Noah's Ark

The Ark built by Noah is specified in the following verses:



Scripture: Genesis 6 and 7

6:14 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.

 6:15 And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.

 6:16 A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.

7:20 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.

If the Ark is likened to a loaf of bread, one "slice" of Ark looks like this:

  • Noah's Ark is built "piece-by piece" using the data from the Creation Function.
  • The Ark had a load capacity of 225,000 cubital masses, or "cubes".
  • The Ark represents 365 loads of the 616 particles of the 6-Day active Creation
  • Each of the 365 loads represents one of of current port-Flood days.
  • A full Ark has the same attributes as those of a Lead 208 atom, the largest stable naturally occuring atom in existence.
  • The Flood drying dates given in Genesis 8 confirms the Creation Function's validity numerically.


We are going to talk about the Ark in a way that no one else has: We are going to view it purely as a numerical construct using only the data that we obtained from the Creation Function. Why do it this way? Because since the Ark was built before the Flood, its construction was limited to the materials on hand and subject to the physical laws of that period. We know that there was no rainbow before the Flood, even though there was "a mist from the ground" to water the Earth. If there are water droplets in the air, a rainbow should have formed when the Great Light shone through. Therefore, the position that this work takes is that the physical laws that existed before the Flood are much different than those of today. That is to say that the Flood itself altered physics as we know it.

So it should be possible to build the Ark strictly from the ROOT "particles" given by the Creation Function. The Creation Function particles ROOT particles form the Creation Spiral. We begin by deciding where on the Creation Spiral to begin Ark construction.

Where to start?

Since the Ark is to be 300 cubits long, lets begin Ark construction at ROOT=300, in the Daytime of the 6th Day. Do not worry about converting cubits. The Bible gives us a relative measure because, again, the laws of physics are going to change because of the Flood. We will always use the relative measure. The ROOT=300 point will be where the lower right corner of the Ark will be. If you think of the completed Ark as a loaf of bread, we will be building one "slice", or frame with the frame being 1 cubit thick.

Ark Waterline at 15 cubits:

We turn to the Word of God and the Flood story to get additional information about the Ark: Genesis 7:20 above says that the water rose to 15 cubits above the highest mountain. And Gen. 7:18 says that the ark "went upon the face of the waters". Therefore, the waterline of the ark was at 15 cubits, which is halfway up the side of the 30 cubit high Ark. Since the Ark is to be 50 cubits wide, we will have to count +50 ROOT particles from ROOT=300 to get to the left lower corner of the frame at ROOT=350 and up the left side of the frame +15 ROOT particles to get to the waterline at ROOT=365. Here at ROOT =365 is where we will get the wood for the Ark.

Ark uses the ROOT=616 from the Creation Function for wood:

If you refer to the Creation Function Table you see that the end of Day 6 is at ROOT=616. This means that Noah had 616 particles to work with in Creation with which to build. Since we are sitting at ROOT=365, we can draw upon 616-365 = 252 (including the 365 itself) particles to build one Ark frame. The ark frame must be 30 cubits tall, 50 cubits wide, and have 3 levels inside. If you continue on with Ark construction you need to add the pitch. We will use ROOT 364 to ROOT 200 for 164 pitch particles. This will leave 200 cargo-animal particles and 8 people-particles to go into this ark frame, but for now, we focus upon the ark itself. Count the number of white squares immediately around the brown squares in Figure 1 below.

Ark woodframe

Figure 1. If you count the number of brown squares in the diagram above you will identify exactly 252 squares representing the 252 cubital elements obtained from ROOT 616 to ROOT 365. The ROOT 365 point is located where the 2nd floor meets the left wall (At Post-Flood Day 62).If you count the number of white cubes immediately around the Ark (the border), you will get 164. The 252 and 164 numbers will be used later on this page.

The 616 data is also confirmed volumetrically by Archimede's Principle:

The Ark was to be this size: 30 cubits X 50 cubits X 300 cubits: This gives a total volume of 450,000 cubits^3. Since the Ark waterline is at ROOT = 365, halfway up the side of the Ark, this means that the Ark's mass cannot be more than 225,000 cubital masses. In other words, by Archimede's Principle, the Ark can only be half-full of ROOT particles in order for the waterline to be at 15 cubits. This insures that the Ark does not run aground on the highest mountain. So let's check our math to see if this adds up. If the total mass of the Ark must be less than 225,000 cubital masses, and we have 616 ROOT particles total to 1) make one Ark frame, and 2) load the Ark, then 225,000/616 tells us how many frames we can build. On the calulator we divide 225,000 by 616 and we get 365. This means that the Ark represents 365 loads of 616, or in other words, 365 loads of Creation since the active portion of Creation was 6 full days.


Comparing the Full Ark to Lead-208 Atom

If we look at one-half of the Ark frame, we obtain an interesting construct:.

One half full ark

Figure 2. Study of the Left Half of the Ark frame.

Lead 208 is the largest, stable, naturally-produced atom known to exist. So if we thought of the Ark as being large enough to hold Creation, and if we thought of the Ark as a complete, stable copy of the Creation, wouldn't it make sense for the Ark to be an atom-by-atom copy of the Creation?

Facts about Lead 208:

  • Protons: 82 (Note: Each Proton is made of 3 quarks: 2 ups and 1 down)
  • Neutrons: 126 (Note: Each Neutron is made of 3 quarks: 1 up and 2 downs)
  • Up quarks: 290
  • Down quarks: 334

Facts about Figure 2 (Representing 208 cargo particles including Noah and Family):

  • Red squares: 82 (Pitch)
  • Brown Squares: 126 (Wood)
  • Yellow Squares: 290 (Upper levels contents)
  • Green Squares: 334 (Lower level contents)

Also, using the 252 logs and 164 pitch information mentioned earlier and applying them to half-frame study:

  • 252 + 82 = 334
  • 164 + 126 = 290
  • These obscure sums are the basis of the Ark Nuclear Model.

Compare God's Drying Wind with Creation Function

Using the Jewish Calendar as a guide along with ours, the Flood began on Feb 17th (Gen. 7:11). The next date mentioned was July 17th (Gen. 8:4), 150 days later as the Flood persisted. The next date mentioned was Oct. 1st., giving us an additional 13+30+30 = 73 Days as God was drying up the water. Refer to the Creation Function Table. If Noah were to unload particle 299 to particle 227, (right at the door at ROOT = 300) that woud be to unload 73 particles. This is also an unloading to the very beginning of DAY 6 according to the Creation Function Table below:

Creation Function Table

Figure 3 The Creation Function is also verified by the Flood Drying Process describe in Genesis 8. The first drying was 73 days, (the same number as the number of particles loaded on the Ark from the Door at ROOT = 299 to ROOT = 227) in other words the remainder of Day 6. The second drying was 89 days, (the same number of particles loaded from the Day portion of Day 5, ROOT 226 to ROOT 138). The third drying was 56 days (the particles ROOT 137 thru 82 represent 56 particles of the remainder of Day 5.

Continuing the story from above, the next date mentioned was Jan. 1st.. This is 30+30+30 = 90 Days. Refer to the Creation Function Table. To unload ROOT 226 to ROOT 138, is to unload 89 particles.

The next and final date mentioned was Feb 27th, the day God said it was safe to come out. Therefore, it was not a drying day. Then you have 30+26 = 56 days. And to unload ROOT 137 to ROOT 82 is to unload 56 particles.
