I would add to this insightful article the advice that as we read the scriptures we should look for those elements which uplift and inspire rather than insert our limited perspective on what must have "really" happened. We might have our own version of what actually occurred for Noah and the animals, but our version is only hypothetical and lots of other versions are possible. Thus, we should read the story of Noah for how it can inspire us to trust God rather than as a reconstructionist who wants to show others what must have really happened in order to satisfy science and secular histories.
An extremely interesting and informative essay. I now have some new perspectives that I can use when discussing the gospel with critics.
