All I Really Need To Know I Learned From Noah's Ark
  1. Always live a righteous life - even if you're the only one; it will be noticed.
  2. Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the ark.
  3. Stay fit. When you're 600 years old, someone might ask you to do something REALLY big.
  4. Don't listen to critics - do what has to be done.
  5. Listen to what God tells you - your life depends on it.
  6. Put action to your faith. Noah could have believed God, yet still drowned if he hadn't built the ark.
  7. Finish what you start.
  8. Two heads are better than one.
  9. Speed isn't always an advantage. The cheetahs were on board, but so were the snails.
  10. Don't forget that we're all in the same boat.
  11. Remember that the ark was built by amateurs and the Titanic by professionals.
  12. Remember that the woodpeckers INSIDE can be a bigger threat than the storm outside.
  13. Don't miss the boat.
  14. Have patience! The ark wasn't built in a year, and the flood wasn't finished in 40 days and 40 nights.
  15. If God is with you; no matter how bleak it looks, there's always a rainbow at the end.
  16. When God has brought you safely through the storm, don't forget to praise and thank Him.



Has long been atheist's Favorite object of ridicule.

Effected attitude. Cf. Santa Clause, Tooth Fairy. SMU Professor.

14 references to flood in N. T.; CF. Matt.24:37; IIPet.3 56.

Flood traditions unexplainable apart from common experience.


Genesis Description, 30 universal terms (Moses to Israel).

Gen.6:13, "all flesh....with earth".

Gen.7:19, 21, 23, "all", "every", "only".

All men and animals in one valley? (2000+ yrs.)

If one animal got out of "valley", one bird over hill, God lied.

Formula for predicting population from growth rate, P=(Po)*(Ert) according to college text, PRECALCULUS MATHEMATICS. Growth in 1991, 1.7%. Using conservative growth rate of .85%, 2 people plus 2500 yrs.= world population of 3.37 Billion.

Gen.6: 11, "earth filled with violence"

Rainbow covenant, Gen.9:15.


One Million Vertebrate Species.

75K maximum total on the ark.

HOW MANY LAND ANIMALS? (Mammals, Reptiles, Amphibians, Birds)


17,550 "SPECIES"      1,000 'KINDS"     x2                   x2 35,000 Animals       10,000 Animals +  100% Extinct       +100% Extinct 70,000 Regular       20,000 Regular +5,000 C1ean        + 1,000 Clean 75,000 Total         21,000 Total

Ark's Capacity.


@21" Per Cubit


        525' long               Well Over               Approximately         87.5'wide               Two Million             750         52.5'high               Cubit Feet              Railcars  

@240 Sheep Per Car



Kind = "Species"

Splitter's Estimate

Double For Extinction

Double Average Size

75,000 Animals To Be Carried

(180,000 Animals Could Be Carried)

All Animals Accommodated

In 42% of Ark Capacity W/Kinds, about 12%.


Implications Staggering.

Would revolutionize virtually all disciplines.

Flood says, "Sin is serious; God will judge.", II Pet.3:5.

Ark says, "God is merciful'', I Pet.3:20.

Those who refused mercy were judged. Body of Christ is type of Ark.

Do not refuse God's final offer of mercy.
