Would You Two-By-Two Ride The Ark From Holland To Israel? PDF Print E-mail

So far it’s just a thought, but after five years of building an exact replica of the Biblical vessel, plans are to set sail in an actual ocean voyage. Dutch architect Johan Huibers believes Israel is the proper historic destination for the new Ark.

Since Noah’s large family, as well as the all kinds of animal couples, lived aboard the original Ark, there should be plenty cubits available for passengers and other creatures on the new Ark. According to the Bible, after it rained 40 days and 40 nights, the voyage lasted a year. Would you sign up for the new sailing?

If so, consider these questions:
Will you book my cabin next to the smelly elephant cabin?
Will the ship’s pool be open to animal passengers to swim?
On it’s long voyage, will the Ark’s menu include beef and poultry dishes?
Since the Ark doesn’t have sails, will passengers have to row?
When the long voyage is over, how much do I tip the Noah and his crew?
