Fallback position of "goddidit" maintained when there is absolutely NO proof to back up what you claim.Arkham, you multi-point post was large. So I'll be breaking it up in manageable sections in reply.
All Noah was required to do is to take "KINDS" of animals, not every variety under every KIND.
As I mentioned before, juveniles are sufficient to maintain and replenish the stock when they mature. Being smaller and docile, they can be packed-in, require less provisions, and generate less waste. Then there is the supernatural element to consider that since this is all under God's supervision, He could have, without Noah mentioning those fine details, placed the animals into whatever required sleep or hibernation in order to stretch those supplies.
Also don't overlook the fact that as it rained for those 40 days. Noah had a ready supply of free fresh water to keep his water supplies topped-off and the insides of the ark cleaned of waste. So water conservation and usage didn't become a point of concern until the rain stopped as the Ark continued to float.
Wrong assumption, again.
God gave Noah the dimensions of the ark and the materials to use. Also He guided Noah in design and stress management - it was Noah's first ship; the first ship in the history of Man!
Plus, God is in control - this is His supernatural act, right? I'm sure whatever means of the rain, it would not be so severe to compromise the structural integrity of the ark or needlessly upset those inside. So that's another non-issue.
It didn't matter how high the water level reached. The ark was designed to do one thing - float. And Noah and his sons had 120 years to build it right.
Also, any scientific evidence that points out impossibilities in the Flood is, as Gareth has repeatedly stated, "Quack Science."
