The World's First Floating Zoo

We'd only lived a couple of million years, and god had already decided we were irreversibly wicked by then?

God said.. "I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence.. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out.
~Genesis 6:13-14

God was angry enough to send the world aflood; what about the state we are in now? Aren't we about a billion times more evil than we were pre-flood days? I say we deserve more than just a couple of tsunamis a year. Our sinful species ought to be completely and wholly eradicated, just like the good ol' days.

1) OK we all know the ark was 450ft x 75ft x 45ft. But seriously, was that big enough for all of earth's animals? Some are tiny but most are huge and need lots of running around space. I mean, have you ever been to a zoo?

And how did he build such a huge ark in such a short time? He only had 7 days for chrissake. And the man himself was 600-years-old!

2) How did Noah go about collecting all the animals and making sure they'd obediently go into the ark? If any of you watch Animal Planet, you'd know animals ain't that easy to handle, ma'am.

3) How were they fed & cared for? Or rather, how was the ark being cleaned of animal dung throughout the boat trip?

If the bible serves to sometimes act as a record of history, what is The Flood supposed to reflect, historically?

I can only guess this may have something to do with the ending of the ice age, where some animals may have travelled (on their own, no doubt) to safety just before their entire home turned into the Arctic Ocean. Have you watched Ice Age?
