Re: That boat won't float ... really ?
Hi Dr,

But it ceases to be "plain stupid" if AiG are building an Ark anyway. If they weren't, it would be an unreasonable demand. As they are, is it really so unreasonable that they should go to sea in it? That's usually exactly what people do with replicas of historic ships.

Where did you get the idea that the ark was a ship?

The ark would have been a flat bottom rectangle with a maximum size of 600' long 100' wide and 60' high with 3 floors below the main deck. If they were 16' each that would be 48' to the main deck where the door was. With 12' of space above the main deck.

Now depending on the size of the rooms built on each floor they would determine the strength of the structure.

Would this structure float? I have no idea. But I don't think it had to ever float.

God Bless,

Hi Dr,

It was floating, OK?

That really depends on where you think it was floating.

Dr Adequate writes:

And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth.
And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters.

I didn't think you believed in miracles.

The first verse Genesis 7:17 you quoted said the ark was lifted up above the earth which would have been in the atmosphere.

According to Genesis 1:2 the water was a part of the earth.

The prefix translated upon in 7:18 could have been translated over or above instead of upon which would have agreed with the previous verse, as required when taken in context. The translators just did not believe God could do what He says He can do.

But regardless of where it was, on the water, in the water, or above the water, it was held together by the same force that holds the universe together. Something I refer to as Pure Energy.

But as far as my statement that it did not have to float, I was refering to the fact that the door was 48' above the ground level. If the ark was sitting on the highest piece of dry ground on the face of the earth the water could have covered that spot by 30' of water and still had 18' to the door on the main deck. So why did it have to float? It did not even have to move. Just my crazy thinking.

I really like the miracle view the best.

God Bless,
