'Noah's Ark' discovery on Turkish mountain
AFP ^ | April 27, 2010

Posted on 04/26/2010 9:01:21 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

A group of Chinese and Turkish evangelical explorers said Monday they believe they may have found Noah's Ark -- 4000m up a mountain in Turkey.

The team say they recovered wooden specimens from a structure on Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey that carbon dating proved was 4800 years old, around the same time the ark is said to have been afloat.

"It's not 100 percent that it is Noah's Ark but we think it is 99.9 percent that this is it," Yeung Wing-cheung, a Hong Kong documentary filmmaker and member of the 15-strong team from Noah's Ark Ministries International told AFP.

The structure had several compartments, some with wooden beams, which were believed to house animals, he said.

The group of evangelical archaeologists ruled out an established human settlement on the grounds that one had never been found above 3500 metres in the vicinity, Yeung said.

Apparently, Noah mass produced them.

The biblical story says God decided to flood the earth after seeing how corrupt it had become,

If this was/is true then why have we not seen it since? The world is hundreds of times more corrupt today than at anytime in history.

I'm calling BS... just another fairy tale...

I have seen so many supposed findings of Noah’s Ark that I am not keen to believe without strong evidence - fossilized Unicorn poop should be enough!

You'd almost think that Noah was skipper of the flagship of a flotilla of arks, if you can believe all of the reports we've seen over the years.

I tend to believe that many (if not all) of these archaeologists have found evidence of large, sea-going craft on Mt. Ararat. How else can you explain the discovery of all those wooden constructions? They can't be lodgings. The place is as inhospitable now, as it probably was 10,000 years ago.

I've gotta admit that it's a fascinating, ongoing endeavor.

“And God told Noah, build an ark and take 2 of everything.” I think Noah misheard Him and built 200..

You must have skipped Sunday school the day they explained the whole rainbow thing. Next time he said he’d use fire.

Thee dating of 4800 years ago is over 300 years after thee beginning of ancient Egypt.

12,000 feet up a mountain begs the question where the water went.

You’re right I think that they have actually run across quite a bit of evidence apparently of more than one craft.

But, just dang! At first I thought that the craft might have broken up and was deposited in a rather far flung fashion. But some of what has been found is too much material for that theory to “stay afloat.”

I swear as soon as I thought stay afloat I tried to find another phrase, but it just locked me up. : )

You could build a house with the all relics of the True Cross. I’m guessing you could build a modest sized navy with all the arks on Ararat.

Anyone care to integrate the volume of a shell with an initial circumference of 25,000 miles and a final circumference 12,000 feet above the initial circumference? That is a pot load of water.
