Give us a transcript. I don't watch videos on my computer and I don't have speakers connected.

Do you also believe every living creature fit on that thing? You do know there are millions upon millions of different species? No chance.

Again, grow up, you're an adult!
Science has classified one million different species of animals. With seven of every clean and two of every other kind, it would seem we need space for at least 2,500,000 animals on the ark. …. BUT, the ark was no ‘toy boat!’ It was a gigantic barge with a volume of 1,396,000 cubic feet (assuming one cubit equals 17.5 inches).

The ark had a carrying capacity equal to that of 522 standard stock cars. (1) Regarding the multitude of animals: most of the list of a million are worms, insects, one-cell animals and sea creatures who would have no need to be on the ark. In fact, "there was need for no more than 35,000 individual vertebrate animals on the ark." (2) Chipmunk to elephant, let us assume the average size of an animal on the ark to be a sheep. Currently the railroad can fit 120 sheep on a stock car. Doing some fast figuring, the ark needed only to carry 292 stock cars worth of animals. Plenty of room for Noah, his family and extra hay.

Today God provides room for all men to find salvation at the cross. There is plenty of spare room for those who ‘could’ but, sadly, will not, make it. Are you doing your part to help fill the 'Christ Ark?'

Noah

The video is towards the bottom in the comments section. It's two hours long. It's also an interesting read on what archeologists have found to be the ark on Mt. Ararat in Turkey.

Wow, this is a blast from the past. It's always fun to bring up these oldies but goodies.

Abstract

A natural rock structure near Dogubayazit, Turkey, has been misidentified as Noah's Ark. Microscopic studies of a supposed iron bracket show that it is derived from weathered volcanic minerals. Supposed metal-braced walls are natural concentrations of limonite and magnetite in steeply inclined sedimentary layers in the limbs of a doubly plunging syncline. Supposed fossilized gopherwood bark is crinkled metamorphosed peridotite. Fossiliferous limestone, interpreted as cross cutting the syncline, preclude the structure from being Noah's Ark because these supposed "Flood" deposits are younger than the "Ark." Anchor stones at Kazan (Arzap) are derived from local andesite and not from Mesopotamia.
Creation Science 1 of 9

It is fascinating that it is still used as a actual claim of the Ark. Did you just come across this claim?

If I had to pay CD to read this sort of thing, I would, cheerfully.

Funny, funny stuff.

I don't know if I was relared to him or related to him. There aren't that many Nungessers in the USA so we might be related. Why? Did he leave a lot of money behind for me? In that case, I'm definitely related!

People are used to seeing a little toy boat, pointed at both ends with a few "cute" animals hanging out. No wonder they have no idea, beyond what those who believe it could not handle the cargo, want to claim.

I don't think the Bible says the ark was a rectangle shape.

Good heavens. Is this the NAMI thing? Hasn't that been pretty much shown up to be a fraud?
