Interesting Facts:

  • The size of the Ark was 450 feet (137m) long, 75 feet (23m) wide and 45 feet (14m) high
  • Over 16,000 animals could have easily fit onto the Ark
  • “Kind” of animal means Noah only needed to have one pair of dogs (for example), not one pair of every breed of dog
  • Noah probably took juvenile animals on the Ark. They would have taken up less room and had more breeding years after the Flood
  • Even dinosaurs could have fit on the Ark. The average dinosaur was the size of a sheep and even large dinosaurs were relatively small when young
  • Massive climate and geographic changes occurred as a result of the Flood. These changes could account for shorter life spans, ice ages and some scientists believe continental splits
  • Narratives of a worldwide flood exist in numerous ancient cultures all over the world
  • Large flood deposits, sea animal fossils found on mountain tops and large scale fossil finds point to a worldwide, cataclysmic flood
