Evangelicals Find “Noah’s Ark” In Turkey

Posted by on April 30th, 2010


The hunt for the most infamous floating zoo may have come to an end, if you ask a team of Chinese and Turkish evalgleicals who claim they’ve found the remains of Noah’s Ark.

The remains of Noah’s Ark have been discovered 13,000ft up a Turkish mountain, it has been claimed.

A group of Chinese and Turkish evangelical explorers say they have found wooden remains on Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey.

They claim carbon dating proves the relics are 4,800 years old — around the same time the ark was said to be afloat.

Yeung Wing-Cheung, from the Noah’s Ark Ministries International research team, said: “It’s not 100 per cent that it is Noah’s Ark, but we think it is 99.9 per cent that this is it.”

Many believe it was the highest point in the mountain region Mount Ararat where the Ark ran aground.

    Are they sure it was a boat? Maybe someone made a boat-looking house?

    And is there any evidence of animals that used to live in there or something? Otherwise you can néver be sure to say that it is Noah's Ark.
