16) Do you think Noah brought dinosaurs on the Ark? After all, it says "all land animals" and if there is no evolution, I suppose they would have been around back then. Do you really think he could have fit two brachiosaurs, two apatosaus, two ultrasaurs, two T-Rexes, two triceratops, AND two procompsognatids? AND have enough to feed them for forty days? AND have enough room for all the other animals?

That is a very good question and here is the reply:

It is very simple to fit all land animals into the ark. Kids! Since when is it stated that he took full grown animals into the ark. After all the eat less and they take up less room.

"Of the birds according to their kinds, and of the animals according to their kinds, of every creeping thing of the ground according to its kind, two of every sort shall come in to you, to keep them alive." Gen 6:20 This verse tells us that Noah didn't have to find the animals, but they came to him. Another thing is that it calls them kinds not species. So he might have only need to bing one dog kind (agruably a dog kind could have desended in to different sub kinds: Wolfs, Cyoties, Dogs. What I'm saying is that a single kind could have many different sub kinds. I'm running out of time so on to other subjects. I will explain more latter.)

Also the ark took 120 years to build. This allowed plenty of time for the animals to come to the ark. Also the world was different pre flood. "And God said, "Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear." And it was so. God called the dry land Earth, and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas. " Gen 1:9-10 now this would suggest that there was one general region where the seas existed. It might be safe to say that there was one ocean, but it was big enough for there to be multiple seas with in it.

"Take with you seven pairs of all clean animals, the male and his mate; and a pair of the animals that are not clean, the male and his mate" Gen 7:2

This tells us that Noah brought 7 pairs of clean animals and only 1 pair of clean animals for every kind. Earlier clean animals are called animals or mammals and birds, while creeping things are on clean. This would include, reptiles and the like.
