The Ark: Noah's Ark

Noah's Ark, as described in the Biblical book of Genesis, was the vessel built by Noah at God's command to save Noah, his family, and the world's animals, from the Deluge.

God sent a Flood to destroy the earth. Noah was instructed to build an Ark and to retreat to it with his family and male and female representatives of all animals. It rained for 40 days and nights .The flood waters rose, and those inside the Ark survived as the rest of creation was extinguished. At the height of the flood "God remembered Noah", the waters abated, and dry land reappeared. Finally Noah and the animals left the Ark, Noah offered a sacrifice, and God vowed never again to destroy the earth in this manner.

How Big Was the Ark?

The Ark was 300 cubits long (450ft), 50 cubits wide (75ft) and 30 cubits high (45ft).  (Genesis 6:15)  It contained 3 levels or interior decks.  Or, 1,518,750ft3 displacement, and 101,250ft2 deck space.  Until the 19th century, the Ark was the largest ship ever constructed and to this day is still the largest wooden ship ever constucted.

Were Dinosaurs on the Ark?

Yes.  The Bible states that two (2) of every kind of air-breathing land animal (and seven of some) went on board Noah's Ark.  So that means all the dinosaur 'kinds' (probably around fifty) went on the Ark.

And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen."
