We have heard about the replica of the Galleon Andalucia that just landed in the Philippines last October 5 and wll be here until October 9, 2010, basically the last day the vessel will be here. If you don't know galleon vessels has been the avenue why the world was introduce to the Philippines.
Another vessel that amazes me is another replica of the most historical vessel way way before Christ. This has been one of the symbol of Christianity believing that the world was once flooded to exterminate sin. In Schagen, Netherlands, the doors of the Noah's ark has been opened once again after 4,000 years. The Ark draws curious pilgrims and townsfolk to behold the wonder. This replica was built by Dutch contractors, Johan Huibers. as a testament of his faith. This was built to show how massive the Ark was and how many animals could have been housed for a long time. It was actually built on a smaller scale so it would travel around Europe, navigating the canals, bridges and rivers en route. Its size is 1/2 the length and 1/3 the width of the Biblical dimensions. The Ark was made of cedar and pine. Huiber, built this replica to renew Christianity in Netherlands, where church going has fallen dramatically in the past 50 years. The replica has life-sized models of animals inside where viewers can see the actuality of how they are positioned inside the Ark at the time of Noah.

The following pictures are the replica of Noah's Ark.
With Johan Huibers aim to renew Christianity in his country, I also wish that with this it will also awakens our faith and thank God for without this ark were also not here and will not enjoy the things that we have now. Keep the faith!
