New Evidence for Creation!

Since we have seen recently how recent scientific research into
the changing body temperature of man has established that humanity
is no more than a few thousand years old, I have now discovered
new evidence that the Ark was constructed in accord with scientific
principles.  Creationism is triumphing!

Pandering immoral atheistic evolutionist so-called scientists
often mock the reality of the Ark by saying that it could not contain
one pair of all kinds.  Unfortunately, some creationist scientists of
weak faith have responded to this criticism with suggestions that kinds
are not identical to species, that not all animals need be taken on the
Ark, or other watering down of the truth.

One should consider this evidence.  According to Robert M. May, in
_Scientific American_, October 1992, pp. 42-48, the critical factor in
loading the Ark would be the largest creatures.  The number of species
decreases by a factor of 100 when a typical linear dimension of an
animal increases by a factor of 10.  We can approximate the total
volume of pairs of species of animals of a given size by the following
table:

linear dimension   number of species   total volume    cumulative
(meters)                             of one pair      volume
of each species
(upper bound)
(cubic meters)
5-10                 10              20,000         20,000
1-5                 100              25,000         45,000
.5-1              1,000               2,000         47,000
.1-.5            10,000               2,500         49,500
.05-.1           100,000                 200         49,700
.01-.05        1,000,000                 250         49,950
.005-.01       10,000,000                  20         49,970

Or, consider the dimensions of the Ark as given in Genesis:
300 cubits by 50 cubits by 30 cubits, or (a cubit equaling .48 meter)
144x24x15 = 51,840 cubic meters.  The difference provides quite
adequate quarters for the family of Noah.

Finally, not only is it possible to fit all species of land and
air animals on the Ark, but it is clear that the author of this plan
had a very good idea of the size distribution of these animals! Can
this good fit be explained as just being a coincidence? This is
irrefutable evidence for the reality of the Ark, the fixity of species,
and creationism!
