A life-size replica of a penguin stands outside a full scale replica of Noah's Ark which has opened its doors in Doredrecth, Netherlands, Monday Dec. 10, 2012, after receiving permission to host up to 3,000 visitors per day. Stormy weather could do nothing to dampen the good mood of its creator, Dutchman Johan Huibers: in fact, the rain was appropriate. For those who don't know or remember the Biblical story, God ordered Noah to build a boat massive enough to save animals and humanity while God destroyed the rest of the earth in an enormous flood(AP Photo/Peter Dejong)
