Chinese and Turkish evangelical explorers believe they may have found Noah's Ark - 4000m up a mountain in Turkey.
The team said it had recovered wooden specimens from a structure on Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey that carbon dating proved was 4800 years old, around the same time the ark is said to have been afloat.
"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," said Yeung Wing-cheung, a Hong Kong documentary filmmaker and member of the 15-strong team from Noah's Ark Ministries International.

COMMENT: Well, I'm certainly convinced.
99.9% is good enough for me.


NOAH’S ARK FOUND – AGAIN — 16 Comments

  1. I clicked on the comments link planning to say “Good grief” and I see Lois has beat me to it! (Great minds and all that…)

    But here’s my *official* offering:

    Good grief.

  2. Well, that sure is a load off my mind. Now if they could just find Adam’s fig leaf.

  3. Carbon dating: The same technology that evangelicals reject because it can date objects father back in time than the 6,000 yrs they claim is the age of the Earth… 😛

  4. Well, obviously no one else had thought to build anything out of wood 4,800 years ago except Noah, so it follows logically that it must be the Ark. Particularly since it’s up a mountain. You get a lot of boats up mountains.

  5. They may not have found Adam’s fig leaf yet, but a few years ago the Royal Ontario Museum had a large exhibition of artifacts from the Victoria and Albert, and the favorite attention-getter in the publicity for it was David’s fig leaf. (A 19th-century enhancement of Michelangelo’s artistic conception.) Rather a large fig leaf, but, um, mainly, how shall I say, because it’s for a large *statue*.
