13. Good grief, Jesus wasn't on the ark. That was Noah. Jesus wasn't for another couple thousand yrs.

Old testament. Old, not AD but wayyyyyyyyy BC.

According to a strict reading of the Book of Genesis, which contains information about the lifespans of important characters in Hebrew tradition, Noah was born around 1056 years after the date of creation, which is thought by some to have been approximately 6000 years ago. He went on to live exactly 950 years, and so lived approximately 5000 to 4000 years ago.

According to the Biblical chronology Noah was 600 years old when the flood occurred at around 2300 BC. He also is recorded as living a further 350 years after it. See Genesis 9 v 28-29. Thus he died at around 1950 BC.

Found my answer:

How could all species of animals fit in the ark?

They didn't. All of the kinds of animals that Noah had in his stockyard were put in the ark, but these were domesticated ranch animals and there were less than 280 of them.


Weird. So giraffes evolved from goats? Oh dang. That evolution issue again.
