"I didn't even bother to include the giant reptiles of the Paleozoic, nor the millions of species of insects that alone wouldn't fit in the ark."

This attitude is why our argument is not going anywhere. If you had of mentioned that you believed it immpossible the insects could be oin board, I would have responded with the reason. But you did not ask. This shows you are not looking for the truth, but are trying to ignore it.

"As Chris alluded, you can have T-Rex floating in the air. He must be on a deck. T-Rex requires more than 5' of height. If your total height is 44 feet, then with our beasts from the Jurassic and giant mammals from the Cenozoic, at best you can only imagine 2 or 3 decks. This shrinks your 1.54 million cubic feet to around 100,000 sq.ft. About the size of a small warehouse. No big surprise."

Only two or three decks? Your math is severly flawed. Let's say one level (with the big animals) was 9 feet high. That leaves 35 feet. Break the rest up into 5 foot levels, and you have 8 levels altogether. Plenty of room. Don't forget the animals were not fully grown. And dinosaurs growth rates are not nearly as fast as you think.

"If you have over 1,000 species of dinosaurs alone, how are you going to fit them in a square footage vessel of only 100K/sq. feet? Come on, Sam, use your brain."

Not thousands. Hundreds. And most dinosaurs are rather small. I am using my brain, thank you very much.

"Sam, I don't know what kind of delusional thinking you are accustomed. As far as I know, your parents raised you in an outhouse and fed you only sunflower seeds every day. To think that you can actually think you are making a rational reply only boggles my mind. Are you serious? I sure hope Aurino is right about you. If you honestly think that you have posted anything close to being rational, well, I'll I can say is good luck. You're gonna need it."

Of course this is easy for anyone to say. Heck, I could sit here and post the whole day about how Harv is a complete moron. But what good does this do us? None.
