# Disproving the Ark.

There’s the obvious problem of the animals not being able to fit, but what about the rain?

A quick Google search yields that the average radius of the Earth is

6378 km. The Bible never says how deep the flood was, but some Christian

sources say it’s 3 kilometers, so the radius of the earth including the

water would be 6381 km.

The volume of a sphere is 4πr^{3}/3. That means that the volume of the earth is about 1,086,781,292,542 cubic kilometers.

The volume of the Earth including the flood water is 3,264,946,715,365 km^{3}

by the same formula. As shown by a simple subtraction, the volume of

the water itself must have been about 2,178,165,422,823 cubic km. That’s

100 billion cubic kilometers of water pouring down on the earth each

day, because we can only divide by 20 to account for the time the water

took to disappear.

4 billion cubic km every hour.

75 million cubic km of water every minute.

**1.26 million cubic km of water every second.**

If you’re not stunned by that number, keep reading:

The equation for how far an object falls after release:

S = VoT + (1/2)gT^{2}

S is distance traveled

Vo is the original velocity (in this case, 0)

g is 9.8 m/s^{2}.

T is time in seconds.

So that works out to:

S = 0(1) + (1/2)(9.8)(1^{2})

= 4.9 meters, or .0049 km.

The surface area of the Earth is 510,072,000 km^{2}. For the

water to fit, 510 million must be greater than 1,260,000 cubic km

divided by .0049 cubic km, which is 257 million. 257 million divided by

510 million gives us how much water there would be compared to the air.

There would be more water than air pouring down every second,

flooding the ark and rendering everyone on it unable to breathe. In

addition, the water would be pouring down so hard that it would push the

boat completely under. This would be happening constantly for 20 days.

If the story were true, that may have been a slight problem for Noah and the animals.

+1+1God is a fallacy created by man in his own image. Sexist, misogynistic, malicious, malevolent, racist, and violent.

+1+2The ice cores in the Arctic show no signs of any global flood as far back as 100,000 years.

There is not evidence on the ocean floor or in the coral reef beds around the globe.

There is not evidence of the flood in any country artifacts as in Egypt to prove water was there

There is no record of the flood in China either
