If Noah was in another sack of the body than the stomach the lack of air would've killed him in less than 3 days.
Edit: first comment, yay!

Why is it not possible? Stomach acids, suffocation... need I go on?
Sure, it's theoretically possible for a fish that could've ate Jonah and allowed him to live inside to have existed, but that doesn't mean it's very fucking likely. For one it's been only a couple thousand years since the story of Jonah was written. Things don't evolve that fast, and we have no indication that there was ever any species that had any of the genetic mutations necessary to be able to digest things without very quickly killing them.
Also we have a huge amount of transitional fossils for man, dinosaur, and virtually every other animal. Do some research, douchebag.

You know what? We call this "lying".
1/9/2009 7:38:12 AM
is it not coincidently possible or plausible for a different type of large fish live in the time of Noah that swallowed him and spit in on shore of his destination
Not even remotely. Six thousand years is far too short for any noticable variation in species, and no such creature is known to exist.

First of all, whales aren't fish. They're mammals like Jonah.
Second...oh, why bother with this? Life is too short.

You know that acid that breaks down the food in your stomach so you can digest it? Well after Jonah died of most likely drowning his body would've been eaten away by the stomach acid of the fish.

No. None of the things "fmko" said are possible. In fact, while not terribly offensive, this may be the most concentrated fail I've ever seen in a single fundy quote. If one could bottle this kind of fail one could lower the grade of every student on the planet.

'..why is the Jonah in the whale not plausible?'
Why is the Jonah in the whale plausible?

"there were no fish large enough for a man to be inside a whale"
So... If I buy a big car, I can fit more baggage on my bicycle?

What the fuck is wrong with these people?

Noah was an invention of Gilgamesh, much as in the same fashion as the Arthur C. Clarke novels.
Then again, fundies regard Babylonian fairy tales as being the truth.
1/9/2009 10:02:25 AM
Oh, whales are mammals. As such they have these things called digestive systems that tend to break down anything they swallow.
1/9/2009 10:12:44 AM
What bugs me is that this is some kind of argument against evolution. It is a remote, and by remote I mean almost impossible, chance that such a creature could have existed. However, one does not need evolution do completely discredit the story simple biology does all for us.
1/9/2009 10:45:09 AM
Whales don't have all that big a swallow! And even if they did, there are gastric juices and lack of oxygen to explain. Oh the stupid hurts!
1/9/2009 10:59:02 AM
Well, it's technically possible. But while we're moving in the realm of possibilities, this one is on the same level as cyklops, bird-people and reverse gravity.
1/9/2009 11:01:05 AM
Well, we did discover a whale last year that had evolved an apartment suite with modern plumbing and central air exchange in its stomach, so I guess it's POSSIBLE.

For the record, the Hebrew bible says "large fish", not whale. That is a late interpretation.
And it's a massive fail in biology.

Evidence, have you heard of it?

Since fundies believe in the bible, why are the adventures of Harry Potter not plausible?
1/9/2009 12:26:14 PM
Because whales didn't evolve with men in their stomachs?
Got any more bright questions?
1/9/2009 12:27:01 PM
Since atheists believe in evolution, why is the Jonah in the whale not plausible?
Because he would have been digested by stomach acids, as whales are not equipped for tenants.
