Good morning, Netizens…
There are memories in our lives which are embedded in and become a part of our lives. Among some of those memories are my limited time studying theology decades and decades ago. Despite having “drifted” from my roots in Protestant religion through a wide variety of disciplines and religious beliefs, the tale of the Ark still remains a part of my memories cherished and held for all these years.
So, having said that, if you believe in that tale perhaps this next bit of lore may find a certain degree of acceptance in your lives. If not, we simply move on. A group of fundamentalist Christians believe they have found what they believe are the remains of Noah’s Ark atop the venerable Mount Ararat. Could it be? The proclamations have been made before, but no one has yet to conclusively prove it. This picture released by the evangelical group claims to show one of the explorers examining part of a structure which they claim might prove the existence of Noah’s Ark on Mount Ararat. There are no external images of the site and the Hong Kong-based group refuse to say precisely where they made their discovery until the Turkish government designate it an archaeological site.
Even so, the explorers who say they found seven large wooden compartments beneath snow and volcanic debris near the peak of Mount Ararat can be forgiven their excitement.
‘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,’ said Yeung Wing-cheung, a filmmaker working with the 15-strong team of fundamentalist Christians exploring the Turkish mountain. The radio carbon dating of the wood is dead-on to be the approximate time frame of Noah’s Ark.

Granted, there are a lot of historians who state emphatically there are no historical precedents which would prove their beliefs. However, there are more pictures of the site, including satellite imagery, that purport to prove their claim. One of the things missing are, of course, the animal excrement from all that time spent bobbing on the water.
