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.

Makes about as much sense as using foresters to collect rock samples.

John 1:1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning. 3Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.

ok.

Can't they measure in cubits?

What's a Cubit?

Well, I just called the number listed on his website to ask someone there in his office if he was still scheduled to appear on Foxnews Saturday at 8:00pm ET, and guess who answers the phone? Mr. Cornuke! He said that as far as he knows he is still scheduled to appear, but can't guarantee it because he's been cancelled once before right before going on Live. We shall see.

A cubit is about 18 inches. Measure based on distance between the elbow and the halfway point between your thumb and next finger. Egyptian cubits may have been a little longer, say 20 inches.

How many Ark's did Noah have?

By sheer coincidence it turns out to be the same exact number of Barbra Streisand farewell tours.

Genesis 1: 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Genesis 1:26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, [b] and over all the creatures that move along the ground."

let Us - who is us?

A cubit is about...

Now, maybe I am incorrect, but I think that dfwgator is just quoting the Bill Cosby bit about Noah's Ark.

"but by following the precise language of the Bible, Cornuke found what is believed to be Noah’s Ark, nearly intact...."

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

Perhaps I'm missing some directions from my Bible.

LOL!!! I didn't know one could be both alive and petrified at the same time.

Why is someone called Bill Wilson putting his name on an article apparently trnaslated into English by Babelfish?
