The remains of Noah's Ark have been discovered 13,000ft up a Turkish mountain, it has been claimed.
A group of Chinese and Turkish evangelical explorers say they have found wooden remains on Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey.
They claim carbon dating proves the relics are 4,800 years old around the same time the ark was said to be afloat.
Yeung Wing-Cheung, from the Noah's Ark Ministries International research team, said: "It's not 100 per cent that it is Noah's Ark, but we think it is 99.9 per cent that this is it."
He said the structure contained several compartments, some with wooden beams, that they believe were used to house animals.
The group of evangelical archaeologists ruled out an established human settlement on the grounds none have ever been found above 11,000ft in the vicinity, Yeung said.
Local Turkish officials will ask the central government in Ankara to apply for UNESCO World Heritage status so the site can be protected while a major archaeological dig is conducted.
The biblical story says that God decided to flood the Earth after seeing how corrupt it was.
He then told Noah to build an ark and fill it with two of every animal species.
After the flood waters receded, the Bible says, the ark came to rest on a mountain.
Many believe that Mount Ararat, the highest point in the region, is where the ark and her inhabitants ran aground.
Would this news be more credible had it been published by either the New York Times or Washington Post instead of the Sun ?
I didn’t think carbon dating was that accurate.
And this makes, how many times it’s been found?
And claimed. And claimed. And claimed.
Noah’s Ark seems to be “discovered” about every two years, always on the same mountain.
I met my match at EcarbonHarmony.com
Noah’s Ark gets found very often.
An Ark is nothing more than a modern shipping container.
Do I believe the story of Noah?? No..sounds like artistic license at it's best.
Bill Cosby: “What’s a cubit?”
In truth, they probably re-found the remains of an old monastery which was discovered on Ararat decades ago.
It’s actually the ancestral remains of the adolescent Yeti home of Helen Thomas.
And when anyone from any other country wants to go to the site to take a look at the thing the Turks will not grant the request.
Until they allow experts from around the world to examine the remains, it will continue to be bogus.
I'm a seasoned citizen and my recollection is up to a half dozen times in the last 50 years.
Whats a cubit?
One of the funniest comedy albums of all time.
Enough to fit two of every animal on earth?
Well if they find rhinoceros caca, I’m sold.
Did Yeti lead them to it? Was the Loch Ness monster aboard?
Did Nostradamus predict this? What about the dolphins?
