If the Bible contradicts itself, infidels think they’re free from religion! One writes: “The flood story is really two interwoven stories that contradict each other on how many of each kind of animal are to be brought into the Ark–is it one pair each or seven pairs each of the “clean” ones?” (Jim Meritt, “A List of Biblical Contradictions, 1992, http://infidels.org/library/modern/jim_meritt/bible-contradictions.html). Since God drew a line between “clean” and “unclean” animals, and determined a different total for each, where is the “contradiction?” The Bible clearly says the animals were brought into the ark by twos, “male and female” (Genesis 6:19 NKJV), specifying Noah should, “take with you seven each of every clean animal, a male and his female; two each of animals that are unclean, a male and his female” (Genesis 7:2 NKJV). That’s 7 pairs of clean and 1 pair of unclean animals. Maybe infidels simply can’t count!
