i once saw a show on this, and though i am Christian, i do not believe in the Noah ark story, i think its more of a story with a moral to it. first off, loading the animals 2x2 on the boat would take Noah 4,000 years going at 1 second a species, secondly, it would collapse after it set sail, it would be way to big, third, it cant flood the earth raining 40 days and 40 nights, it would give the earth about 17% more water but that’s still not 100%, and if it did, there would be so much hydrogen vapor in the air, it would kill us. We would more less drown by breathing. There are more if you’d like to argue about it but...

Most Biblical scholars now concede the flood was a regional catastrophic event.
Gen 6:7 So the LORD said, "I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens, for I am sorry that I have made them."
link also goes into the flood story supposedly being a re-telling of gilgamesh
A scale model of Noah's Ark was taken to a marine laboratory and subjected to the kinds of wave action Noah must have endured. The model sustained simulated 200-foot tidal waves, and it remained exceptionally seaworthy and stable. Furthermore, a professor of hydraulics from San Diego, Dr. Henry Morris, stated that the balance between the buoyant force and the gravitational force would be such that the Ark would right itself if it were tilted anywhere from 0-90 degrees. It would be practically impossible to capsize. Noah's Ark could have withstood the storm's fury.

If the bible absolutely requires a literal global flood, then the bible is completely at odds with rationality and anything knowable, becuase there absolutely was never anything like a global flood.
