SunShip: The Arc That Makes the Flood Possible Tens of centuries ago, trees of enormous scale were cut, trimmed, skinned of their bark, and bound together using a particularly robust fibrous rope for the construction of rafts that anticipated the crossing of the great raging seas. Although strong, this rope was not often used near the sea; salt broke down its fiber, sea salt ate away its strength. The trees were bound in such a way that the rolling motion of the sea dug the rope into the soft wood of the trees; the particular knot and binding allowed the push and pull of the sea to work the rope into deep grooves in the wood. In time, as the wood swelled […]
