Black Sea Mystery: In Search of Noah's Ark


Posted on Thursday, 21 October, 2004 | Comment icon 9 comments

"Four years ago, scientists thought they had found the perfect place to settle the Noah flood debate: A farmer's house on a bluff overlooking the Black Sea built about 7,500 years ago just before tidal waves inundated the homestead, submerged miles of coastline and turned the freshwater lake into a salty sea."

I thought they found noah's ark on top of mount arat in turkey?????????? 528630[/snapback] Even if they really did the monks wouldn't let anyone do anything to it..... experts say that it's a rock formation but the sat pics do look interesting.... and there's a story somewhere of a gentleman that had gone up into the mountain with the monks and actually saw a ship nestled between two rocks with the bow sticking out (that's what the sat pics show apparently)........ and the fact that there are giant fossilized scallops high up in the Andes kinda leaves the possibilty that there may have been a ...

Hmm, that may or may not be it. I'd be going more with Turkey, it was a global flood caused not just by rain but by several global meteorite hits into the ocean causing several tsunami's THEN, the global rain came, and during that time, and after it there was global climatic changes which resulted in an Ice Age 'the water turned to ice'.

Sadly we may never trully uncover the truth behind the ark no matter how hard we try!

Almost certainly the ice age and the subsequent great flood mentioned in Genesis was as a result of astral mechanics and things we havnt seen yet.

The bible is a kind of code book and has to be decoded. There are different sorts of ark (or arcs) There are also several different Noah/flood stories too including two Greek ones, Deukalion and.... Jason and the Argonauts. Turns out that Argo is another ark or arc as is th... [More]

The article has nothing to do with any search for the ark. It relates to the flooding event that turned the Black Sea from a freshwater lake to a salty sea connected to the Mediterranean. Some believe this event was the inspiration for numerous flood myths of which the Biblical account is only one. One of the clinchers for this theory would be the rate at which the flooding occured. Slow, over a long time period would be evidence against this. It seems this is the type of evidence they're looking for. Again, nothing to do with the ark, Mt Ararat or Zodiacal precession. It's much more interesti... [More]
