Noah's Ark Discovery?

'Difficulties with a number of issues'Dr. Price, who is director of the Center for Judaic Studies at the conservative Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., was the archaeologist on the Chinese-led team in 2008 when this alleged discovery was first made. He says he has “difficulties with a number of issues related to the evidence at hand.”

Price declined to elaborate. However, a leaked email from Price – which he confirms that he wrote – shows that he has reason to believe that a group of local Kurdish men trucked wood up to the mountain and staged an elaborate hoax for the Chinese team.

A group of Kurdish workers “are said to have planted large wood beams taken from an old structure in the Black Sea area (where the photos were originally taken) at the Mt. Ararat site. … During the summer of 2009 more wood was planted inside a cave at the site. The Chinese team went in the late summer of 2009 (I was there at the time and knew about the hoax) and was shown the cave with the wood and made their film,â€

Not good evidenceDr. John D. Morris, who is president for Dallas’ Institute for Creation Research and has been a consultant to the team since 2005, says he declined an invitation to be a part of this week's press conference in Hong Kong.

“I’m a scientist. I need to have good evidence,” says Dr. Morris. “As of right now, there is not.”

Morris, who is also a fundamentalist Christian, led 13 expeditions to Mount Ararat between 1971 and 1990 as he searched for the ark. He has been in contact with the Chinese-led team for the past decade.

He says their finding is inconclusive and calls for more research. Video available on the team's web site shows the team exploring inside a wooden structure embedded in a sort of ice cave. The wooden walls of one compartment are smooth and curved. Morris says it is almost unfathomable that such heavy materials could be hauled up to 12,000 feet and lodged in the mountain ice without a major operation using heavy machinery.

Yueng would not reveal the location of the site because he says the team is waiting for the Turkish government to set up an official preservation area to continue their work.

Yeung told the South China Morning Post that a piece of wood obtained from the site was dated as 4,800 years old by a carbon-dating method in Iran. This matches with the range of years stated in the Bible, suggesting when the vessel was built."

The freaking "ark" has been "discovered" every damn year going back to at least 1883:


There are so many people traipsing around that mountain, the Turkish government has built a freaking visitor center there in the 1980s! Also, did you know that "gullible" isn't in the dictionary?

Our Visit to the Noah's Ark Site

October 10-12, 2000

http://www.biblediscoveries.com/content/view/19/36/ (pops)

We took the right turn and passed through a park and village towards a military base (soldiers are seen frequently in the area, and we had to stop at several check posts on the main road; no photos!). From there we turned left toward the mountain top through zig-zag unpaved roads, climbing 1500 ft over a distance of two miles, taking about 15 minutes for the climb. Deep ravines or crevasses were on our left side. The Ark formation, shown below, is barely visible from the valley base, but then disappears from view due to intervening hills until we get real close to it. The Turkish government built in 1987 a Visitors Center on the hill opposite to the Ark site, and our bus could reach the Center. Many years back only a horse ride or walk would take you up there.
