Another question is that if God really made the world and all we see, including the fossils, why was it man who had to write it all down? Couldn't have God made an HP Laserjet and printed a million copies of His holy word, and made flatscreen TV's for the Hebrews that would show how he did it all?
Good point. Another is who is the author? It certainly is not God neither can it be Moses (since Exodus and Leviticus are written in the third person). I think that's a better argument since Ham is obsessed with being "observable".

I'd also make attacks on the flood story, because that much water doesn't exist on Earth, that much water can't fall as rain,
According to the bible, deep wells under the Earth but there is no evidence of all that extra water.

In fact, it was the discovery of North and South America and their unique species that convinced the Catholic hierarchy that Noah's flood wasn't literally global, because thousands of land mammals swimming across the Atlantic and back didn't make a lick of sense.
Hence Pangea existed in the time of Noah. Of course the separation of the continents in such a short period would release so much energy, that the seas would boil and rocks would literally melt and all life would have perished.
