LONDON It was a vast boat that saved two of each animal and a handful of humans from a catastrophic flood.
But forget all those images of a long vessel with a pointy bow the original Noahs Ark, new research suggests, was round.
A recently deciphered 4,000-year-old tablet from ancient Mesopotamia modern-day Iraq reveals striking new details about the roots of the Old Testament tale of Noah. It tells a similar story, complete with detailed instructions for building a giant round vessel known as a coracle as well as the key instruction that animals should enter two by two.

Rub-a-dub-dub, animals in a tub.
Makes sense given the mission and math.
I like big round ones. Uh, belay that.
15 This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high.[d] 16 Make a roof for it, leaving below the roof an opening one cubit[e] high all around.[f] Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle and upper decks.
Don’t sound round.
I’m pretty sure the bible describes the ark’s dimensions. And it wasn’t round.
What’s a cubit?
Now once upon a time in a nursery rhyme
Three little men got lost
Like you and me they couldn’t agree
And upon the wave they tossed
Well, I’ll sing their tune ‘cause I got marooned
With the love I can’t forget
Now the three little men just took me in
On an ocean of regret
With a rub-a-dub-dub, three men in the tub
Lost on the ocean blue
I roll like a hub, sing, rub-a-dub-dub
‘Cause you broke my heart in two

Makes sense. It was just a cork. It wasn’t headed anywhere.
watch out....those aliens are coming back to get you /s
It was an alien spaceship carrying DNA samples from every animal species...
Depends on long or short cubit. Short cubit was about 44.5 cm and long cubit was about 51.8 cm
A little bit more than a henbit but not quite a tribble.
How long can you tread water?
We’re giving away our ages. :^)
Too bad the unicorns didn’t get their free cruise...
