Ooh, yet another Noah’s Ark has been found. I’ve lost count, but the Real Noah’s Ark tm must have been found a hundred times by now. And that crack reporting team from CBN is on the story:
Now, a group of scientists say they’ve found parts of the biblical ark.
Daniel McGivern and his team claimed to have discovered two large sections of Noah’s ark resting just below surface atop Mount Ararat in Turkey — where the Bible says the ark came to rest.
“The mountain is treeless. The mountain is volcanic with gases. There is no conceivable way that you could have an object that big on a mountain,” McGivern said.
The team used military satellite imagery and ground penetrating radar technology to locate the ruins. They believe the large object is wooden.
“The evidence is overwhelming,” McGivern added. “This is the large piece from Noah’s ark.”
His evidence is based solely on imaging technology.
I love those last two sentences — the evidence is overwhelming, but based solely on imaging technology that can only show that something is buried in the ice. This is the Ron Wyatt school of archaeology — claim to have found this incredible artifact, but there’s some reason why you can’t produce the evidence for it.
The large piece of wood will likely remain buried under ice.
“There’s a huge problem with getting down to it, because of the fact that you can’t melt the ice,” McGivern explained. “You are up there at 16,600 feet. How are you going to get down to it?”
How convenient for you.
McGivern’s claim may never have the hard evidence to back it up, but the discovery could provide a great opportunity to share the gospel.
Well that makes sense. You can use one claim for which there is no evidence to justify belief in a few hundred other claims for which there is no evidence.
