Some will say, the number was 7, 3 couples and a loner which would be the sacrifice Noah would offer. Thats not bad yet the text actually speaks of 7 pairs. Thats right, 14 of each clean animal. Can the Ark support that many? Absolutely it could! You only needed to bring each kind, not variation. I visited the ark a few years back, well the replica, and it had plenty of space left over. God brought the animals to the ark. Not Noah.
