Coincidence? We just finish learning about the Hebrews. A movie called Noah opens in theaters this weekend. Tonight on the news we learn a man in the Netherlands has built a full size replica of Noah's ark. Using the Book of Genesis as his blueprint, Mr. Huibers, a carpenter, constructed a full-sized replica of Noah's Ark on the Marwede River in Dordrecht, just outside Rotterdam. Made from 21 transport barges and 12,000 Swedish pine trees, the vessel is 300 cubits long (around 430 feet). it's too far for a road trip, but you can read more & see a video.
