That was an interesting article on Noah

Much was lost in the translation. The flood was not global, but local so the animals had to be local too. We know today there was a flood in that area, so people should not be so quick to discount the flood story in the bible.

I do doubt that the Ark was a rectangle, it was more likely an oval. In a rectangle the stresses at the corners would be too great, the vessel would tear apart. Like a Roman arch the stress needs to be transferred to the ends, so round or oval is the only way to build a wood boat.
