Explorers claim to have found Noah’s Ark in Turkey
A group of evangelical explorers claimed on Tuesday they have found the relics of Noah’s Ark on Mount Ararat, a snow-capped, dormant volcanic cone in eastern Turkey.
Yeung Wing-Cheung, a Hong Kong documentary filmmaker who is part of the research team that made the discovery, said: “It’s not 100 percent that it is Noah’s Ark, but we think it is 99.9 percent that this is it.”
They claim carbon dating proves the wooden remains are 4,800 years old — around the same time the vessel was said to be afloat.
The search for the relics of the Bible’s most famous cargo ship has held an interest for a lot of people for hundreds of years. But despite numerous claims, no scientific evidence has ever been found.
Let’s just hope this is not a shameless attempt by the Turkish government to attract more tourists.
