Person A "Extremely talented ship builders built the Wyoming out of wood using modern technology, and it kept twisting and turning, leaking, needed steam engines to pump out water, and couldn't stay afloat safely. You're telling me that a working wooden ship far larger was built several thousand years ago by 8 people? Wood isn't even a suitable material."

Person B "The bible states that Noah had faith in God, and God helped Noah build the ark, using the divine knowldge he was given. The knowledge surpasses modern technology, so using modern technology is insufficient to disprove Noah's ark."

How should person A respond to this undisprovable fact/theory?

That which is asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence... Next!

That is quite correct, but irrelevant. The onus is one the speaker B to prove that the ark did exist, and he can't.

Be blunt and say God did it is not a viable argument, and that geology, dendrochronology, varves, and written text histories all show that the flood is myth.

try and find "The ark before Noah" by Irving Finkel
he's an Assyriologist who found a tablet showing that the predecessor of the bible's ark was a giant coracle, which makes sense, since the marsh arabs in southern Iraq still used similar but smaller coracles at the start of the 20th century

Person A would not waste time in answering Person B.
