If you watch the video Saturday, please give us your thoughts on its authenticity next week, for those of us who won't be able to watch it. Thanks - OB1

"so there are 8 more finds out there???"

At least. If you total up all the peices of the ark that have been sold they may add up to a lot more than 8 arks. LOL

Interesting timing with the Divinci Code...could God be re-affirming those doubters out there?

Are you serious? Divinci code doubters were about Jesus, not God.

Assuming for arguments sake that Jesus isn't God, would that mean the God of the OT doesn't exist?

While Probably a fake, I kind of hope he found it.

Been a daydream of mine since I was about 6.

Collosians 1:13For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14in whom we have redemption,the forgiveness of sins. 15He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. 17He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

If all things were made through him, I guess he would have to be there from the beginning.

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.

I don't find the NT inspired writing so I'll just assume the God Jesus worshipped has been there forever.

Geologists took nine samples of the ark under the strict eye of a video team for analysis by the Smithsonian Institute.

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

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?

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.

My understanding of the text is that there were large pieces that were intact vs broken down into boards. I think you could have known that if you had been less . . . skeptical.

Sections of petrified wood 12 to 14 feet high and 40 feet long were found.

I had no idea that trees in Iraq used to grow 12 feet wide. Otherwise you could never have a piece of wood that big.

Okay, I'll bite -- what in the heck does "oldest DNA known to man" mean, and how do you "date" DNA?

I'm familiar with a very large number of dating methods, as well as multiple analytical techniques to extract various kinds of information from DNA, but this just sounds like total mumbo-jumbo.

iirc pitch is a pine-resin product. I believe it is processed from pine sap by boiling and heating, similar to caramelization. it isn't petroleum. you might be thinking naptha or bitumen tar.

Thanks Blam. Bob Cornuke again, eh? He said some modern pieces of machinery laying on the bottom of the Gulf of Aqaba were chariot wheels from the wreckage of the pharaoh's army in pursuit of the Israelites (if memory serves); also just noticed that he claims to have found the anchors from the ship which carried St Paul to Malta.

If it's not too much trouble, tape it? :') Actually, if that's just regular Fox (not cable), I'll tape it myself. :'D
