Hell is just a myth, and claiming that the God of the Bible would punish anyone for all eternity is blasphemy. If you understood the Bible at all, you would know this.
I see that you do in fact understand the definition and implications of hell, and that is why you deny that place of dread.
You shrink back from the edge of the abyss, as anyone would.
I don't blame you.
You demonstrate that you are perfectly sane, because every sane person would recoil from the idea of the God of the Bible sending poor sinners there for all eternity.

Pfft. His directions were specific.

He was supposed tp build it out of "gopher" wood, whatever that is, and smear it with "koper", translated as "pitch" - another word that occurs nowhere else in the Bible.

As for dimensions, it was to be 300cubits by 50 by 30.

Even allowing the use of the Egyptian Royal Cubit (a much more generous measurement than the standard Hebrew one*), that'd give you a boat about 520 feet 8 inches long by 86 feet 9.3 inches wide by 52 feet 0.8 inches high.

That's clearly completely inadequate - unless your God magicked it somehow. I await incoherent excuses.

__________
*If anyone's interested, using the Hebrew cubits gives one parameters of 450 feet long by 75 feet wide by 45 feet high.

Top of the morning to ye, Mac.

The Kooris have flood legends too. In their version, the man and woman survivors grabbed onto a kangaroo which jumped to higher ground.

Hi, Rosa.

My own Celtic mythology has a Flood story, too - Cessáir and sixteen other women survived the Flud . With three men.

One of the men, a Fintán, survived for 5,500 years.

So says the Leabhair Gabhála Éireann, anyway. That's "The Book of Conquests", in case you don't speak Irish...

Happened a bit before the War of the Tuatha de Dannánaigh.

I had to struggle through the Táin Bó Cúailnge in Medieval Irish. It put me off learning Gaelic/Goedelic languages.

I read the English translations of the Mabinogion and wrote an essay comparing them to the 19th cent.Midwestern U.S.(IE: Scots-Irish) stories of Paul Bunyan, Pecos Pete, Et Al as a continuation of the Celtic story telling tradition and surviving thematic elements (esp. hyperbole)

Granted, I'm told that Gaelic is a b!tch to learn as a second language. All those diphthongs, tripthongs, occluded consonants - but I grew up in it, so it was easy.

And, yes, the storytelling tradition is still strong in the West. If you can find the essay, I'd be delighted to read it...

The "Mabinogion" is Brythonic Welsh, of course, and childrens' stories at that - I still can't read Welsh.

I can't, unfortunately.

But I'd certainly like to read it in a good translation. Whether online or from the bookshop, I'll keep my eyes peeled.

Isn't Welsh similar to Irish Gaelic though? They're Celts too.

There are two branches of Celtic languages, if you exclude Cornish, Manx and Breton.
There's the Goidelic branch, which includes Irish and Scots Gaelic, and the Brythonic, which is Welsh.
They're not mutually comprehensible, no. Although one can pick cognates out, as an English speaker can in, say, French...
