A Massive, Massive Ship

A Local or Global Flood?

Part 3



This is Ken Ham, a missionary to our evolutionized culture—and even the church.


Noah’s Ark was a massive ship. Five hundred ten feet long, 51 feet high, and 85 feet wide. It easily fit all the animals God sent to Noah, plus supplies and Noah’s family. Some people argue that the Flood was just a local event. But why would God command Noah to build such a massive ship if he and his family could’ve just packed up and moved to an area outside of God’s judgment?

Genesis tells us every land-dwelling creature—and every person outside the Ark—perished. But if the Flood was local, some animals and people would’ve survived.

When we ignore what the Bible clearly teaches, we make God out to be a liar.
