And if you did actual research on the subject you would realize that their is biblical evidence that suggests that it was a localized flood. Scientists have endorsed this concept. Only literalists who read one translation of the bible actually believe that the flood was global.
And then all of the animals just hopped out the boat, and went back to their regular environments? I mean, if most Christians don't believe in evolution, then how did Polar Bears or reptiles survive for 10+ months, without dieing from their regular weather environment/conditions? It doesn't even make sense, especially if they never evolved.

"with God all things are possible" and so it would seem, so is the story of the ark...

Another thing to consider why flood stories are so prevalent in so many diverse societies is the fact much of early humanity centered around areas where WATER was. River basins, coast lines etc. Water was life, unfortunately those areas are also prone to major flooding, especially the coastlines as the glaciers melted off about 10k years ago ending the last ice age.

Well, since you're the denier, why don't you tell us?

National Geographic already did a special on this.
Why didn't god just stop the flood instead of making Noah build a boat to save all of animals? He is supposedly all powerful right? He could have done it. He can't interfere? But he can interfere enough to tell Noah a flood is coming and how to build a boat...? He could have at least built the boat for Noah.
God must have caused the flood which killed everything and everyone that wasn't on the boat. Now why would he do that? That's not very nice, they must have been non-believers. That will show them!
You'd think god would have just told Noah to herd all the animals up, then walk up a hill. That solves that problem.

If that really was the ark, or even a ship, .... the whole structure would be petrified wood wouldnt it ???
why only just a plank ?
The whole structure is pertified wood! =)
and they found more than just a plank... they found petrified animal dung, and did a radar scan of the site, which revealed the object has the shape of a ship with internal compartments.
