Now, the Dutch building contractor has nearly completed a life-size model of Noah's ark, which he says will be ready for visitors in May. His current opus follows the dimensions described in Genesis 6:15 -- 300 cubits by 50 cubits by 30 cubits. The new ark's volume is nearly ten times the original's. Despite his attempted precision, there is no standardized interpretation of the size of a cubit. Huiber is equating the biblical measurement to half a meter.

This makes me think of: No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left." - Matthew 24:36-41 (NIV)
Did you watch the video at the bottom of the page? The News reporter attempts to quote Matthew 4:4 but says "Man cannot live by break alone" refering the vending machines on the ark.
