Peter: Read the moon landing conspiracists. Or 9:11. You'd be convinced. The big hole in their and your argument is the utterly risible and totally unconvincing alternative they and you offer. But let's park that for now.
andHarry: Look:) All these frauds and blunders have been widely acknowledged and documented elsewhere. Read what Stephen Jay Gould had to say about the conning of the scientific community for years and years by the Piltdown Man fiasco. Bergman provides extensive footnotes for his sources, etc. You are living a life in denial, Peter:)
Peter: Get real and think the earth is 4000 years old and every species from the poles to the tropics including dinosaurs found their way to a boat in the Middle East and survived there together? Right
andHarry: 6000 years, and a single undivided land mass - Pangea, if you like. Hence no problem with access to the Ark. According to Genesis 10:25 and 1 Chronicles 1:19, the Earth was divided in Peleg's time. Also all creatures still followed man. I would argue that when Noah sent our the most intelligent creature on the Ark to chart the receding water we have the first rebellion in the animal kingdom while the home-seeking dove remained obedient; analogous to the present desertion of the gospel by the 'wise and learned'. The raven and it's kindred kind, jays, magpies, etc. with their birdbrains out-think our supposed ape relatives. Interesting.
