prologos: "Noah and Jesus were wood workers, If you have ever worked manually with wood, even when not using dull bronze age handtools, all day long, day in and day out, you will do little else."
I understand that bronze (an alloy of tin and copper) can be honed to be quite sharp, but generally it is considered that bronze cutting tools were inferior to iron implements.
But the point prologos makes is important. The stated size of the ark (Genesis 6:15) and its detail means a massive amount of timber had to be processed. Nothing is said in the Genesis account about the source of the timber. If Noah and his sons had to source the timber, cut it down and haul it to the construction site, then this would add a massive amount of labour to their task.
Of course, Noah could've paid others to source the timber, but that adds another dimension to the conundrum. Where did Noah get the funds for purchasing the timber (a voluntary contribution box maybe-haha). Who was Noah anyway? He just appears in the account. Was he a sort of local ruler? Did he have slaves to do his bidding? If he did, why are none of them 'saved.' (In the slave owning households of early Christianity, many slave became believers and are described as being saved).
But to return to prologos' topic of carpentary, Here's an illustration of two men using a method known as 'pit-sawing' to process timber. The guy in the pit gets covered in sawdust, and its often in his eyes too (no safety goggles), how long do you think it would have taken them to process the required timber? And no outside help, from either slaves or angels, the account specifically says Noah and his family did the work. (Gen. 6:22)
And on top of all that, they had to grow enough food for themselves and the animals for their time in the ark and afterwards (until they had planted new farms), and load it into the ark. Busy little buggers weren't they?
I think most thinking people, (except those whose metacognitive faculties are blinded by faith), will agree that Noah's flood story looks more and more like a fairy story, or what some people call, 'tooth fairy research,' which term describes a person researching something before establishing that the 'something' actually exists.
And sadly for those blinded by faith, both Jesus and Peter, were taken in by this story and are revealed as ordinary humans, having no special insights and without the ability to critically assess information.
