Articles in Noah’s Ark
Sixty-five feet long, and weighing 80 tons when it is completed, this is a truly home made ark, in the tradition of Noah. It might not be much to look at, but if it floats in a 2012 apocalyptic flood, it could just save the life of Lu Zhenghai.
Sadly, after two years of working on it, and with the Dec 21 doomsday just a few weeks away, the ark is not finished.
Lu Zhenghai lives in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in northwest China. Looks like he took the 2012 movie literally – the impossible idea of a tsunami flooding the Himalayas – so I’m sure he won’t be needing it!

In my opinion, it went something like this:
A few authors suggest a global cataclysm could occur in 2012
Patrick Geryl says a good way of surviving would be unsinkable yachts
Roland Emmerich makes the movie 2012, using many of Geryl’s ideas. He replaces yachts with massive steel arks
Hardened Structures starts making steel arks for clients
One of those real arks is pictured above. For $20 million you get a 900 ton steel ship that can hold 180 people and has supplies that will last for five years. this isn’t someone’s daydream, this is a genuine survival ark that (hopefully) will be used if a massive tsunami strikes where it is situated.

From Japan of course.
Only $4000. They have hundreds of pre-orders, but I couldn’t find out how I could get one – the manufacturer is Cosmo Power, but their website is in Japanese…
The craft is 1.2 meters in diameter, is made of fortified fibreglass, it can hold four adults and it has reportedly survived crash tests. It comes with built-in breathing vents and windows. The capsules cost just $4000 and they have advance orders for 600 already.
Went there are no tsunamis on the horizon, company president Shoji Tanaka suggests children could play in it.

As you can see from the video below (which is from Aronofsky’s graphic novel about Noah), this will certainly not be a cutesy story about pairs of animals. It’ll be more akin to The Passion of the Christ. There will be obvious appeal for survivalists because this story will show how one man has enough faith to prepare properly, but will also demonstrate survivor’s guilt – after the flood subsides Noah turns to drink.
It will go into production early next year, so I guess it will not be released until 2013… Read more here
If you follow my line of thinking, you might just agree with my hypothesis. It starts out by looking at the Bible as a historical record that has been exaggerated for religious purposes, and ends with an amazing find in Iran.
Ask any Biblical skeptic and they will supply you with many apparent contradictions that can be found in the Bible. This one is interesting:
Genesis 7:20 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.
Fifteen cubits is roughly eight meters. Either the mountains in those times were only eight meters in height, or we have a contradictory statement.
Given that it is physically impossible for mountains to be submerged for a prolonged period, I have investigated the possibility that the supernatural flood was a later addition to the story, an addition that seeks to make the Biblical god as mighty as possible.
Texts such as the Avesta and Gilgamesh predate …
With state-funding, a Christian ministry will build a $150 million theme park, featuring a full-size Noah’s Ark, complete with live animals. There will also be a Tower of Babel. Can’t wait to take my family, and it is aiming to open in 2014.
Those 500 million Facebook users now have access to a game all about 2012 – War of 2012. After a magnetic pole shift and solar flares, you are a member of “a tribe that happened to survive the pandemonium aboard the Genesis Ark“. Apart from the back story and the name, it is yet another Civilization clone… Far more interesting would be a prepping game where you have 2012-like deadline to prepare.
Tunguska-like atmospheric explosions occur several times a year, and we know this because NASA satellites spot them. Data on these “bolide” will soon be released so that scientists worldwide can better study them.
