  • We're seein' allthese different cages.
  • 00:06:38.347 --> 00:06:40.283
  • Looks like you havewater and food.
  • 00:06:40.316 --> 00:06:42.885
  • Bodie: Let's take alook at some of these.
  • 00:06:42.919 --> 00:06:44.587
  • You know, we tried todesign some of these cages
  • 00:06:44.620 --> 00:06:46.656
  • in different sizes.
  • 00:06:46.689 --> 00:06:47.990
  • You got small ones, yougot medium, and you
  • 00:06:48.024 --> 00:06:49.392
  • got big.
  • 00:06:49.425 --> 00:06:51.194
  • You know, why would Noahhave to design each and
  • 00:06:51.227 --> 00:06:52.562
  • every one out forevery single kind?
  • 00:06:52.595 --> 00:06:54.130
  • Let's do somestandardized sizes.
  • 00:06:54.163 --> 00:06:55.598
  • It's easier for them tobuild, manufacturer, and
  • 00:06:55.631 --> 00:06:57.099
  • that sort of thing.
  • 00:06:57.133 --> 00:06:58.468
  • They probablythought through that.
  • 00:06:58.501 --> 00:07:00.236
  • You have some automaticfeeding systems, some
  • 00:07:00.269 --> 00:07:01.737
  • automaticwatering systems.
  • 00:07:01.771 --> 00:07:04.006
  • So you put theseon--not a problem.
  • 00:07:04.040 --> 00:07:05.708
  • Now, with a lot ofanimals, why take the
  • 00:07:05.741 --> 00:07:07.243
  • great big huge ones?
  • 00:07:07.276 --> 00:07:09.212
  • Why not take the smallerones, perhaps the
  • 00:07:09.245 --> 00:07:10.847
  • juveniles old enoughto live on their own?
  • 00:07:10.880 --> 00:07:13.082
  • Jim: And if God is sendingthe animals, he could've
  • 00:07:13.115 --> 00:07:14.817
  • sent the ones that wouldhave the most genes still
  • 00:07:14.851 --> 00:07:16.819
  • intact for interbreedinglater on, but also the
  • 00:07:16.853 --> 00:07:20.356
  • smaller ones, forinstance, the dinosaur, an
  • 00:07:20.389 --> 00:07:23.025
  • elephant, orwhatever, a young one.
  • 00:07:23.059 --> 00:07:25.895
  • Bodie: A young one.
  • 00:07:25.928 --> 00:07:27.263
  • Less food, lessspace, less waste.
  • 00:07:27.296 --> 00:07:28.764
  • Those are all advantageson board the ark.
  • 00:07:28.798 --> 00:07:30.333
  • Other things you mightnotice, if you look up
  • 00:07:30.366 --> 00:07:31.734
  • under here, when they usethe restroom, go to the
  • 00:07:31.767 --> 00:07:34.537
  • bathroom, it all comesdown and accumulates in
  • 00:07:34.570 --> 00:07:37.473
  • certain areas to make iteasy for them to go along
  • 00:07:37.507 --> 00:07:39.542
  • here and cleanall this up.
  • 00:07:39.575 --> 00:07:41.744
  • Now, in some instances,they may not have
  • 00:07:41.777 --> 00:07:43.212
  • done that.
  • 00:07:43.246 --> 00:07:45.047
  • They might've just had,like, a dropped floor with
  • 00:07:45.081 --> 00:07:46.883
  • some hay under there'cause you gotta think
  • 00:07:46.916 --> 00:07:48.484
  • they're only gonna beonboard the ark for about
  • 00:07:48.518 --> 00:07:49.986
  • a year.
  • 00:07:50.019 --> 00:07:51.554
  • I grew up on a farm.
  • 00:07:51.587 --> 00:07:53.155
  • You know, we'd clean outthe chicken house about
  • 00:07:53.189 --> 00:07:54.524
  • once every two years.
  • 00:07:54.557 --> 00:07:55.858
  • So, in some cases, theymay not have had to
  • 00:07:55.892 --> 00:07:57.260
  • clean anything.
  • 00:07:57.293 --> 00:07:58.594
  • Jim: I bet that was afun job, by the way.
  • 00:07:58.628 --> 00:07:59.962
  • Bodie: Oh, my goodness,it was--that was
  • 00:07:59.996 --> 00:08:01.664
  • so horrible.
  • 00:08:01.697 --> 00:08:03.266
  • Jim: Or you could sticksome sort of a composting
  • 00:08:03.299 --> 00:08:04.667
  • worm or something in thereas well, and that--almost
  • 00:08:04.700 --> 00:08:06.269
  • take care of itself.
  • 00:08:06.302 --> 00:08:07.670
  • Bodie: Right, and--
  • 00:08:07.703 --> 00:08:09.272
  • Jim: See, that's where peopleare criticizing the Bible,
  • 00:08:09.305 --> 00:08:10.673
  • saying, "There's no waythey could've cared
  • 00:08:10.706 --> 00:08:12.275
  • for all the animals.
  • 00:08:12.308 --> 00:08:13.676
  • There's no way theycould've--all the animals
  • 00:08:13.709 --> 00:08:15.278
  • could've fit," but you'veactually gone through and
  • 00:08:15.311 --> 00:08:16.679
  • thought through allof these problems and
  • 00:08:16.712 --> 00:08:18.281
  • criticisms, and you havean answer that is logical.
  • 00:08:18.314 --> 00:08:19.682
  • This place is so cool.
  • 00:08:19.715 --> 00:08:21.284
  • You've gotta cometo see this place.
  • 00:08:21.317 --> 00:08:22.685
  • So this is the bow?
  • 00:08:22.718 --> 00:08:24.287
  • Bodie: Yeah, this is--it'sthe bow on this side.
  • 00:08:24.320 --> 00:08:26.322
  • When you look at the veryfront, you'll see it all
  • 00:08:26.355 --> 00:08:27.990
  • come together.
  • 00:08:28.024 --> 00:08:29.892
  • Now, what's interesting, theBible says the dimensions are
  • 00:08:29.926 --> 00:08:31.294
  • 300 by 50 by 30, and so,automatically people
  • 00:08:31.327 --> 00:08:33.896
  • think, "Oh, well, it'sjust a--it's a box."
  • 00:08:33.930 --> 00:08:36.032
  • Jim: One big rectangle.
  • 00:08:36.065 --> 00:08:37.700
  • Bodie: Well, that's notnecessarily the case.
  • 00:08:37.733 --> 00:08:39.402
  • You know, I mean, theoverall dimensions of a
  • 00:08:39.435 --> 00:08:40.937
  • Corvette are length,width, height as well.
  • 00:08:40.970 --> 00:08:42.538
  • That doesn'tmean it's a box.
  • 00:08:42.572 --> 00:08:44.473
  • And so what we notice was,you know, how much do you
  • 00:08:44.507 --> 00:08:46.442
  • round those off?
  • 00:08:46.475 --> 00:08:48.277
  • Well, it's a ship.
  • 00:08:48.311 --> 00:08:49.979
  • You think you'd roundit off normally.
  • 00:08:50.012 --> 00:08:51.614
  • Jim: It has no propulsion,but you do want it facing
  • 00:08:51.647 --> 00:08:53.282
  • into the waves, so there'scertain design features
  • 00:08:53.316 --> 00:08:55.184
  • that you would've builtthat would've kept it
  • 00:08:55.217 --> 00:08:56.953
  • weather-vaned.
  • 00:08:56.986 --> 00:08:58.487
  • Bodie: That's right, when yousaw the ark when you came in,
  • 00:08:58.521 --> 00:09:00.556
  • you saw a bow fin.
  • 00:09:00.590 --> 00:09:02.291
  • I mean, you see there's,like, a front portion to
  • 00:09:02.325 --> 00:09:04.427
  • just grab rightinto the water.
  • 00:09:04.460 --> 00:09:06.629
  • Underneath, weactually have a keel.
  • 00:09:06.662 --> 00:09:08.431
  • There's a number offeatures that were built
  • 00:09:08.464 --> 00:09:10.099
  • into the ark 'cause a lotof ancient ships had those
  • 00:09:10.132 --> 00:09:11.934
  • features as well.
  • 00:09:11.968 --> 00:09:13.669
  • For example, you wantNoah's Ark to ride into
  • 00:09:13.703 --> 00:09:15.504
  • the wind and the waves.
  • 00:09:15.538 --> 00:09:17.273
  • If the wind and the wavesare comin', you want it to
  • 00:09:17.306 --> 00:09:18.708
  • ride into it.
  • 00:09:18.741 --> 00:09:20.176
  • Now, it's gonna get pushedalong even though it's
  • 00:09:20.209 --> 00:09:21.644
  • facing into it.
  • 00:09:21.677 --> 00:09:23.245
  • Now, you put a box-shapedark out there, and you put
  • 00:09:23.279 --> 00:09:24.647
  • it out there, and itstarts doin' stuff like
  • 00:09:24.680 --> 00:09:26.115
  • this, it sometimesflips over.
  • 00:09:26.148 --> 00:09:28.751
  • Jim: And you cannothave a capsized boat.
  • 00:09:28.784 --> 00:09:30.720
  • Bodie: That's right, youdon't want a
  • 00:09:30.753 --> 00:09:32.188
  • capsized boat.
  • 00:09:32.221 --> 00:09:33.689
  • Jim: 'Cause you and I wereon the ark through our

  • Bodie: That's right.
  • 00:09:36.792 --> 00:09:38.361

  • because, you're right,it doesn't have a sail.
  • 00:09:45.034 --> 00:09:47.203
  • It doesn't have a rudder.

  • Jim: Especially kids?
  • 00:12:53.559 --> 00:12:55.027
  • Bodie: Well, you know,even for a lot of adults
  • 00:12:55.060 --> 00:12:56.495

  • Bodie: You know, Igrew up in church.
  • 00:13:04.069 --> 00:13:05.437
  • Went to Sunday schools,and we rarely talked about
  • 00:13:05.470 --> 00:13:06.872
  • that sort of a subject,so, you know, when they
  • 00:13:06.905 --> 00:13:08.340

  • dinosaurs in the ark."
  • 00:13:09.808 --> 00:13:11.210

  • separate man and dinosaursout by 65 million years or

  • whatnot, and, of course,you know, if you actually
  • 00:13:16.014 --> 00:13:18.083
  • start with the Bible, Godcreated everything in six
  • 00:13:18.116 --> 00:13:19.685
  • days, which is nota problem for an
  • 00:13:19.718 --> 00:13:21.420
  • all-powerful God.
  • 00:13:21.453 --> 00:13:22.888
  • We need to remember that.
  • 00:13:22.921 --> 00:13:24.690
  • He creates landanimals on day six.
  • 00:13:24.723 --> 00:13:26.191
  • He creates man on day six.
  • 00:13:26.225 --> 00:13:27.826
  • Jim: So you have,according to the
  • 00:13:27.860 --> 00:13:29.228
  • Bible--that's takenliterally as a
  • 00:13:29.261 --> 00:13:30.829

  • 00:13:30.863 --> 00:13:32.397
  • Man and dinosaurs areliving at the same time?

  • Bodie: At the same time.
  • 00:13:34.533 --> 00:13:36.201
  • And that surprises peoplebecause they've just not
  • 00:13:36.235 --> 00:13:37.603

  • 00:13:37.636 --> 00:13:39.538

  • cartoons, you know?
  • 00:13:45.110 --> 00:13:46.645
  • We see it all over theplace where these things

  • are supposed to beseparated out from us.
  • 00:13:48.280 --> 00:13:50.048

  • ♪♪♪
  • 00:14:21.346 --> 00:14:25.250
  • Bodie: We're just nowgettin' to some of the

  • bigger cages to give yousome examples of that.
  • 00:14:26.718 --> 00:14:28.587
  • Here, we havethe bear kind.

  • Various bears caninterbreed with
  • 00:14:30.489 --> 00:14:31.823
  • each other.
  • 00:14:31.857 --> 00:14:33.191
  • I know it kind of shockedthe world when they saw
  • 00:14:33.225 --> 00:14:34.726
  • grizzly bears and polarbears interbreeding, but
  • 00:14:34.760 --> 00:14:36.495
  • we expected that sort ofthing, and they can catch
  • 00:14:36.528 --> 00:14:38.563
  • the waste down belowand cart that out
  • 00:14:38.597 --> 00:14:40.532
  • if necessary.
  • 00:14:40.565 --> 00:14:42.801
  • But all the bears thatwe have today are the
  • 00:14:42.834 --> 00:14:44.569
  • descendants of the twobears on board Noah's Ark.
  • 00:14:44.603 --> 00:14:47.039
  • So it helps youunderstand the kind.
  • 00:14:47.072 --> 00:14:49.074
  • We're in a culture wherea lot of people wanna
  • 00:14:49.107 --> 00:14:50.943
  • confuse "species"with "kind."
  • 00:14:50.976 --> 00:14:53.078
  • The species is more of amodern derivation, and so
  • 00:14:53.111 --> 00:14:55.280
  • we see a mismatch withtwo different definitions.
  • 00:14:55.314 --> 00:14:57.549
  • Jim: So, yeah, someonesays there are all these
  • 00:14:57.582 --> 00:14:59.184
  • species, which reallythere aren't though you
  • 00:14:59.217 --> 00:15:01.386
  • would say that would bethe bear species or the
  • 00:15:01.420 --> 00:15:03.622
  • bear kind.
  • 00:15:03.655 --> 00:15:05.257
  • So, black bear,polar bear--
  • 00:15:05.290 --> 00:15:06.959
  • Bodie: Grizzly.
  • 00:15:06.992 --> 00:15:08.493
  • Jim: Grizzly bear, right?
  • 00:15:08.527 --> 00:15:10.128
  • Now, that'sanother question.
  • 00:15:10.162 --> 00:15:11.663
  • People ask how could apolar bear, let's say,
  • 00:15:11.697 --> 00:15:13.765
  • survive on an arkwhen it's not cold?
  • 00:15:13.799 --> 00:15:16.635
  • Bodie: Well, actually,polar bears like it when
  • 00:15:16.668 --> 00:15:18.337
  • it's warm.
  • 00:15:18.370 --> 00:15:19.905
  • We had some polar bearsup here in the
  • 00:15:19.938 --> 00:15:21.306
  • Cincinnati Zoo.
  • 00:15:21.340 --> 00:15:22.741
  • They do great inthe warm weather.
  • 00:15:22.774 --> 00:15:24.343
  • What it is, is their peltcolor actually gives them
  • 00:15:24.376 --> 00:15:25.944
  • an advantage in the polarregions where it's cold
  • 00:15:25.978 --> 00:15:27.746
  • and snowy and icy andthat sort of thing.
  • 00:15:27.779 --> 00:15:30.315
  • Jim: And that's an exampleof what Darwin saw as
  • 00:15:30.349 --> 00:15:32.117
  • natural selection, and hejust interpreted that as
  • 00:15:32.150 --> 00:15:35.053
  • changing from kind tokind, but we never see
  • 00:15:35.087 --> 00:15:38.223
  • that anywhere in--
  • 00:15:38.256 --> 00:15:41.059
  • Bodie: Right, what's interestingabout natural selection,
  • 00:15:41.093 --> 00:15:42.828
  • natural selection was actuallydeveloped by a biblical
  • 00:15:42.861 --> 00:15:45.497
  • Christian about25 years before Darwin.
  • 00:15:45.530 --> 00:15:48.000
  • We even have examples withDarwin's handwritten notes
  • 00:15:48.033 --> 00:15:50.235
  • on his papers.
  • 00:15:50.268 --> 00:15:51.970
  • So what it is, is he wastrying to explain how we
  • 00:15:52.004 --> 00:15:53.505
  • get thisvariation of kind.
  • 00:15:53.538 --> 00:15:55.240
  • As they come off the Ark,they go to different parts
  • 00:15:55.273 --> 00:15:57.075
  • of the world.
  • 00:15:57.109 --> 00:15:58.543
  • For example, some animalsgo where it's cold.
  • 00:15:58.577 --> 00:16:00.412
  • They're not designed tolive where it's cold, so
  • 00:16:00.445 --> 00:16:02.180
  • they're gonna dieoff or move away.
  • 00:16:02.214 --> 00:16:04.016
  • The ones that can stillsurvive in that cold,
  • 00:16:04.049 --> 00:16:06.084
  • they're left there, theones with the longer fur
  • 00:16:06.118 --> 00:16:08.220
  • or, in the case of polarbears, with the white fur.
  • 00:16:08.253 --> 00:16:11.456
  • It actually makesit an advantage--
  • 00:16:11.490 --> 00:16:13.492
  • Jim: They're gonna last longer.
  • 00:16:13.525 --> 00:16:14.893
  • Jim: That's right.
  • 00:16:14.926 --> 00:16:16.595
  • Now, I want you tonotice, this is not an
  • 00:16:16.628 --> 00:16:18.230
  • evolutionary change.
  • 00:16:18.263 --> 00:16:19.631
  • This is bearschanging into bears.
  • 00:16:19.664 --> 00:16:21.133
  • You just havevariation in the bears.
  • 00:16:21.166 --> 00:16:22.567
  • We see variations indogs all the time.
  • 00:16:22.601 --> 00:16:24.169
  • Jim: And that was alreadybuilt into the genes of
  • 00:16:24.202 --> 00:16:25.570
  • that animal.
  • 00:16:25.604 --> 00:16:27.172
  • Bodie: Correct.
  • 00:16:27.205 --> 00:16:28.573
  • Jim: And some willactually adapt, based on
  • 00:16:28.607 --> 00:16:30.175
  • their surroundings?
  • 00:16:30.208 --> 00:16:31.576
  • Bodie: That's right.
  • 00:16:31.610 --> 00:16:33.178
  • And these are notevolutionary changes.
  • 00:16:33.211 --> 00:16:34.579
  • When you think of anevolutionary change, think
  • 00:16:34.613 --> 00:16:36.181
  • of a single-celledorganism like an amoeba
  • 00:16:36.214 --> 00:16:37.582
  • that has to thenchange into a bear.
  • 00:16:37.616 --> 00:16:39.184
  • It's gonna have to addinformation for eyes, for
  • 00:16:39.217 --> 00:16:40.585
  • a circulatory system,for skin, for bones.
  • 00:16:40.619 --> 00:16:42.187
  • It's gotta add that.
  • 00:16:42.220 --> 00:16:43.588
  • That's not whatwe're observing.
  • 00:16:43.622 --> 00:16:45.190
  • What we're seeing is howcolor changes or heights,
  • 00:16:45.223 --> 00:16:46.691
  • smaller, shorter, wider.
  • 00:16:46.725 --> 00:16:48.527
  • Jim: Those things thatwould be explained as
  • 00:16:48.560 --> 00:16:50.195
  • variety that God builtinto the original animals,
  • 00:16:50.228 --> 00:16:53.698
  • all these varieties, andwe would even see it in
  • 00:16:53.732 --> 00:16:55.734
  • humans, right?
  • 00:16:55.767 --> 00:16:57.736
  • Bodie: That's right.
  • 00:16:57.769 --> 00:16:59.504
  • Like, we don't lookidentical, you know?
  • 00:16:59.538 --> 00:17:01.273
  • Jim: Right, size, youknow, all of that stuff,
  • 00:17:01.306 --> 00:17:03.008
  • there's variations, butwe're still one kind.
  • 00:17:03.041 --> 00:17:05.777
  • Bodie: That's right, andwe have that variation,
  • 00:17:05.811 --> 00:17:07.879
  • and there's beauty in thatvariation, and sometimes
  • 00:17:07.913 --> 00:17:09.848
  • we're in a culture wherepeople wanna take certain
  • 00:17:09.881 --> 00:17:11.850
  • variations andseparate them out.
  • 00:17:11.883 --> 00:17:13.852
  • Now, humans are agreat example of that.
  • 00:17:13.885 --> 00:17:15.220
  • We have people say, "Well,you got this race of
  • 00:17:15.253 --> 00:17:17.155
  • people, this race ofpeople," and they're doin'
  • 00:17:17.189 --> 00:17:19.124
  • it based on certainphysical characteristics.
  • 00:17:19.157 --> 00:17:21.193
  • We can all interbreed witheach other, you know,
  • 00:17:21.226 --> 00:17:23.161
  • as humans.
  • 00:17:23.195 --> 00:17:24.563
  • Yes, we have variations,but it's not
  • 00:17:24.596 --> 00:17:26.231
  • different races.
  • 00:17:26.264 --> 00:17:27.632
  • There's one race, thehuman race, and I think
  • 00:17:27.666 --> 00:17:29.234
  • that's importantin our culture.
  • 00:17:29.267 --> 00:17:30.802
  • Jim: Well, evolution isreally racism, I think,
  • 00:17:30.836 --> 00:17:32.737
  • and some people have takenthat eugenics was built on
  • 00:17:32.771 --> 00:17:35.941
  • Darwinism, and so didHitler and others use
  • 00:17:35.974 --> 00:17:39.544
  • eugenics to try tocreate the master race.
  • 00:17:39.578 --> 00:17:43.448
  • So it really doescome back to a wrong
  • 00:17:43.482 --> 00:17:46.218
  • interpretation ofthe world, right?
  • 00:17:46.251 --> 00:17:50.021
  • Bodie: Exactly.
  • 00:17:50.055 --> 00:17:52.023
  • Jim: And it's trying totake God out and so that
  • 00:17:52.057 --> 00:17:54.092
  • we have to explainit in some other way.
  • 00:17:54.126 --> 00:17:55.760
  • Well, evolutiontook that place.
  • 00:17:55.794 --> 00:17:57.529
  • Bodie: That's right, CharlesDarwin's book, "The Descent of
  • 00:17:57.562 --> 00:17:59.264
  • Man," his second book--he'sfamous for "Origin of Species."
  • 00:17:59.297 --> 00:18:01.133
  • His second book was"Descent of Man," where
  • 00:18:01.166 --> 00:18:02.734
  • he's looking athuman evolution.
  • 00:18:02.767 --> 00:18:04.603
  • He actually lists amultitude of human races,
  • 00:18:04.636 --> 00:18:06.605
  • and he went so far as tosay the Caucasian race was
  • 00:18:06.638 --> 00:18:09.174
  • basically the superiorrace, and they should
  • 00:18:09.207 --> 00:18:11.042
  • exterminate the others.
  • 00:18:11.076 --> 00:18:13.411
  • And, I mean, when you havethat type of an idea that
  • 00:18:13.445 --> 00:18:15.714
  • comes out of anevolutionary world view
  • 00:18:15.747 --> 00:18:17.649
  • where people are changingmultiple races, survival
  • 00:18:17.682 --> 00:18:19.951
  • of the fittest, I tell youwhat, that influenced far
  • 00:18:19.985 --> 00:18:22.787
