Professional, peer-reviewed papers about Noah’s ark from the perspective of a recent creation and the global Flood within a biblical framework.
The deluge poems of Mesopotamia are soaked in a moral and theological framework that is not just different from Genesis but utterly hostile to it.
Inerrancy and Biblical Authority: How and Why Old-Earth Inerrantists Are Unintentionally Undermining Inerrancy
The old-earth signers of the CSBInerrancy unintentionally violated their own principles of interpretation and unintentionally undermined the inerrancy and the authority of Scripture.
Genesis 8:5–13 reveals the character of Noah and delimits the time of the water’s becoming powerful to between 16 and 23 days after the Flood began.
To the Ark, and Back Again? Using the Marsupial Fossil Record to Investigate the Post-Flood Boundary
There is no debate as contentious as the post-Flood boundary issue within creation science.
The biblical account of Noah’s Flood provides an update to modern microbial biogeography and modern creation apologetics.
While attempting to elucidate the general chronological profile of the events of the first week, we hope to answer two specific significant questions.
Belief that the Flood lasted 371 days is common among recent creationists, but there are other possibilities.
There are at least three problems with Hugh Ross’ local flood model which render it physically impossible. This is in addition to numerous biblical issues.
An Initial Estimation of the Numbers and Identification of Extant Non-Snake/Non-Amphisbaenian Lizard Kinds: Order Squamata
This paper is meant to lay creation groundwork for lizard systematics with the goal of estimating the number of baramins brought on the Ark.
When added to previously determined kinds of extant anurans, caudates, and gymnophionans, a total of 248 amphibian kinds may have been brought on board the Ark.
The purpose of this paper is to use all available information in order to make an initial estimate of the identification and numbers of extant Lepidosaur kinds, except for the “lizards.”
Biosystematics is in great flux today because of the plethora of genetic research continually shedding light on organism relationships.
This paper will focus on identifying extant bird kinds.
An Initial Estimate Toward Identifying and Numbering Amphibian Kinds within the Orders Caudata and Gymnophiona
An initial attempt to count and identify biblical kinds in amphibian orders Caudata and Gymnophiona were estimated using current information and several key assumptions and guidelines.
Information on the class Mammalia was evaluated in an attempt to get a realistic estimate of what mammalian kinds would have been represented on the Ark.
This research effort provides information necessary for the best possible reconstruction of the animal kinds preserved on the Ark for the Ark Encounter.
This paper will show that Christian professor Daniel Brannan’s arguments are based on faulty premises regarding Adam’s constitutional nature, the nature of Adam’s perfection and Adam’s free choice.
Noah’s Ark on Answers Research Journal
Many critical scholars have challenged the existence of Noah’s ark. Opponents to the historicity of the ark as described in the book of Genesis often object because of their evolutionary presuppositions as well as basic misconceptions about the biblical kind (as opposed to modern-day species). Some biblical scholars claim that Noah’s ark was either myth, allegorical moral tale, or historical but much smaller in scale because it was based on a local Mesopotamian or Black Sea flood.
The aim of these research papers in Answers Research Journal (ARJ) is to consider Noah’s ark from the perspective of a recent creation and subsequent global deluge within a biblical framework. These professional, peer-reviewed papers address issues related to Noah’s ark and highlight how they relate to pre-flood and post-flood biblical history as well as other disciplines, like zoology, physics, structural engineering, etc. Our journal considers Noah’s ark in light of the global Flood, biblical scholarship, baraminology, genetics, the inerrancy of the Bible, other flood legends, and more.
The primary account of Noah’s ark and the worldwide Flood is found in the Bible in Genesis 6–9. In that passage, we learn that Noah was to build an ark to save his family and representatives of every air-breathing, terrestrial-based animal from the coming flood, which God was going to send because of man’s great wickedness (Genesis 6:12–22). God gave Noah instructions on how to build the ark, including its size and layout, how to provision it, and how he would bring the animals to Noah.
The existence of Noah and the ark he built is verified throughout the Old and New Testaments. The original Hebrew and Greek biblical texts assume the reality of Noah by incorporating him (and his family) into the authors’ historical narratives and theological arguments. ARJ authors also consider non-biblical considerations (e.g., engineering studies on the ark’s seaworthiness, animal and cargo space requirements, etc.) that argue for the plausibility of Noah’s ark.
