Im Christian. I believe his age and the Ark
Im Christian. I dont believe the Ark. I believe his age
Im Christian. I dont believe his age but I believe the Ark.
Im Christian. I dont believe EITHER his age nor the Ark.
Not Christian but I believe both the age and the Ark
Not Christian and its total and utter rubbish!

I'm not trying to be a smart ass about this, honestly, but does it bother you, if you believe in the story completely, I'm not sure, that you essentially just agreed that you believe in something that's as provable as an invisible pink unicorn? I've always been curious about that.
I just want to know how koalas got from Australia to Noah's ark.
But if you look at all the different mythos in Europe/West Asia, you find they all mention a flood, from the Greeks to the Hindis and the Mesopotamians, so there may have been a nig flood in the area at one time.
"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
It's a fairy tail.
One thing that troubles me about the story of the Ark is that NO plant species were taken on board. If the world were flooded, all land-based plants would be dead in no time. What good is a huge herd of animals when they have nothing to eat?
The Ark is a parable, like any other. It didn't really happen. People who strain to look for proof that it did are deluding themselves and should learn what the word "allegory" means.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
