Has Noah’s Ark Been Discovered in Turkey?
What would the discovery of Noah’s Ark mean for the world? Would it bring people back to faith? To God? What about the sacred rainbow? It was in the story of Noah’s Ark when God presented man the rainbow, as a promise that he would never again destroy man by flooding. It is ironic that today, the rainbow has been hijacked by the gay-rights movement as a symbol of ‘diversity.’ Would the confirmation of a finding of Noah’s Ark change anything?
One thing is for sure, there will always be skeptics. But it is uplifting to imagine that some souls may find their way back to faith through a discovery of this magnitude. Here is the recent story by The Sun:
‘Noah’s Ark’ found in Turkey – 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.”
He said the structure contained several compartments, some with wooden beams, that they believe were used to house animals.
The group of evangelical archaeologists ruled out an established human settlement on the grounds none have ever been found above 11,000ft in the vicinity, Yeung said.
Local Turkish officials will ask the central government in Ankara to apply for UNESCO World Heritage status so the site can be protected while a major archaeological dig is conducted.
