Working Replica of Noah's Ark Opened In SCHAGEN, Netherlands.
The massive central door in the side of Noah's Ark was opened for the first crowd of curious townsfolk to behold the wonder. Of course, it's only a replica of the biblical Ark , built by Dutch Creationist Johan Huibers as a testament to his faith in the literal truth of the Bible. The ark is 150 cubits long, 30 cubits high and 20 cubits wide. That's two-thirds the length of a football field and as high as a three-story house. Life-size models of giraffes, elephants, lions, crocodiles, zebras, bison and other animals greet visitors as they arrive in the main hold. A contractor by trade, Huibers built the ark of cedar and pine. Biblical scholars debate exactly what the wood used by Noah would have been.
Man Builds Noahʼs Ark to Exact Scale Given in Bible
Johan's Ark or Ark van Johan is a half-length model of Noah's Ark built by Dutch creationist Johan Huibers. The replica is half the length of that given in the Bible

This means that we're all descendants of 13 to 87 people with the same beliefs, all from the same region and likely with the same genetic attributes?

I'll hold my opinion until more experts have had a chance to view and explore this new discovery.
There are flood stories in many cultures. However, I don't believe that the world was covered to the point that a boat would end up at the 13,000 foot lever of a mountain. Just my 2 cents worth.

So when there is no geological evidence for a worldwide flood and there isn't evidence for exodus you think that's ok? I mean it reads like a myth. What's wrong with it being a myth?
We have indeed created the heavens and the earth and all that is between them in six aeons, and no weariness could ever touch Us.
Price had planned to check out the latest site in 2008 but did not get to for reasons not clearly reported.
“During that expedition, the guide … who claimed to have found the Ark, was constantly drunk and after one month sitting in a hotel waiting, the expedition never happened,” he informed ministry supporters.
Though many have concluded from Price’s leaked e-mail that the Christian archaeologist believes the Kurdish guide and his partners were merely extorting money from the Chinese evangelical Christians belonging to NAMI, the ministry leader stopped short of affirming the conclusion, saying only that he believes that the greater the claim, the greater the evidence needs to be to support it.
On another note, Price had informed supporters in his e-mail that he plans to check out another site this summer with a man who has climbed Mount Ararat 33 times and claims to know the location of a piece of the Ark.
“Last year we had a good expedition to a higher site (the satellite site) and this summer we will excavate the shepherd’s site and have every reason to expect success,” he reported.

The Hebrew story of Noah is predated by the Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh. The story itself was inspired by a Sumerian who passed on the story to the Hebrew. Abraham came from the Sumerian city of Ur where the first tablets depicting the flood story were found. If we were to date the story using the Hebrew tradition it wouldn't go back far enough. If there was ever a physical boat it is long gone due to geological changes and exposure to the elements over at LEAST a 13,000 year period.
Remember to the Sumerians the Epic was a historical account.

So why don't we see devices from that time period that are advanced?
Where are all of the devices from this age? Why are the older sites without plows, wheels, and metals?
