It seems to me the real problem with the hypothesis that the ark was built c.
5.5 mya is that it is completely out of sync with the Chalcolithic culture in
Gen 4 which preceded it and the Tower of Babel in Gen 9, which followed it not
long afterward and can be dated quite securely c. 3000 B.C. +/- 500 years.
