From Creation Minute website (click the link on the right to bring in money for A/N).

The most common question asked about the validity of Noah's ark is, "How could millions of different animals fit on one small boat?"

* First, there were not millions of animals. Not every "kind" of animal was needed to be on board. According to the Biblical text., neither insects nor amphibians would have been taken on board. Only those animals which could not have survived a year long flood needed to be on board. Furthermore, every minor variation of animal (species) was not present. Wolves, foxes, coyote, and dogs could have come from an original dog kind.
* Making the generous assumption that the average animal size is as large as a sheep, and between 2 and 7 of each kind of animal were taken, 16,000 sheep-size animals, at the most, would have been on board. This number could have been as low as 2000 if the Biblical "kind" is equivalent to the family level of modern animal classification. These numbers include every known living and extinct type of mammal, bird, amphibian, and reptile.

The account of Noah's flood is similar to many other Biblical stories. They make perfect sense if you assume they mean exactly what they say and take time to study them carefully.

(emphasis added)

Okay Mr. Hovind. So you can accept a common ancestor from flood times? But think evolution is false? Pick one or the other sir, please. You are embarrassing EVERYONE.

I thought that creationists argue that evolution is impossible because it violates the second law of thermodynamics, if you then say that the second law of thermodynamics does not apply to god then you have to accept that god is outside time and space and therefore quite able to do whatever he wills, the fact that he does not do whatever he wills he is unable to do the bidding of his adherents, his plans are apparently thwarted and he cannot arrange a simple plague to wipe out unbelievers and his son is simply incapable of scheduling his second coming which he has been promising for the last 2000 years, they both seem pretty hopeless.

Apparently ID people do believe in "super evolution" (sped up, with god's help). They just don't want to say natural selection was the determining process.. ya know, "god did it".

This video explains why "super evolution" like this is so bogus, focusing solely on the cheetah (all based on SCIENCE)

"They make perfect sense if you assume they mean exactly what they say and take time to study them carefully."

And therein lies the difference between faith and skepticism.

"...from an original dog kind" - how convenient.

It's another case of wingnuttery; they call it "evolution within kind". Like ID it's an attempt to sound like a reasonable scientific theory - but is, in fact, equally stupid.

Thats amazing, so this wingnut who is so passionate about evolution being false, does believe in it after all, only by another name.
Ive had enough stupidity for one day.
