Modern-Day Noah Opens Doors Of Ark Creation
Sky News ^ | 7/29/12 | Robert Nisbet

Posted on 07/31/2012 5:18:54 PM PDT by Kartographer

A faithful reproduction of Noah's ark, using the dimensions in The Bible, has just opened to the public in The Netherlands.

It was constructed by the Dutch creationist and millionaire building contractor Johan Huibers, after he dreamt that Holland would be flooded once again.

He used the ancient measurement of the cubit - the length of a man's arm from the elbow to the fingertips - to build the craft according to Biblical proportions.

In Genesis the ark is described as being 300 cubits long, 50 cubits wide, and 30 cubits high so the mammoth effort took him and his team of five just over four years to finish.

As in the days of Noah . . .

36 years ago, we named our baby boy Noah.

As of May 2012, the name Noah is number 5 on the list of most popular baby boy names in the U.S.A.

Pretty cool. I recall reading about stability tests they did on models of the ark years ago (unrelated to this).

http://www.worldwideflood.com/general/ark_history.htm

1993: Safety Investigation of Noah’s Ark in a Seaway; S.W.Hong et al , CEN TJ 8(1)1994 (AiG)

The premier paper on the structure and seakeeping of Noah’ Ark. Test data was generated by naval architects and structural engineers at the world class ship design and research center KRISO (formerly KORDI) in Korea. The comparative study focused on the Biblical proportions and demonstrated the superior choice of length, breadth and depth. Through scale model tests, computer analysis and calculations using shipping rules the capability of the Biblical ark was claimed to be structurally adequate for 30m waves. (Significant wave height). Available here.

1996: Noah’s Ark: A Feasibility Study: John Woodmorappe, ICR, 1996

The premier reference on the operation of Noah’s Ark - especially animal related issues. Written as a refutation of arguments against the feasibility of Noah’s voyage, and as a compilation of solutions for the logistics of the account. Woodmorappe deliberately makes minimal use of the “miraculous” to show the even from a materialist perspective the account is possible. See here Extensive research bibliography is very handy.

Quite inspirational.

It would wonderful for him to fill the Ark with two of each animal.

The insects alone wouldn't fit in there.

Just fill it with politicians and set it adrift.

Thanks for the ping. How amazing that someone built it to Biblical spec! That’s what I’d call a labor of love.

Lots of young people in my church, and they're giving their kids old-school Biblical names like Ezra, Isaiah, Naomi, Ezekiel, etc. I think it's pretty cool.

I'm seeing this in our church as well -- lots of baby Rachels, Hannahs, Calebs, Josiahs -- my 2 grandsons are Noah and Jonah

"....giving their kids old-school Biblical names....."

I think folks have had it up to here with trendy names, especially girl ones like Amber, Tiffany, Brittney and other assorted stripper names, LOL.
