Translating to modern measurements, Huibers came up with a vessel that works out to a whopping 427 feet long, 95 feet across and 75 feet high. Perhaps not big enough to fit every species on Earth, two by two, as a described in the Bible, but plenty of space, for instance, for a pair of elephants to dance a tango.Mr. Sterling's opinions on the number of animals able to fit in the ark is something that is commonly encountered in Genesis studies. Many who have looked at the 1.2 million cataloged species of animals on earth and estimation of millions yet to be cataloged have thought it impossible for two of every species to fit onto the ark. However in Genesis 6:19-21 it talks about how God told Noah what he needed to do regarding the land animals. Verse 19 says, "And of every living thing of all flesh you shall bring two of every sort into the ark..." An article on the Answers in Genesis website discusses that the word "sort" or "kind" refers to a representative from each animal group and not specifically each species. They also remind people that, "Within each kind, God placed enormous genetic potential, with all the diversity necessary to repopulate the earth."
