Noah’s Ark, Pieces Intact, Found
Koenig's International News ^ | 6/14/06 | Bill Wilson

Posted on 06/15/2006 7:56:07 AM PDT by Michael_Michaelangelo

Wash—June 14—KIN—On June 5th, Bible Historian and explorer Bob Cornuke led an expedition of 15 geologists, historians, archeologists, scientists and attorneys on an exhausting mission 13,300 feet above sea level to locate and document the tremendous sections of what is thought to be Noah’s Ark located in the Ararat mountain range six hours North of Tehran, Iran. It had been essentially buried beneath the preservation of glaciers until last year when Iran recorded the hottest year on record which melted some of the snowcap revealing 450 by 75-foot footprint of the “object.”

Noah’s Ark was claimed to be found in Northern Iran rather than Turkey. Over a thousand expeditions had previously scoured Turkey’s Mt. Ararat, but by following the precise language of the Bible, Cornuke found what is believed to be Noah’s Ark, nearly intact. Turkey’s Mt. Ararat was incorrect because Marco Polo named the large mountain during his journeys in the 13th century. Through mapping scriptures in Genesis with ancient maps, Cornuke pieced together the clues and found where the Ararat Mountain Range made home for Noah’s Ark in Northern Iran not far from Turkey. Bob Cornuke has been at the center of several controversies over his past findings as he has come at odds with secular scholars, but several people who I know personally were on this expedition as well as some credible, internationally known heads of Christian ministries. Cornuke and the participants are careful to not say emphatically that they found Noah’s Ark, but have taken extensive documentation to present their facts for both the public, and the Biblical and scientific communities.

After crawling on hands and knees miles above the earth’s surface in four below zero weather, the expedition found an altar, which could very well be the altar Noah built because it was made from the same materials they later found in the Ark. They found grapevines over two inches think in the area, of which the DNA from the grapes is the oldest known to man. Genesis 9:20 says that Noah planted a vineyard. But most amazing was the ark itself. It was found in sections, somewhat like a house that had collapsed over the years. Sections of petrified wood 12 to 14 feet high and 40 feet long were found. They found a huge pile of timber, thought to be floors or walls, in four-to-six foot sections.

Geologists took nine samples of the ark under the strict eye of a video team for analysis by the Smithsonian Institute. Over 23,000 feet of video was taken and will be released to the public. You can get your first glimpse of it on Fox News with John Kasich Saturday at 8:00pm Eastern time, according to the Cornuke team. The expedition members hope to spark debate over the Ark; hope to show that the Bible is accurate and true; and hope that people will come to know Christ through the truth that they have revealed. In John 8:32, Jesus said, “And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” May you be revived and energized by the possibility of this wonderful discovery that there is one God and His truth reigns forever.

Wonder how many animals became extinct at that time? Wouldn't this event upset evolution?

If they found this "thing" intact as they say, there should be both human and animal evidence onboard.

I checked the synopsis via wickipaedia, and it looks interesting.

It's just a hunch, but I think there's plenty underneath the deserts and the ice. Then there are my experiences. If a gun was put to my head, I would proclaim that the world is fake.

Sometimes I blurt these things out, but because a good deal of FReepers are faint of heart, and are founded by strict belief systems, I'm reluctant to post some things sometimes. I like it here, and I'm not looking for grief.

The Genesis account of Noah's Flood fails to mention that Noah made a pit stop in Australia to drop off the kangaroo, platypus, koala, etc., then paddled over to North America to drop off the bison and the rattlesnakes, and swung down to Antarctica to let off a few penguins before heading over to Ararat to disembark.

It's just a few missing verses. No biggie.

Gen 8:4 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.

Strictly speaking, the Hebrew reads "rrt", not "Ararat"; the vowels are left out. (IIRC, vowel points in Hebrew didn't appear until Roman times.) "RRT" could mean "Urartu" as easily as "Ararat". The Urartu people lived in the area before the Armenians pushed them out. Making matters worse, the Hebrew word translated as "mountains" could mean hills or foothills. Thus "the mountains of rrt" could mean any hills or mountains in the old Urartu lands.

I don't need the Ark to believe in the One God, I am already a believer. But I find this news to be very exciting and I can't wait to see it.

I don't find this topic being covered in "From the Heartland" with John Kasich. Are you sure it will be on at 5:00 (FoxNews)?

I want to know how long it takes wood to petrify.

One glance from Helen Thomas is enough to make any wood
disappear completely.

I actually called his office and verified it. However, he was cancelled once before and it could happen again if time runs short.

Cool, thanks. So there's no way the Ark could be pertrified.

That is one of my favorite books, read it in my high school AP English class senior year. It was a really cool read!

Seems like it's 8 pm? I never did find the show or segment (I think it's the latter) on the Fox site. :')

I wish someone would do sonar and dig up more of what is buried under the frozen tundras in the poles and Alaska etc. I also think they would be amazed at what was they found.

bump.

Interested. But not at all sure how the find could be verified, or what difference it really makes.
