Noah's ark question,, lol, I am about over it!

Okay DS is 6 and he constantly asks me how all the animals didn't eat each other on Noah's ark! He was smart enough to know that fish couldn't be in a wooden boat, I bypassed that because of the flood, so all the fishy had a place.. It is his favorite story, but he says there is no way for it to be true,,LOL Does your kiddo question stuff like this,, I think he is going to be a private detective when he grows up!  This is not a religious question, he questions jack and the beanstalk, or what ever, it is a question about does your kid play detective,, please do not recatogorize me,, this isn't a debate,, JUST FOR FUN!

  • Well, I don't know the answer either . . . I guess you could tell your son that Noah brought enough food on board for all the animals so they didn't have to eat each other. :-)

  • Tell him the truth - there are a lot of people that agree with him and feel there isn't any way for it to be true.

  • Tell them that had their own seperate areas in stalls on the boat kinda of like a zoo or a barn does, that way they couldnt get to each other. My kids havent asked any questions like that yet about the bible. But i am prepared if they do lol.

  • Genesis 7:2 (New International Version, ©2011)
    2 Take with you seven pairs of every kind of clean animal, a male and its mate, and one pair of every kind of unclean animal, a male and its mate,
    there were more than two sets of animals on the boat. my friend who doesnt believe in God wanted me to put they ate the sinners of the world noah fished them out of the water.
