he was never in the Ark unless you're talking about the other Ark, the one he had built to store the Ten Commandments, but that was like a chest thingy and I dont think he ever crawled in that lol

Though that would be an incredible place for hide and seek. Who would think to look there? And if the did, well, we've all seen Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Even with Noah, most people would answer incorrectly, as he took seven of every clean animal. The real question is, how did he limit the insects? And if there were termites on board, how much of the ship did they eat in the year they were afloat?

Moses was the one who freed the slaves from Egypt, Noah was the one who built the ark. So basically Moses took 0 animals on the ark because he

didnt build the ark!!! :rolleyes:

Yeah, Noah built the ARK not MOSES.. so the answer is 0 and the riddler should be reminded that it is Noah who built the ark

How many fish did Noah catch while he was on the ark?

Two, because that's all the worms he had...

I don't know. It seems like the best answer is zero because nobody brought any animal on "the arc." it's just a story in a book.

Moses could have made an imaginary ark and stored imaginary animals because he was so bored...

noah took onto the ark:

Genesis 7: 2, where God tells Noah: 'Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of the beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female'

so he either took 7 males and 7 females of the clean ones, or just seven in total, depending on how you understand the sentence. the idea of two by two is only relevant to unclean animals (like pigs, camels, eels, snails etc etc).

gotta love QI :D

40 Days and 40 Nights was Moses getting the tablets, not the ark. The ark was about 150 days afloat.

And FitzKaos, you're right. He took seven of every clean animal, male and female (14)

and 2 of every unclean, male and female (2)

I've just read through it again. Very interesting.

Genesis 7.10.

And it came to pass after seven days that the waters of the flood were on the earth

11.

In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened

12.

And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights

...

17.

And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift above the earth.

18.

And the waters prevailed and were increased greatly on the earth.....

...

.24

And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.

...

Genesis 8.4.

And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.

So the ark was only afloat between days 40 and 150.
