The Netherlands


After a nightmare of God drowning your country, would you even risk not building a new Noah’s Ark based on the biblical dimensions? Via CNN:

A Dutchman has built a replica of Noah’s Ark to biblical proportions, following a dream his homeland would be flooded. Johan Huibers, a wealthy businessman, used the ancient measurement of the cubit — the length of a man’s arm from elbow to fingertips — to build the vessel to the dimensions specified in the book of Genesis.

The finished craft…has just been opened to the public on the Merwede River in the Dutch town of Dordrecht. Huibers has filled his ark, which will operate as a “Bible museum,” with life-sized plastic animals and an aviary of live birds to give visitors more to interact with.
