Modern Day Working Replica of Noah’s Ark

The ark is 150 cubits long, 30 cubits high, and 20 cubits wide. That’s 2/3 the length of a football field and as high as a 3 story house.

Life-size models of giraffes, elephants, lions, crocodiles, zebras, bison and other animals greet visitors as they arrive in the main hold. A contractor by trade, Dutch Creationist Johan Huibers built the ark of cedar and pine. He did the work mostly by his own hands, using modern tools and with occasional help from his son Roy. Construction began in May 2005.

Huibers hopes the project will renew Christianity in the Netherlands, where church going has fallen dramatically over the past 50 years.

    I think this wonderful. Does people realize how faithful Noah was. He built an ark like this , never having seen rain, away from any body of water. He was probably mocked by everybody, but he beleived what God told him. We should measure ourselves next to him.
    You did a wonderful job to show people about God and a faithful follower.
