There's been a lot in the atheist blogosphere lately about AIG and the idiotic Ark Park being subsidized by the government. 

I just had a funny thought and I'd love to know if anyone can actually do the math on this. 

For the sake of argument, if the "Ark" actually did exist and carry 2 of every species (7 of the "clean" ones) on the planet, PLUS (as is propositioned by AIG and the Creation "museum") the dinosaurs...

 

Wouldn't that much weight simply sink the boat?

I mean, first off the boat would have to be much more massive than what is recorded in the buy-bull anyway, but beyond that I'm thinking the sheer mass of all of those critters packed in such a confined space would simply outweigh the boat's buoyancy and it would never have floated anyway.  If anyone knows how to do the actual calculations on that, or knows where they've already been done, please let me know.  I'd love to see if my suspicion is correct.  If it is, it's yet another crack in the fable to bring up when faced with a buy-bull literalist.

 

Anyway, I'm sure their answer would simply be "Goddidit!" which is always the answer from IDiots when faced with simple scientific reality.

 

I love how they try so desperately to sound scientific when really all of their answers boil down to "God can do whatever He wants, so Nyah nyah na nyah nyah!... doody-head."

Okay,

1: It's pointless anyways, because you'd have to have transported every species from all the other continents prior to the flood, in order to have them aboard during the flood.

2: There was no worldwide flood. That would have left some serious marks on every damned continent.

3: They would have to have transported every species back to all the other continents afterward.

 

4: You can't. Not even with a modern carrier fleet.

 

Now if you'll excuse me, I think I'm going over there now to argue some of the finer points of "My Little Pony"

Perhaps I'll finish it off with a healthy "Superman" debate.

There's not a bit about that story which isn't inherently flawed which means if someone believes it, they are doing so outside and contrary to all rational thought. Any attempts at convincing them will ultimately be met with the argument that you need more faith while, conversely, a complete lack of faith will help one understand what (if anything) actually occurred.

God turned them all into carnivores and they ate the dinosaurs - which is why there are no dinosaurs today
