Excursion continues to find Noah’s Ark in Turkey

If Noah’s Ark has been sitting on a mountain somewhere in the Middle East for a few millennia, a few more months of waiting are a small price to pay, at least for Randall Price.

Price, who heads Liberty University’s Center For Judaic Studies, talked in January about his planned two-season expedition into Turkey, with the hopes of finding the Biblical artifact. He arrived in Turkey over the summer.

But Price said since then, he’s faced pressure from a political group in Turkey that is forcing him to keep his excursion very hush-hush.

“There’s not a lot (regarding Noah’s Ark) that I can say,” Price said, but he went on to give some basic details of what he plans to do next August, as the expedition finishes up.

Price said in January that he believes the Biblical boat is resting on Mount Ararat, covered by a glacier that sometimes temporarily recedes to give glimpses of what he believes is an ancient structure.

“We did penetrate about 18 feet down into the glacier, and we have some evidence that we’re in the right place,” Price said, adding satellite data puts them about 30 feet from their goal.

Price said he’s aware that whatever rests under the glacier might not be the jackpot he has been looking for.

“While we’d like to think it’s Noah’s Ark, we’re not sure what it is, but it’s in the right place,” he said.

Price said whatever there is to be discovered, it should be found when he returns in the coming summer.

“There is negotiation between Turkish authorities and this warring faction,” he said, “and that should enable us to go back without problems next year.”

Who’s paying for all this? I don’t need the discovery of Noah’s ark in order to prove God’s existence or His love for us.

The big question is: WILL IT FLOAT?

Interesting how this has been kept from discovery until now. It's starting to look like this could be the real thing based on some other pictures that have recently been shown.

The timing is interesting as in this age of unbelief, people might need this kind of evidence of Biblical truth.

I wonder if Little Arafat has been checked as Mt. Arafat
was where the Ark landed and the flood was going down very
fast so It might have drifted to the much lower mountain?

Whoever keeps this story going is, in the famous words of Johnny Dangerously, a fargin’ icehole. And speaking of such people, where’s Geraldo?

I truly think that someday some completely amazing artifacts will be found.

I don’t NEED Noah’s ark to believe in God and the Bible but I think it is so exciting that the ark might be found. The same with the Shroud of Turin, I want it to be authentic. I can’t really explain the reason why I feel this way.

Either that or maybe they’ll find Yasser up there somewhere on his mountain.

Dumb of me, of course I meant Mt. Ararat and Little Ararat!

If there is physical evidence discovered about a myth, it will inevitably lead to discreditation of the myth.

If you believe this, I would hope that you would discourage this exercise.

Global Warming may cause the ice to melt and reveal what is actually there.

If I were Noah’s family and just got stranded on the top of some mountain with nothing around, I would first start dismantling the ship to build the homes for my family. We will never find this vessel. It would not make sense to leave such tooled wood laying around and not use it in the New World. Sorry Everyone!
