Noah's Ark Expedition News?
Vanity | IngegrityRocks

Has anyone found any "recent" news on the Noah's Ark Expedition that was supposed to start in Turkey up Mt. Ararat on July 17th? I searched Google and found a lot of sites discussing it back in April and May, but nothing about the expedition status. Anyone else have any news?

I think these Ark searchers are con men, bilking money out of gullable supporters.

I've looked through the researchers website and there's nothing although it was recently updated. I suspect the results will be "inconclusive". Non-christians will jeer (which is OK) and these "arkeologists" will write books of their experiences and need more tax-deductible trips through the generous contributions of Christians for other trips so they can write other books about other future inconclusive journeys. (Do I sound a tad cynical?)

Like all artifacts, if they found a ship up there tomorrow non-Christians will say it proves nothing and (some) Christians will build a shrine to it worshipping the created rather than the Creator.

I've been looking, too--that is, searching Google for recent news. I'm told that the climbers are scheduled to come down from the mountain on Sunday, August 15th. If found, the discovery of a large wooden vessel similar to the one described in the Book of Genesis would be a remarkable find indeed.

I am anxious myself to find out. I know there are problems with rebel Kurds in Turkey right now, which caused the delay in the first place. I contacted on of the expedition people and he acted very hush-hush about it. Maybe for safety they cannot say. I know time for favorable weather is just about up, so either they will return soon or it did not happen. My guess is we will soon hear they found it. They KNOW where they are looking and it is just a matter of getting there safely.By the way, I am new here so forgive any stupidity.

From what I have gleaned from this article, the ark expedition is on hold due to a lack of clearance from the Turkish government...the article is dated 8/21/04.

Maybe He wants things hidden to remain hidden until the end times.....

My computer crashed Friday night and I have spent the last two days reconstructing the thing. I had backup the system at the end of July but it's like trying to put Humpty Dumpty back together. But I was able to find the link:

It's mostly about faith and science has little to do with it.

I met a pilot once who claimed to have seen the thing on Ararat from a plane he was flying.
He was, I believe, a respectable guy, was the husband of one of my daughter's school teachers in elementary school.

This was a while ago, since daughter is now a senior in college.
