This explains a lot:

Ancient texts reveal that Noah’s ark was built with the help of aliens – and that it was actually a submarine especially made to help him survive the great flood.

Author and biblical scholar Zecharia Sitchin analyzed the original Hebrew version of the Old Testament and other ancient writings. According to those texts, “Noah was advised to construct a boat ‘roofed over and below’ and ‘hermetically sealed with pitch,’” said Sitchin.

“There were to be no decks, no openings, so that ‘the sun shall not see inside.’ The boat was to be a vessel that could turn and tumble.”

The only kind of boat that fits that description, Sitchin said, is a submarine.

And what’s more, he added, the biblical term for “ark” in ancient Hebrew stems from the word “sunken.”

Only a submarine could have withstood the 40 days and nights of such a raging flood, added Sitchin.

“No ordinary surface vessel could have survived the tumultuous waves without being sunk.”

Sitchin also studied ancient texts from Sumer, which is part of Iraq today. In a passage from one of the texts, he said, Noah explains that he survived the flood thanks to the help of superior beings from another planet who helped him build the ark.

Like a modern submarine, the ark had ballast tanks that allowed it to submerge and to surface, Sitchin said. Before the deluge, it took in an oxygen supply and later it surfaced to get more air.

Brad Steiger, renowned UFO investigator, agreed that Noah’s ark was indeed a submarine and that man at that time did not have the expertise to build such a boat, and needed aliens to help.

“One must have advised Noah to construct a water-borne vessel to prevent his death,” said Steiger.

“But Noah would not have known the principles of building such a craft. Being a mere mortal, Noah would not have the ability to construct a submarine. He would have needed extraterrestrial assistance to build his craft.”

It makes a lot of sense, really.  It’s surprising that no one had thought of it before.  Although I’m not sure Noah necessarily would have needed help from space aliens when he had The Almighty on his team.
