Thread: Expedition Claims Finding Ark On Ararat

    Expedition Claims Finding Ark On Ararat

    MOSCOW (ANSA) -- An expedition organized by the Russian "Unknown Planet" association claimed having discovered Noah's Ark on Mount Ararat.

    The news was broken by mission director Andrey Polyakov, a linguist and documentaryist, at the "Unknown Planet" website, which makes films on Earth mysteries, as well as in an interview with the Russian press.

    In the past, specialists had claimed that the remains of Noah's Ark--an enormous petrified wood structure which corresponded to the measurements given in the Bible, had been photographed from space.

    Polyakov claims having obtained authorization from Turkish authorities for ascending Ararat, which is closed due to security reasons. "The Ark is not on Ararat's summit, but rather some 30 kilometers away," he noted. "The Bible itself states that it wasn't on Ararat, but in the Mountains of Ararat."

    "It's an enormous petrified wood structure, 150 meters long, 25 wide, and 15 tall, resembling a vessel as large as a football field," he added.

    Polyakov added that the expedition found traces of enormous rocks which could have been "anchors". "But there are so many that one could think of a flotilla of ships, rather than a single vessel." According to Kurdish sources cited by Polyakov, after a tremendous earthquake in 1948, the ship was severed in two halves--one of which points upward with a height of 2 meters. The other remains buried. "It is now a matter for academics to determine with certainty if it is indeed the Ark," said the researcher, who announced an upcoming mission to the zone.

    I think it was on National Geographic or something many years back. They pointed to this obscure thing by some rocks. They claimed that the local government would not permit them access to the actual area, so they couldn't get any closer.

    I guess they have access now.
    Aren't we in the trust tree, thingey?

    Indeed, I saw this a number of years ago. I'm sure National Geographic'll have an article on the results.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"

    I can see it now:

    The "Secularization" of the story of Noah and his Ark!

    The de-mystification process will begin in, oh, a week or two, I would imagine....


    MN-Am I being too cynical?

    I figure you'll tell me the truth, being Canadian and all.

    I've never been to Mount Ararat, so I can't tell you.

    I'll send an agent on the Geographic team.
