Noah’s Ark

Holy Bible, (ESV) English Standard Version, 2001 by Crossway Bibles, ESV text edition: 2007. (Make yourself an ark of gopher wood. Make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and out with pitch.) Pitch is dark (visco-elastic) material obtained from petroleum (resin). (This is how you are to make it: the length of the ark 300 cubits, it breadth 50 cubits, and its height 30 cubits. Make a roof in the ark, and finish it to a cubit above, and set a door of the ark in its side. Make it with lower, second, and third decks) (ESV). 510 feet long, (1.5 football fields long) or three space shuttles nose to tail 50 feet tall from the ground, taller than modern day 4 story house, 3.1 million boards of timber, enough timber to go from Williams Town, Kentucky to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, laid end to end in 12x12x1 boards. Largest timber frame building in the World. Noah began building this past the age of 500, since he fathered Shem, Ham and Japheth. And the flood waters came when Noah was 600 years old, and his sons had each a wife by then. According to a 2012 (You Tube) video, titled (Noah Ark has been found, it’s not just a fairy tale), beginning with an aerial picture from 10,000 feet above the mountains of Mount Ararat, a Man by the name of Ron Wyatt, discovered the outline of the ark dimensions, seventeen miles below the Mount, with corresponding man made iron posts, found in present day Turkey and officially declared by their government a National Park.

The creation of a life size replica in present day Kentucky, by a man by the Name of Kenneth Ham (Ken Ham), Australian born Evangelist and (AiG) Answers in Genesis creationist organization President, began the Bible theme Park with a boat shaped $100 million price tag wooden structure, 510 feet long, 85 feet wide and 51 feet high, called (The Ark encounter). This massive structure that cannot be pictured without panoramic views is built following the same instructions in the Bible.

Noah, and his three sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth would build the ark, gathered the grain and supply to house several thousand species, enough food and water for them, and eight people inside the ark, for some one hundred and fifty days. According to the Bible Noah was 500 years old when God instructed him. Noah turned 600 years old, while building the ark, being mocked, ridiculed and humiliated. It is fair to say that the ark took 120, since in the context it’s the length of God’s patience and the Law before the flood of the length of a man’s life from the increasing corruption on Earth (Genesis 6), and giving plenty of time to warn the population they needed to believe in God’s Word.

There is no mention of the tools he used, except for the (Gopher wood) as material, and the pitch that in some Bibles is called (Bitumen) an asphalt of Asia Minor, used in ancient times as cement or mortar.

The ark is built nearly too maximum size known for wooden vessel, few come close to its size except 2, there are records going back 2000 years of ancient wooden ships bigger than the ark, and the records are not accurate, but for secondary sources from the 15th century Ming dynasty, and the Greek 200BC reference of Athenaeus and Plutarch (Life of Demetrio’s).

Noah’s Ark

c. 2100 BC

According to Genesis, God gave Noah instructions for building the ark. Seven days before the deluge, God told Noah to enter the ark with his household and the animals.

c. 200 BC

The Greek Tessarakonteres (meaning 40 files of oarsmen) reportedly carried a crew of 400, was powered by 4000 oarsmen and transported 2850 soldiers, according to Athenaeus and Plutarch (Life of Demetrios). She was built for Ptolemy IV Philopator. Historical evidence for this ship is limited to ancient references.[36] [37] [38] [39] It is speculated that the ship could have had two hulls. According to Plutarch, during the tests the ship was difficult and dangerous to move.

Chinese treasure ship

15th century

Historical records from the document History of the Ming dynasty claim that the largest Chinese treasure ships were more than 400 feet (120 m) long.[41] However, the size of treasure ships is still disputed[42] [43] [44] [45] and some scholars argue that they were probably closer to 200–250 feet in length,[46] while others argue that they were actually 309–408 feet in length and 160–166 feet in width. [47]

About the $100 million price tag? The argument posed is the money spent on current US presidential campaigns, which is many time over, the money spent on building cruise ships, roller coasters and (secular theme parks), rivals the money spent on the building of the ark. The ark is built as the greatest Christian outreaches of our day. Modern day technology in US is less than 250 years old; the ark was built 1,656 years after Creation, it asserts humanity using better tools before the flood. For the purpose of the public getting a sense of how a timber-frame building structure can be constructed. The Colorado Timber-frame company President, Keenan Tompkins posed with a wooden mallet in July 14, 2016 with some o the left over timber used in the fabrication of the ark, they worked 24hrs, six days a week for 11 months, they sent 180 semi-trucks filled with timber components to Williamstown, Ky., where they oversaw construction of the Ark Encounter, a sister attraction to Answers in Genesis’ Creation Museum, about an hour away. Keenan Tompkins said, “It was an amazing honor” no one has done this before. “Except for Noah”, joked lead installer Jason Schimpf. The timber weighs 4.2 million pounds and the ark is actually 6 inches shy of 550 feet, normally Colorado Timber-frame’s team numbers 45 people, to meet the deadline 1000 staff worked on the project overall, with more than 300 people working on site at one time, 1.2 million board feet of square timber, with spruce trees 200 years old from the Utah forests, responsibly harvested Douglass fir from Washington and Canada. Colorado Timber-frame, won the bid for the project, because is one of the only few companies in North America to have machines big enough to work with large materials, the entire project took 18 months to complete, Schimpf said he read about the ark in the paper two and half years earlier, and told Tompkins that they could not miss the opportunity, if it was complicated, while maintaining other regular business, about 55 other projects during the 2016 year, the company equity is gone up since the project, because some clients like to brag to their friends that their house was built by the same people who built the ark. Since the opening the Ark Encounter’s sister Museum has attracted 2.6 million visitors, a $27 million 75,000-square foot structure, and 45 minutes away in the town of Petersburg. Whose CEO is also Ken Ham?

The potential revenue from the operation of the Ark Encounter, at $40.00 per adult, with $10.00 Parking, average price total $52.00 and change not adding the cost to fly into Kentucky, average Round trip on (TripAvisor) $186.00 out of state. Ark Encounter opened July 7 for exactly for one reason: The verse, “And Noah and his sons and his wife and his son’s wives entered the ark to escape the waters of the flood” appears in Genesis 7:7. About 7,000 media guests attended along with Kentucky Lieutenant Governor Jenean Hampton came to the special preview day, naturally, it rained. In the future the Park plans to build a Tower of Babe, interesting choice since it was God who sent down many languages, making worker communication—and thus structural integrity—impossible, Bible Old Testament.

The land purchase was done for one dollar for a 100-acre parcel, $60 million funding from high-risk, unrated municipal bonds, the city of Williamsburg declared the Ark Encounter and surrounding area a tax increment financial district, or 75% of the property taxes generated will go back to pay it off, and restore urban blight, working for the ark $2.00 out of every $100.00 you earn goes back to paying off the employer’s debt, and finally the Ark is eligible for an $18 million tax rebate from the Kentucky Tourism Development Finance authority. The Attractions will create 20,000 mostly service jobs in over 10 years.
