Testing Noah's Ark with Today's Technology

40 Days and 40 Nights
Genesis 6 - 9 tells us there was a global flood that covered the entire
earth (even the highest mountains were covered approx 20 feet above.)
In chapter 6 we read the boat measurements that God provided Noah.  
This ark was huge especially when estimated at 1.5 football fields...yet
economical.  Could God provide boat instructions that could be stable,
be able to hold 2 of every animal, economical, and really be able to
float?  

Yes!  

In fact a Korean science team decided to test the Ark's dimensions in
the early 1990's to see how this ark would hold up to a disastrous
flood.    
















Using mathematical formulas (lots more examples in the original report) and
experiments allowed this team to put this "God designed" ark to the test.  Would
testing something designed and built 4000 years ago using today's technology
reveal an amazing ark? Or a sinking ship??

Conclusion
Here is their final evaluation:

"In conclusion, the Ark as a drifting ship, is thus believed to have had a
reasonable-beam-draft ratio for the safety of the hull, crew and cargo in the high
winds and waves imposed on it by the Genesis Flood."

and

"The voyage limit of the Ark, estimated from modern passenger ships’ criteria
reveals that it could have navigated sea conditions with waves higher than 30
metres."

Their first conclusion means that even though the ark was
economical it could still survive the treacherous conditions of a
global flood.  The second part means it could even handle waves
that were 98 feet high!

NOTE: Other cultures have had global flood stories (another
indicator of a worldwide flood!)  Ever hear of Gilgamesh?  This
ark was a cube shaped...and would NEVER float.  


A classmate of mine is building a smaller version (still pretty big)
of Noah's Ark.  He has spent over 200 hours and it is looking
great!

















Can you find Noah below?















It's going to be one special project and I hope it encourages you
to dig into your Bible and create your own Bible project!

Is it possible to place a cork in a glass of water and get it to
float in the center?

Supplies:  Cork, glass, water, pitcher, and an eyedropper.

Instructions:  Fill a glass with water and challenge your friends/family to place the
cork in the glass without causing the cork to float to the side.  They won't be able to
do it...unless they know the secret!  

Next you place the cork in the glass (add a little water) and it floats directly in the
middle!

Explanation:  When you place the cork in the glass you slowly must fill the glass up
completely with water.  Use the eyedropper to get it all the way to the top. When the
water reaches the top carefully drip a few more drops until the cork goes directly
into the center.

Water's cohesion allows you to add enough water that eventually causes the water
to literally "bulge" out causing the cork to float to the center.  God gave water many
awesome properties which make life possible.  Water cohesion will also allow you
to drip many drops of water on a single penny by carefully using an eyedropper...
you'll be amazed how many drops a penny can hold.
