An how about the dinosaurs too? http://creationmuseum.org/ Apparently, two of each of them were there also. I saw it on the internet so it must be true.

well, not just the weight of the living, what of all the feed.. and CLEAN drinking water? sure it rained for over a month, so you have the clean water, but it needed contained for when the rain stops and it is hot enough to dry up all that there water for land to peek out.. so yea, loads of water.. plus.. food for human consumption too, not to mention the strength of the floors after all that feces juice and urine soak the straw and reach the floor before the pitiful few numbers of humans can clean ALL that mess..

i mean.. woah, it would be a full time job to clean it all up with dozens on hand.. yet he did not have dozens of strong men.. eh?

*grins*.. good think I always took it as a myth..

Cheers for saving me some leg work.

I was leaning towards the waste of money point of view, but this looks jaw dropping. To some it may be a waste of time and money, but visitors to the smaller trial version generated a profit of $1.2 million. Not bad for a (smaller) wooden boat.

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to show me where the hell Helen of Annoy has been for the past couple of months.

In the bible it said the ark was made of Gopher Wood. But to my knowlege nobody knows what tree it came from.
unless it's extinct or just another name for a tree.

He should try to sail it across the Atlantic. Maybe he could invite Ken Ham along for the ride.  

I bet he wouldn't even get out of the Channel.
