This book on Noah's Ark is a one-of-a-kind compendiuum of information about animal-care methods, food-preservation techniques, animal-handling techniques, etc. It discusses in great detail how 8 people could have cared for 16,000 animals using pre-scientific technology. Whether or not the reader believes in the Bible or not, he or she can be fully confident that my book conveys substantive information about the workability of Noah's Ark and its inhabitants.

From the Author:

Correcting the Critics

The critics' remarks (such as the Bible writers being "goatherders", and the Flood account being "a campfire story") not only display their prejudices, but also speak volumes about their abysmal ignorance about this whole subject.

The rapid origin of new species (in thousands of years or less) is not speculation but demonstrated fact, and is not at all a concession to evolution. The notion about me having Noah standing behind buckets while horses urinate, or post-Flood animals needing to dig out corpses, are nothing more than ridiculous misrepresentations of what I actually wrote. These are also nothing more than false rumors about my book that have been going around for some time, and their appearance in the negative reviews also makes it doubtful if the critics have even bothered to read my book. It is not I, but the critics, who are indulging in fantasy.

Statements about the Ark account violating Occam's razor sound very intellectual, but are widely off the mark. In fact, throughout my work, I have scrupulously avoided speculative scenarios, ad hoc processes, and weakly-supported conjectures. All of the solutions to the putative problems with the Ark account in this book are based on a solid study of low-tech animal-keeping techniques, low-tech husbandry, etc. Moreover, far from being fantastic, speculative, or even theoretical, the techniques and solutions that I cite in this book have been APPLIED by various uneducated, pre-industrial peoples throughout history. Much of the contents of my book discusses and documents this central fact. Finally, I demonstrate in my book that there are often SEVERAL low-tech solutions to putative problems with the Ark, and only one of these solutions will do.

It is obvious that the critics have not even remotely come to grips with the data presented in this book.
