Posted on 08/21/2012 9:59:16 AM PDT by CHRISTIAN DIARIST
When I caught the news reports that actress Donna DErrico just returned from Turkey, where she climbed Mt.Ararat in search of Noahs Ark, I initially thought it some kind of sacrilegious publicity stunt.
After all, DErrico is known for her role as a bikini-wearing vixen on TVs Baywatch, and, before that, as a Playboy magazine centerfold.
But I am now convinced the 44-year-old actress is on a spiritual quest: She truly wants to authenticate one of the great stories of the Bible.
Indeed, she says, I believe in the Bible. Her interest in Noahs Ark was sparked when she was a Catholic school girl. I would do class projects based on the ark., she remembers.
DErrico is well aware that her search for the Ark is looked upon with skepticism if not derision but those who consider her a decidedly unlikely if not unworthy Ark hunter.
If I didnt know me, she says, I would think it was funny. You know, Baywatch babe goes searching for Noahs Ark. I know what the mentality is, what the general consensus is, that everybody thinks its hilarious. But, really and honestly, I dont even care.
Thats because DErrico is purpose-driven. She is no longer the young woman who was all about selling her sex appeal on TV and in magazines. She now presents her body as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God.
Indeed, DErricos search for Noahs Ark actually caused her bodily injury during her recent trip to Turkey, when she tumbled down Mt. Ararat suffering cuts and bruises to her face, arms and legs.
While it was a little scary, she says, it was not too great a price to pay to glorify God with her quest. In fact, she plans to return to Mt. Ararat next month to continue her search for the Arks final resting place.
Now there almost certainly are some religious folk who believe that, if God means for Noahs Ark to be found which, arguably, would be the greatest discovery of our time He wouldnt bestow that honor upon a woman with DErricos less-than-Godly past.
But the Almighty chooses whom He will choose.
Indeed, the Bible tells the story of Rahab, the harlot, whom God chose to assist Joshua and the children of Israel in sacking the city of Jericho. It also tells the story of Mary Magdalene, cleansed of seven demons, who had the honor of being the very first to see the risen Savior.
So while it is improbable that Donna DErrico will go down in archeological history as the person who finally found Noahs Ark, we know that with God all things are possible.
Cool post, but what’s sacrilegious about “bikini-wearing vixens”? God made them, too!
This post is SCREAMING for pictures, and only tasteful ones please, this woman is beautiful, without the excessive skin.
As I recall, the girls in Baywatch did not wear bikinis. They wore red one piece swimsuits.
In the Holy Bible it says that Noah’s Ark came to rest on the “Mountains” of Ararat, Not just Mt Ararat. It could be in Turkey, Iraq or Iran.
did Noah’s ark have flotation devices?
She was a bikini wearing “vixen”?
Never having watched more than a few minutes of the totality of Baywatch, I know nothing of the character. Vixen, to me, connotes negative characteristics like being snotty, gossipy, malicious, stuff like that. Nothing that I read says anything bad about Donna Marco, the character she played. Therefore, the character played by D’Errico cannot be called a vixen.
Journalists take words from their thesaurus, but don’t use a dictionary.
Godspeed to her in her quest, but I would think that the lumber, of which the ark was constructed, would be quite useful in a postdiluvian world.
Donna. Sweetie. You’re looking in the wrong place. The Ark is in my back yard. Seriously. Come look yourself.
Not if you're hot, I guess.
My first thought was, “exactly!”
My second thought was, “was the one piece the top or the bottom?”
Too heavy and too far to carry after the water receded... and the terrain on Ararat is pretty rugged.

Is this it?
D'Errico apparently did have a mishap climbing Ararat though:
Apparently it's not very serious though and she'll be herself again soon:
But I think she's looking in the wrong place. The "mountains of Ararat" of Genesis are further south than "Mt. Ararat".
