    Muslims, Are You Upset By Such Questions? http://ca.answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=Aqoh8523GpTPHO4MvNa55eHpFQx.;_ylv=3?qid=20120503172419AAE8eet

    this person did not leave way of how I can contact him/her as reply after an answer [best to them] was selected!!!
    [even the person who replied does now allow email or any form of contact]
    let me deal with the reply:
    Here is what you would have to believe in order to accept the story of Noah’s Ark.

    1. You would have to believe that rainfall, all day and night for 40 days and nights, was over a hundred times heavier than ever recorded by humans.
    [reply: Rain is controlled by Allah swt, who can also CHANGE any element to water too]
    2. You would have to believe that the earth’s water tripled – the volume necessary to reach the mountain summits – and that the flood water simply disappeared after the Flood. Flood water, my friend, does not simply disappear.
    [reply: same as in 1, water can react to metal to produce Oxides]
    3. You would have to believe that the Ark – if we grant that it had 11 entrances – had a pair of animals loaded into it every second.
    [reply: the design of the Ark: is from Allah swt, under His direct supervision]
    011.037 “But construct an Ark under Our eyes and Our inspiration, and address Me no (further) on behalf of those who are in sin: for they are about to be overwhelmed (in the Flood).”

    4. You would have to believe that each animal in the Ark had a little over one square foot of living space. This is if we give no room to Noah or his family and pals.
    [reply: Quran did not supply data about the Ark, as we know today, we humans were able to build “floated cities” resided by elders who seek warmer climates month after month]
    5. You would have to believe that all animal life on earth originates from a single point on earth, from which we find increasing diversity as we move away from it; you would have to believe that most animals migrated to their habitats for no reason at all.
    [reply: migrations/ adapting to local climates are happening every day]
    The penguins went to the Antarctic, and not to the equally inhospitable Arctic, for no reason at all.
    The kangaroos and the dingos and Tasmanian devils went all the way to the terrible Aussie desert, for no reason at all.
    [reply: we do not know enough about the penguins to learn how they elected Antarctic] [read 17:85]
    And so on.

    6. You would have to ignore or contest the consensus of modern geologists – who find no trace of a global flood ever occurring in the Earth’s history.
    [reply: I have seen with my own eyes traces of sea creatures on top of mountains]
    7. You would have to dismiss the fact that an identical version of the story appears in the pagan Epic of Gilgamesh, and in a Sumerian epic, thousands of years older than the first sources of the Torah – identical except that they didn’t involve God and Noah, of course, they involved Utnapisht and a whole pantheon of gods.
    [reply: pagans were Muslims who later elected dine & wine over faith/Iman]
    There are many other problems with this story.
    [reply: me here to answer ]
    any answers of your own?

    It’s obvious; whoever wrote the story of the Noachite Flood didn’t know the maths; the geology; the biology; or anything else. It’s just a story, invented by the Mesopotamians, adapted by the Jews during the Babylonian Captivity, inherited by the Christians and finally, the Muslims.

    any other date some of you have?
    [aside from TLC show which did show the Ark on mount Ararat]

      The weaker ones get eaten and so the fittest and better of the animals survive. and then the ones that survive mate till eventually their starts to be a trend of well suited animals:D

      survival of the fittest o___-

    Hardy Weinberg Equilibrium One Or Two Species? On one of your rambles around Tasmania, you decide to do a population genetic study of Tasmanian Devils. To your surprise, you find that they have a blood-type polymorphism similar to the MN system of humans.

    You observed the following genotypes the sample:

    MM53
    MN98
    NN49

    In your opinion, does this sample of Tasmanian Devil represent one species? Why?

    • Curator says:

      Let’s see. You have 2 * (53 + 98 + 49) = 400 alleles total.
      Let p be the frequency of M, which is (53 * 2 + 98) / 400 = 0.51
      Let q be the frequency of N which is (49 * 2 + 98) / 4000 = 0.49

      Looking at your Hardy-Weinberg equations you have
      p + q = 1
      Yup. Got that!

      p^2 + 2pq + q^2 = 1 ?
      Hm. Let’s plug in the numbers.
      .2601 + .4998 + .2401 = 1 ?
      Yes it does.

      So, I think it’s one species and is in H-W equilibrium for this gene.

    How Do I Train My Cat To Behave At The Vets? I have a Maine coon kitten that is just a year old. He’s getting seriously big and although he’s a gentle sweet tempered soul he turns into a tasmanian devil when we are at the vets. He is a real nightmare because he is so strong and it takes three people to hold him just to clip his claws. He’s never been abused and has been handled from birth. The vet is brilliant with him but I would like to try and improve his behaviour at the vest so we don’t have so much stress and drama every time. I handle his feet regularly, but he just does not like to have his movement restricted and there are occasions when this is necessary

    I’d be glad of any suggestions. I’ve had cats for over thirty years but I’ve never encountered the degree of blind fury he puts out when the vet is trying to look him over and I’m not sure how to tackle it
    Just to add – I would NEVER declaw my cat, he just goes for toenail trimming. He’s an indoor cat as he is deaf and never wears his down. I have in the past always done my cats’ claws myself but he’s resistant to that so I opt to let the professionals do it rather than fall out with him myself. He’s quite the bruiser in build so he is a handful to restrain although most of the time he’s Mr Sunshine. I wondered if anyone had successfully ‘deprogrammed’ the ballistic default that some cats produce when requiring any little procedures. He gets so stressed it’s upsetting. I have tried the Feliway with limited success but will give it another try next time

    • Curator says:

      Taking him to the vet for regular checkups when nothing is “being done” would probably help. Learning to clip his claws yourself at home (following that with treats and extra love) would also take one level of stress out of the vet visit.

      My big guy freaks at the vet — but having ME hold him helps immensely. Some vets refuse to do that and insist on taking him into another room to give him shots — they have a hard time, so I found a vet that would let me hold him while he gets his vaccinations,etc….. they don’t have a problem with him. And he’s gotten so comfortable with me clipping his claws (after each paw I give him a kiss on top of his head, and he’ll put up with just about anything if he knows that will follow) — he pretty much hands me the next paw.

      If all else fails, the vet can give you a kitty tranquilizer to give him before you take him in.

      As for the “declawing” comment — please ignore that poster, anyone who’d suggest such a thing shouldn’t be giving advice about cats.

      http://www.declawing.com has a lot of information, including how to clip your cat’s claws, and why you shouldn’t declaw.
