Not saying I believe, but:

Noah's Ark, how to build one!
The recorded instructions to Noah for the plans of the ark were as follows:

At 3000 visitors a day, even if only at $2 a head, I'd say he's going to get one heck of a financial break out of it.

BTW, since the description of the Ark is in Gen. 6:14-16, one needn't find the original, or even prove it existed. Since what this man built isn't the original, then I guess it is a replica.

What do you mean? We know that the Noah'a Ark story is a myth. Just because a bunch of ignorant goatfuckers wrote a fairy tale does not make it true.

I would love to see the details of this boat. A true wooden boat the size of Noah's Ark has never been built and is certainly not seaworthy.

We don't actually 'know' anything when it gets right down to it...we're still trying to figure out the pyramids..got a line of alien visit believers tracking that on...

either way..seaworthy is a term best left to the White Star Line..

Those of us who are old enough to remember when Bill Cosby's career was just getting started DO know the dimensions of Noah's Ark - measured in "cubits".

Must I referrence you or have you figured it out for yourself?

A cubit is around 18'.
If the original houses MANY animals it has to be big. He could turn it into an apartment building/ship for people who love to travel. Kind of like a cruise ship.

During the rains, etc, we reckon Noah saved a shitload (literally!) of animals.
Who saved all the fruits and vegetables?

...and ps: Why the fk did he save wasps, mosquitoes, centipedes, my mother in law, and fkn chiggers and termites?

...oh yeah, and pps: Who checked for male/female parts to make sure the ark wasn't populated by a bunch of gay or lesbian antelope, mice, alligators, and prairie dogs?

The recorded instructions to Noah for the plans of the ark were as follows:
6:14 Make for yourself a coffer ( box, chest, ark ) of pitch trees (cypress); nests shall you make in the coffer ( ark ), and you will cover it inside and outside with a covering ( pitch, bitumen ).

6:15 And thus you shall make it; three hundred cubits (~450 ft.) the length, fifty cubits (~75 ft.) its breadth, and thirty cubits (~45 ft.) its height.

6:16 A light you will make to the coffer ( ark ), and to a cubit you shall finish it above; and the opening to the coffer ( ark ) you will place in its side; with lower, second, and third floors you will do it.

6:19 And from every living thing of all flesh, two of all to come into the coffer ( box, chest, ark ), to keep alive with you; male and female they will be,

6:20 from the flying creature after their kind, and from the cattle after their kind, from every creeping thing of the earth after its kind, two from all will come to you to keep alive.

6:21 And you take for yourself of all eatable that is eaten, and you will gather to yourself; and let it be for you and for them for eating.

7:2 From every creature clean will you take to yourself seven by seven, a man and his woman; and the creature that not clean it by two , a man and his woman;

7:3 of the flying creature of the skies seven by seven, a male and his female, to keep alive seed upon the face of all the earth.
