What causes arthritis?

I used this joke and some other gems for reading practise in my class of English. Great enthusiasm! Remark of the day: "How come I can understand this in one go?"

Well, only from the unclean animals, obviously.  The clean animals don't poop, because they're ... you know.

To add to all this the bible says that Noah took seven of each "clean" animal (some say fourteen) and two of each "unclean" animal. That's a lot of poop.

It was a miracle.

Any mechanical or structural engineer worth his salt would tell you that a wooden ship of the dimensions specified in the bible would be a nightmare for one simple reason: strength of materials.  WOOD FLEXES, boys and girls ... and there is a reason why ships that size have THICK METAL HULLS!

Per usual, you can't tell the creationists that.

The Noah story, preposterous as it as, was a fun story to teach to my Sunday school classes. We got all dressed up as different animals and walked up a ramp. 

The skeptoid article surely puts things into perspective. 

137 meters long = 449.47 feet i.e. 44 +- stories of a building

23 meters wide = 75.45 feet wide ie. 7 + stories of a building

14 meters high = 45.9 feet high ie. 4 + stories of a building. 

I think it was in Dunning's piece that a respondent said it wasn't made of wood, it might have been made of reeds. I suppose in the way of Kon Tiki. Well, that means 449'x 75' x 45' of reeds. Ya! Likely.

Exactly -- the square-cube law makes massive structures unintuitively fragile. A wooden ship the purported size of Noah's Ark would flex and leak.

(Not to mention, how would they clean out all the poop?)

Brian Dunning points out in his Skeptoid article that if divine intervention somehow resulted in a workable, seaworthy ship, "why have the entire flood at all, when divine intervention could have simply struck down the evil humans"?

Even if he had used a decacubit instead of a cubit, it still wouldn't have held all the animals and their food.  And, of course, it would have collapsed under it's own weight long before it was finished.
