Noah’s Ark Found On Mount Ararat: Is this real?

Was Noah’s Ark Found on Mount Ararat? Noah’s Ark could soon be found, if one group of explorers is to be believed.

The Bible claims the ark settled on the “mountains of Ararat” in Turkey after 150 days of floods.

In 2010, a group of evangelical Christian explorers claimed to have found traces of the biblical ship on the mountain, the Daily Mail reported.

But their research was widely dismissed by experts who said it lacked real evidence.

Now a California-based “ark hunter” believes there is new evidence Mt Ararat is where the ark and its inhabitants came aground – and the new claims have received similar reception from the scientific community.

More than 100 researchers from around the world recently came together as part of a three-day international symposium on Mt Ararat and Noah’s Ark in Agrı in Turkey to see if they can find the ark’s final resting place.

“My purpose is to visit the sites around the mountain to find clues about catastrophic events in the past,” said Professor Raul Esperante from the Seventh-day Adventist Church-sponsored Geoscience Research Institute.

Their website states their mission is to “discover and share an understanding of nature and its relationship with the Biblical revelation of the Creator God”.

In 2010, a group of Chinese and Turkish evangelical explorers set out to explore the region and find the vessel’s remains.

After a few weeks, they claimed to have found wooden specimens from an ark-like structure 4000m up the mountain.

The mountain is the highest peak in Turkey, standing more than 5100 metres tall.

The team claimed they carbon dated the wood, which proved it was 4800 years old, around the time the ark is said to have been afloat.

The vessel was said to measure “300 cubits, by 50 cubits, by 30 cubits”, which translates to up to 157m long, 26m wide and 15.8m high.

Esperante is convinced this is true and requires more “rigorous, serious scientific work” in the area, writes the Express.

He has urged international investment into a full investigation.

“The result of my findings will be published in books, publications and journals, but at this point it is too early to know what we are going to find,” said Esperante.

“Once the scientific community knows about the existence of Noah’s Ark in Mt Ararat, we can make it available to the general public.”

Nicholas Purcell, a lecturer in ancient history at Oxford University told MailOnline the claims were the “usual nonsense”.

“If floodwaters covered Eurasia 12,000ft [3700m] deep in 2800BC, how did the complex societies of Egypt and Mesopotamia, already many centuries old, keep right on regardless?”

In the Bible, God, spurred by the wickedness and corruption of man, vows to send a great cleansing flood.

Deeming Noah to be the only righteous man worth saving, God commands him to build the ark, capable of saving himself, his family and a representation of the world’s animals.

When Noah has completed his task, and God has sent “two of every sort” of animal to the ark, the flood waters rise until all mountains are covered and life (except fish) is destroyed.

“Noah’s Ark, the flood is not a myth but a real incident mentioned in all holy books,” said Dr Oktay Belli from Istanbul University.

However, Dr Andrew Snelling, a young-Earth creationist with a Phd from the University of Sydney, says Mt Ararat can’t be the location of the ark because the mountain did not form until after the flood waters receded.

Although considered a historical event, most scholars and archaeologists do not believe in a literal interpretation of the ark story.

Talking after the initial claims in 2010, Mike Pitt, a British archaeologist, said the evangelical explorers had yet to produce compelling evidence.

He said: “If there had been a flood capable of lifting a huge ship 4km up the side of a mountain 4800 years ago, I think there would be substantial geological evidence for this flood around the world. And there isn’t.”

  1. And bless thy still believe in father christmas, masked by the birth of christ, and reborn a few months later for the easter bunny!!!
    commercialism gone screwy. And people fund this?

    just a sunday!!

  2. why is there no mention ofRon Wyatts wirk in the 80,S regarding this, which was pretty substantial. He should be the one who is commended for the work in which has done, all documented on you, pretty poor journalism if you ask me

  3. if the picture above of the shape of the imprint on the mountain is anything to go by its probably not as the bible describes it in detail as to size and shape it was immense in size and also oblong in shape, not ship shaped(pardon the pun) it was only made to float until the water subsided.
