Noah's Ark - Was a pair of Kangaroo also in it? How did it cross sea? Australia
January 7, 2010 5:15am CST
Bible tells that a pair of all the animals were taken in Noah's Ark and after the floods receded, it landed.. Does it mention the exact location where did it land? Lets think that it landed in some place in Europe-Asia-Africa Land mass. Was a pair of kangaroos also in the Ark? How did the Kangaroos cross the sea and reached the Island Continent Australia? Did the Noah's Ark land in Australia? If so, then how other animals cross the sea to do to different continents and regions..

Hi systems, The story of Noah's Ark is simply another myth for which the Bible is famous. There are similar stories in other cultures which makes me suspect that such legends may many go back much further then we suspect and might even refer to the end of the last ice age. There were great and advanced civilizations in the past, some probably more advanced then we are today. They may have known about the ice age and after their destruction, some stories would have survived. Anyone can imagine how such stories would have changed after being repeated by word of mouth for thousands of years. Such stories are not meant to be taken literally. Blessings.

Hi magtibaygom, It's clear that we get our information from completely different sources, and by the way it's a known fact that the dinosaur had gone from the earth long before man came on the scene. However, it's always best to agree to disagree and we may later find that there are things on which we can agree. Blessings.

@magtibaygom The biblical story of Noah and his Ark is absolutely fiction. I'm not saying there wasn't a great flood. I'm sure throughout history, there's been several, all across the world and there is evidence to prove them. I'm not even saying some guy might not have built some sort of sailing vessel to ride out a particularly bad flood. I AM saying that God did not instruct some dude to build an Ark and collect a pair of all of the known animals and ride out the flood that He was bringing to wipe out the sinful dregs known as the rest of mankind :)) except of course, for Noah, 4 chicks and the rest of the fam. Flood myths abound. Pre biblical and post biblical as well. Have a loot at what the general consensus thinks that they know on the subject (aka wikipedia;) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flood_myth As for dinosaurs, I believe there were some human like mammals around at the time, but they were not able to come into prominence until the dinosaurs went extinct...thank god! :)) Species go into extinction all of the time. It wasn't just the dinosaurs. One day it's possible that we humans will have the same fate. It happens. Once again, you can always start with wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extinction_event and do your own research from there. @Pose123 - you may be right. We really have no idea of the minds of those that have been here in the deep past. It's highly possible that there could have been some society that existed that faded into nothingness. I can see it happening in our current society. If we wiped each other out (another possibility:)) and only a few people survived the aftermath, what do you think they would think when they found remnants of our current culture thousands of years later? They might find a Stephen King book, take it as literal and thus born a legend that may exist for a thousand years afterward :))

I think that in the times when most of these religious books were written or passed down orally, communication was not very developed in the sense that people of one area was not aware of people on other corners of the globes. So to those who started the story of Noah and the Ark, their world began and ended with that particular region and its people and other flora and fauna. Most probably they were unaware of Australia or else the kangaroos would definitely have found their place on the ark.
