Well, technically, you could say God is a metaphor, that the Flood happened through other supernatural means, and that Noah and his family were still warned somehow.

If you can remove God from the creation of a universe, surely a tiny little world-devastating flood can't be too much ?
Not if you're looking at the Noah's Ark "myth" as being literal. Not sure what you're getting at with your last statement as it's implicit in my closing comment.
