If Jesus Christ never existed then you must conclude none of these philosophers ever existed as well:

List of ancient Greek philosophers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Their books were just made up if you are correct.

Adults actually believe the Noah's story was real? I always just thought it was kinda like the tooth fairy or Santa Clause, something you have as a story that kids eat up and it makes them pay attention, but everyone knows if they think about it for 10 seconds it actually never happened. Someone actually put together something once on what would have had to happen if it was all real and it was a pretty entertaining and funny read. The size it would have actually have needed to be, how long it would take to build, how long it would take to gather the animals, the millions of gallons of fresh water needed, issues of genetics, the animals would have to enter the boat at a rate of 45 per SECOND to load in a day, the amount of food for the roughly 3,600,000 animals on this one boat, the actual number of workers that would have been needed, etc.

Not just adults believe Noah's HISTORIC account but the smartest adults believe it.

What you think, and what is reality are two different things.

Jesus and others who spoke about the world-wide flood in Noah's day never though it was a funny read.

It might help you to read "The Flood" by Rehwinkel.
It actually occurred; the historic world-wide flood and Noah actually did take 100 years to build the massive ark and the animals did come to him and he did gather enough food for the animals. Just because you don't believe it, don't understand it, does not mean it didn't occur.

The Holocaust is also a Myth, never really happened...Ficticious propaganda...

First of all, the Ark was Not a boat but a rectangle shape three stories high. 300 cubits long 50 cubits wide [ 437 ft 6 in x 72 ft 11 in x 43 ft 9 in ] or 96,000 sq ft of space.

For all we know the animals for the most part could have been hibernating while in the Ark. Noah did not have to 'gather' because God had their instinct bring them to the Ark. I don't recall that coming to Ark all happening in one day.
After all Noah spent about 40 + years building that Ark.

Noah only had to bring on the Ark 'kinds' of animals capable of breeding according to their kinds. The 'kinds' would supply the later variety.

Noah's Ark. Great to see one of the creme de la cremes of biblical archaeology being investigated. All I'm going to say is if this can be one of the creme de la cremes in archaeology then the research to back its particular existence must be of the same accord. No doubt this will take years and years of scrupulous research investigation. And I'd think it will be the same situation like the J&J business, i.e the James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus inscription on an ossuary. In that instance, they couldn't, in a court of law, prove that the inscription was a forgery but it also couldn't be proved that it wasn't authentic. Now it would be real nice if there's a plaque noting 'Proudly Built by Noah's Boatworks' underneath all that ground to unequivocably prove the Ark's existence but when it comes to archaeology and the Bible things don't fall into place that easily.
