Emotional state is subjective and unprovable by nature. Rationality doesn't mean much as that's concerned.

He says building the actual Ark was impossible, however we have no idea how the Egyptians really built those amazing pyramids. The fact is it could have been done.

In fact most of this article is crap. I don't really believe in the Ark story myself but seriously.

Though, could someone please enlighten me how the giant ant eater and nine banded armadillo are related?

The other day I went through the genealogies of Gensis 5, curious how long it was from Adam to the flood. Just over 1,500 years. That indicates a world-wide flood in 2,500 BC if you subscribe to the literal interpretation of Genesis that makes the earth 6000 years old. Problem is, a lot of civilizations thrived in that time period and left quite a bit of evidence that they weren't wiped out by a catastrophic world-ending flood.
With, uh, no more baiting undertones than absolutely necessary...if you don't believe the Jews were capable of keeping an accurate family tree, why the hell would you subscribe to their foretelling a Messiah so over-the-top, when he showed up, they didn't believe it themselves?

They did prophesy the coming-o'-Jesus, right?

The Genesis 5 genealogy, as well as the rest of the first 11 chapters of Genesis, is written very different from the rest of the Bible (along with Job, which is similar to the first part of Genesis). Dismissing a small portion of the text because it doesn't appear to match the rest isn't the same as saying the whole book is invalid.

But what if the whole book is full of inaccuracies passed off as the infallible word of god?

That's exactly the thing I don't understand. The Bible is supposed to be the word of the almighty God, yet people who follow it say that it's okay to not follow parts of it? How can it be okay to not follow the word of God?
