A new tablet from Babylon reveals instructions on how to build a round boat. Was it the blueprint for Noah's Ark?

A new babylonian tablet surfaced revealing instructions on how to build a round boat. According to British museum expert Irving Finkel the ark never existed, but a new found tablet that he decoded revealed instructions to build a round boat. This tablet is 3,700 years old. The Babylonians were apparently able to build a huge carrier boat that was circular. The size was 3,600 square meters. The tablet is far older than the ark is believed to be old.

A British TV team will actually try to build that round ark based on the new found instructions according to the Guardian. The new Noah movie with Russell Crowe might need to be edited as the movie still shows a pointy ark.

The news about the circular ark instructions are actually not new. The finder of the tablet already tried to get attention for in 2010. Now 4 years later he finally got quite a bit of attention and even a documentary in the works. 

Watch below the Noah trailer.
