Has Noah's Ark Been Found?

    No matter who you are, your ancestry is traced from Noah and his wife.  This is where your family tree begins.  Could this be Noah's Ark?

      In Noah story there would have to be 4 times the mass of salt water of what is on the surface of the earth today, in order to reach the highest mountain. Mix salt water with fresh water and it would kill every living thing on earth and much of the sea life also. When Noah Ark reaches land again there would be no food or tree to eat or build with.

      Noah would probably feed the Ark wood to the animals and only if there were any wood left over he would build a house for his Family security, If his family has not already been eaten by the animals

        At the rate of rainfall claimed, there won't be any topsoil left, either - it will all be at the bottom of the sea.  No plant life for thousands of years, then.

          God said, he gave every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth.

          Where did Noah plant seeds without the animal eating him first with the seeds. After all, the predator was converted back to meat eaters when they landed. There is hundreds of reason why Noah’s story dose not float. Yet about 1/3 of the world believes creationism under some monotheist God existed. About 50% to 80% of the population believes in evolution in some form.

          About 4300 years ago 8,000 animals of kinds on the Ark grew to millions of species today. No miracle happened wail this event would have been the most important transition ever to happen on earth. About 16 percent of dinosaur excess of ten tons and many animals had Special Diets and they don’t know where they stored the Doop. Hundred of humans have died attempting to climb Mount Everest from altitude sickness, freezing temperatures; exhaustion from pressure. Yet Noah animal escaped this death zone again without miracles.


          All done without miracles, without evolution afterwards, making it the greatest BS story ever told next to the Bible it’s self, since God gave us everything.

            I don't recall Noah stocking seeds to take with him, and after months of sitting under miles of water, and pressures measured in tons per square inch, there weren't any seeds to plant anyway.  Maybe he collected some from the tons of dung produced each day during the months by the animals of the ark?  Carefully sifting through it before daily shoveling cubic yards over the side?

              There  you go
              soil and seeds.

              Anyone out there with some wholy imagination  to help with the Ark's science concept?

              According to the information, the torrent lasted 40 days/nights. Afterward it took 3 YEARS for the waters to fully recede. This is exemplified by the going and returning of a bird or birds. Multiple times until they no longer returned, indicating dry land and nesting trees were now available.

              Now, knowing botany as I do from being in the food industry, can say that seeds are some f-ing amazing things of nature. Not only can they withstand years without sunlight, but also extreme temperature and moisture changes (water and drought). Therefore, the time-table provided does line up with the biological ability of seeds to remain dormant until the proper atmosphere exists for germination and growth.

              What I find interesting about the story is: the first thing Noah did upon exiting the vessel was to plant a vineyard. Dude was like, "Oy vey, after three years of that I need a drink!"  It takes just 84 days to grow grapes -seed to harvest, and then at least a month of fermentation -for white wine, 12 months for red wine.

              As for the location of the vessel, if adrift for even a day in a torrent or hurricane, a typical boat can be moved hundreds of miles from its origin, nevermind three years adrift at sea with no steerage. Who knows where the vessel went or came to rest. But it would be interesting to find out, based on currents of the time, where it travelled and came to land.

        70% of the earth is covered with water.  A vast reserve of water is locked in glaciers and an amount greater than all surface oceans is locked within the planet itself: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/ … z2vqgBWRHZ



        Salt water is heavier than fresh water, and would sink to lower depths when mixed.  Even so, marine creatures account for more than 95% of the fossil record. Whale fossils are found in the sands of the Sahara Desert, the largest non-polar desert in the world. In the foothills of the Himalayas, whale fossils were found in a layer of sediments clearly associated with marine animals rather than freshwater species. The peaks of the Himalayas are covered with fossils of marine life.

            At the tops of the highest peaks, like Mount Everest, it is possible to find 400-million-year-old fossils of sea creatures and shells that were deposited at the bottoms of shallow tropical seas that are now over 25,000 feet above sea level.Europe was a closer to Africa just 20 million years ago , and India was at an earlier stage of slamming into Asia. The climate was a little warmer than today,

      I have heard that Noah's Ark had been found and that it was real before watching this video. I also watched Bill Nye's refutation that such an ark was impossible. Living in a three-dimensional world, we are prone to discard anything that doesn't fit within those three dimensions. Looking at the phenomenon from another perspective, perhaps Arafat was not as high prior to the flood and rose up as part of the earth's shifting tectonic plates during the flood. If anything is possible with God, there is no reason that He could not have given special protection to Noah, his family, and the animals until He was satisfied with his cleaning job. The specifications and materials found are more than coincidence. ~~~

        Would that make God rewards supernatural and people who obey him are super human being.

        For Noah was 9 feet tall
        and was 600 years old.
        Then to handle all the World's animal and plants he had to be superman, not really a human at all.

      I believe that it is possible that this is the Ark spoken of in the Bible. Mans logic, as you see here, can't conceive the ark experience as a real occurrence. Well, I do believe! God is more than able and I'm thankful He didn't just leave us or forsake us... even though He knew some would still resist Him. That's a Real Loving God!

    They're never going to find Noah's, Tower of Babylon or the Arc of the Convenient ! Why? Because they never interested the first place! For those mentally lazy individuals that have a hard time distinguishing fact form fiction, these stories are metaphors. A metaphor is a figure of speech that identifies one thing as being the same as some unrelated other thing 30 minutes of research will debunk all those BS stories and you'll find out that the Biblical Genesis (written in 600 BC)is a rip-off from the much earlier (2,000+ years earlier) Sumerian Euridu Genesis. The Egyptians never heard of an earth covering flood and neither has any other cultures existing at the time. The Egyptians never heard of Moses and the Babylonians never built a huge tower! God (Yahwah) was one of 30+ gods worshiped by the Canaanites. So out of the 1,200+ gods worshiped through out the Middle East, your god is real while all the others are made up rubbish! Good one. One last thing. The Easter Bunny and Santa aren't real either. But I don't know about Spider-man and Superman because I have DVDs and books that say they exist!

        I take it that you didn't read what I wrote. I watched the video and the stupidity used  in the excuses they used to explain that myth hurts.  Dean Stockwell said at the beginning. ",,,a story that every school chid knows..." but unfortunately some go on to believe as truth. So sad in this day and age. That mock documentary was as bad as the one shown on the reality of mermaids that was shown a few months back. Here again  we have a case where we have a the issue of determining fact from fiction. You do know that there are videos and webpages that are on the internet that are not real, right.  We are not embeds and our ancestry is not traced from Noah and his wife. Sorry, physical evidence and DNA says something completely different.

              The Bible tells us how the land in one place, connected together. (Gen 1:9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.)

              It also tells us that the land was divided after the flood.  (Gen 10:25 And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan.)

              If the land separates. the people on that land move with the land.

                    Sorry - was replying to this: "The Bible tells us how the land in one place, connected together." from Sir Dent.  He seems to think it had something to do with the flood millions of years after the "togetherness" ended.

                    But what does "There is a lot of evidence using DNA that supports the family tree of humanity descending from three couples" have to do with an ancient archaeological discovery any more than Pangaea?

                The Babble centers around one small group (Israelites - the chosen ones out of all the other groups) of Semitics within a vast number of other Semitic tribes in and around Mesopotamia in the Bronze Age Middle East. This particular tribe used and altered the ancient Sumerian stories to explain how they came about. These said that their people originated from Adam and Eve who lived in a garden in Eden located between the Tigress and Euphrates Rivers. Hmmm. The exact same place Sumer was located. Yet the Sumerians were there since 10,000 BC but are aren't Semitic. Eden is a Sumerian word meaning vast plain - there was never a garden there or reports of the magical appearance of extra birds, livestock, sea monsters or any giants. Genesis even mentions the existence of the Assyrian Empire (Semitic country bordering north of Sumer. - previously the Semtic  Akkad Empire) while Adam and Eve were being created. So this says the story (in oral form) is no older than 3,500 years. Sorry Bible thumpers, these stories are not and were never meant to be taken as historically accurate. But you you are desperately trying to hang on to these precious fairy stories even though the Jews dismissed them back in the 12th Century. Unless you're a Jew under Babylonian captivity or Roman occupation, these stories mean nothing to you. So grow up!

              About 12'000 years ago the earths population was 4 million. That 6,000 years before Adam and Eve began according to creation scienceist.

              Noah Ark happened 4500 years ago with a restarting population of 8 humans. When studies show world population was 20 million people living on earth at the same
              time.
              About 4000 years ago world Parkpopulation
              was 27 million people.
