My apologies, Celestial rain, the question should have read 'would you say a literal six day creation and a global FLOOD makes sense to you?'
I thought my typing was better than that!
You said 'For now, all that matters to me is that He created the world and that I am in it.' That is great.
In the future, if any of your non-Christian friends tell you your faith is invalid because of questions like 'What about the ape-men? where did Cain get his wife? isn't it impossible for Noah to have put all the animals on the ark? what about carbon dating?' please know that there are answers from the Bible.
You can trust the Word of God!
Enjoy your weekend
