Did god just drop the animals in the ark for him or did Noah still have to move them into the ship and arrange them once inside?
Where was the food for 2 of every species stored for 190 days
What about food after the fact? If all life on Earth was decimated, what would all of the remaining creatures eat? I suppose some plant life may have remained after being submerged under tens of thousands of feet of water, but what would the carnivores eat?
Also, how did all of the saltwater creatures survive? The amount of rain required to cover the tallest peaks on Earth(about 27,000 feet or so) would definitely throw off the salinity of the world’s oceans. Ask anyone that owns a saltwater fish tank and they’ll tell you that altering the salinity of the creatures’ surroundings that much would kill most of them. The thousands of feet of added water would also affect the plant life on the bottom of the oceans. It would kill the coral reefs, in turn killing all of the creatures that live in or around the reef. The ecosystem of the ocean is incredibly complex and fragile and most likely would not have survived anything of this magnitude.
Phil- I’m not ripping on anything, just trying to get people to think outside of their little box and explore some alternatives.
