While i’m technically closest to agnostic now, your assessment fits with my way of thinking as well. I was raised Methodist and we were ever taught any conflict between science and religion. Evolution is perfectly compatible, the biblical stories represent ‘best of class’ science of the times – not bad for Bronze age thinkers – and were workable answers as they stood for a long time.
Ark-as-DNA samples – the sci-fi ark – is a solution I had for the Ark when i was growing up and even now I feel it’s a reasonable solution to a possible actual ark situation. Might have to bring in ancient aliens a little (the “we-derive-from-god-the-multidimensional-alien” idea), but not incompatible.
