Ark of descent

Recently the UK paper The Guardian posted an article stating – without a shred of skepticism – that Noah’s Ark may have been round.

Sigh. OK, fine. But it gets better.

The Institute for Creation Research – given just their name, you might guess they haven’t found a scientific fact they couldn’t spin, fold, or mutilate… and you’d be right – claims the article is wrong.


Because a round ark makes no sense.



There goes my irony gland again. Luckily it grows back quickly, because in this line of work I seem to need it a lot.
