Ten years? With half a brain it doesn't take ten minutes to do a "feasibility study" of the ark.

To steal a quote from RD and modifying it a bit, "Science gives you the ability to replace organs, religion...." you know the rest. :)

Er... "religion flies your organs into buildings"? ^_^ Steve

Religion cut out your organs and gives them to the Sun God, Science cuts out your organs and gives you new improved ones

This 2 part series sums it up pretty well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rqUsC2KsiI

Basically:

  • a good record of accurate prophecies in a religions text, not a few accurate ones in a midst of failed ones.

  • statistically significant increase in so called miracle recoveries of diseases in followers of a certain religion, including missing limbs and so on, if the religion says that they should happen

  • A good solid record of answered prayers for followers of that religion

  • Scientific knowledge in the book that was not known at the time - not the vague bullshit they say is in the Koran, but actual solid science, a description of relativity, the speed of light, evolution or the big bang or something

  • A direct manifestation of a god, not hearing voices in your head but actual appearances to many people

  • aliens who have the exact same religion

    I have to agree with other commenters here who can't agree with this based on its cost. The idea behind it is great, but the costs are far too exclusive.

    Comment 3 by Tryphon Tournesol :

    I'll first apologise for being Dutch, we've better export products you know... Any biologists in the house who could calculate the mass/volume of every pair of animals that was supposed to be carried? Me thinks that even the insects of South America alone could sink that piece of crap. But of course they don't count, as the bible inventing goat lovers of the desert never heard of that place (so much for revelation).

    edit, and as if it not enough that Huibers is stealing oxygen from real people merely for existing, a lot of trees were cut for that :(

    There are 5 million species alive roughly today I think. Even if they were all insect size, it would be impossible to keep them all seperate in a boat like that. And that's assuming we don't account for extinct creatures which were presumably on the ark.
