Re: Not going to happen, and it won't work if they actually do try
Considering they raised millions quite easily to build the museum, Im sure they can get money for the ark.

The real question is why bother?

Someone already has a seaworthy lifesize ark built. Well, "seaworthy" is being generous. It floats. Let's just say that.

Actually, not that outrageous a dream if you think about it.

Not a great solution to that dream, but then again, I think he's just building a tourist destination for Christians.

No one ever went broke collecting money from Christians.

Re: Just a comparison
Im not trying to debate the Great pyramid here at all. Im simply saying it's so great an accomplishment that no one would believe they built it back when they did if it wasn't still there and only documented in few texts.

There's nothing particularly fantastic about the pyramids.

It's a pile or rocks.

No need for aliens. No need for magic. No need for Jesus. Anyone can pile rocks.

Yes, it's a lot of rocks. Yes, it took a lot of people. Yes, they did an excellent job and got it done relatively quickly.

It's still just dragging rocks and stacking them.

If the Great Pyramid had be build so that it stands on its tip, then THAT would be something that people could marvel at!

.Re: Just a comparison
I find the stonework of the Inca much more fascinating even though it is not as old. The Inca didn't have the technology that the Egyptians did though, and look at what they managed with simple tools.

Agreed, they were talented. But, unlike "The History Channel" I don't think it means that aliens were involved.
