Noah’s Ark in Mount Ararat in Turkey is not true after all. Many sources confirmed that it doesn’t really exist. Everyone has gone crazy about the discovery of the Noah’s Ark lately after Fox News featured a Turkish-Chinese joint expedition and has therefore found out the existence of the Biblical item. They even used the picture shown below described it to be taken inside the ark and the wooden beams carbon-date to 4,800 years old.
Of course, this discover will not be accepted immediately by all, most especially that if it is indeed true, then a domino effect of events that were once a mystery will eventually be proven true also.
Sad to say, the discovery that they featured is a real hoax. Here is the evidence. A student of Dr. Randall Price received an email from the archeologist about the spreading claims. Dr. Randall Price is a distinguished Research Professor and Executive Director of the Center for Judaic Studies at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. He has caught the attention of everyone in 2009 when he fielded an expedition to Turkey to find Noah’s Ark.
These are the contents of his email:
I was the archaeologist with the Chinese expedition in the summer of 2008 and was given photos of what they now are reporting to be the inside of the Ark. I and my partners invested $100,000 in this expedition (described below) which they have retained, despite their promise and our requests to return it, since it was not used for the expedition. The information given below is my opinion based on what I have seen and heard (from others who claim to have been eyewitnesses or know the exact details).
To make a long story short: this is all reported to be a fake. The photos were reputed to have been taken off site near the Black Sea, but the film footage the Chinese now have was shot on location on Mt. Ararat. In the late summer of 2008 ten Kurdish workers hired by Parasut, the guide used by the Chinese, are said to have planted large wood beams taken from an old structure in the Black Sea area (where the photos were originally taken) at the Mt. Ararat site. In the winter of 2008 a Chinese climber taken by Parasut’s men to the site saw the wood, but couldn’t get inside because of the severe weather conditions. During the summer of 2009 more wood was planted inside a cave at the site. The Chinese team went in the late summer of 2009 (I was there at the time and knew about the hoax) and was shown the cave with the wood and made their film. As I said, I have the photos of the inside of the so-called Ark (that show cobwebs in the corners of rafters – something just not possible in these conditions) and our Kurdish partner in Dogubabyazit (the village at the foot of Mt. Ararat) has all of the facts about the location, the men who planted the wood, and even the truck that transported it.
With an email from a person who really joined the expedition, maybe this blabbering of the discovered ark will stop now.
