I think this has now been posted more than the “I Am A Bad American” threads, back in the day.

That’s some interesting looking footage. Let’s see what the next few days and weeks bring.

Ignore the idiots.

Watching that video tells me absolutely nothing. That could have been shot anywhere.

To actually be able to see and touch the wood that very likely could be from the Ark is a giant leap ahead in supporting the fact that the story of Noah did actually happen. And why would that discovery be so important? Because of all the stories in the Bible that non-Christians and weak Christians doubt the most, Noah’s Ark is near the top of the list. Find evidence that there was a giant boat in the mountains of Ararat matching the size described in the Bible, and its will be a major wake-up call for millions, who will have to look at the Bible as more than just a collection of ancient folk tales - but a true recording of events that actually happened.

But still you will have doubters. They could find the ships log itself, with a feeding schedule for the animals, and fossilized piles of zoo doo and you will not shake awake those asleep.

Let's say for the sake of argument that this team actually found a wooden ark 12,000 feet up the mountain. Does anyone here honestly believe that Democrats or liberals will actually change their mindset towards Christianity with a confirmed ark? If this a real discovery, they will just say 'so what'.

If it is as you say a hoax, then National Geographic has been duped as well.
Where is your evidence that “something” was not found? Ark or an old dwelling - there is 99.9% chance that the video and photos are not staged props - so let the investigation happen and we can decide for ourselves.

Rule of thumb: when there’s a question mark in a news story, the answer is “No”.

No they will blame global warming, or even Noah's little talked about brother Georjiha Busheon

Perfectly preserved lumber? In ice? I believe the biblical account, but I’m quite skeptical of this particular “discovery.”

GOD himself can descend from the heavens, confront them in their front yards, perform numerous miracles before their eyes and they would never believe.

It is written.

Signs of old structures are found frequently. Leaping to the conclusion that just because a structure is old, that it must be the literal Ark however tends to invite skepticism and ridicule. I have yet to see anything that would even hint at anything nautical, much less Biblical.

Perhaps if they had followed your good advice and “let the investigation happen” BEFORE issuing their conclusions “with 99% certainty’, they might be considered less as fools or charlatans.

That some sort of wooden structure was found is interesting but it wouldn’t be the first ancient hut or shrine found high in the mountains. More investigation is needed.

Mount Ararat was most notably Volcanically active around 3000 b.c. and a few times since. You will notice the lava flow covering the wooden beams in some places and actually ending the beams as it appears the lava burnt through them in attached picture (left center). Hard to plant something like this. Either this is Noah's Ark or an old man-made structure (ref. 1840 volcanic activity, really an earthquake where structures were cover)....It appears this structure is at least as old as the covering lava flow. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Ararat (ref. wiki)

Great photo, thanks. That should dispel the hoax myth. Ughhhhhhhh, never mind. They could find petrified piles of zoo doo and the skeptics still would be skeptics.

a Perfectly preserved Mammoth found in Ice you can believe, but Wood you can’t? See the photo on this same thread with Lava flowing over part of the structure. Lava from a 3000 BC eruption.

Why can’t the skeptics of the literal account of Noah and the Flood find reason to be excited about a pretty spectacular archeological find? Even if it’s not the Ark, finding a human built structure older than the ice and lava flow that cover it should be reason for Christian and secular alike to be excited.
But most of the non-believers here on FR and in much greater numbers on the DU are hoping this all turns out to be some sophisticated hoax so they can laugh at the silly Christians, and so they can find reason to continue to reject the Gospel.

After years of watching Noah’s Ark stories and specials, starting with the excellent “In Search of” series I am glad that they have discovered something like this. For years I have seen shows talking about stories and pictures of something up in that mountains and now it comes to this. Who knows what it is but I think there is SOMETHING up there. What a great miracle if this really was the origin of the story. Lets keep watching.

Please read my post. I did not state that I do not believe this story. I said that I am skeptical. "Skeptical" means "requires more evidence."

For those who think the lava flow in above picture is ice

Mount Ararat is known as a StratoVolcano. This Lava tends to be Glassy like. Giving it a shimmer. In addition ice is covering the lava adds to the shimmer. It's a naturally occuring Glass called Obsidian which is found in Felsic Lava flow and is caused when this lava cools very quickly (like in a VERY cold environment at 13k Feet on Mount Ararat).

Click Here for StratoVolcano Wiki

The lava that flows from stratovolcanoes tends to be viscous; it cools and hardens before spreading far. The magma forming this lava is often felsic, having high-to-intermediate levels of silica (as in rhyolite, dacite, or andesite), with lesser amounts of less-viscous mafic magma.

Picture of Obsidian Lava almost identical to the Chinese explorer picture I posted above.
