Default Noah's Ark found in Turkey

Quote:
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.

Noah's Ark
Biblical tale ... Noah filled the ark with two of each animal species

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."

Dig

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.

Only one picture? Well I went to Catholic school and they always told me Noah's Ark was just a parable.. a made up story to teach children, but hey who knows.

Interesting read.

I dunno. It reminds me of the Ark of the Covenant stuff, plenty of places claim to have it, but none can really prove it. It would be cool if this was true, but idk. I'd like to believe they are true, but at the same time (for selfish reasons) I'd like to think they aren't the real deal, and that the "real" ones are still out there. If that makes any sense.

Must have been a nightmare for Noah keeping all these animals apart.

Evan Almighty pretty much sums up the story. Build a boat, yet civilization lives anyway.

We did get a nice water park though.
