Noah's Ark has Been Found!
« on: April 29, 2010, 03:35:16 AM »
Chinese and Turkish explorers claim to have found the remains of the World-Famous Noah's Ark in... eastern Turkey!1

"...the group said carbon testing had linked samples from the structure to the time of the biblical story".

According to the Christian Research Team, there was only one boat in the entire world during the period of the when Noah built his Ark.

Although, it's a welcome change of direction than the rather down-beat stories in the news lately.

I like how they don't even bother to prove the dig even exists, much less go into detail about it and do an actual investigation like such a find would merit. It's moved from outright lies, scams, and hoaxes to finding purchase in the fine journalistic standards of a British tabloid.

Funny how most young earthers will reject the carbon dating method unless it helps their cause.

It's worse than even that. There is no indication that what they found is even vaguely boat-like.

He said the structure had several compartments, some with wooden beams, believed to have housed animals. Apart from wooden specimens, the team also brought back samples including white seedling-like particles and remains of rope, which they believe were used for keeping animals.

Way to go guys...you found a farm. I am sure this will shock the world!

I know next to nothing about carbon-dating, but I doubt that wood would have endured that long (even supposing they have the event dates right). We're talking exposure to the elements on Mount Ararat, not cooped up in the bowels of a building in the Sahara.

Also, exactly what time of the Biblical story would that be? There is no solid timeline, and I doubt they found fossils of big giant half-angels with an engraved sign "WE WERE NAUGHTY SO WE DIED" right next to the site.

Yeah, I also like how they refuse to publish any photographs of the exterior, or give a location on where they found it.

It's like me saying I've found Atlantis, then refusing to actually tell any one where it is, show any exterior proof, then taking a photograph of the inside of a building in the abandoned city in Famagusta.

Only one boat in the entire world at the time?  Next, they'll be claiming that the Earth is a circle, and pics from the shuttle prove it.

The name of this group? Noah's Ark Ministries International.

Yeah, call me suspicious, but I see the slight possibility of bias and/or wishful thinking in there.

Me thinks too many creationists have had enough of getting their backsides beaten by science because it is supported by evidence, they are desperate to try and think of something of their own that they can claim as evidence, shame its not gonna work :P

I most appreciate how even if they found a literal boat where no boats ought to be found, it would still do nothing other than possibly suggest the story may have a grain of truth to it.

I thought they found it like ten years ago.  Did that one not pan out?

Funny though how the Rosetta Stone already debunked the Ark story sue to it being written during the time frame the biblical flood was ment to to have happened, the church had tried to debunk it back then in 1798 because it was written in the time the world was under water. Yet there it was written in hieroglyphics.

Myth Busted!

According to the Christian Research Team...
And there goes any credibility the story had.  Now, if an independent research team made the discovery...
