Nonsense of Noah


4.7. Sea-Worthiness of the Ark
THE POINT!
Noah did not have the know-how or the technology to build a sea worthy ship the size of the Ark.


Exceeds size of any wooden hulled boat ever.

HMS _Victoria_, the last full-rigged 1st rate ship of the line to serve as flag of the Channel Fleet, built in 1859, was 250 feet long on the gundeck. And she had a steel frame because the British Royal Navy had found that building wooden ships much bigger than 225 feet long was not a good idea because they tended to straddle or to hog on being launched.



Joints small enough to be sealed with pitch are difficult to make

Did Noah let the wood season?
If not, the initially well fitted joints would shrink as the wood dried creating cracks leading to leaks.



Where did Noah get the "pitch" that God commanded him to use, both inside and out?
Here are three definitions of pitch:
a. Any of various thick, dark, sticky substances obtained from the distillation residue of coal tar, wood tar, or petroleum and used for waterproofing, roofing, caulking, and paving.
b. Any of various natural bitumens, such as mineral pitch or asphalt.
c. A resin derived from the sap of various coniferous trees, as the pines.

Noah could not have used any petroleum products since petroleum had not been discovered yet.
Noah had to use a resin derived from the sap of various coniferous trees.

Pitch from trees has a VERY high viscosity.
In an experiment, The Pitch Drop Experiment performed at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia by Profesor Parnell, only 8 drops of pitch have fallen from an observed tree in 64 years.

Yet we are to believe that hunter-gatherer Noah, knew more about ship building than did the British Navy some 4000 years later.
