Does ‘New Evidence’ Prove Noah’s Ark Is Buried on a Turkish Mountain?
‘Noah’s Ark, the flood is not a myth but a real incident mentioned in all holy books,’ said Dr. Oktay Belli from Istanbul University, the Daily Mail reported.
And while the flood is considered a historical event, most archaeologists and scholars do not believe in a literal interpretation of the Noah’s Ark story.
British archaeologist Mike Pitt said after the initial NAMI team findings in 2010 that the evangelical explorers have not yet produced evidence that is conclusive.
“If there had been a flood capable of lifting a huge ship 2.5 miles [4 km] up the side of a mountain 4,800 years ago, I think there would be substantial geological evidence for this flood around the world,” Pitt said, wrote in the Daily Mail.
According to Pitt, such evidence has simply not been produced.
“Yet!” some, Esperante among them, might be quick to add.
