Again... "What is your definition of verifiable?"

Is Wiki a good start? To be honest, Doctor, in all my religious schooling I never once read the bible in it's entirety. Something happened around my early teachings, I'd say pre-school that changed me forever and exploited the hypocrisy of the church and religion altogether... I found out dogs can't go to heaven. I mean really?! My dog was my best friend and the church in the guise of god sent my best friend to hell. Bastardos!

Now, raise your hand if you thought I was going to say I was inappropriately handled by a member of the church in authority? Man, I only took one year of physiology, lol. My favorite class was creative writing, btw.

Here's your "verifiable" source...

Ark: Genesis 6–9[edit]
The Hebrew word for the ark, teba, occurs twice in the Bible, in the flood narrative and in the Book of Exodus, where it refers to the basket in which Jochebed places the infant Moses. (The word for the ark of the covenant[12] is quite different.) In both cases teba has a connection with salvation from waters.[13]:21

Noah is warned of the coming flood and told to construct the ark. God spells out to Noah the dimensions of the vessel: 300 cubits in length, 50 cubits in width and 30 cubits in height (450 × 75 × 45 ft or 137 × 22.9 × 13.7 m).[14][15] It had three internal divisions (which are not actually called "decks", although presumably this is what is intended), a door in the side, and a tsohar, which may be either a roof or a skylight.[16]

It is made of "gopher" wood, a word which appears nowhere else in the Bible, and is divided into qinnim, a word which always refers to birds' nests elsewhere, leading some scholars[who?] to emend this to qanim (reeds), the material used for the boat of Atrahasis, the Babylonian flood-hero. God instructs Noah to kapar (smear) the ark with koper (pitch): in Hebrew the first of these words is a verb formed from the second and, like "gopher", it is a word found nowhere else in the Bible.

Noah is instructed to take on board his wife, his three sons, and his sons' wives. He is also to take two of every living thing, and seven pairs of every clean creature and of every bird, together with sufficient food.
