Noah’s Ark was a massive ship, built at God’s command, that saved Noah, his family, and two of every kind of land animal from the global Flood that took place 4,350 years ago. It was 510 feet long, 85 feet wide, and 51 feet high and easily housed the several thousand animal kinds God brought to Noah.
The Bible gives us only a few details about the Ark’s appearance, but we can make some educated guesses based on basic principles of good shipbuilding. The more we learn about the origin of species, the more we know about Noah’s Ark. The Flood reverberates to the present day in the form of genetics. If not directly commanded by God to be included on the Ark, would some insects have been beneficial to Noah and, if so, how might they have come on board?
Ark Encounter, which features a replica of Noah’s Ark, is a Christian theme park that opened in Grant County, Kentucky on July 7, 2016, despite protestors. The centerpiece of the park is a full-scale model of Noah’s Ark 510 feet long, 85 feet wide, and 81 feet high.
