Quote# 59863

Atheists, where did the fish in the Great Lakes come from?
You all say that million of years ago, a bunch of glaciers cruised through and dug gigantic holes in the area between Canada and the Midwestern united states. These holes eventually filled up with rain and became the Great Lakes.

My question to you is, where did the fish come from? If they really just sort of happened, how did the lakes get filled up with fish? When it rains here in my neck of the woods, we usually get some pretty big mud puddles, but those puddles never get filled up with fish.

Isn't it much more plausible to say that large holes formed during Noah's Flood, and that after the Flood waters went down, the holes remained filled up with water and voila, the Great Lakes? That would explain why the fish are there, because they would have already been there during the Flood. When the water went down, and the Lakes stayed there, the fish just stayed in the lakes.

Too much stupid for my brain to handle.

Either that or somebody put them there. But that would be too plausible, right?

Via Saint Lawrence river. Got any more questions?

2/27/2009 8:46:31 AM



If boats can travel up and down the damn river, what the hell is stopping a fish from doing that? There ARE fish that can go in both fresh and saltwater. I mean, fuck, how stupid are you?!

In Germany where I live we have filled some former coal mining holes with water to make us some lakes. Now we see fish and all sorts of other life in it. Question: where is the global flood that brought the fish into the lake?

Hint: ducks and other birds sometimes carry fish eggs over land by accident.

No, it's not more plausible. It's nuts.

This bloke is an idiot who boasts of having lost a Yahoo account. From his profile

"I was banned because Yahoo apparently wishes to silence the message of God. But I am back. Neither me or God will be silenced.

This shows that Yahoo is against both me and our Lord.

God has ordained me as an Earthly spokesman for Him. Because of this, when I speak, it would be wise to listen. You may disagree, but remember, since God has chosen me as one of his spokesmen, disagreeing with me is pretty much the same as disagreeing with God.

I will do God's work regardless of who tries to stop me."

you are aware the great lakes naturally link up with other bodies of water correct?

Please, Michigan has enough problems as is, leave us and our wonderful lakes out of your cult bullshit

Palifox
He was probably that asshole religious spammer that everyone reported. He was spamming every Yahoo account he could with the 'message of gawd'. Of course he's not realized he was a blight and people didn't like it, so it must be yahoo silencing his 'word'.
Some of these people are so oblivious to thought it's a wonder they remember how to breathe

I live down in the South of the dark continent of Africa - The Third World. We have our witchdoctors, faith healers, missionaries and even the odd blood-sucking, money grabbing, evangelical xtians. Despite the fact that millions are illiterate and superstition is rife, I have yet to encounter or hear of anyone in our part of the planet as stupid as this Soldier for Salvation.

I thought the US of A was a first world country - but it seems to be populated by millions of boring morons.

bignastydragon

this is a great theory he has. thankfully we have more plausable theories on this subject which can be tested and have proof.

without going so far as looking at 'outlandish' theories that laypeople might not get, have a little think about salmon, especially wherethey spend most of their lives, and where they're born. and an extra clue for the fundies who've navigated to this site, 'the sea' and 'rivers'.

Isn't it much more plausible to say that large holes formed during Noah's

Let me just stop you there and say that nothing you could follow that with would be plausible in any way, ever.

...and how do you explain that water in lakes is not salt water?

2/27/2009 10:21:27 AM

RevDG

how the fuck would the lakes be created? water only cuts through land going from a higher point to a lower point so no it couldn't be the flood

... and then the saltwater species evolved to lakeliving species.

You do realize that the great lakes link up with other bodies of water, and that fish know how to swim. Right?

I think it's plausible to say that you are a brainwashed moron.

This idiot thinks the Niagara Falls are a barrier to fish entering the upper 4 Great Lakes. Fundies and reasoning, they find one thing that they think supports their argument and they stop looking.

O.K., lets assume the waters of the flood filled up "large holes" like the place of the great lakes and the oceans.
Why then aren´t the salinity levels in the waters of the oceans and lakes the same?

My question to you is, where did the fish come from? If they really just sort of happened, how did the lakes get filled up with fish?

Considering how the Great Lakes are the "largest group of freshwater lakes on Earth," having a large watershed, I wouldn't think it would be hard for them to evolve there.

This idiot thinks the Niagara Falls are a barrier to fish entering the upper 4 Great Lakes.

And, true the Niagara Falls separates Erie and Ontario Lakes, but even if fish couldn't evolve in/around the lakes naturally, they could always have swum up the Mississippi and into the lakes, right? Aside from the fact that Niagara Falls has eroded and so gotten bigger over time, right?

And, why did all the fish have to necessarily come from Noah's Flood anyway? Why couldn't they have been decended from the fish that were initially left there after the waters receded from the glaciers?

Atheists, where did the fish in the Great Lakes come from?

When a daddy fishie and a mommie fishie love each other very much...

You all say that million of years ago, a bunch of glaciers cruised through and dug gigantic holes in the area between Canada and the Midwestern united states. These holes eventually filled up with rain and became the Great Lakes.

Those words have never left my mouth. While the statement may in fact be true, I've never said it. Therefore, you are wrong in saying "You all say."

My question to you is, where did the fish come from? If they really just sort of happened, how did the lakes get filled up with fish? When it rains here in my neck of the woods, we usually get some pretty big mud puddles, but those puddles never get filled up with fish.

Very quick geology lesson. Lakes are connected to streams and rivers that eventually either run into the ocean themselves, or are connected to other streams and rivers that run into the ocean. Fish swim up those streams and rivers and populate the lakes.

Isn't it much more plausible to say that large holes formed during Noah's Flood

No, it isn't.

after the Flood waters went down, the holes remained filled up with water and voila, the Great Lakes? That would explain why the fish are there, because they would have already been there during the Flood. When the water went down, and the Lakes stayed there, the fish just stayed in the lakes.

That would work except for the following:

1) Any freshwater fish would have died in the large saltwater ocean that supposedly covered the earth.
2) The Great Lakes (and other lakes, streams and rivers) are freshwater. Saltwater fish can't survive in them.
3) There is no evidence of a worldwide flood.

"Isn't it much more plausible to say that large holes formed during Noah's Flood, blah blah blah"

Yes because a puddle a day after rain is just like the great lakes.

Why aren't there tropical fish in the Great Lakes then? God flooded everything, tropical fish swam to the spot, the water was drained, voila - tropical fish in the lakes. It's statistically bound to happen!
