Putting Noah's Ark in perspective

Recently there has been news about a round Noah's ark.

Yes, you read that correctly -- round.

Seems a clay tablet, thought to be about 4000 years old, describes such an object.

However, the Biblical Noah's Ark was NOT round

and its precise measurements and dimensions are given in the Bible.

The round ark that is currently being touted, by those who don't want to accept the Biblical account, is interesting but is another legend that is a spin off from the true Biblical Ark.

So, while we are thinking about Arks…..

Have you thought about the dimensions of Noah's Ark as described in the Bible?

They provide a great picture of its size but sometimes size doesn't 'compute' in our minds unless we have something with which to to compare it.

A friend of DIT sent us this interesting link that puts the size of Noah's ark into a perspective that is easy to understand because it provides several helpful  comparisons.

You will really appreciate this article.
