Is this just a story or actually meant to be a historical event?

Or was it written as a true story and now we know that it isn't possible to fit 10,000,000 animals on a wooden boat it has changed to a story?

@tommot2002,
Well, it's all part of this giant fairy tale, and by now you should have outgrown
believing in these kind of stories.

Probably, a little of both.

Tommot, I think you'll find both extremes here: the ones who truly believe
what's written in the bible, word for word, and then the others (like me) who
think it's all a nice fairy tale, but certainly not true.

The parting of the Red Sea isn't a fairy tale, so why should Norah's story be any different. Time to do more reading and less guessing about the origins of the contents of the Torah and New Testament.

@CalamityJane,
So are you a Christian believing the bible is not true but stands as a good way to live your life?

@Miller,
To miller,
Because there is like 10,000,000 animals that would have had to be on the boat.
Wouldn't animals have had to eat each other as they were part of the food chain?

To me it seems like it would have been believable story back in the day but not now that we know a minimum number of species.

@tommot2002,
If God can create a whole universe I doubt he'd have a single problem getting the animals he wanted on the ark. God shut the mouths of the lions when Daniel was thrown in the lion's den. I think God could handle keeping those animals alive on the ark, don't you?

Hey, we're talking about the arc, here. Let's not go off on a tangent.

@Miller,
Since the people living during that period thought the world was flat, it's not totally unthinkable that there was a world flood.

That's only one of many errors and omissions of the stories in the bible. There's not much scientific evidence for these geological conclusions based on the bible.

What people wish to believe must be based totally on faith. Trying to find any consistency or outside record of the events of the bible cannot be found. It takes much imagination to rationalize all the errors, omissions, and contradiction in the bible.

With millions of members of the christian faith, it's a common human "weakness." I'm not sure whether they believe "god is love," or they fear the rath of god. That they are able to reconcile that contradiction in their minds is a mystery for an unbeliever like me.

@cicerone imposter,
Best answer, blind faith shouldn't be encouraged in anything including religion!
