Old Testament
Noah's Ark

If Noah had different animals from all over the world did he drop them off where they live today or did they walk back?

Some believe that Noah could not have gathered every animal on the earth and build the ark at the same time, he only had animals from his local region. Others would say that Noah didn't do the gathering, but God summoned them to the ark. Exactly how some of the animals who would've been blocked by water made it to the ark is another question, though if God could allow Peter to walk on water, He could've done the same for the other animals.

The ark landed only once, according to The Bible. The animals would have all had to walk back to where they lived, or be transported by God by whatever method He used to get them there in the first place.

Beam me up ScottySome swam back.

all the continents lumped together is called Pangaea. Google video has cool vids of this topic and there's quit a bit of interest about the realness of this "theory". If pangaea existed then all the animals would have walked. I find it odd how the animals in the waters were to die as well, you'd think the sharks would've had a whale of a time feeding on the dead carcasses floating about. I think more occurred than just water flooding the land mass. I purport that the earth increased in size and the continents blasted apart, hence dead fish lol. Then maybe god snuck over to north America and created a few moose, some eagles and those pesky but cute sea lions lol. Of course there is the Bering sea where animals could have walked. Its not impossible for god to do anything, he may have just materialized them in the ark, after building an ark in a desert what would surprise you next lol. Since the bible occupies all of its time in the middle east what went on in north America south America and Australia etc.. didn't matter and god did what he did elsewhere. With every good and great plan there are always loose ends to clean up somehow.

Nearly all ancient Near Eastern religions had a flood story, and the Hebrew religion was no different. Noah and his family were the sole survivors of the world-wide flood of the Hebrew legend recorded in the Book of Genesis, and therefore the putative ancestors of all people living today.

There would be no land animals or people, since all would have perished in the Flood.

Noah got to save all the animals that we know today, but the four horsemen of the Apocalypse get to announce the end of times. It's a toss-up, to me.

Noah was believed to have helped preserve the animal life of the Earth. God informed Noah that he was going to flood the Earth and asked Noah to help save the species of animals by gather 2 of every "unclean" animals and 7 of every "clean" animals. So Noah did and while doing so he built the Ark; a giant wooden boat capable of carrying tons and tons of weight. Later on, he and his family had waited in the Ark when the flood happened with the animals. Either during the flood or after the flood, Noah had sacrificed some of the animals. In the book "What the Bible didn't say" it states that it is most likely that Noah brought 7 pairs of clean animals instead of 7. But MY (Akkere's) hypothesis is that he sacrificed the seventh animal (which is why there was uneven) on the altar. So basically when the great flood had happened, Noah saved animal life.

The term two-by-two refers to the Noah and the Ark story in the Bible. This story can be found in Genesis, the first book of the Bible, when the Lord told Noah and his family to build an ark to save his people from the future flood of the earth. The Lord spoke of leading the animals two-by-two into the ark that Noah built, with the help of his family. This ark was to be filled with all the animals of the world; one male and one female, for reproduction purposes. The animals came to Noah in two's and entered the ark two-by-two.

god told noah to build an arc to carry two of all of the animals.when the flood came noah and his family were safe from the flood. the reason god sent the flood was because the people of the world where misbehaving. this way the animals would not become extinct.

Noah took clean and unclean animals because God told him to, and Noah had strong faith in God(Genesis 6:9 + 7:2). Noah used the 'clean' animals for the purpose of sacrifice to God(Genesis 8:20) (Leviticus 1:10)(Leviticus 1:14)(Leviticus 17:11)

7 clean animals were needed on the ark because when the flood was over, Noah made several sacrifices to God in thanks. Only clean animals could be sacrificed to God, so the 5 extra animals were needed, otherwise, they wouldn't exist today.

User Avatar

it is meant to save noah and his wife and his children and their wives and also some of the animals from a great flood.

User Avatar

The bible doesn't mention specifically what Noah ate. However, it can be assumed that Noah ate some of the clean animals that he brought on the ark. God's command was to bring 7 of each of the clean animals and the unclean animals were to be brought on two by two. So, the assumption is, the clean animals were brought on in excess in order to maintain survival for Noah and his family as well as be offered up for a sacrifice once the waters had cleared.

Only the unclean animals went in pairs into the ark.
