"Although researchers are unsure if all the creatures could have squeezed into the huge boat, they are confident it would have handled the weight of 70,000 creatures without sinking."

Maybe the Ark could have handled the weight, but if it couldn't handle the bulk, if Noah couldn't physically get all those animals on the boat, it doesn't matter how much weight it could carry. Not to mention, how much room would food and water take up to feed and hydrate 70,000 animals and Noah's family for about a year?
