    No, it's not describing something I dont know how it works, I'm describing functions of space and time as we KNOW them to work.

    You're saying maybe other things that fly in the face of current science used to be the case. Ok, at this point you're positing things almost on par with concept of god.

    that doesn't mean I don't have interest in learning how science and nature work
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    But even if you only want to count the species we know of directly, it's still a lot:

    About 1.2 million species have been formally described, the vast majority from the land rather than the oceans.

    So that would still be over a million different species on the Ark, a 500' Ark. There is simply not enough room.

    But of course the Bible says Kind, which you don't know what it means, only that it means exactly enough that it happened. How very... unscientific of you.
    I didn't create the term, God did. I didn't define the term, God did. I show a poodle, a great Dane, a wolf, and a squirrel and nearly 100 out of 100 folks older than 2 will tell you three of them are of the same kind.

    I still await your first.

    I repeat you asked about after they left the ark.
    On the ark they probably ate very little and most likely hibernated.

    and this is a terrible quote. no one continues to research that 2+2=4. It's a truth that was at one time a journey that has now been settled as truth. It's an ended journey. It's the old adage, "It's always in the last place you look" when something is missing. Of course it's in the last place. Who would keep looking?

    Oh, you're saying LIONS hibernated on a sheltered and crowded ark? I can see how that might make sense to you since you already believe they were originally herbivores.

    Wow. So you think the journey for truth has ended, huh?

    How sad.

    And of course, that begs the question: who/what created god?

    (The obvious answer is human beings)

    I can see why you can't understand based on the questions you've given. Again, not necessarily a lion was on the Ark. But it's kind was.

    Which truth are you speaking of? Are folks still searching for 2+2=4? Nope. Yes, once a truth is found the search is over.
