Scientists are very optimistic because they beleive to have found the remains of Noah's Ark due to some satellite imagery.


Whatever it is, the anomaly of interest rests at 15,300 feet (4,663 meters) on the northwest corner of Mount Ararat, and is nearly submerged in glacial ice. It would be easy to call it merely a strange rock formation.

But at least one man wonders if it could be the remains of Noah's Ark, a vessel said to have been built to save people and selected animals from the Great Flood, the 40 days and 40 nights of deluge as detailed in the Book of Genesis.

The Genesis blueprint of the Ark detailed the structure as 6:1 length to width ratio (300 cubits by 50 cubits). The anomaly, as viewed by satellite, is close to that 6:1 proportion.

Everybody cross your fingers.

Didn't some retired astronaut claim to find the ark about 20 years ago? Personally, I don't think that picture proves a heck of a lot. Someone needs to go there and do some digging. I'm pretty skeptical of stuff like this.

Former astronaut Jim Irwin made a couple of trips looking for the ark on Mt. Ararat in Turkey. He didn't find it.

Here is a link to some more information.

He started his searching nearly 20 years ago based on satelite imagery.

I read the article referenced in the first post. Of the three people directly quoted in the article; one is an associate professor of paralegal studies, another is a satellite imagery analyst who never says anything conclusive about the item, also heard from is the director of communications and marketing for the company responsible for the Ikonos satellite who also says nothing about the anamoly, and the Director of the Boston University Center for Remote Sensing who completely poo-poos the image.

That doesn't really sound like scientists who are optimistic about Noah's Ark.

My intent is not to completely shoot your thread down, just to point out how important is to use a critical view on sources.

Yet another Noahs ark farce.

I am sorry people but the great flood myth has been around long before Christianity and old testament recycled it in the form of Noah and the Ark..
Check here for a listing of previous civilizations and religions "great flood + single vessel surviving + saving mankind for the future myth"

Incas, babilonians, Assyrians the list is endless, but the story is the same...

I think we need a reality check here

there is already an older and rather active thread on this very event:

This is the picture from the original link.

I personally don't see the image of a ship. I see what could be an ice ridge or rock outcropping.
I tried to find the spot on Corona sat. images, with no luck. So I'll pull up NASA topographical data and see if it's on the Landsat data sets.
The original story gave this location:

the anomaly of interest rests at 15,300 feet (4,663 meters) on the northwest corner of Mount Ararat, and is nearly submerged in glacial ice.

Does anyone have exact coordinates that I can put into World Wind ?

I guess until an expedition gets to the spot with a ground penetrating radar unit and some shovels, we won't know for sure.
