Chinese and Turkish evangelical explorers have announced that they have found the remains of Noah’s Ark on Mt. Ararat in Turkey.
Below is an excerpt from the news release:
A group of Chinese and Turkish evangelical explorers say wooden remains they have discovered on Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey are the remains of Noah’s Ark.
The group claims that carbon dating proves the relics are 4,800 years old, meaning they date to around the same time the ark was said to be afloat. Mt. Ararat has long been suspected as the final resting place of the craft by evangelicals and literalists hoping to validate biblical stories.
Yeung Wing-Cheung, from the Noah’s Ark Ministries International research team that made the discovery, said: “It's not 100 percent that it is Noah's Ark, but we think it is 99.9 percent that this is it.”
I have blogged several times announcing that Noah’s Ark has been discovered. I was skeptic then and I am skeptic now. However that person is who is inside of the Ark (in the picture above), he is not the first one to be inside Noah’s Ark and he will not be the last.
