The movie Star Wars is more believable than the Noah's Arch story.

So he controlled the climate to allow penguin to survive right beside crocodiles.
Who said he had to travel to every region on earth in his day? He was building the ark for 100 years. Either the animals came to him or were brought to him.
Who said he put the penguins right beside crocodiles?

Did Noah have an arch? I too like Star Wars. It is possible there are beings amongst the stars like those in the SW movies. We just don't know. So I would say it was just meant for entertainment purposes wherease the historic story of the world-wide flood was instructional.

One can look closely at humans architexture and readily see pre-flood and post-flood mentality. After the flood humans began to " Build upwards", as if they were thinking about water levels happening again. So they wanted to " Reach the gods", and give them their space. The construction of " Ziggurats", " Towers" and " Pyramids" were all post-flood influenced. And all influenced by humans view of their God. The word " Ziggurat" means " Hill of Heaven", thats what the Tower of Babel was intended to be, and it popped up right after the flood.

Man, after the flood, did build high towers to heaven. The archaeology is there. The " Stele of Ur-Nammu" is ample proof of that. Men began building " Upwards."

An immense ark containing the purported contents??? . . . undoubtedly an extreme exaggeration and ignorant embellishment. This is what happens with myths . . . they are told and retold and acquired by different cultures and used for different purposes to shape the thinking of their culture and generations. It is that shaping of thought that I believe is the result of an embedded "Spiritual" DNA involving the fold-up of the brain and its function. I find compelling circumstantial evidence in what I call the "Spiritual Fossil Record" within the very myths and legends of our species.
I think you should read this if you really believe one is irrational and unreasoning:

Penguins and crocs were supposed to be on the same boat, right? I'm not saying they had to be right beside each other but they were all in the same boat which is impossable to have all these animals and insects all in the same environment without climate control, without the right diets, without separating most animals from each other, and without any modern technology. It's logistically not possible to house and feed and breed every single animal on the planet inside of an ancient ship.

The created cannot be smarter than the Creator.

God does all things for good.

He gave the law of Moses to teach the Israelites they were incapable of keeping it so it would be their escort to Christ. That is what the apostle Paul wrote.

God planted the tree of the knowledge of good AND EVIL in the very midst of the garden. He made a prohibition to the eating of it knowing full well they would. He provided the serpent to snooker the woman and provided the woman to temp Adam. We have been learning from the knowledge of good and evil ever since. God didn't twist their arm to eat of the fruit. But He made sure they would. This is so good would come out of it. Just because you don't understand it you should at least wait for more understanding rather than castigate God.

I'm sure they had the right diets. I'm sure they had the right climate for each critter. And I'm sure the creatures on the ship were just glad to get on board and didn't really care about incompatibilities? In the wilderness, mountain lions, bears and other animals will find a cave to cohabitate it just fine when there is a forest fire.

Who said they had to house every single animal on the planet inside a ship?

Smart is not the issue . . . he wrote in 1696. Our knowledge has expanded exponentially since then . . . so I am confident I am far more knowledgeable than he was.
