    The story of Noahs ark has always stood out to me as one of those stories in the bible, that only proves how innacurate the bible is. Do christians really believe this part of the bible, and if you dont, can you believe in men who part the sea, or people who can come back from the dead? Are these just made up stories that were only meant to have a moral significance, and not to be taken literally?

    Heres a video of Joe Rogan discussing Noahs ark. It starts off with him talking about it in his comedy bit on stage, then after the show when hes backstage, he finds out that theres an archeoligist there in the audience that wants to discuss the ark with him. Apparently he claims they might possibly have found the ark 17,000 feet up in Mt. Ararat. Theres a 517 foot boat up there, which is pretty amazing and obviously tells some sort of story.

    I find Joes arguement to be pretty solid about the ark, and i wanted to know what christians might have to say about it.

    Heres the video...

    Care to watch the video and comment on it? You responded 2 minutes after it posted, and the video is 8 minutes long. Not that you have to watch it, but i was curious what people thought about Joes comments, and what the archeoligist has to say about finding the ark. After watching the video, is your faith only reinforced by this discovery of the boat, or is it possible youve been wrong about it all along? I highly doubt anyone is going to have a big change of heart, but you never know.

    I can't watch the video right now, no sound on this computer. I know they found a boat an Ararat, that happened years and years ago. It's made of gopher wood, from the right period of time.

    The silence is deafening. Yeah, i had a feeling people werent buying into the whole Noahs Ark thing. Even the most dedicated christian would have a hard time swallowing this story, which makes me wonder why you guys believe everything else in the bible.
