  • Ararat Mountain
    324 words
    According to the Bible, Noah's Ark is the largest sea going vessel known before the 20th century. It's dimensions were at least 450 feet long, 75 feet wide, 45 feet high with three interior decks, and had a window constructed around the top. The proportions of the ark are amazingly similar to the large ocean liners of today. The Bible also says the boat came to rest on 'the mountains if Ararat', but it doesn't name a specific peak. It is also kind of weird because after Noah and his family get o...

    A Gap in Time: Fact or Theory A Logical Explanation I find the statement made by the scientist who claimed that the pyramids were built back in 10,500 B.C. very difficult to believe. He claimed that they were built that long ago, but he and others believe that the first civilization didnt come about until around 3,500 B.C. I have researched and found a continuous chronological order of events which is much more believable than A 7,000 Year Gap in time. Since everything in the Bible has been prov...

  • Gilgamesh And Noah
    1,112 words
    Gilgamesh vs. Noah By It is said that life is 10% what you make it and 90% how you take it. It is not the circumstances of life that determine a person's character. Rather, it is the way a character responds to those circumstances that provides a display of who he is. 'From the Epic of Gilgamesh', as translated by N.K. Sandals, and 'Noah and the Flood' from the Book of Genesis, both Gilgamesh and Noah face similar circumstances, but don't always respond to them the same way. Accepting immortalit...

    Many of the same ancient stories can be found in different cultures. Each story differs in a small way, but the general idea remains synonymous. One story that is paralleled in several cultures is the legend of a great flood. The epic of Gilgamesh resembles the Bible's story of Noah's Ark, but specific details differ in several aspects. The story of Gilgamesh originates from twelve fire-hardened, mud tablets, written in cuneiform, in the Mesopotamian culture from around 2500 B.C.E. It has been p...
