Just one more thought, to be more precise: if a literary approach gets to the theological truth of the Flood story, what MORE can be added by insisting on its historical, literal, and geological veracity?

Already answered in my last post. The theological truth is, by design, inseparably embedded in the historical narrative. The narrative is in plain Hebrew prose. If the narrative is untrue, the theological claims are untrue. All the arguments in the world can't circumnavigate that fact.
