Noah’s Ark has been found! Noah’s Ark has been found!

Look what we found!

Well, score one for the Christians [and Jews, I suppose].

And might I say, it’s about time!

I mean seriously, I’ve been hearing since I was a kid that Noah’s Ark was on top of a mountain in Turkey and that the only reason we hadn’t found it yet was because of the mean ole Muslims who hated Noah’s God.

Well, alas, it’s been found! Or that’s what a group of Chinese and Turkish evangelical explorers are saying. I know, it’s crazy, huh? Apparently, there are Chinese and Turkish evangelicals. I had no idea.

This right here is where the pandas slept. It still smells like pandas.

You’d certainly think they’d have more pictures, huh?

Anyway, according to the article, 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.”

Well, when the odds are 99.9 to .01, you might as well go ahead and say that you’re absolutely sure, Mr. Wing-Cheung.

And you gotta love the name of their ministry: Noah’s Ark Ministries. Is that a non-profit?!

Of course, Noah’s Ark has been found before. Several times. So I suppose we’ll have to wait and see.

Read the whole story here.

If this story turns out to be 100 percent true rather than 99.9 percent true, will it change your belief in anyway?

Do you think it’s really Noah’s Ark?!

Think we should sing? All together now!

The Lord said to Noah
there’s gonna be a floody floody
Lord said to Noah
there’s gonna be a floody floody
Get my children (clap)
out of the muddy muddy
Children of the Lord.

It’s not gonna change what I believe – it’d be me feel good – like finding $5 in the pocket of my freshly laundered jeans.

Finding Noah’s Ark won’t change anything for me.

Noah, Noah, he built him an ark-y ark-y
built it out of hickory bark-y bark-y
Children of the Lord!

I wonder if it’s true this time.

Last I heard, there was this guy Wyatt (http://www.wyattmuseum.com/) who claimed to have found it. Had the Turkish government build a new highway and found a national park around his findings.

Now…these guys have found it at a completely different site?

I wonder if they found the remains of Lot’s pirate raft nearby….

Does this guy’s name make anyone else want to start singing, “”Everybody wang chung tonight”? Just saying.

On an actually related topic. I agree with Allan, it’s like $5 in your jeans. You wouldn’t have starved had you not found it, but it’s a feel good. A sort of bolster to my faith if you will. :)

Really? I thought they found it over 20 years ago? I heard something about the government not letting anyone on the mountain though. Maybe it was just a fly-over by a military plane or something and not an on-the-ground discovery.

Cool to find it. My faith wouldn’t be any less though if they never had.

I love this song…

the animals they came on,
they came on by twos-ies twos-ies
elephants and kangaroos-ies roosies
children of the lord.

I remember Wing-Cheung had a couple of hits in the 80s. I didn’t know he had become an evangelical archeologist.

    Listen carefully… the words actually go:

    Everybody have fun tonight,
    Everybody find ark tonight.

I could be wrong, but it looks like he is studying some kind of inscription on the wall there…

It looks to me from this angle like…”Noah was here”

I think the best part of the correlating article is the team member “Panda Lee” -really, now? You’re first name is Panda and we’re supposed to believe the rest of the article?

In all honesty, I’d rather see the Ark of the Covenant than the Ark of Noah.

Carbon dating “proves” that this structure is 4800 years old. Does that mean they’re going to start trusting carbon dating when it “prove” that the earth is billions of years old?

This is the real deal this time. All other arks on Ararat are fakes. It took God sending a “panda” to discover the authentic ark.
