Is this version any less likely?

My niece, Lexi, told my sister about the story of Noah’s Ark today:

“It’s the big ship with all the animals that Uncle Sam flew and it came down and crushed the Earth.”


Not quite the version that appears in the Bible, but is it really any less likely than every species of animal voluntarily making its way to the Middle East (including penguins and polar bears, and depending upon your level of fanaticism, dinosaurs), climbing aboard a boat in just before a worldwide flood, and somehow repopulating the planet one the flood water dissipated despite the lack of genetic diversity?

I kind of like Lexi’s version better.

  1. No matter how fanatical one might be, to believe dinosaurs were on the ark is just plain ignorant.

    As anyone who’s ever watched Robot Chicken knows, dinosaurs, unicorns, minotaurs, cyclopes, and dragons all shared one fate that day – they were purposely told the wrong time to arrive.
