Noah's Ark replicas and derivatives

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Numerous interpretations of Noah's Ark have been built and proposed. Some were intended to be replicas, as close as possible to the Biblical Ark, the builders assuming that such a boat did exist and that it is not a mythological vessel. Others are looser derivatives which were inspired by the idea. The Biblical description of the Ark is brief, beyond the basic measures of length, height and width,[1] and the exact design of any "replica" must largely be a matter of conjecture. Some interpret the Ark as simply a chest-like structure with rectangular sides; other reconstructions (like Ark Encounter) give it a rounded bow and stern.

  • ✪ How The Bill Nye Creation Debate Funded A Noah's Ark Replica
  • ✪ Two by two A real-life Noah's Ark


The Creation Museum in northern Kentucky announced it has enough funding in place to build a 510-foot replica of Noah's Ark as part of a creationist theme park. "The founder of the Creation Museum, who is behind the project, says a recent debate with Bill Nye 'The Science Guy' over evolution has encouraged investors to give money." (Via WKYT) Nye and Creation Museum founder Ken Ham debated the topic of evolution in early February at Ham's home turf. (via YouTube / Answers in Genesis) "As a Christian, I would ask Bill the question: What would change your mind?" Ham asked. "We would need evidence that the universe is not expanding, we would need evidence that the stars appear to be far away, but they're not," Nye said. (via MSNBC) The Courier-Journal reports the debate spurred an increase in donations for the $120 million-plus theme park, enough to make the Ark Encounter theme park a reality. According to plans on the project's website, the Noah's Ark replica will cost $24.5 million and its all-wood construction will be based off the description found in the Bible. (Via Ark Encounter) And according to details from the Bible, that means the new Ark project could be made of lower, middle and upper decks. The wood type described in the passages is cypress. (Via Nye wasn't too pleased when he heard the news, though. "Now Nye said he was disappointed the project would go forward and hopes that 'it goes out of business.'" (Via WXIX) According to its website, the "Ark Encounter" theme park has already raised $14 million and is expected to open in Williamstown, Ky., in 2016.

The Bible gives the length of the ark as 300 cubits. Various cubits were in use in antiquity,[2] but to be considered "full-scale", an Ark replica would have to be somewhere in the range from about 135 to upward of 150 meters long (ca. 440 to 500+ feet).
