I don't think whether you are a believer or not should have anything to do with appreciating the fact that stories like Noah's Ark and the Fall of Man are important, influential works of literature. If you ask me, everyone should be Bible literate.
For one thing (and speaking as a recent college graduate here), try passing a class on Western art history, or a class on Shakespeare without understanding the Bible stories that influenced them. Or try understanding Star Trek II without knowing something about Paradise Lost, Moby D*ck, and the Bible stories they were both based on.
(woot filter changes D*ck to "homeskillet" in case you were wondering)
