"While Christians who take the Bible at face value don't doubt the possibility of discovering the remains of Noah's Ark, caution ought to be the order of the day, a Southern Baptist seminary professor said."

Personnally I think its a bunch of crap all of it, stories made up to tell kids. We should just let this drop, its a waste of good money. There are tons more religieus stories like this, some even better, so why havent the others been investigated yet? Cuz there are no good ''naturel coincidences'' based on those stories, like the Noahs Ark one. I mean come on, a guy builds a boat and takes a whole zoo with him and seeds the whole world (or however the story goes like) Yeah sounds really true to me. No offence meant this message, just my opinion I like to share.

First off, there is a possibility the Ark is on that Aramat mount. or whatever it's called. Also as far as the Ark of Convenant-I had read a story that I can't find now that was a guy saying he had dug for over 10 yrs. and found he Ark but after he found it, he decided to leave it. Cuz God says it won't be revealed until the End times. Yet there I've seen on tv that they say it's kept in this hut like structure and is guarded all the time. So some big people are lying here!!

I actually saw this on unsolved mysteries and another man also believes he's found Noahs ark. Another witness years later claimed to see the ark in the same area. It was snowy werever it was and it looked as if the ark had split in half. They could see different levels and decks. I'll try to find a link. I honestly think it sounded more credible, but I could be wrong. Prob. Am I dunno

It is generally accepted that the Noah story originated from the early Sumerian writings involving Enlil and Enki. Even at that, there would be problems with the story. First of all, there is not enough water in the hydro-system of the earth to create a rain to cover the earth. There are, however, early writings from Greek philosophers telling of a time when some cosmic event pushed Mars close to the earth . . . . close enough for lightening bolts to pass between the planets. If that is true and it is discovered that Mars has sodium and chloride deposits, then the great flood could have occurr... [More]

That story where the ark was found as posted earlier is false. Carbon dating told it wasn't old enough to be Noah's ark.

I don't know if you have heard but, some guy with his son went on mount ararat and got some wood that was under snow cut some off and they did a test on it, it was around 5000 years old, erfect amount of time ago. but now they won't let anyone on the mountain to look for it or anything and you know why right? I'm not trying to be mean or anything but, they're musilum and they don't want people finding proof of christians God. This would prove Christians religion correct, anyone who says no means they don't wanna believe

Nope, mars and earth would have crashed together. If you believe that but don't believe there's enough rain to cover the earth then something isn't right. But you're right there isn't enough rain to cover the earth, God made the rain in the clouds to flood for 40 days and 40 nights. I'm not saying I believe it. I'm only said that there were writings of such an event and that there were some details within the writings that were interesting.

If fragments were found it would be difficult to verify it as the ark considering that we don't even know for certain what gopher wood was.

I found the article about the Ark being found very interesting... if the ‘RIBS’ and ‘RIVETS’ turn out to be REAL, that would still be a fantastic discovery... a large ancient vessel, made with composite metal rivets, could change our understanding of the civilizations on earth before the end of the last ice age, and shed some light on those lost times...
