Noah and the Ark

Richmond Beach, Seattle, WA

Lately I’ve been running into articles on Noah and the ark.

The first one is in Kentucky. The Kentucky Tourism Development Finance Authority has granted more than $40 million in tax incentives for a planned $172 million Bible-based theme park which has a full-size replica of Noah’s ark with live animals. To read that article, click here.

The second article is about a man who is in construction and has built an ark in the Netherlands (for the second time)- approximately similar size as the dimensions of the original Bible ark.

There have been many articles written about Noah’s ark with many speculators on where the ark is currently located with some stating it’s been found in Turkey.

Some people say that those who believe in God need to have physical evidence in order for their faith to be affirmed. But, if their faith is not affirmed without the ark then their faith is not really faith.

This reminds me of the story of Thomas in the book of John in the Bible. All of the disciples had seen Jesus after the resurrection except for Thomas. It was he who stated “Unless I see the nail marks in His hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.”

Thomas is called a man who had little faith. Thomas eventually sees Jesus, puts his fingers/hand in Jesus’ hand and side and then believes. But Jesus says:

Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” John 20:29

If the ark is found it should help to strengthen the faith of the Christian – not establish it.
