Yeung Wing-Cheung of Hong Kong said he is "99 percent" sure the wooden structure he filmed along with Turkish scientists and archeologists is the remnants of the famed ark God instructed Noah to build to save himself and the world's animals from an epic flood.

"We are not saying that we are 100 percent certain that what we found is Noah's Ark. No one has ever seen the ark, no one knows what it looks like," Yeung said. "We are only 99 percent certain that it is Noah's Ark based on historical accounts, including the Bible and local beliefs of the people in the area, as well as carbon dating."

This should be BIG, BIG news, you almost cannot top this...but it ain't.
Last night when I 1st saw this, I e-mailed everyone, only 1 person replied.
I told my family, they all sort of shrugged, no excitement. I am dumbfounded.

This is Noah's Ark, how much more proof does the world need of a GREAT FLOOD and of God?

A lot more than this. Every now and then the Ark is supposedly discovered and then the discovery turns out to be crap. I dont expect this time to be any different.

I think it is the same boat as in all these past yrs. It was never confirmed because no one could get to the so called site because of weather concerns. They have had the sightings only on satellite imaging.

This is a boat on the 13,000 ft level. Nobody even lives randomly close.

Doubt cast on Noah's ark found in Turkey
A group of Chinese and Turkish explorers announced this week they are '99.9 percent' sure of their discovery on Mt. Ararat. While Noah's ark found in Turkey would bolster Bible literalists, an American ark-hunter says the latest discovery could be a hoax.

Exactly.

It couldn't possibly be something else. It absolutely HAS to be Noah's Ark. I'm interested in if they carbon date it, if all of a sudden carbon dating is a legit science and completely accurate...

That WOULD be golden. Hadn't even thought about that :lol:. Radioactive dating is total bull**** until they want to use it to date the ark apparently.

It's a hoax of course

Can you imagine the incessant amount of lying that went on during the time of Christ, before we had the ability to verify information like we do now? I think it's funny that believers recognize that there was obviously an incredible amount of misinformation and lies back then. And they also recognize that humans can be incredible liars. But they are certain their guy was telling the truth based on nothing more than faith. LOL.

3 words; Shroud of Turin.

As a DJ on SiriusXM (Hair Nation?) put it; If this were the Ark wouldn't it already be on Ebay?

Hi poornate

My entire family is very involved with the church, I am the exception. I very rarely go to church. My family, I would think that they would be excited.

Back to the implied hoax.
The person who is saying that it is a hoax is their main competitor. He tried for many years and could not find it.

Now suppose that it really is the Ark, does it change anybody's view of God? What will be it's impact on world religion?

Well obviously if it really was Noah's ark, then the story is true. That would certainly change how I feel about it. I seriously doubt it is the ark though.

I'm interested in if they carbon date it, if all of a sudden carbon dating is a legit science and completely accurate...Actually it is accepted that carbon dating is very accurate to about 5000 years. This is widely accepted by all sides. So if this is indeed dated to be around that age then it is very compelling evidence. Not that I believe this story.....I remain a skeptic until it is proven conclusively. Too many hoaxes have been perpetrated...on both sides...to warrant caution.

I agree, but I have met many people that just simply do not believe in carbon dating. No reason why...they just dont because their pastor told them it was false or something. If that peice of wood or whatever up there dates to around the Biblical flood period, all those same people will trumpet the carbon dating dates as proof even though they never believed it. Those people will also deny other forms of radioactive dating that show the Earth to be very old...

If the wood up there carbon dates to around the time of the flood it will certainly warrant more investigation, but I will still laugh at how evangelicals will accept science only when it suits their agenda.

But it really is no different than those who also believe just because they read an article on it, saw it on the History channel or was told by their professor.

That is why I love this site so much...I get a well rounded outlook on a host of issues.
