Noah’s Ark

by Timothy Tay

Noah’s Ark has been found atop a mountain in Turkey, a team of Turkish and Chinese evangelical explorers said Monday, April 26. The 15-person team claims to have recovered fragments of wood and pieces of rope from a structure on Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey that carbon dating has put at 4,800 years old, roughly coinciding with the time the biblical flood was said to have been occurred.

The team is a joint effort between Hong Kong-based Media Evangelism, Noah’s Ark Ministry International and the Turkish government.

Yeung Wing-Cheung, a member of the team, told AFP, “It’s not 100 percent that it is Noah’s Ark but we think it is 99.9 percent that this is it.”

He said that the structure at the site featured wooden beams and several compartments that were believed to house animals. The group of evangelical archaeologists ruled out an established human settlement on the grounds that one had never been found above 3,500 metres in the vicinity, Yeung said. Wing-Cheung added that local officials will ask the Turkish government to apply for UNESCO World Heritage status, to protect the site while further archaeological excavation is carried out.
