Has Noah’s Ark Been Found?

Filed under: What is History? — John Maass @ 6:15 pm

That is the question posed by an ABC News article, here.  A group of “Christian” archaeologists believe they may have located the remains of Noah’s Ark in Iran’s Elburz mountain range.  The Texas team is the Bible Archaeology Search and Exploration (B.A.S.E) Institute, a Christian archeology organization dedicated to looking for biblical artifacts.  (Does this mean they are predisposed to finding what they are looking/hoping for? 

 

Unfort., the article does not show photos (the one above is, sadly, an artist’s conception) so their claim is still not to be properly accredited, but then again not to be completely discounted either.  These claims have beem made in the past, but usually the ark is suppossed to be in th ehigh mountains of Turkey.  This is the first I have seen a claim that “the Boat” is in Iran, at 13,000 feet. 

“The Bible places the Ark in the mountains of Ararat, a mountain range theologians believe spans hundreds of miles, which the team says is consistent with their find in Iran,” reports ABC.
