Oh. So it's just bullshit then.<quoted text>The ark was covered by a pyramid shaped structure according to one theory. The ark itself was just a wooden container which may have been protected and transported by the covering it had over it. Noah built an altar which this theory asserts was in the shape of the covering, and his grandchildren copied the design throughout the region when pyramids were constructed for religious purposes. The natural forces which were used to lift the ark off the Earth, to protect it,were related to the advanced science God had made available to Noah over the many years he prepared for the event.
Why would God give Noah "advanced science"? Couldn't God have just told Noah and the animals to hide in a big barn while he smited the planet with a death ray or something easier or more practical then global flooding?
