Genesis 6:14-15
Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.

Noah's ark is 450 feet long. The largest wooden ships ever built were just over 300 feet, and they required diagonal iron strapping for support. Even so, they leaked so badly that they had to be pumped constantly. Are we to believe that Noah, with no shipbuilding knowledge, was able to construct a wooden ship longer than any that has been built since?

But not only was the ark too big to be seaworthy, it was far too small to be able to contain the earth's millions of plant and animal species.

The Creation Wiki points out that the dimensions of the arc are in the ratio of 5:3, which is pretty darn close to Phi, the golden ratio. This proves not only that God exists, but also that the Bible was inspired by God. How else could this happen? (I think this is the best proof for the existence of God and the inerrancy of the Bible.)
