Aside from incest, most animals, at least most vertebrates, wouldn't even have survived Noah's Ark. You need a certain base population for positive growth, and one couple would have meant extinction for many of them. A bottleneck situation as in the case of cheetahs and humans 'simply' means a decrease of genetic variance.

Also, during the whole Noah's ark thing. What did they do to the wood peckers for forty (something like that right?) days?

We don't know how Noah managed to keep or control all this animals in the ark, and we never will because we are not Noah. But the Bible never told us to understand this, it just told us to belive it.

if the harry potter books would tell the reader to believe in harry potter.
do you believe in harry potter then?

shouldn't you use your own mind instead of doing what a book tells you to do?

The Bible is not a fantasy, it is a story that gives you real events of what happened, is happening, and what is to come.

The Bible, bringing to mankind "real" events such as:

Dirt Man!
Rib Woman!
Talking Snakes!
Incestuous relationships from the start of mankind!
More water above the ocean than in it!
A boat with more space inside than volume would allow!
A burning bush!
Rivers of blood!
Splitting oceans!
Bears mauling children and more!

Sounds like a circus act to me.

We don't know how Noah managed to keep or control all this animals in the ark, and we never will because we are not Noah.

Or how they all fit on the ark, or where all the water got to, or how the ark could manage too survive these conditions, or how marine life survived the change of salinity, or how such a flood left no geological evidence, or how our genetic diversity would not allow for any fewer than a population of 10,000 people to exist yet we all came from 8 people, or how we got the genetic diversity of any of the other species on the planet for that matter, or how so many cultures only a few generations removed from this even just completely forgot about not only this happening but God as well,  ...

But the Bible never told us to understand this, it just told us to belive it.

Worse yet it's asking this without providing evidence, which is despicable.

The Bible is not a fantasy,

"Fantasy is a genre of fiction that commonly uses magic and other supernatural phenomena as a primary element of plot, theme, or setting" -wiki

It doesn't appear to be distinguishable from fantasy.
