THE GREATEST DISASTER OF ALL HISTORY – ONLY 8 PEOPLE SURVIVED!
So… ever wondered exactly how big Noah’s Ark actually was? A modern day carpenter who loves God was inspired to build one. It holds more than 5000 people. Check out this short promo video from arcofnoah.org (Netherlands). It will blow you away. This is majestic! Love the music, too.
Here are some pics of his HALF SIZE Noah’s Ark that he made first, like a warm up to the one above. It gives you a really good perspective of the size with the people walking past. If you are writing to your sponsored child about Noah’s Ark, include some of these great pictures, information, colouring pages, puzzles, crafts and creative ideas.
THINK SPOT: If there was a worldwide flood as the Bible tells us, what evidence would we expect to see around today? How about billions of dead things buried in rock layers, laid down by water, all over the earth. What do we see? Billions of dead things buried in rock layers, laid down by water, all over the earth… and did you know that 70% of the earth is covered by water. Yes… 70%! (In fact, NASA figures are even higher at 75% – see the footnote at the end of this post). Seriously, have you ever wondered where all that water came from? Scientists have no idea. But the history book of the universe – the Bible – tells us exactly where all that water came from. Read more… (icr.org; from scientists who take the Bible seriously)
Just a word of caution before we start. Please be careful if you choose ‘cute’ – we all love those tiny arks with the giraffes sticking out of the top, but it leaves a fairy tale image that is NOT Biblical. Think ocean liner! Make sure you tell your child about the REAL Noah.
Genesis 5:28 – Genesis 9 tells the complete story of the REAL Noah. Don’t rely on Hollywood – read the real story for yourself.
Genesis 7:11-20 …in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights… And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth. And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters. And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered. Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.
Psalm 104:5-9 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever. You covered it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains. At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away. They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which You had founded for them. You have set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.
Isaiah 54:9 For this is as the waters of Noah unto me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.
Matthew 24:37-38 “But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark.” These words of Jesus Christ (aka the Creator) refer to Noah’s Flood as a REAL historical event.
Luke 3:36 [Noah is a REAL person listed in the genealogy of Jesus Christ, that goes all the way back to Adam and Eve. They are all listed in YOUR genealogy also – if you could take it back that far. Mine too. Every person alive on Earth today is descended from Noah and his sons.]
Hebrews 11:7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.
1 Peter 3:20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
2 Peter 2:5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly.
Amos 5:8 Seek him that makes the seven stars and Orion, and turns the shadow of death into the morning, and makes the day dark with night: that calls for the waters of the sea, and pours them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name.
Amos 9:6 It is he that builds his stories in the heaven, and has founded his troop in the earth; he that calls for the waters of the sea, and pours them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name.

THINK SPOT: The Earth before and after the flood was very different as it experienced huge upheaval. Did you know that if the earth’s surface were flattened out, with no high mountains or deep ocean basins, the ocean would cover the earth to a depth of about 8,000 feet. And did you know that marine fossils have been found everywhere on Earth, even at the top of Mount Everest and in the middle of vast deserts?! Not surprising really, since they were once covered by ocean water. (from icr.org; scientists who take the Bible seriously).
DID YOU KNOW: There are legends of a global flood in 270 different cultures. Also not surprising, considering that everyone alive on Earth today is related to Noah and his family. “Today, over 270 cultures retain distant memories of that “life-changing event.” The details have been lost, but most of the legends share common themes: Man became corrupt; the Flood was worldwide; eight people survived; representatives of all land animals were saved; a dove was released to seek dry land; the survivors came down from a mountain to re-populate the whole world…” (Answers in Genesis)

Global flood traditions from all over the world (icr.org) from scientists who take the Bible seriously; one of the strongest evidences for the global Flood that annihilated all people on Earth except for Noah and his family has been the presence of flood legends in the folklore of people groups from around the world. And the stories are all so similar. Local geography and cultural aspects may be present, but they all seem to be telling the same story. Over the years I have collected more than 200 of these stories… While the differences are not always trivial, the common essence of the stories is instructive… Once there was a worldwide flood sent by God to judge the wickedness of man. But there was one righteous family that was forewarned of the coming flood. They built a boat on which they survived the flood along with the animals. As the flood ended, their boat landed on a high mountain, and they descended and repopulated the whole earth; share a snippet with your child
The Reason for the Flood (Dr Chuck Missler) Have you ever thought God was unjust or cruel to send the terrible disaster of Noah’s Flood? This article discusses that big question… why. You may not know that God actually had a gene pool problem that threatened to corrupt not only humanity, but more importantly, the Messiah line, which would prevent the Messiah ever being born; and therefore forever condemn mankind in our sin. This diabolical plan was intended to stop God’s plan of redemption for mankind in its tracks. After reading this, a lot of strange passages in the Bible suddenly started to make sense; share it with your child; free printable

ArkEncounter.com Answers in Genesis and the Creation Museum have constructed a new Noah’s Ark tourist theme park in USA that features a full-size Noah’s Ark (opened 2016). The massive ark structure is sure to make your jaw drop when you see it. It has been partly built by Amish timber framers using incredible workmanship. It’s the largest timber frame structure in the world—with some wooden beams more than 3 feet in diameter and nearly 50 feet long. Inside the Ark, the ship’s handcrafted animals will amaze you. You’ll recognize some of the animals, but prepare to meet some odd-looking creatures you’ve probably never even heard of as many of the animals that lived during Noah’s lifetime didn’t look much like the animals we see around today, as they were the original KINDS that God created. Check out this cool drone footage of the ark as it was under construction and share it with your child. If you are looking for a different twist to this theme, maybe you might like to share how this ark was built; or even how 21st century video gaming technology was used to make 3D people and animal models.
Ark of Noah (see the video at the top of this post; and this interview with the man behind this incredible project) Another amazing Biblical full size Noah’s Ark built in the Netherlands and now on a worldwide journey with a message of hope – and yes, it floats!
Noah’s Ark – full size ark replica / tourist resort A massive tourist resort complex in Hong Kong – 5 stories high – complete with animals – has been built to the (almost) exact dimensions of the original ark. They actually ran out of room, so are a bit short. Click on the ‘park attractions’ – then ‘park map’ to get some idea of the size. Here is a photo of the actual ark sitting near the freeway and you can clearly see a bus passing overhead (which looks tiny in comparison). More great photos here. Dr Carl Wieland from creation.com was curious enough to fly there and spend a whole day in this massive tourist complex, but still not seeing everything, and notes that it is 5 storeys high. “Where the original Ark had three decks, its Hong Kong counterpart has five levels. The ground floor has an ocean-front restaurant and banquet hall, and the top floor is “Noah’s hotel” with sea views.”
How long was Noah’s Ark? (Answers in Genesis) Let’s compare it to things we are familiar with – like airplanes, football fields, NASA space shuttles, Olympic swimming pools, submarines, aircraft carriers, telephone poles and railway cars.
How did Noah fit all the animals on the Ark? (Answers in Genesis) Noah didn’t take two of every species on the Ark—only two of each “kind” of animal. The biblical “kind” is actually more like the “family” level of classification. That’s a lot fewer animals! Share this very quick snippet (more like a sound bite) with your child
Noah’s Ark Q&A for kids (Answers in Genesis) How big was Noah’s Ark? Which animals did he take? How did Noah care for the animals? Did the flood really cover the whole Earth? Is there any evidence today of a global flood? Could the ark have survived the flood? Has the ark ever been found?
Noah’s Ark – Quick Fun Facts for Kids (Answers in Genesis) When did God flood the world? How long was their trip? How big was the Ark? What did the animals eat? Were dinosaurs too big for the Ark? What was the ark made of? How did the water come? Who shut the door? Where is Noah’s Ark today? How big is a cubit? Where did all the flood waters go? (They’re still here! At the end of the Flood, the valleys sank down and the mountains rose up. The flood waters ran off the land and into the oceans).
Dinosaurs on the Ark? – Quick Fun Facts for Kids (Answers in Genesis) We often hear that dinosaurs died out millions of years ago. But that’s not true. God’s Word, the Bible, tells us something totally different. It’s NOT a big mystery. Dinosaurs were created about 6,000 years ago on Day 6 with the other land animals AND with people. Yes, dinosaurs and humans lived together. Dinosaurs were on Noah’s Ark. God sent at least two of each air-breathing, land-dwelling animals.
One Flood, One Boat, One Man and One God – Quick Fun Facts for Kids (Answers in Genesis) Everyone, beginning with Adam and Eve (the first two people), has disobeyed God. That’s called sin. Only 1,700 years after creation—about 4,300 years ago—the people were so disobedient to God that God sent a flood, Noah’s Flood, to kill every person and air-breathing land animal on the earth. God is very patient. He gave the people a long time to stop sinning, but they wouldn’t. Who survived? Will there be another global flood? How does God provide a way for us to escape His judgement?
How could the flood cover Mt Everest? (creation.com) from scientists who take the Bible seriously; Earth’s highest mountains have fossils of sea creatures at their tops, showing they were once under the sea… mountains such as the Himalayas were probably built by catastrophic movement of the earth’s continental plates during and after the Flood… Measurements indicate that the Himalayas are still rising. The rate of rise now measured is just the remnant of the processes that occurred much faster in the past. Mountain building occurred as a part of the geologic processes that deepened the oceans to take the waters off the land towards the end of the Flood… enough water on all the earth to cover mountains about 3 km (2 miles) high, if all the ocean basins were raised.
Where did all the water go? (creation.com) from scientists who take the Bible seriously; If the earth’s surface were even, then there is enough water in the oceans to cover the globe to a depth of about 3 km. This suggests that, during the Flood, the ocean floor moved vertically relative to the continents, something mentioned in the Bible (Psalm 104:8)… The ocean basins would have only had to rise enough for the water to cover everything. Then, in the second half of the Flood, other parts of the earth’s crust sank. The water flowed off our continents into new ocean basins. Movement of the earth’s crust at this time also pushed up new mountain ranges, including the one that is home to Mt Everest. So where did all the water go? It is in the ocean.
Where did all the water go? This NASA image has the answer (icr.org) from scientists who take the Bible seriously
You can see the effects of Noah’s Flood today – Quick Fun Facts for Kids (Answers in Genesis) When you travel on the highway, look at any rocky hillsides that were cut away for the road. You’ll see lots of layers. When you see these layers, remember the Flood of Noah’s day. The Flood would have stirred up many different types of mud and rocks. Eventually, the floodwaters deposited them in layers. Over time, these hardened into the many layers of rock that we see today. This didn’t happen over millions of years—instead, it happened mostly during the Flood, just a few thousand years ago. Most fossils formed during Noah’s Flood, as sand and mud came and covered the animals and plants, killing them quickly and turning them into fossils.

Noah’s Ark – Q&A (creation.com) for answers to all those tricky questions you may have (and if you have them, your child will too); from scientists who take the Bible seriously – Was the ark big enough? How could all those animals fit? Was the flood really global? What about the dinosaurs? Where did the water come from? Where did all the water go? Is there historical evidence of a global flood? Geology? Fossils? Animal migration?… and more
Tom and Jenny find out the ark was big enough to hold 432 double-decker buses (Answers in Genesis; scroll down)
How big was Noah’s Ark (Answers in Genesis) Noah’s Ark was a massive ship. This wooden vessel measured 510 feet long, 85 feet wide, and 51 feet high. These are staggering dimensions… Think of it this way—it would take nearly one and a half football fields to equal the Ark’s length, and the Ark had the storage capacity of 500 standard semi-trailers. That’s big enough that NASA could lay three space shuttles—nose to tail—on the Ark’s roof! You’ll love how huge it was.
Why are fairytale arks so dangerous? (Answers in Genesis) There’s no explanation for the cause of the Flood. There’s certainly no mention of sin or past and coming judgment… And we think they’re dangerous. We’re dedicating an entire exhibit at the Ark Encounter to warn people how they could be unknowingly teaching their kids to disbelieve the Bible from a young age… Let’s remember that the biblical account of the Ark and the Flood is not a fun story about an old man and lots of cute animals. It’s about God judging an exceedingly wicked world while sparing a righteous man, his family, and representatives of the land animals from destruction. You’ll also learn the 7D’s of Deception (a twist on the Creation Museum’s 7C’s of History), such as Deceptively Cute, Disregarding God’s Word, Distorting the Message, e.g. – Many of the fairy tale arks are extremely cute and were surely drawn with great intentions. However cute things are not necessarily innocent or harmless, and good intentions can lead to disastrous consequences

The Deluge – Flood of Noah (by Dr Chuck Missler) article to discuss with older kids – Did it really happen? Was the Ark big enough? Where did it rest? And did you know that the “new beginning” of the world under Noah, was on the very “anniversary-in-advance” of our “new beginning” in Jesus Christ. The New Testament is in the Old Testament concealed; and the Old Testament is in the New Testament revealed. One book. One Message. It’s all about Him.
The Terrible Flood of Noah (khouse.org) an article by a scientist who takes the Bible seriously; the purpose of the Flood was to judge and destroy a decadent, thoroughly evil human civilization that probably numbered some billions of individuals, along with their cities and all the infrastructures. Noah escaped, not because he was blameless (justified by his faith as we are), but because he (and his family) responded to God’s mercy and grace; free printable

The second greatest catastrophe of all time (creation.com) this article includes a photo of an incredible fossil of an ichthyosaur, buried and fossilised while giving birth – clear evidence that it was buried quickly by water-borne sediments. The fossil record is consistent with creatures having been buried suddenly, otherwise most creatures would either rot or be devoured by scavengers.
Students surprised to find Noah’s Ark feasible (icr.org) Advanced physics students at a secular UK university were given an unusual assignment… to determine if the Biblical dimensions of Noah’s ark—assuming it was properly constructed—could have supported 70,000 animals. Students were extremely surprised at what they found…
Declining life spans of Adam’s descendants (icr.org) From Noah to Abram, the numbers reveal an overall steep trend of diminishing life spans. When the data is plotted on a graph, a definite exponential curve emerges. What caused this pattern? [Fascinating.]
Did Adam and Noah really live for hundreds of years? (Answers in Genesis) from scientists who take the Bible seriously; similar claims of long life spans are found in the secular literature of several ancient cultures (including the Babylonians, Greeks, Romans, Indians, and Chinese). But even a life span of nearly 1,000 years is sadly abbreviated when we consider that God initially created us to live forever.
Hollywood is releasing a movie, simply called ‘Noah’ (2014). You can read a review about the Noah movie here, here or here. Ray Comfort (Living Waters) was so concerned about this bizarre and unbiblical portrayal, despite the clever trailers that make it look acceptable, that he is protesting by releasing his own Noah movie on the same day. (Updated: I have inserted his movie at the foot of this post).
Noah’s Ark – story for kids As the years passed, people began to fill the Earth. But when God saw that man’s wickedness covered the Earth, and that every imagination of his heart was only evil continually, it grieved the Lord… Because people have filled the Earth with violence, I will destroy them along with the Earth.

nextmanga.com (for purchase) The story of the universe in manga form. A comic book Bible series that keeps kids/teens (and adults!) riveted. Book 1 (Mutiny) tells the story starting from creation in Genesis 1 and up to time of the Exodus from Egypt (somewhere around Exodus 15). And I love how they have added a few extra frames of background history to give a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the true villain of history. The top angel (a created being like us) rebels against the Creator; is kicked out of Heaven; becomes God’s arch enemy; and arrives on earth to create mischief, mayhem and havoc with (as he sneers) ‘God’s favoured ones’ – humans. To rob, kill and destroy. Buy and send a few pages at a time. It’s also an excellent gift idea for a sponsor visit. My kids loved these. Monica told us that it was her favourite book. :)

Has Noah’s Ark been found? (Answers in Genesis) short answer… not yet!
Searching for Noah’s Ark (Bob Cornuke video ~ follow him as he investigates the rumours ~ very interesting)
Ocean Commotion VBS (Answers in Genesis) Every day, our kids are challenged to stand for God in their schools, among their friends, in our culture. And they’re bombarded with the lie that God’s Word isn’t true when it talks about earthly things (rocks, fossils), so it can’t be trusted to tell the truth about spiritual things. Noah experienced the same challenges during the time of the great Flood thousands of years ago. Yet, by God’s grace, he was able to Stand for God, Obey God, Trust God, Thank God, and Fear God . . . no matter what. The biggest watery catastrophe the world has ever known happened during his lifetime. But through it all, Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. Let your kids dive deep into the account of Noah and the Flood from the book of Genesis! They’ll learn to apply the spiritual lessons from Noah’s life to their own. And, along the way, they’ll uncover earthly lessons from the Flood: how all the animals fit on the Ark, how the Flood covered the whole Earth, and how we can still see the effects of this Flood today. They’ll also learn that the flood legends from around the world are based on the true account in Genesis

A fossil clock? – how fast do rocks form? (Answers in Genesis) Because of the intense evolutionary indoctrination we’ve all received, most people assume that it takes millions of years for sediment—like sand or mud—to harden into rock. But given the right ingredients, this can actually happen quickly. Like mixing cement…
