Look here...if you read Genesis 6:19-22 basically Noah is supposed to bring two of all living creatures both male and female.
Then in Genesis 7:2 God says for Noah to take seven of every kind of clean animal (pair)
What does that all mean? My friend pointed this out to me and I have not a clue how to answer

Clean animals were instructed to be brought in more than the others so that Moses could sacrifice them to Yahweh. What made an animal unclean? Their diet. Yahweh made certain animals as living garbage disposals and filters for the land and waters. We are not to eat them so that we do not die of diseases. I live by this diet and without working out I am shrinking back to my original size I am now a size 8 from a size 14. Hallelujah! And I am healthy! Blessings..

For sacrifice, which was required for forgiveness before Jesus's crucifiction.

I do not believe the flood story literally happened, but it isn't really contradicting, it just sows bad writing, editing and translation skills, here is what Genesis 7:2 says:
Take with you seven of every kind of clean animal, a male and its mate, and two of every kind of unclean animal, a male and its mate
