    Was Noah's Ark ROUND? 3,700-year-old clay tablet reveals giant boat was made out of reeds and bitumen
    • Dr Irving Finkel has translated cuneiform text on an 3,700-old clay tablet
    • The ancient script details the Mesopotamian story of Noah's Ark
    • The text also contains instructions on how to build an ark to escape a flood
    • But its describes the craft as being a round 220-ft diameter coracle
    • The design is very different to the popular imagining of a traditional ship

    Makes sense. Id read a story years ago that had it more like a box, not boat shaped, but round is a much better design proof being that it is still used.
    If you like your congress crittets you can keep them. If you don't, you know what to do.
