    Yep. They do. They are great for believing in the ludicrous and impossible. Nothing is too much of either for them.

    Most of us do. It could have been longer, depending on the actual size of Noah's cubit.

    A tomb, not a boat.

    Do atheists really believe that nothing is happening and then randomly for no reason stuff just explodes and planets and stars pop out?

    A frighteningly large number of them do.

    Despite the huge list of flaws that the story has, from obvious ones, like feeding all these animals for a year, to technical issues, like the ventilation system, or that a wooden boat that large would break apart on a normal ocean swell.

      I really don't care if you are frightened.

    No mention of Noah building a boat in the Bible. He builds an "ark'. Most Christian and Jewish scholars don't consider this a literally true story. The first 11 chapters of Genesis are oral folk tales about the origins of the Hebrew people, that had been passed down for generations.

    I think the real question you need to ask, is why it's considered such an important set of stories in Bible. What are the authors trying to relate to us?

    How did this dude round up all the animals in Australia and elsewhere. Afraid that Noah’s story is fake news.

    One would hope not.

    But the religious are prone to pretense.

    Unfortunately, yes, people are that gullible.
