I suppose you mean macro-evo? I think you are confused. Noah did not have to carry millions of animals on the ark because micro-evolution does indeed occur and many varieties of animals would have developed after the Flood from just a single pair. The reason he had to carry 35,000 (Morris/Whitcomb's guess) is because macro-evo has never happened and never will happen. If macro-evo was possible, there would be no need for an ark to preserve distinct kinds.
|How did Noah manage to carry millions of animals in his arch, since marco-evo never happened?|
Wrong, wrong, wrong, Dave. There are—at minimum—10,000,000 species of organisms on earth today. Ants. Centipedes. Worms. Shrimp. Jawless Fishes. Rodents. Bats. Tubeworms. Sea Anemones. Molds. Fungi. Grasses. Orchids. Oak Trees. How many new species would you need per day if Noah had only 35,000 species on the ark? Can you do the math? That's six species a day, every day, from the time of the flood to the present. Minimum.
How many monkey "kinds" were there on the ark, Dave? How many speciation events among Platyrrhini alone since then? Do you have any concept of how much evolution must have occurred in the last 4,500 years for your "ark" story to be true? How did we get both freshwater and saltwater fish today, if either one or the other (or both) went extinct during the flood? Or did Noah maintain saltwater (or freshwater) aquaria on the ark for a year? How many beetle "kinds," Dave? How many ant "kinds"? Would you care to research how many ant species there currently are in the world? Did they all radiate from one, or ten, or a thousand ant "kinds" over the past 4,500 years?
Dave, your young-earth "hypothesis" is wrong in every particular. No matter what claim you make about it, that claim turns out to be wrong.
And here's the questions just from the last two pages:
HOW DID 5,000 FEET OF WATER LAY 5,000 FEET OF SEDIMENT?
HOW WOULD YOU DATE THE GRAND STAIRCASE STRATA?
HOW DID 35,000 "KINDS" RADIATE OUT TO TEN MILLION SPECIES CURRENTLY IN EXISTENCE?
And you say you don't believe in macroevolution. You actually believe in fantastically-accelerated evolution, far beyond anything postulated by evolutionary biology.
It's just getting worse and worse for you, Dave.
