the purpose of this thread is analyze how creationists and scientists reach their conclusions.
kelly solved the problem of "how did the predators feed on noah's arc" by answering "they were all vegetarians". woodmorappe i believe thought that predators could survive on vegetables.
here is what i have trouble accepting. you have a problem. and your answer solves the problem. but how did you come to that answer? scientists would require proof. but creationists don't. they have a "proof" (the bible) about a distant related subject (noah's flood happened exactly like in the bible). having accepted that subject as absolutely true, creationists feel they can get to new "truths". so they say god made predators eat vegetables. and here comes another problem in creationist thinking:
some say god made all animals vegetarians
some say god made the carnivores eat veggies for that trip
some say god made most of the animals hibernate
these are different answers yet no creationist is saying "hey, my hibernation theory is better than your "let them eat veggies" theory". why? because none of them really have proof of what they claim. so they cannot really argue. as long as their theory fits the axiom that the bible is the literal historical document of those times, it goes. so i could say that the carnivores on noah's arc ate nothing at all because god sustained them. who can disprove me?
