Noah and Technology

Ark Week

Part 1



This is Ken Ham, and our full-size Ark opens this Thursday south of Cincinnati.


As we have been building our Ark, many people have mocked us. They say: Well, Noah didn’t have technology to build the Ark, so why are we using it?

Well, we don’t know what kind of technology Noah had. The Bible doesn’t tell us. But we do know man was made in God’s image from the beginning. We have no reason to think man wasn’t just as intelligent as us—or perhaps even more so! Genesis tells us that just a few generations after the Flood, people were using metals and playing musical instruments.

Also, people lived longer before the Flood. Imagine what geniuses—living for 900 years—could invent! Starting with God’s Word, Noah could have had technology that might have made us jealous!
