So you're talking about some kind of accelerated Evolution?

So you're talking about some kind of accelerated Evolution and organized migration of the millions of species to areas that suit their bodies and diets?

Did Mt. Everest exist at the time of the flood?

Did the miles of ice cap on Antarctica form in just a few thousand years?

How did the Fresh water and Salt water fish (the ones that can't survive in salt or fresh water respectively) cope with the adjustment in salinity? How about frogs and other amphibians?

Are we all descendents of of Noah's grandchildren?

Plants are another area where many questions arise.

The Story of the Flood along with Jonah and the Whale create more questions than they answer. It is a double edged sword. By insisting these stories are fact, as written, Christians lose an opportunity to spread Christ's Teachings, which is the important thing, right?

On the other hand, if the faithful explain that some of the Bible is fictional, THE WORD OF GOD is questioned and those doing the questioning are ostracized and they probably start asking lots of other questions that lead to more of the Bible seeming fictional.

Providing theories on how fantastic/outrageous events might have played out will only lead to more judgement and questions.
