Hello, and welcome to EvC

You have also failed to cite other examples such as Zheng He treasure ships which, according to some reports, were as long as the Ark.

Even if we accept the largest estimates for the length of Zheng He's treasure ships, they were river boats. The Ark needed to withstand incredible storms with no land in sight, and nowhere to make repairs.

Re: anchor stones away ...
Yeah, but, er, no.

The words used is 'ets. It means wood, it is never used to mean reeds, and there are other words that mean reeds in hebrew. If they meant reeds they'd have written reeds, not wood.

See here for more, and I direct you to point 5, particularly.

Still not reeds
The first line does not say gopher wood (Stalks) it says gopher wood (wood). What "gopher" means no-one knows, but the wood bit means wood, it does not mean "reeds" - as noted by the Creationist source I linked in the last post.

I have no idea what second line you are referring to? The next line says "And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits." Again, no mention of
reeds. What Bible verse are you referencing?

Is it just me, or is nothing more striking about "literalists" than how far from literal their reading of the Bible is?
