    must have come out of the Ark

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    Where that man gets his old fashioned ideas from, I donít know. He must have come out of the Ark.

    must have come out of the Ark = like fallen of the heaven; like fallen of the Moon

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    No.

    It means very ancient - like it had come from Noah's ark.

    No. He must be very old indeed. The reference is to Noah's Ark.
