    The remains of Noah's Ark have been discovered 13,000 feet up a Turkish mountain -- according to a sensational claim by evangelical explorers.

    A group of Chinese and Turkish evangelical explorers say wooden remains they have discovered on Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey are the remains of Noah's Ark.

    The group claims that carbon dating proves the relics are 4,800 years old, meaning they date to around the same time the ark was said to be afloat. Mt. Ararat has long been suspected as the final resting place of the craft by evangelicals and literalists hoping to validate biblical stories.

    Yeung Wing-Cheung, from the Noah's Ark Ministries International research team that made the discovery, said: "It's not 100 percent that it is Noah's Ark, but we think it is 99.9 percent that this is it."

    Once corroborated, this is the archaeological find of the century.

    Non Religious scientists will NEVER validate this claim, ever.

    Supposedly Noah's Ark used to be a pilgrimage site on Ararat till covered by a glacier sometime in the middle ages. I'm going off of fuzzy memory, but seem to recall it was common for pilgrims crazy enough to take the very dangerous journey up to the ark and take a piece of it. Of course, the only corroboration is supposedly in very old church texts that well... not many people talk about so... YMMV.

    You're right though about secular scientists never agreeing to verify this find if it is true. But it isn't like, for instance the discovery of the Egyptian Army at the bottom of the Red Sea, and the curious instance that the mountain where the Ten Commandments were carved by God Himself being in the middle of a Saudi Military installation (supposedly).

    Be very interesting if anything happens about this. Could be earth-shattering to many if true.

    every now and again we find bigfoot too.

    this will turn out to be just as impotent as a gorilla suit in a block of ice.

    not that dogma junkies will stray from their fiction..
