Noah’s Ark Found in Turkey’s Mt. Ararat

April 27, 2010 by · 3 Comments 


The story of Noah and the great flood is part of the in Holy Bible of Christians. When I was still a kid, his story is one my favorites. The old man has been summoned by God to build an Ark wherein his family and pairs of animals of all kind that time could fit in as a preparation for 40 days of great flood in the world. For those who will not believe him, will drowned to death when the flood came. After the great flood, Noah, his family and pair of animals were the only living creatures who were able to survive the flood.

The ark that Noah has built and served as their vessel is believed to have settled on top of Mt. Ararat in Turkey. It is a snow-capped, dormant volcanic cone. It is located in the Eastern Anatolia Region of Turkey between Do?ubayaz?t and I?d?r, near the border with Iran and Armenia, between the Aras and Murat Rivers.

“It’s not 100% that it is Noah’s Ark, but we think it is 99.9% that this is it,” Yeung Wing-cheung, a Hong Kong documentary filmmaker, told AFP.

A group of archaeologists working on Mount Ararat have discovered what they are almost certain is the remains of of the ark at an altitude of 4000m. A structure with wooden beams separated into a number of compartments has been found. Carbon dating puts its age at 4,800 years, which is consistent with the Biblical flood record. No settlement has been found above 3,500m in the area.

    No one should ever doubt that our Holy Mt Ararat will some day be in Armenian hands again.

    Ararat is 100% Armenian and Turks are savages and animals with no souls.
