in a post flood environment? Surely the ark was broken up for housing and the remains rotted away eons ago. Surely.
Why break it up? Why not just live in it? As long as it landed in a good spot...
I agree it would've rotted and disintegrated...unless it was preserved somehow. Maybe they sealed it really good. Maybe it became encased in ice for
a long time. Maybe its a Christmas morning miracle, who knows...
Another consideration would be that they saw the ark as being too important to break apart. They could always come back and visit and tell their
children and grandchildren how God loved them so much that he saved them. Nevermind Joe the carpenter who worked his ass off for 15 years to build
this thing. He doesn't get so much as a mention.
Don't try to tell me that attention whore Noah built it... He only showed up at the end for the "photo op" moment to pound in the final nail,
which was made of gold I heard... Oh yeah, Noah was all about the bling bling and wild parties with rap stars of the era. I heard once he got so drunk
he passed out in his tent with his robe open for passerby to gawk, including his son. His other son thankfully covered him up. And when Noah woke up
around noon the next day, rubbing his eyes and reeking of booze to face the community after his drunken rampage the night before, he heard about what
happened, and instead of apologizing for his actions, he made it all about his sons, and how they reacted, saying the son who ran away traumatized to
tell his brother somehow did something wrong, and placed heaps of honor onto the son who walked into the tent backwards and covered him up without
viewing his nakedness... That first son had to live in shake forever after because of his fathers twisting of the truth. So I do not for one minute
believe that Noah built that ark... Sure, he mighta helped a little in his own way, but from a strictly supervisory position...
Nah I'm just kidding, I'm sure he was a great guy.
