Dutchman Builds Noah’s Ark
Dutch building contractor Johan Huibers is close to completing a full-sized replica of the legendary Noah’s Ark in Dordrecht, the Netherlands.
It all began in 1992, when Huibers dreamt of a flood. “I saw the Netherlands disappearing under an enormous mass of water, comparable with the tsunami in Southeast Asia,” he has said. “The next day, I found a book about Noah’s Ark in the local bookshop, and since then, my dream has been to build the ark.”
In 2008 Johan Huibers decided to realize his dream, which he had in 1992, and built Noah’s Ark real size. This Ark would be 10x the content of the smaller replica, which he built earlier. On board of the Ark there will be several biblical theme attractions, exhibitions and activities for all ages.

And here is a video of Mr. Huibers, but it’s entirely in Dutch. However, you should get the basic idea:
When completed, the full-size Noah’s Ark will remain in Dordrecht until the middle of 2012, when Huibers then plans to take his ship around the world, beginning with London in time for the Olympic Games.
Via PZ Myers who suggest Ken Ham needs to put up or shut up, “Ken Ham needs to meet this challenge: I want to see him out there with a nail gun, tacking sticks and boards together with his own money, and then I want him to set sail into the Atlantic and meet Johan Huibers halfway, where they can argue theology.”
