Year 1656 Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth
Geneses 7:11,12 wrote:In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.
Geneses 8:3,4 wrote:And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated. And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.
It’s perfectly safe to say that Noah landed in the Middle East in the year 1,657 wherein Noah and all the animals climbed down the mountain to begin carefully guided lives. Do you suppose that the penguins were dropped off earlier at some island prior to sailing over Turkey?
