Dutch Man Builds Ark

Shifty Jim (862102) writes | more than 7 years ago

It's funny.  Laugh.

Shifty Jim writes "Johan Huibers, a Dutch creationist and contractor, has built a full-sized biblical ark in Schagen, Netherlands. From the article:
"Reckoning by the old biblical measurements, Johan's fully functional ark is 150 cubits long, 30 cubits high and 20 cubits wide. That's two-thirds the length of a football field and as high as a three-story house. Life-size models of giraffes, elephants, lions, crocodiles, zebras, bison and other animals greet visitors as they arrive in the main hold."
Designed by his wife and built mostly by Johan himself using modern tools, construction on the ark began in May 2005. Now he's just keeping his eyes peeled for some serious precipitation."
