Posted on 04/27/2010 1:02:13 PM PDT by Fennie
The Sun, Fox News and others are reporting that a group of Chinese and Turkish Christians claim to have found the remains of Noah's Ark on Mount Ararat about 13,000 ft up.

Your link took me to a porn site.
"Found Ark" report # 31,722?
If I lived 100 years longer this would probably rise to close to 50,000.
This is right up there with the whack jobs in the Science(?) channel, the History (?) channel who constantly bombard us with stupid, pointless schlockumentaries about "Alien Ancient Visitors," "Life Without People (WTF?)," "100 Ways the Earth Will 'End'."
Are American "average voters" stupid? Personally I believe most are, yes.
The level of abyssmal ignorance and neuroses among students, all the way through postgraduate level is almost all of them of them.
What ark? There is no ark. Noah and family used the dang thing for firewood. What else did they have for fuel?
I just found the Ark of the Covenant.....wouldn’t you know it...it was in my attic the whole time!
Turkey must REALLY need the tourism money,too
I’m not sure what I found, but it’s wallet says “Hoffa.”
Get that on E Bay real quick!
Then let me know how many more you need....either real leather or a cost effective leatherette!
So, should I cancel my trip to Turkey next month, or what?
I’m not packing all that hiking equipment and all those shovels for no damned good reason.
By the way, an easy way to find out if this “find” is REALLY Noah’s Ark would be to do DNA tests on the wood. If there’s no animal poop to be found, chances are the whole story is poop.
“I just found the Ark of the Covenant.....wouldnt you know it...it was in my attic the whole time!”
Yeah, but that’s nothing compared to what was in my basement: The cross of Christ and the holy grail!
“Noah and family used the dang thing for firewood. “
Do you think they had to use the whole thing? It was pretty big.
even Noahs getting annoyed ...
Now that’s funny.
” The cross of Christ “
Clarification! The True Cross, The Holy Cross, usually no prob.
Add Christ into the picture and it changes the conotation.
While a Christian by birth and life practice, there is some times a fine line drawn in the sand by people such as myself and others who want to drag you down into hell regardless of your beliefs.
Just a friendly heads up!
OTOH, I saw the first installment of America and it seemed OK.
Rumor has it a box containing a shriveled up chesnut has been found in Hitler’s old Bavarian mountain retreat. If Adolf only had one, we now know where the other one went.
But wait, there's more!
For the low, low price of $29.95, plus $2 million shipping and handling, the original set of Clark Gas glasses, used at the Last Supper! One of them is sure to be the Holy Grail! This offer will end soon! Don't wait! If you call in the next 10 minutes, we'll ship you the body of Billy Mays, boxed!
> There isn’t much history on History these days, is there?
And there isn’t much science on the Science Channel and just about everything is degenerating into informercials, ghost hunting and alien abductions.
Once upon a time, I actually liked the SciFi channel, but they changed their name, scheduled saturation programming on ghost hunting, wrestling, vampires, and went forward the lame monster of the week marathons.
They almost never show actual sci-fi.
Maybe - maybe not - if not, what is it - buried deep in the ice, high on the mountain...
I've always believed that God would reveal the proof of things when He was ready - for His own purposes.
If people, for example, had the proof of the ARK before them - then what would that mean?
That the Bible tells a real story. and if so - then????
So I will be neither a naysayer nor a believer be of this story at this time. There simply is not enough evidence either way -
I believe Noah's ARK is out there somewhere tho'
Why dost thou protest so vehemently?
What were they knocking on the wood for? To see if there is a trap door? /s/s/s/s/s
Looks fake but the allegations are real.
Lucky you. /s
Raise an army, Invincible One!
This photo, of this 'room' buried under thousands of years worth of ice, looks like the inside of a hull - notice the gradual curving
Deep under the ice
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjpeQU7GIZc Have fun debunking, all you arm chair experts. I suggest there is not ONE of us in this forum that can aye or nay it. But those of you who just KNOW it's a hoax, please DO share your expertise and tell us what it might be, that well hewn and built, that far up the mountain where a dwelling would be very unlikely, considering the hostile weather and dangerous shifting shale of the mountain, and how did it get that deep under the ice>
Inquiring minds want to know...
How long do you reckon it took for any trees to grow? Granted Noah could have used some oil or tar for fuel, but he had to build shelter and wherever he ended up was basically mud for a good long time.
“How long do you reckon it took for any trees to grow?”
Well, the dove did return with an olive branch, presumably from an olive tree.
Funny how MSN has already declared this a fraud, but they still haven’t figured global warming or the Kenyan in the White House yet.
Dried Dung Patties, the same thing they use in a lot of places today...oopps
Were there two platypus skeletons in it?
Didn’t think so. It’s a fake.
In case you didn’t see it from Fox: http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2010/04/27/noahs-ark-found-turkey-ararat/?test=latestnews
I am shocked anyone was allowed up there. Seems Turkey was bent on prohibiting anyone going anywhere near Mt. Ararat. (Typical Moslem jackasses trying to block any knowledge?) How did they get there? Is this the same place people have speculated for decades?
How often are plants submerged under floods from creeks and rivers and survive?
I’d be satisfied that many plants would simply survive the flood and continue to live on.
Certainly there would be a short period where there is little to no new growth. The world covered in water brings with it a great deal of mud. Much of what was once on the face of the earth was buried under massively thick layers of mud. The point is that there were very few resources in the area and it makes practical sense that the ark was used for other purposes after the waters receded. Why would they keep it in tact? To what end?
Sure, but if it’s only 40 days, wouldn’t some of the trees survive? And we have no idea about how much was “just mud”, although that’s not the indication in the Bible. As someone mentioned, the olive branch....
There was still a lot of water when the dove brought back the olive branch. The Bible, as usual, terse and short on details but one must assess that the olive branch probably came from a higher elevation. As for the mud, there’s no question about that. There was a great deal of mud everywhere. I’ve seen moderate flooding and there’s mud everywhere and it’s often very thick.
Was Everest also covered? That would mean 5 1/2 miles of water above ‘sea level’. Just askin’.
“Was Everest also covered? That would mean 5 1/2 miles of water above sea level. Just askin.”
Who knows if Mt. Everest was even there at the time, or if so, how high it was?
Lots of geographical changes occurred after the flood.
Whatever was there at the time was covered.
Believing The Flood actually literally occurred strains credulity.
There’s no indication that Noah’s ark was curved. It didn’t need to travel through the water; it just needed to stay afloat.
