Notice that the box car is very small compared to the Ark, including Columbus's ship and the ark had three stories.
We know that Noah had to have been a very wealthy man or he could not have had the time or money to build the Ark, for 120 years. To be wealthy he had to have had a large successful business. Ken Ham and the Back to Genesis is building a full sized copy of Noah’s Ark in Kentucky and it will cost 24 million dollars, like the illustration above, this means Noah had to have been at least a multi millionaire by today’s standards. In addition he had to have had land to build it on. He also warned people for 120 years, he could not do that unless he had access to mass media which could reach the whole world, this takes money.
Noah’s ark was the most stable and sea worthy ship ever built. It had no windows, only one facing up which was sealed. It had air vents only along the top. It was designed to turn into the wind and waves. It floated like a log which cannot be sunk. The animals were brought to Noah in mated pairs of young juveniles. The Ark was three stories high with three floors each the size of a football field filled with different sized rooms. Noah gathered all the food and supplies needed for everyone to last over a year. The animals hibernated and slept most of the time. God took care of everyone on the Ark.
John Morris says the word rooms in the Ark were translated nests elsewhere in the Bible. This indicates that they rested most of the time as animals do under stressful conditions requiring little care.
The domestic animals only required two of each kind. Two cows, two horse,
two dogs, two cats. Man would multiply and breed them into different varieties we see today after the Flood was over.
WHY DID GOD CHOOSE ONLY 8 PEOPLE?
The Flood brings up questions, why was it that no one listened to Noah? And why is it only 8 people were saved?
The answer is given in Genesis 18, where Abraham appeals to the Angel to show mercy on Sodom and Gomorrah if there are 50 righteous there. Abraham knows how bad they are so he keeps reducing the number till he gets to 10 righteous people. The Lord agreed he would not destroy these evil cities if there were 10 righteous. This gives the principle that if there are 10 righteous he will not utterly destroy an evil group. However, He will bring tribulations on them.
How many righteous were there in Noah’s time? We do not know. There may have been many, but this number (just like today) was decreasing geometrically as time went on. Apparently just before the Flood there was only 10 righteous people, all others had died! Then Enoch was Raptured into heaven alive. And Methuselah died the year of the Flood. That left only 8 people!
There may have been thousands or millions of righteous people before the Flood, but when the Flood came there were only 8 left. In fact there was only one righteous and that was Noah. However the Bible says when you are saved he includes your family.
According to this web site, their speculative calculation on population growth based on today’s growth since the Flood, about 5 thousand years ago indicates there would have been about 50 million people killed in the Flood.
Actually there should have been more than that since people lived several
hundred years in those days, and were much healthier producing more children in a healthy environment.
However, my research indicates that this speculation may be wrong! If large carnivorous animals and continuous terrorism and war were common it is possible that man was almost extinct.
There is another factor I discovered in the course of this research for this book. Noah and his family were the only people who were still alive and had not had their bloodline contaminated by mixing with the Fallen Angels, their offspring the Nephilim, or their decedents. This explains why Ham was saved. He was not of the Nephilim bloodline, but he was rebellious, like Cain. So his descendants carried on the Nephilim bloodline after the Flood. Satan is very subtle (clever), Satan carries out his plans using those we think are Christians!
WHAT WAS THE PRE-CATACLYSMIC WORLD LIKE?
Other boundaries with extraterrestrial elements are found at the end of the Permian, Triassic, and Jurassic. This is not caused cyclic impacts over millions of years, but rather by cyclic tidal deposition during the first part of the year long Flood event. It was the moving water that deposited the sediment going to and fro. Once the ocean had risen enough to cover the land during the Flood, it became calm with much less deposition.
CONTINENTAL DRY LAND FOUNDED ON WATERS OF THE DEEP
1The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof;
the world, and they that dwell therein.
2For he hath founded it upon the seas,
it upon the floods.
Huge 'Ocean' Discovered Inside Earth | LiveSciencewww.livescience.com/1312-huge-ocean-discovered-earth.html
Michael Wysession, a seismologist at Washington University has announced his team’s discovery:
“Scientists scanning the deep interior of Earth have found evidence of a vast water reservoir beneath eastern Asia that is at least the volume of the Arctic Ocean.”
“Water covers 70 percent of Earth's surface and one of its many functions is to act like a lubricant for the movement of continental plates.”
This unbiased secular research supports creationist Dr. Walter Brown’s Hydro Plate theory. Evidence shows how the fountains of the deep under pressure pushed and hydroplaned the continents apart after the Flood, pushing limey deep ocean sediment unto the continents creating limestone and cementing sediment into rock during the first stages of the Flood.
Inner Earth May Hold More Water than the Seas
By Ben Harder for National Geographic News March 7, 2002
“Based on what they witnessed in their lab, the researchers concluded
that more water probably exists deep within the Earth than is present on Earth's surface—as much as five times more.”
Before the flood these water chambers were about 6.5 miles below the ocean floor, and 62 miles below the surface of the continents.
Before the catastrophe the world was a different place. There was one continent, and the oceans were lower and covered much less land. God created it perfect during creation week.
The sedimentary fossil record covers 75% of the earth’s surface, but accounts for only 8% of earth’s rocks. These surface sedimentary as well as volcanic rocks found with them, is a record of the worldwide cataclysm that covered the world with water for about a year. From creation week to this cataclysm the world existed from about 4004 BC to 2348 BC.
During this time consisting of about 1656 years, man created an advanced technological civilization, possibly more advanced than our own. They created a civilization led by Cain (the first Antichrist) in rebellion against God. Man’s pride in his inventions took the place of God. Like today they carried on wars, and conspiracies which made slaves out of people. They worshiped materialism and became wealthy merchants and formed a world government. Legends refer to this civilization as Atlantis. The Bible says men lived an average of 900 years. Both men and animals were larger than those living today. The fossil record proves this and shows the earth had a tropical climate world wide including the poles, and consisted of lush tropical vegetation, which has puzzled secular paleontologists. The cause of this was the radiation shield creating a green house effect worldwide.
FACTS OF SECULAR GEOLOGY CONFIRM THE BIBLE
University of California at Santa Barbara says, Fossil record shows tropical
climate. News.usb.edu fossil record shows tropical climate.
“In the mid Cretaceous, about 100 million years ago, the distribution of fossil plants, and large herbivorous dinosaurs, suggests sub-tropical conditions extended to Alaska and Antarctica and there were no polar ice caps. The planet was warmer than today – scientists have estimated it was 6- 8 degrees centigrade warmer. Carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere were about 5 times higher than today.”
Carbon Dioxide and water vapor makes a greenhouse effect and causes plants to thrive. Today political pseudo-scientists claim Global Warming, i.e. Greenhouse effect is caused by man and is bad. No, it is caused by the sun and is good.
The Bible confirms that there was a thermal hydrostatic equilibrium radiation shield screening out the harmful cosmic rays, ultraviolet, infrared, and radioactive radiation creating greenhouse effects. It also increased atmospheric pressure, and increased oxygen/carbon dioxide levels. As a result plants and animals were healthier lived longer and were more prolific. This explains the huge coal deposits over a short time. The Bible says there was no rain; water came up from the ground causing plants and flowers, only seen in tended gardens today, to grow everywhere.
6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
“4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens (Note that this says day, not indefinite period of time), 5 and every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. 6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.”
The best way to water potted plants is to submerge the pot in water so it comes up and saturates the soil. Watering from above can leave some roots dry when the water goes around dry areas.
geology.com › Historical Geology Recently, USGS scientists have used a gas QMS to determine the oxygen level of ancient samples of Earth's atmosphere from a most unlikely place - amber.
“Analyses of the gases in these bubbles show that the Earth's atmosphere, 67 million years ago, contained nearly 35 percent oxygen compared to present levels of 21 percent. Results are based upon more than 300 analyses by USGS scientists of Cretaceous, Tertiary, and recent-age amber from 16 world sites.* The oldest amber in this study is about 130 million years old.”
The facts are correct the dates are proven false.
Notice that at Peleg, lifespan drops 1/3rd again! This shows there was another catastrophic event when the earth was divided.
LIFE SPANS IN THE BIBLE MATCH OXYGEN LEVELS
The Bible tells us how long each person lived. And if you make a graph of these lifespans you find at the time of the Flood life span dropped by one third. Then after the Flood at the time of Peleg a cataclysm occurred between 100 to 339 years after the Flood (Using Ussher’s date 2247 BC to 2008 BC), and caused life span to drop another one third.
Also, Time Magazine November 9, 1987 p. 82 reports that Geochemists Gary Landis of the U.S. Geological Survey and Robert Berner of Yale say dinosaurs breathed easier because scientists found that bubbles in amber showed the atmosphere had 50% more oxygen that today.
Paleontologists till now have been mystified as to how such large flying reptiles could fly. The largest flying bird today is the Condor with wingspan of 10 feet. The flying reptile Tapejara and Tupuxuara had wingspans of 16 and 17 feet; and late Cretaceous, Quetzalcoatlus and Zhejiangopterus had wingspans which exceeded 30 feet. In 1870 an expedition led by three army scouts one of which was Buffalo Bill for Yale paleontologist O.C. Marsh during the Indian Sioux uprisings near the Little Big Horn (the author of Tarzan Edgar Rice Burroughs was in the 7th cavalry but left before this battle). Paleontologists at this time speculated that these flying reptiles had to live near ocean cliffs to use updrafts to glide because they were too large to flap their wings. Then in 1872 while exploring the Cretaceous beds along the Smoky Hill River in western Kansas collecting many marine reptiles called Mosasaurs, Marsh discovered a wing-finger of a pterosaur. This bone was larger than any other discovered at the time. Recent discoveries have shed more light on this subject.

“While most of a Pteranodon flight would have depended on soaring, like long-winged seabirds, it probably required an occasional active,
rapid burst of flapping, and studies of Pteranodon wing loading (the strength of the wings vs. the weight of the body) indicate that they were capable of substantial flapping flight, contrary to some earlier suggestions that they were so big they could only glide.”
Also, the atmosphere was thicker allowing larger creatures to fly.
See how the facts of science confirm the expectations from a creation viewpoint, and contradict evolutionary speculation! This is called the falsification of a hypothesis by observation and experimentation.
Templin, R. J.; Chatterjee, Sankar (2004). Posture, locomotion, and paleoecology of pterosaurs. Boulder, Colo: Geological Society of America. p. 60. ISBN 0-8137-2376-0.
“…it is theorized that they were able to fly due to the oxygen-rich, dense atmosphere of the Late Cretaceous period.”
Re-establishment of Civilization
Post-Flood Megalithic period during the Late Pleistocene Neolithic Period, was similar to the Pre-Flood world. The difference is the Pre-Flood advanced civilization had a much longer period to develop from the Paradise of Eden about 4004 BC, to the catastrophic Flood about 1656 years later in 2348 BC. The Post-Flood period of Nimrod’s kingdom which was an attempt to recreate the Pre-Flood advanced civilization lasted only about 113 years. Peleg was born in 2248 BC one hundred years after the Flood and in his day the earth was divided between 2248 and 2009 BC. Babel was founded about 13 years after his birth (the symbolic number of rebellion) in about 2235 BC. Then they were scattered by a change in their languages, before they were able to finish the construction of the advanced civilization. Peleg lived to the age of 239. So to determine when the scattering occurred, subtract 13 years from 2248. Then subtract 113 years and it comes to 2122 BC. Therefore the cataclysm occurred between 2122 to 2096 BC. Of course, some skeptics dispute these dates. But they are close enough.
SOME CREATION SCIENTISTS ARE MISLED
Ancient Documents Are Consistent with the Total Accuracy of the Bible’s Chronology.by Larry Pierce December 1, 1999 Answers in Genesis. Taken from Baumgardner, J., Probing the earth’s deep places, Creation Magazine19(3):40–43, 1997; Snelling, A.A., Plate Tectonics: Have the continents really moved apart? TJ 9(1):12–20, 1995.
“Four generations after Noah, Genesis 10:25 records the birth of Peleg (meaning division) “for in his days was the earth divided”. Some suggest the continents of the earth were divided at this time occur within a very confined time period. The resultant geological violence would be overwhelmingly catastrophic—like another Noahic Flood all over again. Any continental separation thus likely occurred during the Flood.”
This is incorrect. There was a major worldwide cataclysm similar to the Flood during Peleg’s life without continent covering water. Biblical, geological, historical, paleontological and myths support a Post-Flood cataclysm(s). A quote from Henry Morris shows he agrees that there was a massive worldwide cataclysm after the Flood. See the quote in the Preface.
KJVBible.org meaning of Peleg, contradicts the suggestion in the quote above:
“In the Hebrew language the word 'Peleg means a dividing by a "small channel of water" and is also root associated with the meaning of an earthquake. The Hebrew word used as 'divided in the passage means to "split" something (Note: Like an ax). According to the genealogy (Genesis 11:10-17), this man named Peleg was born 101 years after the flood. No doubt this Peleg was so named because of an event of great significance to the people living at the time he was born.”
“After examining the Hebrew meanings, a more plausible alternative interpretation would be that it describes an earth-splitting event such as a valley opening in the ground and filling with water. That could have happened anywhere along the Dead Sea Rift zone and may have been associated with a delayed adjustment of the Earth's plates in response to the rapid subsidence of the sea floors by the flood. In theory, when the weight of the waters of the flood forced the sea floors downward to fill the void beneath, strain would have developed between the oceanic and continental portions of the crustal plates. Consequently, tectonic pressures were redistributed. About 100 years later the strain and pressure redistribution may have caused the Earth's crust to rapidly rent in weaker places, much like a piece of ridged plastic which can be stretched and deformed. It will eventually snap if the strain remains constant. An abrupt further change in sea levels could possibly accompany such an event.”
Abraham witnessed the Seismic Destruction of Sodom and ...destination-yisrael.biblesearchers.com/.../abraham-witnessed-the-seismic-...Feb 10, 2011 - The Great African Rift Valley The Patriarch Abraham was the witness of one of the most defining cosmic and cataclysmic events in earth's history.
“Like the Atlantic Ridge, the Great Rift is actually part of a mid-oceanic ridge system consisting of submerged mountain ranges encircling the globe.”
“The Patriarch Abraham was the witness of one of the most defining cosmic and cataclysmic events in earth’s history, when he first hosted three inter-dimensional guests who later revealed to him that they were divine emissaries on a rescue mission; to warn Abraham that his nephew Lot and his family were targets for annihilation except for divine warning, divine intervention and a timely escape. Such surrounds the epic drama of the destruction with fire and sulfur of the beautiful Lake District surrounding the Vale of Siddim.
“What was reported in the biblical drama was only a small fragment of the bigger drama. It no doubt involved global continental earth changes, as cataclysmic changes that forever altered the topography on the nearby continent of Africa. Unknown to Abraham, he was the eyewitness to a seismic event that ripped the mantle of the Continent of Africa and tore a gash down the eastern segment of Africa from the Red Sea through the Congo basin south towards the Kalahari Desert in South Africa. Here is where we begin to explore from the days of Abraham, the destruction of the cities of the plain including Sodom and Gomorrah, all the way down the African Great Rift Valley.”
Here are the fossil sites formed AFTER the Flood at the time of Peleg during what the evolutionists call the Pleistocene.
Under Sodom and Gomorrah there were oil deposits that contained methane gas which is explosive, just like at the La Brea asphalt seeps in Los Angeles.
New discoveries at the middle Pleistocene acheulian site of Gesher Benot Ya'aqov, Israel adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/1992QuRes..38..117G Harvard University by N Goreninbar - 1992 associated with Smithsonian/NASA Astrophysics Data System
The Gesher Benot Ya'aqov archaeological site in the northern Dead Sea Rift of Israel contains Acheulian artifacts and middle Pleistocene fossils.
“The Gesher Benot Ya'aqov archaeological site in the northern Dead Sea Rift of Israel contains Acheulian artifacts and middle Pleistocene fossils.”
“…two trenches at the new study area have produced abundant basalt, flint, and limestone artifacts, mammalian and avian fossils, and considerable plant material.”
This Pleistocene Rift occurred about the same time as the dividing of the continents between 2122 to 2096 BC, at or about the same time as Peleg, during who’s lifetime the earth was divided showing there was a world wide catastrophic earthquake and volcanic event or several events years after the Flood, which geologists call orogeny which formed today’s mountain ranges.
Another catastrophic event will involve this same African Rift (like the San Andreas fault in California) at the end of the Tribulation Period, when Jesus returns to set his foot on the Mount of Olives and it is split in half producing a huge valley.
“4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. 5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before theearthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah (Author’s Note: Uzziah lived between 809 to 757 BC): and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee. 6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark: 7 but it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light. 8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.”
This is what happened in Cajon Pass where the San Bernardino Mountain chains in California, when they were uplifted by the San Andreas Fault during a Pleistocene orogeny causing the Cretaceous marine Flood strata to move against the Post-Flood terrestrial Pliocene strata for 24 miles, resulting in volcanic eruptions. It also reversed the flow of the Mojave River back inland to end at Baker underground. This is when all the mountain barriers in coastal California were formed! This involved a worldwide upheaval.

Some creationists still think most of the fossil deposits after the Cretaceous are Flood deposits, some include the Pleistocene which is obviously Post-Flood. Researching for this book, I have discovered to my surprise that everything after the Cretaceous is Post-Flood.
Bill Hoesch is a creation scientist currently on staff as a Research Geologist, field tour guide, and speaker for the Institute for Creation Research. He received a bachelor’s degree in Geology from the University of Colorado and a Masters degree from the ICR Graduate School he told me the Flood boundary was the KT boundary and other creationists who believed Cenozoic mammals were Flood deposits, that “They were not trained in geology.”
Also, the majority of creation researchers believe there could not be a worldwide post Flood cataclysm. One of these claimed in The Institute for Creation Research’s Acts and Facts,
“The resultant geological violence would be overwhelmingly catastrophic—like another Noahic Flood all over again.” Exactly right! The cataclysmic Post-Flood Oligocene of South Dakota, and the Pleistocene mammals they think are Flood deposits are examples of catastrophic events after the Flood. I have examined hundreds of fossil sites and geology, and that is exactly what I have seen in the genealogical records, the Bible, as well as geology, ancient history, ice cores, legends, and fossil seashells. There was a huge worldwide cataclysm (or series of them) after the Flood during the Post-Flood period after large mammals and humans had repopulated the earth, and I have been trying to understand it. This Post-Flood world before Peleg, was tropical and there were no ice caps at the poles or in the arctic for a period of time after the Flood. Henry Morris stated his belief in a Post-Flood worldwide cataclysm which I quoted in the Preface.
