  • Building an ark?

    Regardless of whether or not you believe in the Biblical flood, this project looks awesome (http://arkencounter.com/).

    In short, it's a project to build a full size recreation of the ark according to the dimensions given in Genesis 6.

    The engineering behind it is quite interesting. I do wonder why they don't plan on putting it in a lake or something though.

      Meant to be a museum-ish attraction; a giant museum on a lake shaped as a boat would be quite interesting though :P

        It'd be like the USS Midway or the USS Missouri. Really cool places to check out being a nautical enthusiast.

          A long time ago, around the mid 1970s, a man from my church returned from a trip to Turkey or some such place after having been on an expedition to find the ark. I still remember holding a piece of gopher wood that they found which they claimed was from the ark.

          I have long since left the fold of evangelical Christianity and its literalism. But I will go see the movie because, hey, Emma Watson . . .

              Hmm, I was hoping this ark would be floating out on the sea somewhere. Guess my expectations was too high. :(
