"Amazing to me how people easily doubt what looks to be the find of mankinds history...for sure we need not be guilible...but this really looks to be the real deal and I am excited! The world needs this boost badly."
Just because someone is a Christian, doesn't mean they have to check their intellect at the door. The story of Noah is so facially absurd and completely counter to principles of well-understood physics, geology, animal husbandry, and naval architecture, common sense dictates that the story be discounted as myth, rather than historical fact.
The only thing that someone with a reasonable understand of modern science can say about the Arc, exactly like the Unicorn that is found in multiple Biblical passages, is that there is no scientific evidence to support any kind of belief in its existence.
I guess you have not really looked into the scientific evidence of the flood. What maybe you fail to understand is that science is the study of, and biblical and spiritual things are part of that eventhough the darwinists have hikacked science and try to redefine it and have taken the spitual out of it. You obviously have checked your commonsense at the intellectual door. God does amazing things and was ablle to do what He needed to do ..whether or not we can prove it scientifically is beside the point. What will you say when and if this site is verfied as being Noah’s ark?

Despite weather you believe the flood was a actual event or not, if this structure is real and is as old as they are saying it is, (and all evidence is pointing that way), you would have to agree it's a fantastic archaeological find.
I happen to believe it was a real event, and I am in good company of other believers including Col Jim Irwin Ararat Explorer and NASA Astronaut.
I guess they carried up Lava Flows along with the Wood to create one of a kind elaborate Hoax OR They planted the Wood in a fashion to look like Lava is flowing over it.
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 they seem burnt through 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) that has been exposed to volcanic activity.
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 enviroment on top 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.
Above is additional Information....YOU DECIDE!

...the Unicorn that is found in multiple Biblical passages...
"Unicorn" is an incorrect English translation of the Hebrew word "r'eym." Deut. 33:17 uses the phrase "qar'ney r'eym" or "horns of a r'eym." If r'eym is properly translated "unicorn," why would "horns" be plural? The KJV translators simply got the translation wrong.
A better translation is "wild ox" or possibly "rhinoceros."
