What about the insect eating animals? Or did you not think about that when you formulated your little theory?

UGH! Creepy! The idea of living inside that Ark for a year just sounds more and more like a truly sadistic joke on Noah's family. Seriously, living conditions more horrific than this would be hard to imagine.

The animals really are commendable in their self control in not eating one another.

So you think that all insects can fly?

Splendid, then explain the thousands of species of mammals and reptiles. I can wait.

Didn't the flood go on for, like, 40 days? You'd think all the mayflies and fruit flies and their 24-hour lifespans wouldn't've lasted through that.

I don't think you realize how many kinds of insects there are O.o

"[the 750,000 or so species of] insects....well they wouldnt take up much space in the ark would they?"
Good, good. Now expand that logic to explain how such a small vessel could hold at least two of every other species that exists today?
It's been calculated that to hold two of every species today (inluding storage, crew quarters etc) would require said 'Ark' to be far bigger than the Jahre Viking, the biggest ship on the planet. Sure, recreations of 'Arks' have been constructed, using the specifications stated in the Bible. They all sank.

Note this is one of those morons who abbreviates etcetera to ect not etc.

...And the one female mosquito landed on Noah's pecker.

750,000 species. 2 of each (for those that use single-partner reproduction). Methinks you seriously underestimate how much space 1.5 million insects of varying shapes and sizes would take up.

If we gave each insect just one cubic foot of space, you would need a cube 91 feet on each side to accommodate all 750,000. And if Noah was the one moral and just person we're told he was, why did God put his life in danger by saving all those vector-borne diseases with him? He could have given Noah mosquitoes that didn't have malaria, ticks that didn't have Lyme, etc.
