This doesn't represent my position at all, because I'm not sure what my position is to be honest. But having grown up in a family of paleontologists and geologists, I know how they think. My father would tell you that not all life was destroyed during the flood. He would tell you that the flood was local and that as far as Noah was concerned, it killed all life. He believes that the earth was totally submerged during the flood, which was necessary for the earth to be baptized, however, it might have only been an inch deep in places. There are records of civilizations who survived the great flood, or at least were alleged to have survived it.

Admittedly, it is difficult to imagine that Noah had every kind of animal on the ark. From the polar bear to the wallabee and everything in between, it's unfathomable. Unless, of course, you consider that perhaps God sped up the evolutionary process that allowed the many different species of animals that we have on the earth today.

My own feelings is that man and dinosaur didn't co-exist, but I'm up for anything. In general, I'm very open minded. I enjoy studying about everything from Greys to those who say the moon landing was a studio trick, to those who claim that there is civilization on Mars, to the hollow earth claims, and the flat earth claims, and find a lot of compelling arguments in their positions. Not that I believe any of it, because I don't, but I don't dismiss it all, either. I just enjoy reading all the different perspectives.

I know this didn't help you. I just thought I'd share my own feelings.
