For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: How long was the ark afloat?

Here are the answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

For seven months or so.

In the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, the ark rested upon the mountains of Ararat.” (Genesis 8:4)

For at least ten months.

The water decreased steadily until the tenth month; in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, the tops of the mountains became visible.” (Genesis 8:5)

(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)

5 out of 5

I experienced some technical issues with my “God’s Creation of Sea Creatures” Home School teaching series for ages 4-5 in which I lost electronically my lesson on the Stingray.  I’m rather sad to see that I lost it since I accidently cut and paste the wrong thing over it.  I don’t know if I’m going to reconstruct the original lesson as they take some time for me to write out and plan as lessons.  For now for this Wednesday I’ll post a series from the blog “Biblical Beginnings” that explores the Molecular Machines Within Our Bodies.  This were part of a series she did to teach her own child so its right up my alley with homeschooling young ones.
