Full-Size Noah's Ark Will Begin Construction!

After 3 years of planning, the owners of the Creation Museum in Northern Kentucky have announced plans to build a full-scale Ark attraction in the state.

Can't wait to take the kids!

A Full-Size Biblical Ark Has ALREADY Been Constructed...

... in the Netherlands.

However, apparently the Bible writers decided to re-write the arks original dimensions - but no, that could never happen ... RIGHT???:

LOL

I can see them scratching their heads...SAY WHAT?!?!
D

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

I will be disappointed if

I will be disappointed if they build this thing on land.

It is meant to be a boat so it needs to be built and put in the water so people can see how it will tear itself apart from the flexing in the ocean.

If they can show it floats then the story can gain some credibility.

There Is One Which Was Built On the Water ...

... in the Netherlands (as you can see if you look carefully at the photo I posted above - however, I also qualified how apparently the original ark was round. I am not aware of anyone who has constructed a round ark).

I assume that one is full

I assume that one is full size, but from the looks of the picture it is on a barge which would support it from stress.

It can float

You obviously didn't do any research on the construction of the Ark

But it is funny because evolution has no credibility either but you believe that .. it just makes me wonder

I know a couple of people who

I know a couple of people who weren't craftsman built a ship in a short period of time that even master builders cannot replicate to this day.

Of course it can float, it is wood. The problem is with it being that long it wouldn't have enough structural support from being torn apart.

A wooden ship not even half the Arks size was torn and twisted apart by the open waters.

So let them build one and prove its possible first.

OK

They found an ancient Greek ship which had the boards pegged together from the inside out every foot or so, so it wouldn't twist apart ... who would of thought the spruce goose would of flown

I know a couple of people who weren't craftsman built a ship in a short period of time that even master builders cannot replicate to this day. ... Huh????

So let them build one and prove its possible first ... well they can't prove life came from non-life either .. but for some reason you conclude there is no God .. quite puzzling

Yes, there were great ships

Yes, there were great ships built using some interestin techniques. But as the ships get bigger and bigger you need larger and stronger pegs because sheer becomes larger and larger. Not saying it isn't possible, but most of the ship will have to be structural and not storage.

I know, a couple of people who weren't craftsman built a ship in a short period of time that even master builders cannot replicate to this day.

sorry that was confusion. According to the story a few people who werent craftsman built it.

If they say it is possible let them build on and float it. No one said it isn't, just that it is highly unlikely they did. Not with materials of the day.

Just because we haven't shown it yet doesn't mean it isn't possible. We have shown that the right processes are taking place. We have only been trying ourselves on small scales for decades at most. Which is no time at all compared to the millions of years, and the grand scale that the process is suspected to happen on. And who knows maybe this random event that sparks life only happens once in every 1000 earths. It is something we are only beginning to test and understand. But we did become something from nothing regardless.

And I have never said there is no god. I just like to have at least some evidence supporting my theories, something I can test. There is no evidence proving there is a god, and I don't think a 'god' as religious people exist. Some being with a much better understanding of the universe, that could have the technology and knowledge to create us sure.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic

This is fantastic!!

I think once people get to see what this vessel actually looked like it will put The Flood in better perspective. This is not a rinky-dink little sailing vessel. On the contrary this is a massive structure. This will also put to rest the notion that people in ancient times were incapable of building anything of any great technological importance. We tend to think the ancient peoples of the world were "backwards" or "inferior" to us because we have computers and incredible technology at our fingertips. Yet there are MASSIVE archeological finds that prove otherwise. This is a good exercise to prove the fallacy that just because people lived in ancient times they must have been less intelligent and less capable than we are today.

The other thing this will do is show the compassion of God. When people see how much EMPTY SPACE was left on The Ark for people to be saved that will open some eyes. Remember that only 8 people were saved from The Flood. Even with the animals aboard there was MASSIVE living space available for thousands more. This is a good representation of the heart of man and the intent that lies within. Many refused to humble themselves and take the only way out that God provided. Many still do today.

The most thorough genocide the world has seen

The Noah story is essentially the largest and most thorough genocide the world has seen, if you were to believe the tale. It makes the holocaust look like a blip.

Apparently He gets his own set of morals to live by. And some people think it's so good that they want to celebrate it.

Really

Abortion in America makes the holocaust look like a blip too .. Apparently MAN gets his own set of morals to live by. Just wondering if you think about what you write.

How many unborn were massacred in the flood?

Those drowned pregnant mothers would be smote too by his hand.

He killed just about everybody. What a hot mess!

Does anyone have a connection

Does anyone have a connection with this organization? Our production company is producing/re-imagining two biblical tales as graphic novel series' for Harper Collins/Zondervan. One about David called "Blood and Stone," and the other about Noah and his sons. Pardon my forwardness, but the capitalist in me senses a mutually beneficial licensing opportunity.

what a complete waste of

what a complete waste of resources

Noah's neighbors agreed with you, bastu

No doubt folks from far and wide mocked the lengthy project and costly effort that Noah and his sons labored at for an undisclosed number of years. They all likely had constructed homes nearby where he had built this very sea-worthy vessel, far from any significant body of water, and without a boat-trailer and/or means to pull it towards anywhere deep enough to launch it!

Even when all the animals mysteriously showed up, two by two, after their kind; and all the food was well-stocked enough to feed them for a lengthy period; they must have thought it folly to take them in and make them comfortable for their upcoming journey, when it appeared they were going nowhere fast.

Then, soon after; when water from above and below burst onto that scene, and God shut them in; those resources, and the time it took to assemble them, suddenly became much more valuable than they were before.

"Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
)And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
)For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
)Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
)But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men." - 2 Peter 3:3-7

Scoffer's bs bias meets archeological evidence

I'll try and make this brief to fit your condescending forte', but the evidence for the Ark's existence was found in the mid-1980's, and convinced newscasters from around the world enough to report on it, and the local government enough to build a structure near the site to accommodate those who would visit it.

Unfortunately, political tensions in the area have all but eliminated access to the site, but the two hour documentary that I embedded below tells of the scientific tools and measurements they used to show why they believe it is the very Ark of Noah.

Perfect comparison!

You should have no more fear of this evidence than that of a fake bug, because, after all, you're so sure that it's not real, it ought to be fun to see all of the obvious manipulations that fooled so many skeptics into reporting facts they didn't want to believe.

Like that scared little girl, you politely decline, because you'd rather not find out if real science says otherwise. That would be way too hard to deal with.

Fear is an interesting word,

Fear is an interesting word, notice that you are trying to manipulate an agnostic, someone who couldn't care less about your thoughts about the unknowable. So, who here is afraid?

Archeology is knowable and measurable

It is still a respected science in some circles, even if it's not in your "bs forte'". I'm not talking about unknowable beliefs, I'm referring to an archeological find that has yet to be explained away by the most ardent agnostic. I wasn't asking for any respect, except for the self-respect that any reasonable examination ought to afford.

Avoidance of what is assumed to be easily dismissible is what I call fear; when it ought to be playful sport to any thoughtful agnostic, eh?

some wood and christian

some wood and christian archeologist's does not proof make.

Precisely why it made secular news and gained local recognition

I wasn't expecting much of a reply, but you've exceeded my low expectations, bastu.

Since your attention span is shorter than your depth of thinking on this, here are the time markers for the 20/20 newscast with Hugh Downs,(starting at 54:12), and the ground-penetrating radar analysis of metal patterns, of both quantities and types that do not occur in nature, and therefore are definitely man-made,(1:09:46). A smattering of newspapers world-wide, and Turkish TV news covered the EVIDENCE that clearly something other than a natural formation was found by these archeologists.

Here's the whole 20/20 piece: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8KGkj7hcjk

A model of the Ark was constructed to scale based on the findings of the ground-penetrating radar; with length, width, and depth measurements as close as could be determined by the metal patterns. (1:24:41)

Sry TL;DR as soon as you

Sry TL;DR as soon as you started talking about the media as some kind of proof. But as you should know mainstream media speaks to the common denominator, in the US one such is called called Christianity. This is to sell advertisement and to lower the difficulty of the network selling its product.

So... I don't care what some TV-show says. It is not proof, if anything it is people taking you for a ride like every organized religion does.

Sry if I hurt your feelings in anyway I just call bs whenever I see it and Organized Religion is bs

Hostle witnesses sometimes make the best critics

The media reporting is NOT some kind of proof, rather it is their usual antagonism that makes the contrasting scientific evidence more compelling. While the Bible record has been shamefully co-opted by many organized religions, it literally stands against the traditions of men. Since when has the finding of a vessel that was used to escape the most severe judgement God ever brought to the earth, so far, ever been a popular topic among folks who might deserve much the same today?

I'm not suggesting you do anything with the evidence beyond consider it on it's own merits. If you can explain the findings another way, have at it; but if science gives us the Ark of Noah as the best explanation, that still doesn't force you or anyone to subscribe to anyone's organized religion, eh?

I consider it to be foolish

I consider it to be foolish myths shared by people who desperately cling to old and to be honest dangerous ideas. Religious folly does not interest me. One again you try to convince a man who cannot be convinced of the existence of god. The only thing this might prove is that someone built a boat, the rest is speculation and people seeing what they want to see.

I do not wish to insult anyone but this is getting really old, I respect you to believe what you will and spend your time and resources as you will. But proof of anything this is not and never will be.

I will now end this foolishness and go on to something a little bit more interesting and pressing.
