Before I quote anyone else I just wanted to clarify if you were serious or not when saying things like, 'god maybe stopped the carnivores eating other animals for a bit' and 'maybe he told the animals to travel to him'
I'm seriously confused.
Or is this really the power of 'faith'? ... to make the totally illogical - reasonable?

Whatever the truth may be (I had this epiphany in my 20,s after nearly a decade of arguing why people believe what they do) I came to realise that with over 2 billion Christians, 2 billion Muslims and maybe 25 million Jews ( if I'm lucky!) something must be there for them to believe , and many if not most are a lot more intelligent than I, so yes it is faith, and unless you have it , you will never understand it!

Nevermind all this talk of the Ark, modern genetics has proven that homo sapiens never went through a bottleneck of less than a few thousand. I can't remember the exact number, but it wasn't even close to 2.
And therefore the Adam and Eve story has been proven to be just that. A story. But if Adam and Eve never existed, original sin doesn't exist. And that takes away one of the central reasons for Christ's appearance on Earth (as Saviour/Redeemer).
I'm interested to hear how Christians view this. Is the concept of original sin important to them, or could it be dispensed with?
