A team Evangelical Christian explorers found what they claim is the actual Noah’s ark. Yeah, like the one from the bible. The ark was re-discovered exactly where Noah left it after the great deluge, on top of the mount Ararat, in present day Turkey, except under a huge pile of snow and volcanic debris. I have to add that this is not the first time that someone does this claim, back in 2005 another expedition found Noah’s ark in Iran and it was discovered a couple of times before that in the past century.
Note: There is a video of the interior of the ark after the break with people speaking in tongues Chinese.
The team claims to have found in 2007 and 2008 seven large wooden compartments buried at 13,000 feet (4,000 meters) above sea level, near the peak of Mount Ararat. They returned to the site with a film crew in October 2009.
Many Christians believe the mountain in Turkey is the final resting place of Noah’s ark, which the Bible says protected Noah, his family, and pairs of every animal species on Earth during a divine deluge that wiped out most of humanity.
“The structure is partitioned into different spaces,” said Noah’s Ark Ministries International team member Man-fai Yuen in a statement. “We believe that the wooden structure we entered is the same structure recorded in historical accounts. … ”
The team says radiocarbon-dated wood taken from the discovery site—whose location they’re keeping secret for now—shows the purported ark is about 4,800 years old, which coincides roughly with the time of Noah’s flood implied by the Bible.
The views about the whole thing are still very polarized since there is a lot of disbelief due to past claims of the discovery of the biblical ship, even though the people from the expedition team claims, and I quote: “It’s not 100 percent that it is Noah’s ark, but we think it is 99.9 percent that this is it”.
This whole ordeal reminds me of that Shepherd Boy and the Wolf tale, remember how the shepherd used to trick nearby villagers into thinking that a wolf was attacking him and his flock? and he did it so many times that villagers didn’t believed him when it actually happened? well I think this is the case. Who knows, maybe there was more than one Noah back then. Perhaps God looked into his phone book and called all Noahs and each one had an ark (?) And perhaps that’s why there are more than one ship.

I don’t know you guys, but I am stunned by their advanced ‘knock-on-wood’ archaeological techniques. Reminds me of the ‘kick-the-tires’ technique that I use when I gonna buy a used car, two punts tell me the status of the engine, how much gas is left in the tank and how many times the owner shagged his secretary in the backseat. I’m L4M3 L337!
