Another Noah's Ark question, why did God find it necessary to kill off the animals?

Assuming that mankind was so wicked, god needed to wipe them out to start over again - why was it necessary to kill of most of the animals? It can hardly be assumed that the animals were wicked as well. It seems almost cruel that God would do this. If he just wanted to kill of the human population, couldn't he have just sent a plague to kill off everyone but Noah's family?

  • And the cows were low, the dogs were rough, the mules were jackasses, the giraffes were high and the elephants kept blowing their own horn.

  • Gen 6:4 tells us about the fallen angels taking daughters of men. They begat the giants. They mixed the dna of humans and animals. The animals and humans were destroyed because they were not pure. Their dna had been mixed with other animals. Noah was chosen because he still had pure dna. His was not mixed. He was to choose 2 of each animal that had pure dna. When Jesus said, "Like in the days of Noah..." I think He was telling us that the dna will be mixed again. And it is. News article the other day told about a pig with rat dna.

     It says daughters of men not angels fornicating and procreating with Rhinos and lions. I guess you see what you want though.


    Also, obviously God DID make a mistake if he had to destroy the world and start over. Again, you see what you want though.
