18. Forbidden Knowledge of the Great Flood
83. Noah's Ark and the Flood
There are at least 16 different proofs of Noah's Ark and the flood. It may be that Noah's Ark was found in April 2010 and at other times in history. See http://www.squidoo.com/noahsarkfound This Section gives sixteen proofs of the Flood including carbon dating, fossils, mountains, meteors and more, including its time of about 4,200 years ago. Five more proofs are based on evidences of rapid nuclear decay of radioactive isotopes in rocks, residual helium and 14C in rocks and crystals. The following paragraphs in italics are taken from the book Little Thinkers - - Squeezing Common Sense out of Life's Toughest Questions, of which I am joint author with two others, Greg Hickle and Roger Rosenquist.
Many people cannot believe the Bible because it is impossible to pack that many animals into Noah’s Ark. It may at first seem to be impossible. However, a few simple mathematical calculations indicate that it is not only possible, but also reasonable.
The dimensions of Noah’s ark were 300 cubits long by fifty cubits wide by 30 cubits deep. A cubic is about 18 inches. This comes out 675.000 million cubic feet. Zoologists believe there are about 1.5 million species of animals and more than 265,000 species of land plants. Of these, about 750,000 are insects, crustaceans, arachnids and their kind, 90,000 mollusks, snails, clams, squids, octopuses and their kind, 18,000 flatworms, 12,000 roundworms. There are only 4,000 mammal species known today, about half of which are aquatic animals. It was not necessary to put aquatic animals or bacteria on the Ark. It was not necessary to put plants on the Ark, as the seeds were abundant to re-seed the earth after the flood subsided. This leaves about 400,000 pairs of terrestrial animals, including insects. The insects were most likely clinging to floating debris such as logs. Ants and other insects take up very little space, and could be on the surfaces in the ark.
This leaves about 2,000 pairs of animals for which to find significant space. So there was an average of about 337.5 cubic feet per pair of animals, and this is plenty of space for all the animals. At the county fair, a typical pair of animals such as a pair of sheep takes up about 75 cubic feet. This would leave 675 cubic feet of extra space on the ark for each pair of animals to move around or group with others. Many pairs of birds could fit in 750 cubic feet, and two elephants might take up 1,500 cubic feet. Most animals are much smaller than an elephant. A pair of horses, for example, might take up 750 cubic feet. So you can plainly see that there was considerable room left over for passageways, food and other needs. We suggest you read Dr. Walter T. Brown, In the Beginning: Compelling Evidence for Creation and the Flood (7th Edition) by Dr. Walt Brown. Copyright © 1995–2002, Center for Scientific Creation and John C.

It is not only the Jewish historians that have records of the great flood. The ancient Sumerians, Chinese, Babylonians, Hittites, Assyrians, and Egyptians all recorded a world-wide flood.
The Chinese today sell stone and jade carvings, replicas of an ancient original carving at the beginning of the Chinese race. It is a boat with eight people on it four women and four men. Any Chinese will tell you that these are the eight immortals who sailed on a boat from heaven to found the Chinese nation.
Note that Noah, his wife, their three sons and their wives also came off a boat and repopulated the earth. According to Genesis, Noah lived three hundred and fifty years after the flood and died at nine hundred and fifty years of age (Genesis 9:28-29). Shem lived five hundred and two years after the flood, and died at the age of six hundred and two (Genesis 11:10-11). Before the flood, the Bible tells us, people lived from eight hundred to almost a thousand years. After the flood, the average age dropped to seventy years. So to the descendants of Noah, the eight people on the ark appeared to be immortal.
In 1883, the Turkish army discovered the ark on Mount Ararat. They entered it, and brought back pieces of its petrified wood. This was rejected or ignored by the modern world because of Darwin’s theory of evolution. But because of the report, the Czar of Russia sent his army in 1917 to thoroughly investigate it, make drawings of its architecture, and photograph it. When the Czar’s government was overthrown by the communists, these records disappeared. The records were reported by the Czar’s daughter, who made a cross from pieces of the wood.
Since then, there have been numerous sightings and photographs from a helicopter. It was used as a landmark by US pilots during World War II. Reportedly, there are US satellite photographs, which are not released for security reasons. The Russians, and most recently, the Kurds have prevented people from visiting the site. The Turks visited the ark many times before the Kurds recently made it impossible.
Probably the best book on evidence of the flood is written by Dr. Walter T. Brown, In the Beginning: Compelling Evidence for Creation and the Flood (7th Edition) by Dr. Walt Brown. Copyright © 1995–2002, Center for Scientific Creation.
The descendants of the three sons of Noah were dispersed throughout the entire earth from the Tower of Babel in Babylon. Other than the Genesis record, history of other civilizations does not go back before the flood. Yet there are reports of the flood by various civilizations existing after the flood occurred in about 2500 BC. We see indications of the Flood everywhere because wherever humans are found all over the earth, no matter how remote, the sacrifices that God instructed Adam and Eve to conduct as payment of their sins, and which were passed down to Noah; these sacrifices were carried out, often including human sacrifices rather than the animal sacrifices that God commanded. Other indications include sea shells found on mountain tops, trees, plants and animals found in sedimentary rock that is found in many unlikely places throughout the world.
Evolutionists do not believe in the flood of Noah or that a typical life span before the flood was in the range of nine hundred years. The Bible describes a completely different environment before the flood in which the entire earth enjoyed a uniform subtropical climate.
During the flood, an enormous explosion released water from underground caverns. An enormous amount of this water shot up into space and then returned frozen to dump on the North and South Poles, following earth's magnetic lines. This instantly froze mastodons that were feeding on the tropical vegetation.
Evolutionists have long ignored the frozen mastodons found in the Arctic Circle instantly frozen and still having half-masticated tropical vegetation in their mouths. Scientists participating in the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program's Arctic Coring Expedition (ACEX) in 2004 have now discovered that the Arctic was once a subtropical environment and that fresh water conditions existed. http://publications.iodp.org/preliminary_report/302/302PR.PDF Of course the atheistic scientists came up with their usual unproven postulates and state them as facts that this was "a brief warming period that occurred 50 million years ago".
All recorded history begins at the time of Noah's ark and the possible time change from 360 days to 365 days in a year except for the Hebrew history, which begins at creation before the Flood. Except for the carefully preserved chronology of the Hebrew people, factual history of every nation on earth including Chinese forbidden knowledge and that only goes back to Sumerians around the time of the Flood of Noah. The earliest dated recordings that we definitely know about any nation before the Flood are recorded in the Hebrew Scriptures. An example is the Great Pyramid of Giza and other ancient pyramids in Egypt, which were overrun by one tribe after another beginning a few hundred years after the Flood. While most of the leaders of these civilizations and their astounding monuments are known, it is not until the time of Christ and Cleopatra that Egyptian history, other than what is recorded in the Scriptures, really becomes clear.
There are at least 16 proofs of Noah's Ark and the flood. Should not the time of the Flood as given in the Bible be studied? Britain's history from 500 AD to 1000 AD is mixed with mythology. 39 The history of Britain does not leave the realm of 'mythsteries' until about 3500 years after the Flood, sometime around 1000 AD. Beyond that, British history fades into mythology mixed with some history. There were many civilizations from the time of Adam and Eve to the Great Flood that ceased to exist at the time of the flood. Archeologists have found many evidences of the civilizations described in the Hebrew Scriptures predating the Flood, to which evolution-believing historians attach dates with wild abandon, ranging from 10,000 to 30,000 or even 100,000 to a few million years BC. Why then, do we not get serious about the time of the Flood, which has been recently discovered and reported in the news media on April 27, 2010? This Section cites five indications of the time of Noah's Ark and the Flood.
