The Great Dinosaur Mistake

The Biblical Framework

Genesis 6 reveals that at one time in the past it was necessary for God to judge the entire world through a great water cataclysm. We find the reason for this in Gen. 6:11-18:

"The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it. And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die. But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy son's wives with thee."

Here we have a picture not only of God's judgment but of God's provision and protection as He instructs a man named Noah to build a boat to preserve life upon the earth. In this passage Noah is given instructions for the building of the boat.

Is it feasible to believe this account? Is the account reasonable? Some skeptics tell us that it would have been impossible for a man in Noah's time to build a boat large enough to preserve all of life. He maintains there are too many animals living on the earth for such a feat. He also ridicules the concept of a worldwide flood.
