I'm often amazed at our lack of knowledge about history. Ordinary people are hungry for this information, yet the organizations responsible to disseminate these facts seem to have an agenda to keep us in the dark. This is especially true when it comes to our ancient human history.
I won't hold you in suspense with this article: The Ark of Noah has been found. It's real. I'll describe the evidence in some detail and end with the historical and religious implications.
How It Was Discovered


In 1959, Turkish army captain Llhan Durupinar discovered an unusual shape while examining aerial photographs of his country. The smooth shape, larger than a football field, stood out from the rough and rocky terrain at an altitude of 6,300 feet near the Turkish border with Iran.

Capt. Durupinar was familiar with the biblical accounts of the Ark and its association with Mount Ararat in Turkey, but he was reluctant to jump to any conclusions. The region was very remote, yet it was inhabited with small villages. No previous reports of an object this odd had been made before. So he forwarded the photographic negative to a famous aerial photography expert named Dr. Brandenburger, at Ohio State University.
Brandenburger was responsible for discovering the Cuban missile bases during the Kennedy era from reconnaissance photos, and after carefully studying the photo, he concluded: "I have no doubt at all, that this object is a ship. In my entire career, I have never seen an object like this on a stereo photo."

In 1960 the picture [above] was published in LIFE magazine under the heading of Noahs Ark? That same year a group of Americans accompanied Capt. Durupinar to the site for a day and a half. They were expecting to find artifacts on the surface or something that would be unquestionably related to a ship of some kind. They did some digging in the area but found nothing conclusive and announced to the anxiously waiting world that it appeared to be a natural formation.

Most of the global media turned away from the find and it became a non-story.
In 1977 Ron Wyatt visited the site. Obtaining official permission, Ron and others conducted more thorough research over a period of several years. They used metal detection surveys, subsurface radar scans, and chemical analysis -- real science -- and their findings were startling. The evidence was undeniable. This was the Ark of Noah.
The Visual Evidence
The first part of the survey was to examine the object and take its measurements. The shape looked like hull of a ship. One end was pointed as you would expect from bow [below: D] and the opposite end was blunt like a stern. The distance from bow to stern was 515 feet, or exactly 300 Egyptian cubits. The average width was 50 cubits. These were the exact measurements mentioned in the Bible.
noahs ark found Photo: http://www.viewzone.com/noahx.html
On the starboard side (right) near the stern there were four vertical bulges protruding from the mud [B], at regular intervals, that were determined to be the "ribs" of the hull [see below]. Opposite to these, on the port side, a single rib [A] protrudes from the mud. You can see its curved shape very clearly. Surrounding it are more ribs, still largely buried in the mud, but visible upon close examination.
Remember that this object, if it is the Ark, is extremely old. The wood has been petrified. Organic matter has been replaced by minerals from the earth. Only the shapes and traces of the original wood remain. Perhaps this is why the expedition in 1960 was disappointed. They anticipated finding and retrieving chucks of wood, long since eroded.

From the position of the object in the middle of an obvious mud flow, it is obvious that the object slid down more than a mile from its original location. Geologists believe it was originally over 1000 feet higher in the mountain and encased in a shell of hardened mud. They think that an earthquake in 1948 cracked the mud shell and revealed the structure. This is confirmed by stories from the surrounding villagers who tell of its "sudden appearance" around that time.

Biblical accounts of the Ark describe it as having as many as six levels. The assumed shape of the Ark seems consistent with the bulge [C] in the middle of the object. In fact, as we will soon learn, radar scans of the structure suggest that this bulge is the collapsed debris of these levels.
Although most people think of the Ark as being rectangular, that only applies to the top decks. The sleek shape of the hull is necessary to enable the huge ship to remain stable in the water and survive tremendous waves.
Ground Penetrating Radar
The human eye needs to see reflected light to recognize an object. To visualize what remains below the earth, scientists use microwaves which can penetrate the ground and bounce back when they hit something solid. This technique is commonly used to locate oil and other minerals. Called Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), the apparatus us made from an antenna that transmits, then listens to receive the "echo" and prints the result on a piece of paper. The delay and strength of this echo tell the geologists how solid and at what depth the objects are under the earth.
noahs ark found Photo: http://www.viewzone.com/noahx.html
The team of geologists didn't scan the entire object. Instead, they marked out lines that crossed the object with yellow tape. Then they dragged the antenna (about the size of a lawnmower) over the lines and watched the output on the paper recorder. When they got a strong "hit" -- meaning there was something solid underneath -- they would record the position on the tape [above]. Later, when they made a map of the object, the tape and the location of the "hits" they realized that there was indeed a structure underneath the mud.
"This data does not represent natural geology. These are man made structures. These reflections are appearing too periodic... too periodic to be random in that type of natural pace." - Ron Wyatt of SIR Imaging team
noahs ark found Photo: http://www.viewzone.com/noahx.html
The radar cans revealed this structure [above] under the mud. The symmetry and logical placement of these objects shows that this is unmistakably a man made structure, most likely the Ark of Noah.
Artifacts Retrieved From The Ark
Using the GPR, Ron Wyatt discovered an open cavity on the starboard side. He used an improvised drill to make core sample inside this cavity and retrieved several very interesting objects. Below you can see the artifacts which were sent for laboratory analysis. On the left is the bore hole [see below], followed by what turned out to be petrified animal dung, then a petrified antler and lastly a piece of cat hair.
noahs ark found Photo: http://www.viewzone.com/noahx.html
Perhaps the most significant find from the Ark itself is a piece of petrified wood. When this was first found it appeared to be a large beam. But upon closer examination it is actually three pieces of plank that have been laminated together with some kind of organic glue! This is the same technology used in modern plywood. Lamination makes the total strength of the wood much greater than the combined strength of the pieces. This suggests a knowledge of construction far beyond anything we knew existed in the ancient world.
noahs ark found Tests by Galbraith Labs in Knoxville, Tennessee, showed the sample to contain over 0.7% organic carbon, consistent with fossilized wood. The specimen was once living matter. Photo: http://www.viewzone.com/noahx.html
Examination reveals the glue oozed from the layers. The outside of the wood appears to have been coated with bitumen.
Even more surprising were laboratory analyses which not only revealed that the petrified wood contained carbon (proving it was once wood) but there were iron nails [above right] embedded in the wood!
We like to imagine that humanity evolved in a neat sequence of eras, each named after the technology that was discovered. We have the Stone Age (where man developed arrows and stone tools), the Bronze Age (where metals were combined and heated to make tools and household items) and lastly the Iron Age (where iron and steel objects were made by heating iron ore and adding other material -- like charcoal -- to strengthen it). The Iron Age is usually placed at 1200-1000 BC, yet we have iron nails being used in this extremely old construction
But Wait... There's More!
The most surprising find was discovered with sensitive metal detectors. The team located several strong "hits" that, when dug up, revealed large disc shaped rivets. From simple observation of the metal it was possible to see where the rivet had been hammered after being inserted through a hole [below].
noahs ark found Photo: http://www.viewzone.com/noahx.html
If rivets being used in ancient construction doesn't impress you, this surely will.
An analysis of the metal used to make the rivets revealed that they were a combination of iron (8.38%), aluminum (8.35%) and titanium (1.59%). Remember these trace metals have survived petrification and so do not indicate the exact content in the original material. (see Report from Galbraith Labs)
We know the aluminum was incorporated in the metallic mixture because it does not exist in metallic form in nature. This implies an extremely advanced knowledge of metallurgy and engineering. Characteristics of an iron-aluminum alloy have been investigated in The Russian Chemical Bulletin (2005) and reveal that this alloy forms a thin film of aluminum oxide which protects the material from rust and corrosion. The addition of titanium would provide added strength. This seems to have worked. The rivets have survived from antiquity!
The Surrounding Areas
Several miles from the location of the Ark, huge stones were discovered, some standing upright while others lying on the ground. These stones, weighing many tons, have holes carved in them. Scientists have determined that they were anchors and the holes would have been their attachment to a ship with hemp rope.
noahs ark found Photo: http://www.viewzone.com/noahx.html
Often these stones will have crosses carved in them, from centuries ago when pilgrims made the journey to visit the Ark. Yes, the Ark was well known in the Middle Ages and even before. And its location was recorded in many historical documents.
"And the Ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat. And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen." - Genesis 8:4-5
The Gilgamesh Epic (650 BC) gives Mt. Nisir as the landing place of the Ark. The local name for the town where the Ark was found is Nasar.
The annals of Ashurnasurpal II of Assyria (833-859 BC) places it south of the Zab river (correct).
Theophilus of Antioch (115-185 AD) said the Ark could be seen in his day in the Arabian mountains. Later Church Fathers also mention the Ark as late as the mid 7th century.
In the 13th century, Willam, a traveler, stated for the first time that Mt. Masis was the Ark location (present-day Mt. Ararat).
Ptolemy's Geographia (1548) mentions the mountains of Armenia as the place of landing. So does the traveler Nicolas de Nicolay (1558).
Pilgrims to the site would gather bits and pieces of the petrified wood which would be used as charms to ward off evil. When they encountered the anchors, they had no doubt about their association with the Ark. They often carved one big cross to represent Noah and smaller crosses representing his family.
noahs ark found Photo: http://www.viewzone.com/noahx.html
The huge anchors would have been suspended from the keel of the ship. This was a common practice among ancient mariners to stabilize a heavy ship and ensure that the bow is always facing the on-coming waves. A "top heavy" ship, such as the Ark, could easily be capsized by a wave approaching from the side. This is yet further proof that Noah's Ark was a reality and that it has indeed been found in Turkey.

  1. Just wondering, why do we think the ostensibly Muslim Turks helped out here with the fun Bible story? Ah, because the story of Noah does not belong to Christians alone. It doesn't make the Bible stories true, but it reminds you of how silly the fighting of Christians and Jews with Muslims is. You are all praying to the same God, just in different ways.

    2. You do realize "Allah" translated into english means "God" right? It's funny how many people think Muslims believe in a different God. Christians and Muslims all believe in the same God so saying the Mohammed wanted Jews and Christians to submit to Allah/God like that's a bad thing it funny to me.

    3. Jesus is not God, nor son of God and his brutal death was not for the sins of men but for his own wrongdoing of deceiving people that he is a son of God.

      Be informed about the real word of God about why He had sent jesus:

      “And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom.”
      II Samuel 7:12 (KJV)

      The promise given to David - a descendant will come from his bloodline. What would be the work of the descendant?

      “He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever.”
      II Samuel 7:13 (KJV)

      The first choice was King Solomon a “real son” or descendant of David. King Solomon built the house with the Name of God. (1 Chr.22:9-13) What was the promise of God?

      “I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men:"
      II Samuel 7:14 (KJV)

      Delete
    4. “WHEN HE COMMIT INIQUITY” – the descendant of David would be punished. King Solomon was not punished with “chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men",( I kings 11:1-13, v.41-43) but we know that Jesus was punished in that manner.

      In the said verses: 2 Samuel 7:12-14(KJV) – we can read that God speaks of a coming offspring of David and not a literal "son of God" as what the religions preach.

      Is it really true that Jesus was a descendant of David?

      “… To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.” Luke 1:27 (KJV)

      Jesus' true father is Joseph who belongs to the house of David. So if we are to believe the teaching of the religions that Jesus is the “son of God,” then it should be Mary who should belong to the house of David.

      And in:
      “And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus.”
      Luke 1:31 (KJV)

      Delete
    5. And who was Jesus' father?

      “He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David.” Luke 1:32 (KJV)

      "shall be called" – As you have read it, Jesus was only a son or a descendant of David not a real son of God;" he was just a man.

      Is it true that Jesus is a son of David? Let us read in:
      “The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.”- Matt 1:1(KJV)

      Now we can see that the prophecy in 2 Sam7:12-14 about a coming descendant of David and not a son of God has been fulfilled. This also shows that after King Solomon, Jesus is the next from the line of David whom God has chosen to fulfill the said prophecy.

      Considering the prophecy in II Samuel 7:12-14, if the descendant of David commits iniquity, he will be chastened with the rod of men. Was Jesus-the descendant of King David punished by the rod and floggings of men?

      Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children. Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified. Matthew 27:25-26 (KJV)

      Delete
    6. Indeed, Jesus was flogged by men which when we read again what God stated in the prophecy in 2 Sam 7:14(KJV) “I will be his father, and he shall be my son. IF HE COMMIT INIQUITY, I WILL CHASTEN HIM WITH THE ROD OF MEN, AND WITH THE STRIPES OF THE CHILDREN OF MEN:"

      We can discover for ourselves that based on what God said in the prophecy that the real reason why He allowed Jesus -the descendant of king David to be beaten by men was not for our sins but for his (Jesus) own iniquity.

      It appears now that the Apostles-the writers of the New Testament who claimed that Jesus was sent by God to be beaten for our sins were hiding from us what really happened to Jesus. Worse than that, the apostles made us worship Jesus -who in reality was punished by God for his own wrongdoing!

      One of the greatest wrongs that Jesus did was:

      “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Matt.16:18 KJV

      Jesus was sent by God to lead his people to the house with the Name of God that was built by King Solomon. Instead, he built another house in his own name. Jesus had put up his own church which was not part of his work as specified in the prophecies. This deception was used as the foundation of faith of the many religions. By building a church in his own name, Jesus had made himself to be known as a god rather than making his fellow Israelites know the true name of God!

      Since the religions made us worship Jesus who- as based on God’s word in the prophecy in 2 Samuel 7:12-14 was punished by God for his own wrongdoing and not for our sins as the apostles claim, it is clear that we were taught by the religions an erroneous teaching about God. This is why God does not hear the prayer of the peoples of the world for peace but continues to let mankind suffer from all these wars and disasters because they are calling on a false god made by the apostles.

    7. TO KNOW the teachings of God and Teachings of satan , Use Wisdom and Understanding How important is WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING? God gave man intellect, the power to distinguish what is right or wrong. He expects us to use this and not be deceived. How disappointing it is for God if we fail! As an example, look at Adam and Eve, a couple with intellect. God gave them a directive that they may eat every fruit in the Garden of Eden except one! Still, they let themselves be deceived by the snake that led to their punishment and banishment from Eden. Yet, the snake remained.

      Snake, Satan… the Deceiver’s mission is to trick people. The snake is not God’s enemy or adversary, but rather God’s instrument to test mankind. God gave the commandments to follow and if man will not use his WISDOM and UNDERSTANDING and let himself be deceived by Satan, he will be punished. Satan is as cunning as ever! He deceives using mediums that are capable of deluding man!

      The Holy Bible presented facts and incidents on how Satan cheats man. It is but proper that everyone gets WISDOM and UNDERSTANDING to avoid delusion! The first step towards a new and great beginning!

  2. The drogue stones have been proven to be cut from stones local to the area, not Mesapotamia where the ark would have originated, and the crosses were added much later than when the stone was tooled. More bunk. There was no ark, there are no gods, and this kind of crap just keeps us from progressing and looking forward.

    2. Imagine nothing, absolutely nothing. Not even one little molecule of air, not one single atom floating in the emptiness of space. Not a single quark nor neutrino. Just utter emptiness forever and ever. That’s what there really was in the beginning… Nothing. I know scientist have all kinds of theories on how the universe came about, but God seems to be the only working theory. You see, scientist designed and built the massive Hadron collider in Switzerland. It’s purpose it to shatter protons to find out what they are made of. They are looking for what they call the ‘God particle’ to explain how matter is made. Guess what, they have not found it. What they did find is that each proton seems to break into little ‘strings’ of energy that simply come back together to make a proton again. They never found any particle in the proton. There is not a particle in an atom anywhere. An atom is a rather empty area of space containing some string energy arranged in a specific order. If you were to view an atom enlarged enough that the nucleus was the size of a marble, the closest electron in orbit would be at a 2 mile radius causing the atom to appear that large or larger. A four mile bubble of mostly empty space.
      Scientist agree that the universe started at one point and expanded to what it is now. They do not agree on how this happened. I challenge you to think about it. If matter doesn’t exist in the form of solid particles and it is all just energy. Then where do you think all of this energy came from. The source of this energy is the most massive thing ever conceived of. It is what I call God. God either is the energy or he is the host or projector of the energy. You might liken it unto the voice of God, where as the word of God is what we live by.
      When God spoke, the voice resonated out to form the universe. In Gods eye, it will come and go as quickly as a spoken word. For us who are caught up in it, it seems like an eternity, or at least 13.75 Billion years so far. I will give the scientist the benefit of the doubt on this one and say the word God uttered was “Bang!”

    3. First of all, if you had done actual research as you make it appear, you would know that they did find the "god particle" and it is called the Higg's Boson. You would also know that this the only way this particle got its name as the "god" particle is a scientist once called it the "god damn particle" and the media ran with the name "the god particle". Also, one of the largest claims in your argument is that protons do not contain any mass, and yet the god particle is exactly what gives the nucleus its mass. A simple google search could have gotten you this information.
      For years creationists have filled the gaps of scientific ignorance with god and claimed it is evidence of a creator, and these gaps have been ever-shrinking due to scientific advancement. Scientists are actively trying to answer the questions about the origin of matter that you have brought up, but creationism claims to know the answer without any evidence to back up their claims except for that science doesn't have the answer.
      I would suggest you to believe what can be proven, and to be skeptical of people who tell you they know the answers without having legitimate proof to back it up. This my friend is the philosophy that is to thank for most of the advances in sciences and technology we know today.

    1. If there is a god, he/she is worthless. No supreme being would allow their creations to suffer and die needlessly like people do unless they just didn't care - and I'm not just talking about the thousands upon thousands that starve to death on a yearly basis, I'm also talking about the thousands upon thousands that have died because warring religions kill for the title of being right. A truly benevolent and loving god would have consistently shown themselves throughout history and brought all of their children together as one, not let them kill indiscriminately. So if there is a god, I would love the chance to tell them how pathetic of a job they have done.

      As for jesus dying for our sins - what kind of a god has to create another version of themselves to come to earth and die to save us from a hell that they created in the first place? God created sin and could have chosen to simply forgive for all sins from day one, but instead he/she had to have millions of animals murdered in their name and then had to come to earth and die themselves just to "save us"? Sounds pretty inept to me.....

    2. A typical response for someone who has no actual knowledge in religion. God didn't create sin to watch us suffer he crested us perfect and clean but gave us warning to watch out for evil in the form of on tree growing apples. We defied that one rule per say and were exposed to sin. Hell only exists because Lucifer fell with some other angels and continue to bring about suffering. God gives all people the right to freewill otherwise what would be the point? To create something that loves you out of force? No he wants us to choose the right path on our own. But us as humans fell and fell again even with prophets and shows of famine and flood, we wouldn't make it into his planned paradise so in his own sacrifice he had his only son come to teach us the correct ways of life and establish his church which is the catholic church. He was condoned to death in the most evil ways because we are so susceptible to sin and enjoy the temptation of Satan and through Jesus sacrifice on the cross he choose to forgive us and give us a chance at internal life. I am a common catholic I can see your argument is easily arguable don't ever challenge a religious major or someone who bases their own life off of this because you don't not have enough knowledge to support even a small argument. I hope you find God sooner or later.

  9. You all are pretty funny. Talking about how arguing about all of this is the problem and then you continue to argue some more.

    The truth is that God manifests to anyone searching for the true wisdom and understanding of the Love of the Light. What you call him means little. Even the Greeks called God Pneuma which translates to breath (dunnn dunn dunn...air)

    God is everywhere and everything. Once you learn to accept each others differences and see the beauty in all that exists then you can begin to expand your Love and share with all.

    Even if you don't believe in a specific religion you must not forget that every prophet has taught us many important lessons. You can choose to open up your eyes and learn Love or you can close them up and chastise any and all who "aren't on your side."

  10. It's so sad that people won't believe even with evidence in front of them, the truth is, is that people perish for lack of knowledge (in other words: ignorance). God gave us the truth in his word, and mapped out exactly how this world started and will end, with Jesus Christ being eternally our King of kings, Lord of lords. While there are people being persecuted for the sake of Jesus Christ and being murdered brutally by these so called "peaceful" religions.

    The same religions that claim with their violent, heinous acts as a "will of God". These same blasphemous people are the same type that sell their children down the river, and have them executed for defending themselves against disgusting acts of abuse. You guys know who i'm talking about, and you know if you're reading this you're wrong and God will hold you accountable in the end. Quit playing this religious game, 'works salvation' will cost you your soul in the end. And God has warned us about this time and time again (look at the pharisees).

    Jesus Christ is returning soon, and he wants us to repent of our sins, to love God with all our might, and to love one another. I love you guys so much that I wouldn't want any of you to perish in hell. No, not one person deserves to be in hell for eternity, but you must, must, MUST make a choice on who you will choose this day. I, and no one else can make you choose, and no one but yourself will be responsible for your own soul's destiny. Be blessed in Jesus name!
