7 Perimeter Fractions of the Ark
Man’s desire is to know,
God’s heart is to reveal,
The truth begins to show
While Zeman tunes the wheel.
Noah’s Ark could be said to be patterned after the Great Pyramid of Giza, only at a much smaller scale of 1:129600. This is equal to 10 seconds in the 360 degrees circle. The cubit value is also smaller, closer to 6 palms or 24 fingers of the common cubit (also known as the Greek cubit) of .45 meter.
Just as the pyramid cubit was a shortening of the royal cubit, the Ark cubit is a shortening of the common cubit. The value is closer to .44391817 meter.
The dimensions of the Ark are 300 cubits x 50 cubits x 30 cubits.
There are approximately 70 cubits in one second, or 700 cubits in 10 seconds.
If you add the lengths of the base of the Ark, 300 + 50 + 300 + 50, it equals 700 cubits.
700 cubits x 129600 would then provide you with a approximation of the equatorial circumference of the earth. The only problem is that Hebrew mathematics were not as precise as the Egyptians and the circumference is over-estimated by about 120 miles according to my figures. This is due to there being slightly less than 70 cubits in a second, but without the invention of fractions having occurred yet a rounding up was required to do the math.
Obviously, Noah chose the rectangular shape of the Ark above a pyramidal shape because of its seaworthiness. But the principles are exactly the same. It is a model of the earth. What is being delivered from the flooding is a facsimile of the earth, but at a much lower scale.
Current Bible science guesstimates that the rooms in the ark were cubical, or 10 x 10 x 10 cubits. An error in translation gave “gopher wood” for “cubicals” or “compartments”. As you may be aware the Hebrew language lacked vowels and only had consonants, so certain words were similar, and the meaning is only determined by the context around it.
If you divide the dimensions of the Ark by 10 on all sides, the number of compartments or cubicals is equal to 450.
This greatly simplifies our understanding of Noah’s Ark. It was not just one large area with all the animals mulling around, but highly ordered as creation itself.
