Noah's Ark - Fact Not Fiction

In 1943 during WW2, an army Sgt., Ed Davis, was working in Iran near the Turkish border, in charge of locals hired by our army to build a road through Iran to the Soviet border, which would carry supplies to the Soviets instead of flying them in.

In short, Ed did a tremendous favor for a little Kurdish village near Ararat. His workers were mostly Kurds and the chief of the village came to Ed and asked if he would like to see Noah's Ark. He said the summer on the mountain had been hottest in many years and the Ark was visible for the first time in years...

Very interesting.
But with all the interest over the years, why hasn’t anyone, including the author of the article, taken some decent photographs? You’d think that would have been a priority if someone was going to spend all the time and money going to see if it is really Noah’s Ark. Instead, all we have are some very poor photos that remind me of UFO or Bigfoot sightings.

Great, but who’s job was it to shovel all the............, never mind.

We went through all this publicly 20 years ago, same pictures and everything. It was found to false.

I think we both know the answer to that.

Artifacts of Christianity/Judaism have, as a rule, not been preserved, despite the fact that you can buy a forest full of “pieces of the cross” when visiting the area...

As far as I know, armadillos don’t swim. Wonder how they made it to Texas from Mt. Ararat?

Duh....Texas was spared, God would never punish his favorite State. It's in the Bible.

Oh, they swim. As ten year old kids, a friend and I hiked about a mile into some woods alongside a river in SE Oklahoma (Skunk ape territory), our second camp out without supervision. We set up camp with some lightweight cots and little else. In the middle of a sleepless moonless night, we heard something drop into the river just upstream and across the river from us. We heard loud splashing as the ‘thing’ slowly made it across the river. We couldn’t see a thing as the fire had died down, but within a minute or two I heard my buddy screaming like a little girl. Something was under his cot and bucking wildly trying to get out from under. I found a flashlight and was able to see that the ‘thing’ was a very wet armadillo. So, yes, I happen to know that an armadillo CAN swim.

There’s also a fair amount of evidence for dispersion of animals and plants by rafting in the early post-flood era. Biogeography shows that flora and fauna tended to cross oceans via ocean currents from one shore to another. There would have been a great deal of floating plant material for several decades (depending on the tree species) after the flood.

The area is in contested territory from what I understand and no one can get in there without being shot at these days.

I don’t know the full details of who is contesting what, but that’s the last thing I heard about the region.

I should point out that the Bible does not say the Ark landed on Ararat - only in the general region. Ararat itself is a post-flood volcano, so these claimed sightings cannot be accurate. There was a paper on this subject at the latest International Conference on Creationism a few weeks ago. (Sorry...)

During one of the warmer periods around a thousand years ago there may have been a monastery with wooden construction high on the slopes that later became engulfed in the glacier, which might explain some of the sightings and evidence.
