Shocking Discovery: Noah’s Ark Found!

Thursday, April 19, 2012 9:04
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

(Before It's News)

Located 6,375 feet above sea level.

 

 

Why is this not a BIG story?

I’m often amazed at our lack of knowledge about history. Ordinary people are hungry for this information, yet the organizations responsible to disseminate these facts seem to have an agenda to keep us in the dark. This is especially true when it comes to our ancient human history.

I won’t hold you in suspense with this article: The Ark of Noah has been found. It’s real. I’ll describe the evidence in some detail and end with the historical and religious implications.

How it was discovered

In 1959, Turkish army captain Llhan Durupinar discovered an unusual shape while examining aerial photographs of his country. The smooth shape, larger than a football field, stood out from the rough and rocky terrain at an altitude of 6,300 feet near the Turkish border with Iran.

Capt. Durupinar was familiar with the biblical accounts of the Ark and its association with Mount Ararat in Turkey, but he was reluctant to jump to any conclusions. The region was very remote, yet it was inhabited with small villages. No previous reports of an object this odd had been made before. So he forwarded the photographic negative to a famous aerial photography expert named Dr. Brandenburger, at Ohio State University.

Brandenburger was responsible for discovering the Cuban missile bases during the Kennedy era from reconnaissance photos, and after carefully studying the photo, he concluded: “I have no doubt at all, that this object is a ship. In my entire career, I have never seen an object like this on a stereo photo.”

 

In 1960 the picture [above] was published in LIFE magazine under the heading of Noahs Ark? That same year a group of Americans accompanied Capt. Durupinar to the site for a day and a half. They were expecting to find artifacts on the surface or something that would be unquestionably related to a ship of some kind. They did some digging in the area but found nothing conclusive and announced to the anxiously waiting world that it appeared to be a natural formation.

Most of the global media turned away from the find and it became a non-story.

In 1977 Ron Wyatt visited the site. Obtaining official permission, Ron and others conducted more thorough research over a period of several years. They used metal detection surveys, subsurface radar scans, and chemical analysis — real science — and their findings were startling. The evidence was undeniable. This was the Ark of Noah.

#1 — the Visual Evidence

The first part of the survey was to examine the object and take its measurements. The shape looked like hull of a ship. One end was pointed as you would expect from bow [below: D] and the opposite end was blunt like a stern. The distance from bow to stern was 515 feet, or exactly 300 Egyptian cubits. The average width was 50 cubits. These were the exact measurements mentioned in the Bible.

On the starboard side (right) near the stern there were four vertical bulges protruding from the mud [B], at regular intervals, that were determined to be the “ribs” of the hull [see below]. Opposite to these, on the port side, a single rib [A] protrudes from the mud. You can see its curved shape very clearly. Surrounding it are more ribs, still largely buried in the mud, but visible upon close examination.

Remember that this object, if it is the Ark, is extremely old. The wood has been petrified. Organic matter has been replaced by minerals from the earth. Only the shapes and traces of the original wood remain. Perhaps this is why the expedition in 1960 was disappointed. They anticipated finding and retrieving chucks of wood, long since eroded.

From the position of the object in the middle of an obvious mudflow, it is obvious that the object slid down more than a mile from its original location. Geologists believe it was originally over 1000 feet higher in the mountain and encased in a shell of hardened mud. They think that an earthquake in 1948 cracked the mud shell and revealed the structure. This is confirmed by stories from the surrounding vallagers who tell of its “sudden appearance” around that time.

Biblical accounts of the Ark describe it as having as many as six levels. The assumed shape of the Ark seems consistent with the bulge [C] in the middle of the object. In fact, as we will soon learn, radar scans of the structure suggest that this bulge is the collapsed debris of these levels.

Although most people think of the Ark as being rectangular, that only applies to the top decks. The sleek shape of the hull is necessary to enable the huge ship to remain stable in the water and survive tremendous waves.

Path of the Ark (Boat)

According to some sites this is the direction of the flow down the mountain. So I made up a image from google earth showing the direction this may have taken. This mountain is called “Walls of Heaven”. The landing point at the top has had some significant ancient evidence found. (If you have more information about the original landing site, before it’s current day resting place, feel free to comment at the bottom)

#2 — Ground Penetrating Radar

The human eye needs to see reflected light to recognize an object. To visualize what remains below the earth, scientists use microwaves which can penetrate the ground and bounce back when they hit something solid. This technique is commonly used to locate oil and other minerals. Called Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), the apparatus us made from an antenna that transmits, then listens to receive the “echo” and prints the result on a piece of paper. The delay and strength of this echo tell the geologists how solid and at what depth the objects are under the earth.

 

The team of geologists didn’t scan the entire object. Instead, they marked out lines that crossed the object with yellow tape. Then they dragged the antenna (about the size of a lawnmower) over the lines and watched the output on the paper recorder. When they got a strong “hit” — meaning there was something solid underneath — they would record the position on the tape [above]. Later, when they made a map of the object, the tape and the location of the “hits” they realized that there was indeed a structure underneath the mud.

“This data does not represent natural geology. These are man made structures. These reflections are appearing too periodic… too periodic to be random in that type of natural pace.” — Ron Wyatt of SIR Imaging team

The radar cans revealed this structure [above] under the mud. The symmetry and logical placement of these objects shows that this is unmistakably a man made structure, most likely the Ark of Noah.

#3 — Artifacts retrieved from the Ark

Using the GPR, Ron Wyatt discovered an open cavity on the starboard side. He used an improvised drill to make core sample inside this cavity and retrieved several very interesting objects. Below you can see the artifacts which were sent for laboratory analysis. On the left is the bore hole [see below], followed by what turned out to be petrified animal dung, then a petrified antler and lastly a piece of cat hair.

Even more amazing artifacts were found

Perhaps the most significant find from the Ark itself is a piece of petrified wood. When this was first found it appeared to be a large beam. But upon closer examination it is actually three pieces of plank that have been laminated together with some kind of organic glue! This is the same technology used in modern plywood. Lamination makes the total strength of the wood much greater than the combined strength of the pieces. This suggests a knowledge of construction far beyond anything we knew existed in the ancient world.

Tests by Galbraith Labs in Knoxville, Tennessee, showed the sample to contain over 0.7% organic carbon, consistent with fossilized wood. The specimen was once living matter.

Examination reveals the glue oozed from the layers. The outside of the wood appears to have been coated with bitumen.

Even more surprising were laboratory analyses which not only revealed that the petrified wood contained carbon (proving it was once wood) but there were iron nails [above right] embedded in the wood!

In Genesis 6:14, God told Noah to “make yourself an ark of gopher wood.”

“Gopher wood” is a misreading and scribal error. “Kopher” wood is correct and means wood (any wood) that is covered with Kopher. Kopher is bitumen. In the Genesis text (6:14), the context is clear. The GPR wood used, (a scribal error) is to be covered in KPR. G and K in Hebrew are so similar that inexperienced Hebrew “scholars,” such as those translating the King James Version of the Bible, could have been prone to such errors, indeed, they made many such errors.

Acts 7: 45 & Hebrews 4: 8 are classic examples of such scribal errors.

gpr = “g,” as in gopher, k pr = “k,”as in kopher Pictured right is a simple visual comparison of the letters.

We like to imagine that humanity evolved in a neat sequence of eras, each named after the technology that was discovered. We have the Stone Age (where man developed arrows and stone tools), the Bronze Age (where metals were combined and heated to make tools and household items) and lastly the Iron Age (where iron and steel objects were made by heating iron ore and adding other material — like charcoal — to strengthen it). The Iron Age is usually placed at 1200-1000 BC, yet we have iron nails being used in this extremely old construction

But wait… there’s more!

The most surprising find was discovered with sensitive metal detectors. The team located several strong “hits” that, when dug up, revealed large disc shaped rivets. From simple observation of the metal it was possible to see where the rivet had been hammered after being inserted through a hole [below].

If rivets being used in ancient construction doesn’t impress you, this surely will.

An analysis of the metal used to make the rivets revealed that they were a combination of iron (8.38%), aluminum (8.35%) and titanium (1.59%). Remember these trace metals have survived petrification and so do not indicate the exact content in the original material. (see Report from Galbraith Labs)

We know the aluminum was incorporated in the metallic mixture because it does not exist in metallic form in nature. This implies an extremely advanced knowledge of metallurgy and engineering. Characteristics of an iron-aluminum alloy have been investigated in The Russian Chemical Bulletin (2005) and reveal that this alloy forms a thin film of aluminum oxide which protects the material from rust and corrosion. The addition of titanium would provide added strength. This seems to have worked. The rivets have survived from antiquity!

    So why is it shocking? Jesus proved Himself over and over and over again. Had it recorded in the Holy Bible which is the most printed book of all time in all languages. He walked on water, healed the sick and raised the dead. Foretold His own life and death thousands of years before it happened, with great detail. So why on earth is it shocking to discover the remnants of Noah’s Ark? As if the Bible needs to proven with artifacts, Duh!

    Read the latest from Jesus at Prophecies.org, most profound prophecy on the web.

    • Louis

      Without the ark built by Noah, none of the posters below that are ridiculing the ark, would be alive to ridicule it. That ark saved the lives eight people — Noah and his wife, and their three sons and their wives. After the flood waters deluged the earth, those eight human beings were the only human beings left alive on earth, and all future generations of Homo sapiens descended from them.

    • miranda

      The reason is it shocking is that God intended for none of his creations to be found. He wanted it to be hidden so that we would choose the believe in him based on the sole fact because we CHOOSED. Not because we were convinced. The fact that we know find mroe and more evidence of his existence just shows that he is making it to our knowledge so we know that he is coming. The end is near, and it does say in the Bible that more and more things will be found, will be happening, and more freedoms will come into play. Look at the world!!! Especially these past couple years, look at what we have been through. Not just politics. But in weather, human rights, or enemies and foes, and the media.. as well as the cold hard facts like noahs ark being found, the bones of nephilims, and many more artifacts he has left for us to realize and LOOK around.

    • Sean

      I looked at the website, since i made it a habit around 10 years ago to read people’s comments and websites someone might mention, i do agree on this one.

      http://prophecies.org/DOCS/Book%2012/Chapter48.htm#Part2

      But i have said for quite sometime Obama is not a Muslim, but Jewish, thats not even his real Mother , let alone his real Father.

      But, he is not the Anti-christ..my Guess is Prince William..where 2 billion people watched his wedding..to be crowned king on his 33rd birthday in the re-built temple of solomon.

      But what they all really are is a RH Negative Blood Type, including Obama, Hitler, Mao, Bush, McCain, FDR, Churchill, Stalin, Putin, al-Sisi, al-Saud, Prince Charles, Prince William, etc.

      Serpent Seed Bloodline, with Demonic Souls/Spirits or just Reptilian Bloodline with demonic Souls/Spirits..guess either will do, just the same.

      Anyway, Mark..here is something interesting or maybe not, what is the only Major Religion throughout History that does not have the Swastika as its Symbol. When you find out, you just might find what religion Jesus really was

      Jesus was Hung, not Crucified by the Romans.

      That is not Noah’s Ark.

      How could Noah fit 2 of every Animal on Earth onto the Ark, by saving just their DNA !

      People who do not believe God is real are going to find they are Very Wrong, God is the Universe..why else would they be looking for the “God Particle” with this Super Collider.

    The story of Noah’s ark is common to indigenous people worldwide. The Sioux knew the story, before contact with Europeans. The date is 30,000 years ago, not 3000. Although God is very real for this commentator, the Bible contains much plagiarism.

    My goodness some of the religious apologists are fanatics for stupidities and the most insane theories. Complete insanity. “god” does not and never has existed. Whenever someone has an experience from beyond the veil they automatically put it down to god because they have no other explanation and so they iterate the only thing they have been taught by other religious extremists.

      God does exist whether you believe it or not is irrelevant. There is more scientific evidence that He does exist.

      • Anonymous

        There is no scientific evidence that anyone’s god has ever existed. Of course religious people want us atheists to prove god doesn’t exist which is completely impossible. Its impossible to prove that something that doesn’t exist, doesn’t exist. Prove to me unicorns don’t exist.

      wow.. you really are ignorant.. please explain to me how you KNOW god doesnt exist. YOU exist. WHY do you exist? Because God gave you the blessing of life. EXPLAIN to me how science creates a mind? a soul? science is gods way of helping those people like you, understand how you are actually living.. but your mind? science doesnt create a conscience. can you see the mind? can you see your conscience? open your eyes.. youd really be surprised if you could actually learn about something FIRST before criticizing it. Go there.. even if you dont believe, itll help you see the things that you obviously arent comprehending. http://www.proofthatgodexists.org/

      • Man

        just explain what you mean what god is. since there are so many version of it. Do you need to make a mind or soul to disprove god?

        A mind a creation of the brain, just step into an MRI scanner and you know what the mind does.

        A soul is such an unknown what it is i don’t even know where it is located in the body or what it does.

        conscience part of our morals which is basically societal rules. or do you think that babies have no morals before they learn how to read the bible?

    Religion is just a way to place the blame of good and bad. When humans don’t know something or is out of their grasp of understanding they need to make something up to make them feel better about why something happens. The bible along with all other religious book have a significant importance but I believe the are not being interpreted the way the were meant.

    Insight of Noah’s Ark upon the mountain. – In the end of days I will bring back!

    For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
    21 because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
    22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

    This scripture is for all the people that foolishly think ‘there is no god’.

    Aside from the fact that if it’s 3k or 30k years, the site would have been buried long ago and become just another part of the stratum and NOT sitting there to be found. Come on people, did no one take geology ?

    Very interesting news. But, if we are going to call is discovery, Noah’s Ark, we best go to the scriptures that specify its dimensions. Upon doing this we will have the Biblical dimensions of this ark. Noah’s ark as described in the text of the Genies scriptures, was not the shape of this Turkish site. The shape of the original ark was without bow or stern, without any bow or stern steering or navigating rutter, didn’t need any of this for navigating its course. Yes, Noah’s Ark was a gigantic chest, constructed in such a way from its length, width, and height, that it would not turn over, but rather remain upright. Noah’s Ark was a floating hallow chest, not in the form of so many paintings and illustrations as having the ark looking like a ship. Discovery Channel and National Geographic Channel, have both done scientific tests using the chest-like biblical dimensions of Noah’s Ark to show how no matter what the size of the waves, the arks construction interacted with the waves much like a cork. So as exciting as this discovery is, by is represented dimensions, this is not Noah’s Ark.

  • pattiesimmons

    just throwing this out here>
    If it’s not the ark then exactly what is it? Inasmuch as this may be old news to some I find it fascinating. I am not a geologist but I know it takes many millenia for wood to become petrified.
    Now I may also not be the brightest bulb in the pack either but why would the ark have to be whole? It was a vessel for the safety and transport of man and beast and nothing more. When Noah and his family released the animals and came upon dry land the ark was not needed after that. God did not sanctify it. It was used for it’s purpose and then left to be reabsorbed back into the earth.
    The simple FACT there are flood stories in virtually every religion and within the mythos of every race of people seems to indicate that at some time in the distant past there WAS some kind of global catastrophe.
    Believe in God, don’t believe in God, the choice is yours and should be repected by others. When however, you start to belittle others because they don’t agree with you then you are wrong.
    Just remember this:
    Nobody’s right if everybody’s wrong.
    Peace and Blessings to you all.

    This is why it has not been reported> Google:
    NOAH’S ARK – Verification of Alien Contact
    The Great Flood and Noah’s Ark legend is common to the Christian, Jewish and Moslem religions. But as often occurs with religious beliefs, few have analyzed the Ark’s nautical restrictions. Instead, a common belief exists that it was a simple rectangular vessel built by a single man and his extended family. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Ark’s relic has been found (and re-found time and again) in the mountains of Ararat. Matching biblical parameters, it was 64% longer than any modern wooden vessel and had an (unloaded) displacement greater than that of a modern British aircraft carrier.

    Government (Los Alamos) personal, once helpful with tests and measurements of it, no longer believe this relic to be Noah’s Ark. No wonder, it clearly shows that it was NOT built by humans ~5200 years ago. It offers details of alien engineering principles involving the Golden Ratio. Its metallurgy shows ironwork not even possible until ~3200 years ago as well as the presence of other metals (e.g. titanium and aluminum) that would have been difficult to fabricate even in the early twentieth century. The Book of Noah explicitly specifies that “angels” (with extensive metallurgical skills) built the Ark. They were likely the Nommos, an amphibian species reportedly from the Sirius star system. They left mankind with cuneiform writing and the wheeled vehicle (alien technology of that day). They offered us astronomical knowledge of their own and our solar system (including Vulcan) and evidence of a past major comet/meteorite Earth impact. Finally, they appear to have left repositories of technologies far more advanced than our own. Their story tells of an alien species’ attempt to save a deceitful mankind from an approaching comet impact catastrophe that caused Noah’s Great Flood. Apprehensively, they may have recently returned to again warn us of a similar impending impact event.

    Noah’s Ark? Time to grow up people. If you think a dude thousands of years ago gathered up 2 of every animal on earth and put ‘em on a friggin’ boat, your concept of reality needs a do-over.

    • Anonymous

      Acutally, Noah did not need to go out and gather all the animals 2 by 2. All the animals came to the ark by themselves. I know its hard to explain that, just like scientists have not been able to explain the migratory birds and the salmon. The migratory birds just up and fly when its time for their vacation (how to you explain that?). The salmon, no matter where they born, they always go back to lay their eggs and die!!!

      God did not flood the entire earth — only the part inhabited by humans. Since the rest of the world was not flooded, creatures (such as kangaroos) living beyond the reach of the flood survived.

    • Prudence Wright

      Funny thing you should mention that people’s “concept of reality needs a do-over”…in the 1930′s they DID do a reality do-over. In the 1920′s & 1930′s several major things got changed. 13 books of the old testament (but Jews did not change there’s) were removed, the words under God were added to our pledge of allegiance, alcohol was banned and once that failed within 2 years they banned marijuana. So you see for almost 2000 years reality stayed the same, and it has been an ongoing “do-over” for the past 80+ years………just some are not going to accept this warped reality……but please by all means you go ahead. It really is hard to determine what is fact and fiction when the AP nightly news can’t keep a story straight from one day to the next…..

    This IS NOT Noah’s Ark. In 300 AD having just been converted to Christianity Emperor Constantine commissioned “an Ark” to be built at the foot of Mount Ararat along the Silk road. THIS is that Ark.
    This Ark is over fifteen miles away from Mount Ararat, and it is right on the Silk road. I know, I have been there and done the research on it, there.

    Oh by the way, it can not be a cube. If it was a cube it would spin uncontrollably. Cubes are not stable in water.
    Noah’s Ark does exist, it is not far from the Ahora Gorge.

    People make me laugh , especially those who follow religion. Billions on the planet are religious and blindly believing but when they are confronted with evidence of what they have believed in for years, they call it shocking, disturbing, frightening,unbelievable or it scares them to death. Surely these finds should be taken as confirmation at last and that they havnt been wasting their time and faith on believing in something thats nonsense

      It’s okay. This is your stand. But hey do think about it, if heaven and hell didn’t exit and we die, we gain or lose nothing. But if heaven and hell did exist and eternity did exist. What next? If you don’t live the right way and live according to what god wants, you’re going to be in hell. Why take the risk or spending eternity in hell? Peace sis :)

    Yeah, it would be shocking if it was true. That this is a royal hoax is in the shape of the Ark. Any historian/archeologist worth their salt should know, without any difficulty, that the vessel didn’t have a pointed front or rear. The Ark was rectangular in shape. Whoever came up with the shape being shown didn’t get that shape from the Bible, if they would actually read it.

    All previous sightings on the mountain in Turkey as far back as WWI didn’t even indicate this location OR pointed shape. Whatever happen to that evidence and the eyewitness reports in those instances? Likely they were scrapped for a more “convenient truth”, acceptable to the fable ridden masses. After all, the pointy ended boat is what has been taught by feeble minded teachers and institutions like the churches who’ve not had a clue what the Bible really teaches, from the beginning. So why would anyone expect these so called authorities to get this right.

    Could this “find” be a vessel of some kind? Sure it could, but it isn’t the Ark. What these searchers need to do is to redirect their efforts back upon the much older evidence and work with the Turkish government to do some real and thorough research and hunting for the real Ark instead of wasting their time and money on this garbage.

    Sorry if this sounds like a downer but the “authorities” in this area are the same ones (collectively)who still have Jesus being impaled on a “cross” instead of an upright stake as the Scriptures have always indicated or that Jesus was born on December 25th or any other of the numerous errors that are purported as the “truth”.

    Here’s a really good lie that has been passed down by the “authorities”. When Moses parted the Red Sea (which they also doubt happened how and in the time limit indicated in the Bible), the Scriptures tell that Pharaoh died when the Sea closed back over him and his army. The “authorities” state that he didn’t die at all. Even Egyptian archeologists get this wrong, showing what is supposed to be the Pharaoh who chased Moses, that is, Pharaoh’s mummified remains.

    It’s beyond the ability for people to question the “authorities” in matters like this. The “authorities” have done a thorough job in molding the minds of the masses to their every whim, about details of all kinds. Is it any wonder the masses are so ignorant of what is the truth and what isn’t these days, when their brains have been so filled up with such utter garbage???

  • HereAmI

    Re. the Ark’s shape. It was never described in the Bible as “pointy ended”, which some here seem to think. Read Genesis ch7 v15. The structure is given dimensions, but its shape is not defined.
    This may or may not be Noah’s ark, in fact I have seen YouTube video of a Japanese expedition that found what seemed to be a better candidate; they even got inside it. I think it had emerged from a glacier in the same region. But perhaps that was the one made by Constantine, which I had never heard about before. “No es Loco” tells us that the real Ark does exist,”not far from the Ahora Gorge”, but then goes all shy. Spill the beans, dude! London mystic thinks that this discovery is…I won’t repeat all his synonyms, but I cannot find any evidence that anyone is anything other than excited and intrigued by this find. Someone else thinks that the Bible contains much plagiarism. One piece of proof please? It is the other way around, the Bible is source material, which others may well have modified and added to their own creations, eg Mohammed and the Q’uran. Sten should remember that “The fool has said in his heart, there is no God”.
    Anon’s brief comment was good, ie how did the marsupials get to Australia if they originally emerged from the Ark? And why aren’t they anywhere else in the world ? There are questions we do not have answers for, but rest assured, there are answers, and they will amaze us all when we find out.
    If that sounds a trifle facile, think on this. If you read “The Other Bible Code” website, by Vernon Marshall, he reveals the astonishing and perfect three-dimensional mathematics which underlies the Word of God. This is invisible unless you look for it, but it is there, and it is throughout every verse in the Bible, like a watermark, in all 66 books. This simply cannot be explained except in this way; that holy men of old wrote as they were moved by the Spirit of God, and not by their own imaginations.
    The worldwide cataclysm which came upon the children of men at that time was enabled because of a clue given in Genesis ch 1 vv 6,7. There we are told that there are waters above the heavens, as well as below. We tend to think that the only waters are those in the oceans, but clearly, they also exist “above the firmament” too. These enabled the whole world to be drowned, exactly as we are told.
    And finally, remember that “As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the days of the Son of Man”. Few are any wiser today than they were then; few believe that the Lord will return to judge the quick and the dead, but this is going to happen, and soon. If you look at “The Daniel Timeline” website, you will see it argued very powerfully that He will return on the 3rd Oct 2016. “Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets”. Amos 3 v7.
    Noah knew when the Flood was coming, he entered the Ark seven days before the rain began….

      I was under the impression that Jesus was the Son of God, who then sent him down to earth to die for humanity’s sins…?

      It seems silly if you think about it with out getting all ass ended about religion. Why would God sacrifice his child in a horrific manner just to make it so humans sins are redeemable? Do not say it is because we are so much more special then Jesus. If you go by the bible then we are all sinners at birth because 2 people ate an apple.. So then for the rest of time humans are to be punished for it? Loving and forgiving God indeed. Most of the old testament shows he was not very loving if all accounts are correct, even makes a man kill is own child. This is not love, it is manipulation.

    For those who are interested, Noah’s Ark was not actually an Ark at all. There was a natural dissater in Russia several millennia earlier that may have resulted in ‘en masse’ human transportation. No evidence of transportation or casualties has been found.

    But back to Noah, his was an account of the first temple structure of its type. It was a wooden construction with and air light above an “ever burning” fire. Many different compatments or “rooms” were for the numerous animals used for ritual sacrafice. Oh yeah, Noah sure “saved” them animals.

    Only question remains is, was there a compartment for the Goyim?

    While this is a decades old “discovery”, it is the very ancient remains of an ocean-going vessel.

    Ron Wyatt was a brilliant man and did some very scholarly work. I have looked at most of this material before and accept that this could be Noah’s ark.

    It could also be a pre-flood ship that sunk before the flood waters subsided. But it’s at 6,300 feet elevation, so if it’s not pre-flood, how the heck did it get up there?

    The Bible says the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat. It doesn’t say on Ararat itself. This lends credibility to the location of this vessel as being the ark itself.

    For those of you who don’t want to believe, I would encourage you to keep an open mind. Objectivity is a positive character trait.

    Oh crap. Not more of that old religious blx about the ark being found. First of all “Religion is a MAN MADE construct for the control of idiots who could not read and write. “Jesus” is a load of old bolx as well. The first stories about him did not even get written until 130 yrs AFTER he was supposed to have existed that fact alone proves it is BS.

    “Walked on water” no evidence.
    “Raised the dead” no proof.
    “Healed the sick” my doctor does that all the time.
    Did not foretell his “own” death because the stories about him did not appear till 130 AFTER he died (allegedly)

  • yuan

    it is funny how many are not believing the existence of God. They want physical proof. Just as the same as Noah’s days, all of the people around did not believe that there will be flood. We are here, believers of Christ, to tell everyone of His offer of salvation.

    We cant do anything if these people do not believe at all. It is written, only few will be saved. So I, by the grace of God, am saved.

    It is written on the bible, the history(proven happened), the current events(are happening), and the future(will definitely happen).

    Lol everything said in the Bible has been happening and till this day hasn’t been proven false. Even children can see how obviously true the Bible is. How much more prove do you need and don’t get me started on how much science doesn’t know hahahaha. Either way God says there are those who chose not to believe. Love all y’all and be blessed :)

  • evidenceatlast

    TYPE ” best evidence of noah’s ark mt ararat” into youtube

  • guyonearth

    This is nothing but nonsense. Come on, people. This is a simple rock formation, not an ark. The ridges of rock all around it that follow the same pattern should be a giveaway (aside from the fact that Noah and his ark are a myth). This is obviously a rock formation that wore down over millions of years. The stories of a worldwide flood are merely distant racial memories of the flooding that would have occurred at the end of the last glaciation, around 11,000 years ago, at the very dawn of civilization. The story of the ark itself is borrowed heavily from the Gilgamesh epic which is thousands of years older than the Biblical stories.

    Whoever wrote this article seems to lack a 7th grade understanding of chemistry, since first of all, aluminum and iron don’t alloy. Aluminum would be a poor material for fasteners, and aluminum can not be smelted from rock. The modern method of producing aluminum requires huge amounts of electricity and complex chemical reactions. The method wasn’t even invented till 1886. There was also no iron smelting technology around at the time Noah would have lived, which was the early bronze age. It’s also technically impossible to build wooden boats this size. At the pinnacle of wooden shipbuilding technology in the late 19th century, it was not possible to build wooden ships approaching 400 feet that would work reliably, even with massive iron bracing, they flexed too much and leaked. We’re supposed to believe a nomadic bronze age herder and his three sons with no shipbuilding experienced managed to build a ship bigger than any wooden ship of modern times with hand tools and no shipyard? And that this ark somehow held all the millions of species of animals for a year, along with enough food as well? What did they eat when they landed, since the Earth would have been completely barren of all life? After a year under water, all plants and seeds would have been destroyed. This is all academic, because there isn’t nearly enough water on or in the Earth to create a flood that would cover the whole world. If there was such a “flood”, it would never recede, and the Earth would remain a water planet.

    The whole ark myth is completely implausible from any scientific standpoint, and intelligent Christians know it…which is why some of them have to come up with elaborate provisos to make the story work. I wonder if Christians who actually believe any of this nonsense have any ability to think for themselves at all.

  • Tom

    Oh come on! How do you fit all the animals there? If theres an old boat fount in some mountain, what makes you believe it “The Noah´s Arc”? How about that some guy just wanted build a big boat. And its not that big after all.

    It’s true! .. This is the real deal folks. Thanks to the perseverance of Ron Wyatt for having the courage to persevere and follow his heart. And of course thanks to our loving Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ for their love for all mankind. The truth will be revealed soon. I think it will be sooner than later in my humble opinion. The world has become an extremely wicked place. All you have to do is look around to see that man is ripe with iniquity. Hollywood and the music industry are satan worshipping slaves blatently flogging their beliefs. The government has been infiltrated and taken over by the power hungry elite. The world is in a very sorry state .. much like the times of Sodom and Gomorrah. I look forward to the Millennium and the 1000 year reign of Christ. Just my 2 cents :)

    Nothing shocking, we’ve known for years. It’s a tourist attraction, there’s even a building to view it from. What’s shocking is how people would shocked by just finding out now.

  • Callengreen

    Shock? Not for me personally, but for those who don’t pay close attention. Yes, quite a shock for far too many.
    Implications are that we can count on our ancient writing much more so than many would want.
    Why would many not want authentication of those writings?
    Because we live in a system of control. A system that desires and demands blind obedience and absolute allegiance to that system, so those at the helm of that system can enrich themselves at the expense of others. When the prophet Hosea wrote (4:6) “my people suffer from a lack of knowledge.” His words are still proven true today. The Creator is not about blind obedience of speculative limp-wristed drivel from milk-toast men in monkey suits and pulpits. He is about love and knowledge, and dissemination of that knowledge to the benefit of those who would get off their butts and out of the pews to seek it. “Come, let us REASON together, says The Lord. Too many are happy with being told a fairy tale, delegating their own responsibility to acquire knowledge to some “duly elected” preacher.
    Many shout “The end is near.” End? No, it’s really just the beginning. Dark, awful days certainly will be seen first, and many will suffer and perish, but it’s the beginning of a time when the shackles of slavery that imprison us all (to one degree or the next) are finally broken and destroyed for the good of the whole world. This is why the powers that currently be, liars and thieves as they are, would suppress things that prove the truth. When he returns, It’ll be as a conquering KING.
    And indeed, this is why he came the first time.
    “The thief doth not come, except that he may steal, and kill, and destroy; I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.- Yashua Messiah (circa 30AD)

    excerpts from Romans 1:

    “… the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse…”

    “…even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient…”

    It didn’t occur to some of the faithful, here, that God can be literal.

    We read that there will be signs and wonders, toward the End Times.

    Once the Restrainer is removed, how does carnal man react? He curses and blasphemes.

    We read of an Edenic existence, during the Millennial Reign. But, Satan would still deceive people.

    Peoples’ everyday stubbornness isn’t going to be fixed by curiosities from life science or Biblical archeology.

    You will probably won’t know that you’ve hit a nerve, until you get a negative overreaction, every bit as fierce as the persecution of the Biblical prophets.

    Think of the Egyptians, who saw wonders, and still chased the Jews into the sea.

    Some of us even like to imagine that people outside the Ark repented, at the last minute, but that’s not human nature.

    This is a fine article on the Noah’s Ark find. Here is a reason it will not get wide spread recognition however.

    NOAH’S ARK – Verification of Alien Contact

    There are two other good articles about this find also.

    NOAH’S VESSEL 24,000 DEADWEIGHT TONS

    http://www.barry.warmkessel.com/windsor2.html
    NOAH’S ARK IT’S GEOMETRY

    These last two were written by Sam Windsor, a professional ship builder.

    The real hero’s of the Noah’s Ark find speak, Fasold, Windsor, Patton and Wyatt.

    http://www.keelynet.com/interact/archive/00001782.htm
    David Fasold – in memoriam (early 1998)
    “I really felt bad for him, to have spent about $300,000 of his own money and to see so much of it not coming back to him. He also said it was causing a lot of friction and hardship with his family and David was very conscientious of his responsibilities and family from what I knew of him.
    David also said he was planning to fly down to Australia where some TV network had also ripped off his work and he was suing for damages. I was very pleased to hear he was finally getting something back on his investment, even though not in the exact way he intended. ”

    He was rebuffed by the Australian courts as he was unaware that he was dealing with an alien artifact and the governments closely allied with the USA wished its discovery to be suppressed.

    In my opinion, the real villains of this truly great find is:

    Government (Los Alamos) personal, once helpful with tests and measurements of it, no longer believe this relic to be Noah’s Ark. No wonder, it clearly shows that it was NOT built by humans ~5200 years ago. It offers details of alien engineering principles involving the Golden Ratio. Its metallurgy shows ironwork not even possible until ~3200 years ago as well as the presence of other metals (e.g. titanium and aluminum) that would have been difficult to fabricate even in the early twentieth century. The Book of Noah explicitly specifies that “angels” (with extensive metallurgical skills) built the Ark. They were likely the Nommos, an amphibian species reportedly from the Sirius star system. They left mankind with cuneiform writing and the wheeled vehicle (alien technology of that day). They offered us astronomical knowledge of their own and our solar system (including Vulcan) and evidence of a past major comet/meteorite Earth impact. Finally, they appear to have left repositories of technologies far more advanced than our own. Their story tells of an alien species’ attempt to save a deceitful mankind from an approaching comet impact catastrophe that caused Noah’s Great Flood. Apprehensively, they may have recently returned to again warn us of a similar impending impact event.

  • Farallonwhites

    Did they find dinosaur bones near it?

    • yes2truth

      No, the dinosaurs did not die out instantaneously. They were killed by weather.

      Weather was unknown in the pre-flood world so only the strongest and most robust creatures survived for long after the flood.

    Wow, so it´s real! Then Noah was real, then for sure he also condemned his son Cam and all his descendants to slavery because he saw him naked! And god approved this. So, yes, the messed up world we live in would make sense with such deranged saviors and a raving mad God.

    • yes2truth

      Yes it’s real, only the name is Canaan, not Cam and he was not Noah’s son.

      Canaan was the son of Noah’s wife Naamah through her incestuous relaltionship with her son Ham. This is why Canaan was cursed by Noah.

      Ham knew his father’s nakedness:

      Leviticus 18:8 (KJV) The nakedness of thy father’s wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy father’s nakedness.

      Leviticus 20:11 (KJV) And the man that lieth with his father’s wife hath uncovered his father’s nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

      The descendants of this union primarily The Canaanite Jews are the reason the world we live in is all messed up (your words).

      http://isthefathercallingyoutohisson.wordpress.com/

      http://yes2faith.wordpress.com/

      • Mariano

        No, It was Cam, and Canaan (his son) received the curse as did all his descendants and that´s why Jacob is told to go outside Canaan to get a wife.

        And yes, God was a lunatic all over the old testament, allowing slavery and forcing slaves to have sons with their masters, making people sacrifice animals, allowing Lot to get raped by her daughters, allowing Ismael to go without blessed just because he was the son of a servant and a long list of crazy stuff like bigamy or confusing humans just because they were doing great, like in the case of Babel.

        No, the reason the world is messed up is because many like you allow a completely anti human book such as the Genesis to lead their lives.

      • Mariano

        Don´t know where you get your ideas from, but in Genesis says that Noah had three sons Jafet, Cam and Sem. Noah was drunk on the grapes he reaped after the flood and was lying naked on his tent. Cam saw him naked and after that his son Canaan and all his descendants were cursed. Don´t try to pull any interpretational juggling. Especially no as God opposing incest, which he didn´t. Lot was raped successfully by his two daughters. And between Jacob, Isaac, Abraham, their children wives and all their slaves, there has been more sex than a Rocco Siffredi movie.

      • yes2truth

        3 questions for you.

        1) What Bible translation do you use?

        2) Where did Canaan come from when there were only eight people that got on and off the Ark?

        3) Why did Noah curse Canaan?

      • Mariano

        Question for you

        How did Jafet and Sem had their children then? Cause they had plenty, actually Abraham descents from Sem.

        Clearly it says (in any version) the three sons of Noah boarded the ark with their wives. So, that seeing his father naked doesn´t mean he had sex with his mother.

        Plus, god is not against incest cause everyone did their sisters and brothers back in the day of Adam and Eve and their offspring. Plus again, God didn´t put a curse on Lot´s daughters for raping him, neither he did on Moab or Ben Ahmi, the offspring of that incestuous relationship.

        I love to read the bible, is full of madness, and only a black hearted person can today take the old testament in his bosom.

    Because Noah didn’t take all species into the Ark. He only took his household, which included his wife, son’s, their wives, and Noah’s animals. God destroyed all the rest of life, except Noah’s household.

    Not all species in evidence today, were in the Ark. The answer to this question should be obvious to all.

  • Dreamwalker

    The Holy Ark is what the Jews call the chests containing their Bible or their book of laws.
    Noahs Ark contained the laws or commandments of Noah. The story of clean and unclean animals tells you what to eat and not to eat. It just tells you what the covenant said was healthy food for you. In a sense of becoming what you eat, it also tells you how to behave.

    Some scientists claim that the great pyramids chamber fits this ark or chest. suggesting this was the mountain to climb. This mountain still stands and put the theory of evolution to a test. A fall of mankind and their consioussness and an ark of a covenant of rules to guide us back to a higher state. Its like we have been drowned to a consiousness of fish in pieces to find our way to see a man with a pither who will pour out the water. Then we will understand what happened.

    • Dreamwalker

      Then comes Jesus and says its not what you put in your mouth but what comes out. At same time he casts demons out of the wicked and the evil took house in the swine. It put up a big question to Peter, he never ate unclean animals. Then Saul(Paul) says you can eat what you want and behave like swine, cause Jesus took away all sins. It went from Adam & Eve not eating meat to clean animals, then all animals. Now they are just burgers and hot dogs and most dont even question it.

  • chefjim

    Even though I like the content of this story, this is very old news. It has been pushed down and covered up since it was released because the evil principalities control most of what the masses see and believe via the mainstream media.

  • Kirby

    There is an actual site further up with much better documentation presented roughly 30 years ago and moderated by Gavin McCleod (SP – ?). The DVD presented eyewitness accounts from over 400 years B.C. up to photos and so on of present day. This photo site is so obviously and blatantly a fake that only Walt Disney studios might give it their seal of approval.

    The Muslim nations commonly set up phony archeological sites that have fooled people for many decades. The original Mt. Sinai is a case in point and terribly fraudulent. Again, another DVD presentation shows the real site that meets ALL Biblical requirements for authenticity.

    I came here initially hoping to find what today’s satellite technology would present. This photo here is pathetic and looks like piles of rock set up for a Looney Tunes TV spot.

    There are many amateurish sites set up by Muslim nations to deflect attention from far more authentic ones. I can’t believe people actually buy into these fake ones. With today’s heavily and obvious leftists atheist bias, I wouldn’t be surprised if they were involved in the cover-ups.

    As someone else commented below, the Biblical ark was not pointed at both ends. All model mock-ups and photo evidence clearly show the more practical (space requirements) shape of a rectangular box. Only a Muslim nation would be so obvious in setting up their own fraud.
