Nonsense of Noah
There was no way for these animals to survive after leaving the Ark. The land would have been a sodden muddy swamp - just like New Orleans after Katrina
They live only in Australia. Their diet is so restricted--to a few subspecies of eucalyptus--that they're threatened now by destruction of the only kinds of trees they will eat. It's also hard to imagine them migrating. Over many generations they might slowly spread through an area--but travelers, they ain't.
And when they did migrate over 9,000 miles, in a tiny herd from Ararat to New South Wales, eating a convenient trail of long-disappeared eucalyptus (which took how many years after the Flood to grow?), they left no trail of koala fossils behind.
A suggestion for creation "researchers": put together a real research expedition! Find the trail from northern Turkey to Australia. Find those fossilized eucalyptus leaves, koala footprints, and koala bones. While you're at it, turn up a few kangaroos, giant moas, marsupial lions, Tasmanian wolves, and platypuses along that superhighway to the South Pacific.
Just Curious:None of the Animals died during the year? A miracle!
The animals had to eat on the way back. If they wouldn't have had to eat, God would not have instructed Noah to take food on board.
SO... they had to have food on the way back.
There would have been no plants after the ground had been submerged for nearly a year. God did not just regenerate the vegetation. If he instantly regenerated the vegetation, than what was the point of saving two animals and eight humans. He could just as easily regenerated them too.
What would the carnivores have eaten? Whatever prey they ate would have gone extinct.
The trip back to "Native Lands"
Why woulid the animals even want to return to their native habitat? If they were able to survive in the area near the Ark, there would have been no reason for them to return to the homeland. Animals are not sentimental.
And how did the New World monkeys or the Australian marsupials or the Polar Bears of the Artic or the Emperor Penguins of the Antartic find their way back after the flood subsided? Especially if, according to Ark Apologists, the earth now had oceans and mountains. The geography would have been entirely different from when they entered the Ark.
WAIT - THERE'S MORE!
Listen to this...
8:20 And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar
He killed and burned every clean beast and every clean fowl? What's left?
Just Curious:What evidence is there that all species originated in Turkey?
None. But that's what the record should look like if the Ark landed on Mt. Ararat.
