> To do this is to assert that every species alive today (besides sea creatures) exists only because it lived through the flood on the ark.
A further problem: if all the world was flooded out... that means the fresh water and salt water sea critters were dumped into the same vast pond. Was that pond fresh or salt? Either way, it would have wiped out vast groups of critters and sea plants... and the survivors then had to evolve specialization into fresh or salt water forms after the flood subsided. Uh.... yeah.
Agreed about the mixing of salt and fresh water.
Read The Science of God by Gerald Schroeder (an MIT physicist).
Schroeder also (this is important!) happens to be a Jew, and correctly points out that the word for world/earth used is aretz, or adamah, IIRC, or some word that carries the implication that the flood disaster may have been a localized REGIONAL event.
A real eye opener of a good book, written by a physicist who holds a Biblical understanding.
Schroeder points out continually that there's less discrepancy between Biblical and scientific understanding than the popular culture would have us all believe.
