In the world of Genesis, which, in its opening chapters, seems fairly remote from ours—a world of slick-talking snakes, cherubs with flaming swords, and guys who live to be eight hundred years old—the ark gives us something pragmatic, something with worldly dimensions. In other words, some literary realism.
