    Post Has "Noah's Ark" Been Found on Turkish Mountaintop?

    I believe that if they actually find something that is similar to what people claim is there that we'll see another surge in religious beliefs. I know that I'd have to rethink my beliefs about the first books of the bible. The History Channel used to show 'documentaries' about the ark a lot.

    Expedition to search for Noah's Ark
    Monday, April 26, 2004 Posted: 4:40 PM EDT (2040 GMT)

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- An expedition is being planned for this summer to the upper reaches of Turkey's Mount Ararat where organizers hope to prove an object nestled amid the snow and ice is Noah's Ark.

    A joint U.S.-Turkish team of 10 explorers plans to make the arduous trek up Turkey's tallest mountain, at 17,820 feet, from July 15 to August 15, subject to the approval of the Turkish government, said Daniel P. McGivern, president of Shamrock- The Trinity Corporation of Honolulu, Hawaii.

    The goal: to enter what they believe to be a mammoth structure some 45 feet high, 75 feet wide and up to 450 feet long that was exposed in part by last summer's heat wave in Europe.

    "We are not excavating it. We are not taking any artifacts. We're going to photograph it and, God willing, you're all going to see it," McGivern said.

    Explorers have long searched for an ark on the high slopes of Mount Ararat, where the biblical account of the Great Flood places it.

    In 1957, Turkish air force pilots spotted a boat-shaped formation in Agri province. The government did not pursue the sighting, however. The entire area, including Mount Ararat, was off limits to foreigners because of Soviet complaints that explorers were U.S. spies.

    That ban was lifted in 1982, and since then teams of explorers have visited the area but have been unable to substantiate any claim of an ark.

    McGivern and Ahmet Ali Arslan, a Turkish mountain climber who grew up in a town near Mount Ararat, say satellite photos have helped them pinpoint a more exact location. Arslan will be leading the expedition.

    The biblical account in the Book of Genesis says that after the great deluge, the ark came to rest on the mountain with Noah's family and a cargo of male and female pairs of every kind of animal.

    Geologists say even though there is evidence of a flood in Mesopotamia in Sumerian times, it is not possible for a ship to make landfall at an altitude as high as Mount Ararat.

    Has Noah's Ark Been Found

    Has Noah's Ark Been Found on Turkish Mountaintop?


    FOXNews.com


    The remains of Noah's Ark have been discovered 13,000 feet up a Turkish mountain -- according to a sensational claim by evangelical explorers.


    A group of Chinese and Turkish evangelical explorers say wooden remains they have discovered on Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey are the remains of Noah's Ark.

    The group claims that carbon dating proves the relics are 4,800 years old, meaning they date to around the same time the ark was said to be afloat. Mt. Ararat has long been suspected as the final resting place of the craft by evangelicals and literalists hoping to validate biblical stories.

    Yeung Wing-Cheung, from the Noah's Ark Ministries International research team that made the discovery, said: "It's not 100 percent that it is Noah's Ark, but we think it is 99.9 percent that this is it."

    No its not Noahs Ark, its made from the wrong wood, God told Noah what sort of wood to use and its differant frtom what this "ark" they found was made of.

    Noahs Arks probably long gone anyway, the Roman Historian Josephus reports the locals used the wood to make lucky amulets.

    I dont think God would want the Ark found anyway, hes set thinks up so that only those who really want to find God will do so, hard evidence or "flying across the sky so every one can see him" would hardly seperate the Sheep from the Goats.
