เรือโนอาห์

 
อืม…น่าจะมีใครสร้างคริสตจักรเด็กแบบเรือลำนี้บ้างนะ
^^
 
behold the wonder. Of course, it’s only a replica of the Biblical Ark ,
built by Dutch Creationist Johan Huibers as a testament
to his faith in the literal truth of the Bible.


The ark is 150 cubits long, 30 cubits high and 20 cubits wide.

That’s two-thirds the length of a football field and as high as a three-story house.

Life-size models of giraffes, elephants, lions, crocodiles, zebras, bison
and other animals greet visitors as they arrive in the main hold.

A contractor by trade, Huibers built the ark of cedar and pine.
Biblical Scholars debate exactly what the wood used by Noah would have been.

 

Huibers did the work mostly with his own hands, using modern tools

and with occasional help from his son Roy. Construction began in May 2005.
On the uncovered top deck not quite ready in time for the opening – will
come a petting zoo, with baby lambs and chickens, and goats, and one camel.

Visitors on the first day were stunned. "It’s past comprehension",

said Mary Louise Starosciak, who happened to be bicycling by with her
husband while on vacation when they saw the ark looming over the local landscape.


"I knew the story of Noah, but I had no idea the boat would have been so big."  

There is enough space near the keel for a 50-seat film theater where kids
can watch a video that tells the story of Noah and his ark.  
Huibers, a Christian man, said he hopes the project will renew interest in
Christianity in the  Netherlands , where church going
has fallen dramatically in the past 50 years.

Now that I am old and Gray…give me the time to tell

this new generation (and their children too) about all your mighty miracles.  
Psalm 71:18
