For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit, 19in which he went and proclaimed to the spirits in prison, 20because they formerly did not obey, when God’s patience waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were brought safely through water.[1 Peter 3:18-20]
The so-called conventional wisdom of our progressive culture scoffs at the notion of Noah’s ark.
After all, how absurd to believe that Noah rounded up millions of species of animals and loaded them on a little toy boat to survive a global flood.
Laughable, they say.
Even many Christians have begun to doubt the historical account of Noah’s ark by acquiescing to the authority of the “scientific” community.
Maybe the ark and the flood story was merely symbolic or metaphorical of a spiritual lesson. Maybe the flood was localized and only affected the small indigenous population of Noah’s ancient community.
All of these objections and attacks on the Biblical narrative, however, can easily be answered historically and scientifically. With just a little common sense and logic, the perceived obstacles to Noah’s ark are erased and the Biblical account rings true.
