The incredible account of the Voyage of Noah’s Ark is an inspiring faith adventure that feature’s one man’s total dependence on his Creator for his family and in fact, for all of humankind to follow. It is a story that has truly enthralled the generations and when you begin to plumb the depths of the remarkable background facts surrounding the voyage of the ark, the story becomes even more enthralling.
Here was the earth as we know it — totally covered in water – leaving a widespread historical legacy of now-fossilized life to be found in the earth’s ground. No-one in Noah’s time had ever built a seaworthy vessel of any kind. Noah depended on God for all blueprint and design details incl. size, type of wood used, pitching processes, etc.
Some modern-day scientists have determined that, given the 300 x 50 x 30 cubits (a cubit is around 18 inches) 3-level, large volume design, that to fit in every type of animal & living insect of Noah’s day would actually have only have taken up around 1/3rd of the total inside area, leaving ample room for Noah, his family, water and food supplies. Other scientists have agreed that this actual design was deemed to be practically unsinkable.
The Titanic, designed by Thomas Andrews the head of Harland & Wolff and built by over 15,000 paid Irish shipyard workers between 1908 – 1909 was by comparison also touted as the “unsinkable ship.” Yet with a double bottom design and 16 individual watertight compartments, it’s fate was very different to that of Noah’s Ark.
