Oh, and the animals on the Ark must have been utterly infested with parasites, and shaking with disease - after all, they all needed to survive the flood too.

Oh, no. That cannot be right. There were only allowed to be two of each parasite, one male and one female. (We have to go with the literal wording, remember).

Hmm, without the intestinal bacteria, Noah and family must have had severe digestive problems on that trip.

If God could make the universe and all life in it , I doubt he'd have trouble dealing with a boatload of animals.

If God could make the universe, then he did not need to preserve animals on an ark. He could have just make a bunch of new ones after the flood had subsided. For that matter, he would not have needed a flood - he could have just poofed all of the sinful people out of existence.

This an example of why the flood story makes no sense except as a fable.
