I've tried to invite him here, although I expect a refusal.

Frankly I have better things to do with my life, than wade through 51 minutes of the usual mixture of apologetic fabrications, bullshit and lies peddled by yet another godbot, who thinks his sad little mythology and its assertions dictate how reality behaves. The mere fact that he thinks mythological fantasies need "defending" is an indication that he's more interested in being an ideological stormtrooper for said mythology, than in asking pertinent questions about the assertions contained therein.

if this idiot peddles any of the following fabrications:

[1] "Hydrologic sorting"
[2] "Kinds"
[3] Assertions that mountains purportedly rose tens of thousands of feet less above sea level than their present values just 4,000 years ago
[4] Assertions that the wooden barge in question would have floated, let alone survived the mother of all seasick rides for a year

then I'll know I'm dealing with a bullshit artist of the most feculent order.

This is why it is almost criminal that the old RDF forum is in the sate of decay it now is. Otherwise we could simply point the whole shebang at the mega thread over there.

Or we could just make a whole new comprehensive list of bullet points of why the Noah's Ark story is a fable which requires continuous suspensions of the laws of physics for it to 'work'.

Yeah, but how long would that list be? Might be a nice resource for the forum to have on hand.

We could take a bet on that.... if the wording was kept to the bare minimum, with a link to a relevant article, and a single line spacing between each bullet point.... I'd guess around 18 pages initially, but it could grow waaaay beyond that! :)

I think it would be awesome, because I frequently hear about Noah's Ark from Creationists as an argument supporting their other beliefs, whereas it is a perfect example of just the kind of thing they should be avoiding if they wish to be taken seriously.

If I remember aright, it was never actually compiled together, but just had pages of replies with all the information in.

So people here believe it was a myth? Well at least its a point in the right direction.

Guy who posted video has asked for discussion on the topic in the comments section on Youtube. Funnily enough he didn't provide any decent responses to the questions asked. Then stopped answering altogether. Think he might have though he'd get people praising his logic rather than getting tricky questions that he couldn't answer.
