I’m among those who thinks there’s some basic actual events behind the tale of Noah and the Ark — but I would be very surprised if it is found. It’s not like the Ark was some small thing, and it’s not as if no one has lived in the area during the intervening millennia, and not as if no one has ever previously looked for it. And — nothing. Hagopian claimed to have been all up inside it, but that claim never produced anything except a “replica”.
The Ark has been reported by various folks who went looking for it, and it has never been found. This particular story doesn’t have anything going for it, and has a former insider saying it’s a fake. So, it would not/will not be surprising when the story breaks down.
