“Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.” (emphasis added)
This verse tells us that Noah didn’t have to search for the animals, or travel to far away places to bring them on board. And, on the basis of Genesis 1, many creationists believe there was only one continent before the Flood.
The animals simply arrived at the Ark and marched up the ramp, all by themselves. Though this is a supernatural event, one that cannot be explained by our understanding of nature, it is certainly within God’s ability. Even today, we are far from understanding all of the marvelous animal behaviors exhibited in God’s creation: The migration of Canadian geese and other birds, the amazing flights of Monarch butterflies, the annual travels of whales and fish, hibernation instincts, earthquake sensitivity, and countless other fascinating capabilities of God’s animal kingdom.
Sign of Design: I [Carl Wieland] think it’s misleading to talk about any “evolution of language.” Changes in language come about mostly from humanity’s inventiveness, innate creativity, and flexibility, not from random genetic mutations filtered by selection. And languages studied today in the process of change appear mostly to be getting simpler, not more complex.
