I note that no actual scientist takes them seriously. I wonder why?
Because of the conspiracy, donchaknow?
don't think there's a biological scientist in the world who'd turn down the chance to discredit evolution. Let's face it, this discovery would be huge. Hugely massively, stupendously HUGE.
Your name would become immortal in scientific literature, and 500 years from now kids would learn your name just like they currently do for Darwin, Newton and Archimedes. You'd get on the cover of Time magazine, you'd be feted by religious leaders of almost every persuasion, you'd be invited on talkshows, you'd be asked to advertise toothpaste. If British, you'd get a knighthood. If American, a reality-show. If it was me, I'd still have a small but non-zero chance at my Claudia Schiffer fantasy

... Here's my problem with science and evolution: there is no 100% solid evidence of species to species evolution ...

I got about 50 minutes in and didn't see any science backing up creationism. What I did see and hear were claims being made, some completely false but none were backed up with science. One of the claims was the Ark was perfectly built to handle the sea/oceans, except that has been proven blatantly false where tests have been done to scale. The thing would sink like a rock.
In this study, the safety of Noah’s Ark in the severe environments imposed by waves and winds during the Genesis Flood was investigated. Three major safety parameters—structural safety, overturning stability, and seakeeping quality—were evaluated altogether to assess the safety of the whole system.
The concept of ‘relative safety’, which is defined as the relative superiority in safety compared to other hull forms, was introduced and 12 different hull forms with the same displacement were generated for this purpose. Evaluation of these three safety parameters was performed using analytical tools. Model tests using 1/50 scaled models of a prototype were performed for three typical hull forms in order to validate the theoretical analysis.
Total safety index, defined as the weighted average of three relative safety performances, showed that the Ark had a superior level of safety in high winds and waves compared with the other hull forms studied. The voyage limit of the Ark, estimated on the basis of modern passenger ships, criteria, revealed that it could have navigated through waves higher than 30 metres.
So, if one could hypothetically build an ark to the specifications outlined in the Bible, and actually cram two of every species on the boat, would it float or would Noah have found himself in a Titanic-like scenario? That’s what four physics graduate students at the University of Leicester wondered. As part of a special course that encourages the students to apply basic physics principles to more general questions, the team did the math and found that an ark full of animals in those dimensions could theoretically float. They recently published their research in a peer-reviewed, student-run publication, the Journal of Physics Special Topics.

The truth is out there somewhere.
The problem is nobody is really interested in finding it. Both sides are busy running around selling their own agendas to the nearest idiot without a clue. Trust is something that is earned and neither side has earned mine!
