An Ark of true biblical proportions

The world's first Ark replica that is made to precise biblical specifications is near-completion in Hong Kong, thanks to three brothers and their billions.

The Wall Street Journal explains:
The instructions in the King James version of the Bible call for a gopher wood and pitch vessel that is 300 cubits long, 50 wide and 30 high, with a window, a door and three stories. (By the reckoning of modern scholars, [who?] that comes out to about 450 feet long, 75 feet wide and 45 feet high.)

Mr. Lu, the project's director, says the park isn't promoting religion. "We're promoting meaning."
