Would the Ark Have Floated?

Was There Really a Noah’s Ark?

This is Ken Ham, author of the eye-opening book, Six Days and church compromise.


Skeptics of the Bible often tell me that a wooden boat the size of Noah’s Ark could never have floated. But this claim ignores the fact that large wooden ships have been successfully used for millennia.

This also ignores a study done by a world-class ship-research center in South Korea. This team, headed up by an evolutionist, discovered that the dimensions given in Scripture for Noah’s Ark were the best possible for maximum stability, comfort, and strength. Noah’s Ark actually had the same dimensions as modern cargo ships. Noah’s Ark was a real ship that was built to keep mankind and animals alive during a real flood.

Despite these skeptical claims, we can trust God’s Word.
