Noah had his ark, to save himself and his family, from the great flood, and to save the animals to build the newย world with.

If you had to build that ark for a new world, but you could only take 5 animals, which would you pick?

1.Sheep to make wool for clothing

2.Pigs.ย  I can’t imagine a world without bacon. ๐Ÿ™‚

3.Horses – for transportation to help us get around this new world

4.Dogs – Man’s best friend, also to help guard our homes.

5.Platypuses – they are just so much fun to look at, and we need at least one strange critter around to remind us that life doesn’t always make sense.

Our faith is like Noah’s ark.ย  It keeps us safe, floating above the floods of life that we could easily drown us.

If you were to build your ark of faith which 5 passages from the Bibleย would you choose as your planks?ย  Feel free to choose less, orย than 5,ย this isn’t a homework assignment.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Discuss the reason why you pickedย them for as many as you have time for.

The planks for my science based ark ๐Ÿ™‚

1.Evolution – life is continually changing.ย  With out changeย our world, if it came into existence at all, would have remained a fiery, bubbling cauldron, continually bombarded by objects from outer space.

2. Natural Selection – the organisms that adapt best to changes in the environment are the ones that survive, and thrive.ย  As this applies to human society,ย as our brains evolve so willย the societies we build.

3.Decay – this is the force in nature that allows changes.ย  If nothing decayed than the Universe would never change, or probably even have come into existence.

4.Newton’s third law – For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.ย  This gives me hope that someday I mayย learn toย understand women.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

5. Whatever force in nature results in laughter, muddle puddles, and whip cream pies.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Genesis 6:13-18

13And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

ย 14Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.

ย 15And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.

ย 16A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.

ย 17And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.

ย 18But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons’ wives with thee.
