought about; possible: a feasible plan. See Synonyms at possible. 2. Used or dealt with successfully; suitable: feasible new sources of energy. 3. Logical; likely: a feasible explanation.

Hmmm..., could it be, that you are just another retard in denial? Common sense would dictate that it certainly could.

The sad thing is that it was actually shown that it would be feasible...and this guy didn't realize that he was defeating himself.

@ everyone;
Who said the animals had to be fully grown, it would also make em easier to handle. But you're probably right about their being too many animals.

Umm... why?

Wasn't Noah supposed to have done it with some pretty old-timey tools? What's to stop us now?

And also the fact that some animals eat other animals. As for taking baby animals; if they all grew up without their parents to teach them through example, how did they learn their normal behavioral patterns (like hunting or avoiding being hunted, for example).

you're a moron!

6/17/2011 10:12:42 AM


Yeah. You know what? Search "Ark build" and once you get past small models you find the ark is not only unlikely it's ridiculous. Even with metal framing that boat can't work, the wood will rip itsaelf apart, it can't happen.

And that's one stupid fact-breaker out of 200 stupid things about the Noahcian Flood Story.

6/17/2011 6:55:11 PM


Well, yes, you could try. You could also try to build an inter galactic spacehsip using empty toilet rolls and paper glue, with about the same success.

However, if it had been done before it would be feasible to do so again now. The fact that you argue otherwise suggests that you don't buy the Ark story yourself. Way to shoot yourself in the foot, dude.

6/18/2011 12:36:31 AM


yes?... oh wait, you mean no. so what's there to convince us it worked the first time around?

6/18/2011 12:39:31 AM


Aren't possible and feasible synonyms? And, isn't it always possible to try to do something?

6/18/2011 3:31:19 AM


Don't be silly.

I don't think we'd have a hard time building a giant wooden boat.

6/18/2011 5:29:40 AM


Unfortunately, it is very unlikely that one could carry two of every animal on a boat with the current amount of animal species existing, unless you supported evolution.
