it wouldn't happen even if you melted all the water in the poles.
And to put ALL species , one of each kind in a ship, you would need a ship 100x bigger then titanic.
Good thing Noah lived hundred of years, or else he would never had time to build it.
I wonder how he went to Australia to save the koalas and kangaroos.
Just another made up story from the Bible. It's fun to tell kids, though.

Don't you think there are a LOT of incoherent things there to believe it happened exactly like in the Bible? Don't you think it's more likely to be a tale from the old days that grew to be a part of an old religion?
At that time it looked fantastic, now it looks absurd.
KellyJay has quite a high chess rating, he's certainly not unintelligent, and I don't mean to come across so dismissive. I'm no longer a Christian, though even when I was I never thought there was any contradiction between Jesus being the Savior and Noah's Ark being a fable. Though I know a lot of Christians who adhere quite strongly to a literal Biblical interpretation. And for them that would be a contradiction.
