We recently wrote about Another Ark Replica — And It Sails!, in which we reported:
A massive replica of Noah’s ark could travel from the Netherlands to Brazil this year. The ark, which was created by Dutch carpenter Johan Huibers, will stop at several port cities in Brazil and make four stops along the coast of the U.S., according to the Ark of Noah Foundation, which is working to raise funds for the ark’s journey.
This is the website of the Dutch Ark: Die Arche Noah. It’s not in English, but they have a lot of pictures.
We have some follow-up news today, and it’s rather grim. Here is one excerpt, with bold font added by us, from Noah’s Ark’ Crashes With Coast Guard Ship in Oslo Harbor, which appears in the New York Times. They don’t have a comments feature. We’re told:
STOCKHOLM — Norwegian officials say a wooden exhibition ship built as a representation of Noah’s Ark has crashed with a Coast Guard vessel in the Oslo harbor, damaging both ships. Coast Guard spokesman Rune Svartsund said the wooden ship was being towed into the harbor Friday morning when it ran into the “Nornen” patrol vessel, which was moored at a quay. Svartsund said no one was injured but both ships were damaged.
An unfortunate accident — or an omen? The brief article doesn’t speculate, but in a designed universe, everything has a purpose. What does this incident mean? Tell us what you think, dear reader.
