Posted on 06/28/2009 5:17:15 AM PDT by Fennie
Saddened by the wickedness of man, God directs the righteous Noah to build an ark for his family and two of each species of animal.
Together, they ride the ark through 40 days and 40 nights of torrential rains that God unleashes upon the Earth. And when the waters subside, Noah and the animals return to land.
"That seems almost like a fairy story," said archaeologist Randall Price, who is director of Liberty University's new Center for Judaic Studies. "But we believe it was an actual event."
This summer Price, 57, plans to continue on a journey to prove just that as he joins an expedition to Mount Ararat. His team believes that it is there, in Eastern Turkey, where Noah's Ark remains preserved underneath layers of rubble and ice.

Um, Dude? ‘Noah’s Ark’ is in Wisconsin! ;)
No, it’s in venison.
Now the problem is....Telling someone to build an ark and get two of each kind because it's gonna rain....is STUPID.
All you have to do is look at the little Ark kits we buy for our kids to see how stupid the story is.
I'd say there was a storm once "somewhere"...perhaps a tsunami....and "Noah's Ark" was the best way they could describe the event. I don't even think it happened in Turkey!!
I don't want to get into a debate with you on Biblical events but I am curious as to what you mean by this. Please expound.
There’s several things about this story -
He’s been there 30 times and has nothing but some photos to show for it? Hundreds and prehaps thousands have been up there over the last 2 thousand years and have brought back nothing.
It has been proven time and time again that there was a huge flood so that isn’t a fairy tale.
$60k shouldn’t be that much for these guys. One would think that they would have had things ready to go at a moment’s notice for years already. There’s the weather excuse, the mean ol’ government excuse, then they have the military causing land slides excuse and now they need some funding to start to get things together excuse. Enough already! It’s been exposed to the weather enough over the centuries and crushed with lands slides so rounding up a few dozen villagers to just haul the thing down this summer isn’t going to hurt it much more.
And I’m going to dig a hole to China in my back yard. The day workers are half way there!
Actual event.....There have been intense floods all over the world at some point....Just look at the tsunami which we all saw.....How would you explain the intensity back then???? Voila...Noah!!
Wrong. Whoever wrote this lede over at the AP (Always Pimping), failed due diligence. God did not tell Noah to gather only two of each. He told Noah to take 14 of many animal types. See Genesis 7:2-3.
"Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that [are] not clean by two, the male and his female. Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth."
.......Wouldn’t Turkey be searching for the Ark if they thought it was there ?......
Hunting the Ark is a profit center for Turkey. Why spend money to look for something not there when foreigners will spend good hard $$$ doing it for you.
3:1 This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
3:2 That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:
3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
3:4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: (Ge.1)
3:6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:(Ge.7:11-24)
3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.(II Pe. 3:12-14 and Re. 20 and 21)
3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

About half of this book gives detailed accounts by thirteen different explorers who have climbed Mt. Ararat and one discovers how difficult such expeditions are to arrange, how treacherous Ararat is to scale, and how inaccessible the Ark is, buried under ice most of the time (except during long, hot periods). Also, severe earthquakes on the mountain appear to have broken whatever is up there into 3-4 separate pieces, which now slowly slide down in glacier ice, into the deep, northern Ahora Gorge.
