    Cool, thanks! But I don't see how that relates to the claims in Genesis. I don't think there is a connection.

    I may have flown over Kentucky, probably several times, but I've never been there at ground level.

    Are you otherwise not free to believe that?
    Now I am very curious for that evidence.
    Now, before you even start to hit the keyboard: you said scientific evidence supporting creation. I am not interested interested in "why evolution can't be true". I want scientific evidence supporting creation. Did the museum really deliver in that department?

    I have a lot of fond memories of the Museum when I visited. Staff were friendly as were the patrons, and the grounds were a great site for a picnic. However, if I was to pick a true stand out favourite, it would have been the conversation between a girl (~12) and her younger sister (~8) standing in front of a diorama of the ark rising on flood waters with a bunch of lions, tigers, bears and people desperately perched on the last bit of dry land

    Younger Sister: What's going to happen to all the lions and tigers?
    Older Sister: They're all going to drown
    Younger Sister: But why? Why do all the animals have to drown
    Older Sister: Well, God can't save all of them

    At that stage the younger girl burst into tears and ran away.

    Christianity in a nutshell for me.

    That's an odd reaction, even for a younger girl.

    Not in my experience, most young children I have encountered hold quite alot of empathy/sympathy with cute cuddly animals, probably why we buy them such as pets. Having said that, I have no experience with what it must be like to find out from your older sister that your omnipotent God isn't omnipotent after all.

    Oh how we have distorted what went on at the flood. We have made it into God destroying a disneyland. Of course satan sure would want it to seem that way.

    Big ole meanie God

    Thanks to science, which likes to play the role of historian.

    Science should stick to things like E being emcee squared, and SN1987A being 168,000 light years away, and how to build a better mousetrap; and leave our history to the Expert.

    Did the 12 year old discuss genetic engineering with her ~8 year old sister??

    That is one form of amalgamation - but there are many forms.

    "Every species of animals which God had created was preserved in the ark. The confused species which God did not create, which were the result of amalgamation, were destroyed by the flood." {1SP 78.2}

    In the Bible God said
    Gen 6
    11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth.
    13 And God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

    That in a nutshell is why God had to destroy not only humans but also animals...

    Yep, makes sense - like a child at play, an all-powerful, omniscient god knowingly created a world so imperfect that it would become totally corrupted to the extent that it would have to be destroyed - not just humans, with their pesky free will, but most of nature too...

    Either that, or He created it ...

    Genesis 1:31a And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.

    Are you saying it is God's fault for creating free will?

    Science misinterprets and mislabels things.
