    4,000 Year Old Document Sheds New Light On Noah's Ark

    It was ROUND. Designed to bob up and down in the water. It was not intended to sail, but only to survive.

    "It was really a heart-stopping moment - the discovery that the boat was to be a round boat," said Finkel, who sports a long gray beard, a ponytail and boundless enthusiasm for his subject. "That was a real surprise."

    And yet, Finkel said, a round boat makes sense. Coracles were widely used as river taxis in ancient Iraq and are perfectly designed to bob along on raging floodwaters.
    "It's a perfect thing," Finkel said. "It never sinks, it's light to carry."

    Other experts said Finkel wasn't simply indulging in book-promotion hype. David Owen, professor of ancient Near Eastern studies at Cornell University, said the British Museum curator had made "an extraordinary discovery."

    Question..how do you squeeze two of every animal on the planet into 41,500 cubic metres of space?

    Answer...


    Anyway. In an attempt to keep it light and interesting, here's an entertaining look at what might have happened if the floods were to occur in our time...

    It almost sounds more plausible than the myth...almost.

    Either way, it's a whopper of a tale...

    Now to be fair, neo-cons don't have the exclusive on crazy religion. There is enough of that to go around.

    Now here in Texas we have some true crazies infiltrating education to get creationism taught in public schools. Can't wait to see how far behind the rest of the world our students are after that catches on.

    Since it was god doing all this he could have just taught Noah about DNA and Cloning. He could have carried all the animals in his pocket.
