That's not the worst of it.
It rained so much as to cover the mountain (and don't forget that the
fountains of the earth opened up to help out). That would be
Everest, which according to my almanac (I found the damn thing
again) is 29,028 feet above sea level.
It did this in only 40 days and 40 nights = 960 hours. The water
level rose at an average of 363 inches per hour. Even if only 10% of
that is rain (the rest being from the fountains of the earth), that's
a yard of rain an hour. A heavy Midwestern rainstorm delivers maybe
four inches an hour.
With a yard of rain an hour, Noah didn't need an ark.
He needed a submarine.
