About

Noah’s Ark: Beyond Flannelgraph is based on the presentations, writings and research of Gospel preacher and Creation speaker, Tony Breeden.

A lot of people have serious reservations as to whether the Ark Noah built was big enough to hold all of the animals God sent him to save from the world-wide Flood. This is largely the fault of an all-too-common image of a cute, little bathtub toyArk over-stuffed with adorable animals, often with a pair of giraffes sticking out of the top. This well-intended Sunday School image stays with us as adults. The Bible gives a much different picture.

For some people, the historical Ark and a worldwide Flood are stumbling blocks to accepting the Gospel. They have questions that have never been answered by the church; so their questions have been answered by those who dismiss the Bible as moralizing prescientific myth rather than as God’s revealed Word.

This site will give you reasonable answers to some of those questions.

    How did the animals from Australia get there? Likewise, those from North and South America.

    Poem I had written in honor to Noah from my work in progress book called “Poems From the Bible” By: Curt A Rivard Sr

    The Covenant of the Rainbow

    Tolling for days, tolling for weeks tolling for hundreds of years
    Working his fingers to their bones he’s crafting an ark out of gopher wood
    He tried ever so hard to tell and be a teacher
    A choosing one from God he spoke as if he was a preacher
    No one heeded to his warning and Noah cried and prayed that they all would
    It’s too late now and he’s wishing that they all were godly good
    He’s now getting ready to sail on an ocean full of angel tears
    He’s not afraid he’s content in the ark and he has no fears
    Two by two they came from all the creepeth corners of the earth
    He’s so happy that he has his wife and wives for his three sons from birth
    For Forty days and forty nights the angels wept from heaven
    And down on earth every living thing’s nostril was begging
    The master didn’t really want to take their breathing air
    It had to be done because he had a plan and he did care
    It was a beautiful night when the dove with an olive leaf took to fight
    Bearing a gift showing Noah he was always right
    And dry land isn’t too far from his sight
    After enduring a test of faith and with no despise
    He was told and given a promise
    And in return for his believing he had a rainbow put in his eyes.

      Don’t you mean “toiling, toiling….” ?
      I keep on thinking of a bell. Which in a way, Noah was (as a preacher). But I’m sure that’s not what you meant, right?

    Which deck did noah and his family stay on?

  5. Mike says:

    Are we to believe that thousands of people watched a pair of animals out of each species came onboard a massive vessel like the Ark and no one except Noah and his family who had enough faith to go along? Personally, if that was me witnessing a miracle of such grand proportions, I would have raced Noah and his family to the Ark! What happened to the rest of the animals? Did God drown them? Did Noah choose which pairs to take along with him? I know, God has a plan for everything! Such fictitious story from a book of fictions deserves an award that has not been created yet! I am totally envious of the authors of the gospel. Tower of the babble, Adam and eve, The serpent, tree of the knowledge? Not even the creator of the Star Wars could come up with such a saga. Congratulations to all the people who were behind the undertaking of such a massive endeavor! They have managed to pull a wool on the eyes of most humanity for over 2000 years!

      Why is this level of unbelief so unbelievable to you? Even today many people reject the resurrection of Christ as a fiction despite ample evidence for the extreme probability of this historical event.
      When Paul recounts the Gospel, he notes that the post-resurrection Christ was seen by many witnesses, many of whom were still alive to tell the tale. Such a dare to check his story hardly seems indicative of a fictional account. Check out the Everlasting Gospel section of this site, where I list resurrection evidences: https://siriusknotts.wordpress.com/the-everlasting-gospel/ After you check these out, ask yourself: After the lengths people go to reject these evidences, do you reeeeeeally suppose you would have gone running to the Ark?

      The sick people of that time, people whose blood line had been poisoned from breeding with fallen angels, which created the nephalim, or giants of that time had also had sexual relations with animals, and had actually bred with them and ruined the animals blood line, so God told Noah to build an arc, he did. You have to understand, at that time, there had never been rain, no one had ever seen it. nSo they scoffed at Noah and ate drank, partied had orgies and told noah, the scriptures he was reading were ficticious much like you are saying. The bible is true, all of it. It takes faith to believe in the supernatural, but I serve a supernatural God.

      • Tony Breeden says:

        The Bible says that man’s wickedness and violence were the cause of the Flood. The Nephilim are mentioned in the Bible BUT they are never mentioned as a cause for the Flood

        Also the Bible never says that it hadn’t rained up to that point. Some people have inferred this from the fact that a mistake watered the ground in the Garden of Eden but the Bible never says that it never rained until the Flood. I should probably make a fuller post about this in the future.

    What do the animals eat? If some animals depend on eating other animals, all would be gone within days! Some Christians said they all became vegetarians under God’s power because they were supposed to be vegetarians in the beginning before Adam sinned, but read carefully at Genesis 1:24 – And God said on the “6th Day of Creation”, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds—”livestock” and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds.” And it was so. – So how do the carnivorous animals eat livestock/animals in the ark? What is livestock – see Exodus 9:6 And the next day the Lord did this thing. All the livestock of the Egyptians died, but not one of the livestock of the people of Israel died. How can I believe when there’s even just one unbelievable fact (as there are plenty!)?

    Tony… you are such a great believer. I appreciate it. I am not a believer. So. I hope you have not seen jesus… I also didn’t see him. Then what is the difference between you and me?? You should be living greater than Bill gates and i should be begging in front of church. Why is it not happening???

    Lets see…

    “The World Factbook gives the population as 7,095,217,980 (July 2013 est.) and the distribution of religions as Christian 31.50% (of which Roman Catholic 16.85%, Protestant 6.15%, Orthodox 3.96%, Anglican 1.26%), Muslim 22.74%, Hindu 13.8%, Buddhist 6.77%, Sikh 0.35%, Jewish 0.22%, Baha’i 0.11%, other religions 10.95%, …”

    If any god of any above religions exists!! The remaining people must already be dead or something.. right!! But most of them lives a good life..

    lets see that 69.50% people in the world dont believe in Jesus. But most of them still living happily and hopefully and better than you….

    • Tony Breeden says:

      I respectfully remind you that, despite the claims of some televangelists, God doesn’t promise us we’ll be happier or wealthier than someone who isn’t a believer, so I have no reason to expect this.
