When I Consider! – The Survivability of the Ark

Magnify the Lord

“Evidence From The Worldwide Flood”

“How could the Ark have survived a year-long water catastrophe without sinking? The study of hydrodynamics (the branch of physics having to do with the motion and action of water) has demonstrated that a giant boxlike vessel the size and shape described in the Bible would be almost unsinkable. Even in a sea of gigantic waves, the Ark could be tilted to almost a 90° angle and would always tend to right itself again. A vessel of this shape also aligns itself with the waves so that it experiences the least amount of pitching.

In 1604, a Dutchman named Peter Jansz, built two smaller ships with the same proportions as the Ark. These small “arks” could carry one-third more cargo than regular ships without requiring any additional crew and quickly became a popular cargo carrier.

The perfect engineering of the Ark, with the exact characteristics necessary to survive the Flood, points to God as the ultimate Designer. Every detail of the Bible confirms its accuracy and supernatural origin.”

The above quote is from January 15), “”A Closer Look at the Evidence – Kleiss,” by Richard and Tina Kleiss

This is how you are to make it: The ark will be 450 feet long, 75 feet wide, and 45 feet high. (Genesis 6:15 HCSB)

“When I Consider!” is based on: (Psalms 8:3-9) (3) When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained…(9) O LORD, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth!

  1. These are so interesting. I’m just now getting time to go through these Ark posts. All I can say is that if I ever had to be at sea a long time, I’d definitely want to be on a boat like this one.
