Noah's Ark - A Scale Model Being Built to Demonstrate Feasibility

ICR Act & Facts reports that Ernie Carrasco is building an ark.

"Carrasco is a student in ICR’s School of Biblical Apologetics (SOBA). He is constructing a scale model of Noah’s Ark.

"He used the Bible as his primary research tool before starting the construction of the 1/60th scale model. “Dr. Henry M. Morris included some excellent notes in The New Defender’s Study Bible that offer great insight,” he said. Other valuable resources included The Genesis Flood by Drs. John Whitcomb and Morris, as well as Noah’s Ark: A Feasibility Study by John Woodmorappe.

"The interior of the model Carrasco started constructing in March 2010 measures approximately 7.5 feet long, 15 inches wide, and over nine inches tall. He said he plans to leave one wall open so viewers can see interior details such as stairwells and animal pens.

“Well, Noah took 120 years to build his. And it is a 1/60th scale model, so that means two years,” he laughed. “I think I have some time.”
