Noah's Ark Aug 19, 2010
Have you all heard that Noah’s ark has been found- long time ago?
Seems like there is not much publicity about it, for it’s being kept as a low-profile finding.. :?

[So it was], until when Our command came and the oven overflowed, We said, "Load upon the ship of each [creature] two mates and your family, except those about whom the word has preceded, and [include] whoever has believed." But none had believed with him, except a few.(Quran) Hud-11:40

The size of the ark from the pictures looks just about right and in line with the verse for the few number of household members and animals it had to carry..

And construct the ship under Our observation and Our inspiration and do not address Me concerning those who have wronged; indeed, they are [to be] drowned." (11:37)
And We carried him on a [construction of] planks and nails
And We have left this as a Sign (for all time): then is there any that will receive admonition? (Al-qamar-54:13/15)

Scientists’ lab results of the nails show us that God had taught prophet Noah how to use titanium to mix with other metal alloys to make the nails. Modern humans have only managed to discover how to make alloyed titanium after 1950’s… ... nium_facts

Then the word went forth: "O earth! swallow up thy water, and O sky! Withhold (thy rain)!" and the water abated, and the matter was ended. The Ark rested on Mount Judi, and the word went forth: "Away with those who do wrong!" (Hud-11:44

In the 1980s, adventurer and self-styled archaeologist Ron Wyatt and his colleague David Fasold claimed to have discovered Noah's Ark at Durupınar, some twenty miles from Mt. Ararat near a mountain locals called Cudi Dağı. Fasold later vacillated on the claim. In the 1990s, Bill Crouse, another ark-researcher, claimed that the Cudi Dagh was located approximately 200 miles south of Mt. Ararat in southern Turkey.

Interesting stuff Berrin.

I remain to be convinced (I've seen a couple of documentaries on possible findings of the Ark), but kudos on those looking for it and presenting the evidence.

I do believe there was an ark and a flood etc, just not completely convinced that these claims are valid. They could be, and it would be great if they were. Doesn't really affect religion either way though.

Wiki covers the various claimants as well:'s_Ark

As an aside, did you know that many cultures have flooding myths in their folklore? Some say that all of these are related? Any views on this?
