Noah’s Ark found, yet again....
I think this has now been posted more than the “I Am A Bad American” threads, back in the day.
How many arks did Noah build?
That’s some interesting looking footage. Let’s see what the next few days and weeks bring.
Ignore the idiots.
Watching that video tells me absolutely nothing. That could have been shot anywhere.
Need evidence of animal spore...not unless Noah cleaned the ark out and used the pooh for fertilizer...
To actually be able to see and touch the wood that very likely could be from the Ark is a giant leap ahead in supporting the fact that the story of Noah did actually happen. And why would that discovery be so important? Because of all the stories in the Bible that non-Christians and weak Christians doubt the most, Noah’s Ark is near the top of the list. Find evidence that there was a giant boat in the mountains of Ararat matching the size described in the Bible, and its will be a major wake-up call for millions, who will have to look at the Bible as more than just a collection of ancient folk tales - but a true recording of events that actually happened.
But still you will have doubters. They could find the ships log itself, with a feeding schedule for the animals, and fossilized piles of zoo doo and you will not shake awake those asleep.
The Chris Craft on the side was a dead give away.
If it is as you say a hoax, then National Geographic has been duped as well.
Where is your evidence that “something” was not found? Ark or an old dwelling - there is 99.9% chance that the video and photos are not staged props - so let the investigation happen and we can decide for ourselves.
Rule of thumb: when there’s a question mark in a news story, the answer is “No”.
No they will blame global warming, or even Noah's little talked about brother Georjiha Busheon
Perfectly preserved lumber? In ice? I believe the biblical account, but I’m quite skeptical of this particular “discovery.”
It is written.
>>> Ark or an old dwelling - there is 99.9% chance that the video and photos are not staged props so let the investigation happen and we can decide for ourselves.
Signs of old structures are found frequently. Leaping to the conclusion that just because a structure is old, that it must be the literal Ark however tends to invite skepticism and ridicule. I have yet to see anything that would even hint at anything nautical, much less Biblical.
Perhaps if they had followed your good advice and “let the investigation happen” BEFORE issuing their conclusions “with 99% certainty’, they might be considered less as fools or charlatans.
That some sort of wooden structure was found is interesting but it wouldn’t be the first ancient hut or shrine found high in the mountains. More investigation is needed.
“Perfectly preserved lumber? In ice? I believe the biblical account, but Im quite skeptical of this particular discovery.”
a Perfectly preserved Mammoth found in Ice you can believe, but Wood you can’t? See the photo on this same thread with Lava flowing over part of the structure. Lava from a 3000 BC eruption.
Why cant the skeptics of the literal account of Noah and the Flood find reason to be excited about a pretty spectacular archeological find? Even if its not the Ark, finding a human built structure older than the ice and lava flow that cover it should be reason for Christian and secular alike to be excited.
But most of the non-believers here on FR and in much greater numbers on the DU are hoping this all turns out to be some sophisticated hoax so they can laugh at the silly Christians, and so they can find reason to continue to reject the Gospel.
After years of watching Noah’s Ark stories and specials, starting with the excellent “In Search of” series I am glad that they have discovered something like this. For years I have seen shows talking about stories and pictures of something up in that mountains and now it comes to this. Who knows what it is but I think there is SOMETHING up there. What a great miracle if this really was the origin of the story. Lets keep watching.
Please read my post. I did not state that I do not believe this story. I said that I am skeptical. "Skeptical" means "requires more evidence."
