What do you call a large ship designed to protect fresh water fish in the face of rising sea levels?


A multi story carp-ark.

Good luck putting two of every kind of animal, and their food for a few months onto that thing.

You'd be lucky to get 1/1000000 of the biomass required tucked in there.

It's floating proof that the bible is a huge crock of bullshit.

Not only that, but you have to feed all of the animals and clean all of the cages with just six people. Plus trying to keep it from sinking - wood plank ship, big storm.....

Aliens... Animal DNA stored on "ark".

Lots of room if you change the idea of the metaphorical ark.

Could explain some things... The odd side swell spills a few jars and you get the platypus and kiwis...

From the linked article,

"It probably was a bad day," Ballard said. "At some magic moment, [the water] broke through and flooded this place violently, and a lot of real estate, 150,000 square kilometres of land, went under."
The theory suggests that the story of the flood was passed down from generation to generation and eventually inspired the biblical account of Noah.


The story of Noah, goes farther in the Christian version than supported by any evidence. Much, Much farther.

Not sure what you are saying here?I know I found out about 'the drunkedness of Noah' a long time after I got away from religion. Funny how they didn't teach us that bit!!!Possibly why he made a good sailor!!

as I remember it....

When Noah got the Animals out to sea
he organized a regular Jubilee
and every day at half past three
Noah played poker with the chimpanzee
Cried the ringtrailed monkey "I sadly grieve.
Noah's got a full house up hs sleeve."

Old man Noah Knew a thing or two
he made 'em all play ball
Noah made 'em all play ball
Old Noah knew a thing or two
Because he knew a thing or two'he thought he knew it all
some say he was an also ran
he was the original sailor man'
old man Noah knew a thing or two
he was a grand old man.

The much farther part i was talking about had to do with the flood being higher than the highest mountain after which all that water disappeared with a rainbow from god. However yes, apparently some time in his 900s his son (?) found him naked and drunk in a tent and something or another. I believe there was some damning stuff related to that.

Also yeah, many creationists believe the story as actual historical fact, just as, if you read Joshua Slocum's book. He encountered Europeans in Africa who believed the Earth was flat, still in the late 1890s as a matter of faith.

The Bible is just one step to far into fiction for me. Wouldn't be so bad if millions of people didn't believe it and run their lives by it.

On Ballard in 1985 he was employed by the USN to find and send his deep sea robot to look at the nukes of two sunk USN Nuke Subs the North Atlantic swallowed in the same area as the Titanic sunk . The hole found the Titanic thing was in short a cover story at the end of the sub locating and seeing how the nukes were doing on the bottom thing ended. For the inter view he did on the CBC here. What was he really looking at / dropping off in the Black Sea is the next question?

Hah.............. I can say I know too much of it for my own good!!!

Raised in a cult religion and didn't see the light until I was about 25.
Yes, I know, slow learner.

Some of that brain washing remains, but I mainly use it to make fun of the crappy book now.

At one time, on my bookshelf, I had Mein Kampf, King James Version Bible, my Dad's cult religion bible and Origin of the Species (Charles Darwin) next to each other.

Often thought one day I would see a motlen mass on the shelf where they used to sit................
