They have found a boat! A really old boat that is and once again we hear claims that it is Noah’s ark:
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.”
They used carbon dating to figure out how old it is? Would this be the same carbon dating that proves caveman lived tens of thousands of years before God created Adam and Eve? I thought that kind of witchcraft was frowned upon by the church!
