Has Noah's ark been found buried under ice on Mt. Ararat?
Over a span of more than 150 years, there have been at least a hundred
eyewitness accounts of people claiming to have seen an arklike structure
high up on Mt. Ararat in eastern Turkey. But bringing convincing evidence
to the fore has proved elusive.
However, on April 25, 2010, a team of Chinese explorers from Hong Kong–based
Noah's Ark Ministries International (NAMI) along with Turkish climbers
and authorities held a news conference in which they announced the discovery
of what they believe are large sections of Noah's ark found above the
13,000-foot level on Mt. Ararat.
Yeung Wing-Cheung, a member of the NAMI team, says the wooden structure
has several compartments, some of which may have been used to house
animals. "It's not 100 percent [sure] that it is Noah's Ark, but we
think it is 99.9 percent that this is it," he told the press.
They revealed photographs, film footage and wood specimens that, according
to them, were dated by carbon-14 tests to 4,800 years ago. The film
showed the explorers entering various compartments that they said they
think are sections of Noah's legendary ship.
Of course, extraordinary claims demand extraordinary proof. Further
exploration and testing by a broader spectrum of researchers is needed.
The photographic and video evidence presented as of this writing is
impressive but could conceivably be part of an elaborate—and rather
expensive—hoax. Yet what if the find proves to be genuine?
If true, the fallout would be mind-boggling. Gilbert Grosvenor, the
first editor of National Geographic magazine, once said that "the
discovery of Noah's Ark would be the greatest archaeological find in
human history, the greatest event since the resurrection of Christ,
and it would alter all the currents of scientific thought."
