Well Said!

So it could not have been a boat. Some sources say it was a pyramid shape. I’ve seen illustrations of Vimana that were that shape. So many Old Teatament stories suffer from distortion due to multiple translations and possibly deliberate changes that the principles might be true, but I would not trust the specifics to be accurate. I think ark hunters that are trying to find a boat are chasing their tails.

You don’t have to be a scientist to debunk this. No one seems to look at this myth from a boatowner’s perspective. It the Ark landed at 8000 feet up on a mountain, the Earth must have had 8000 more feet of water than it has now, and there would be a geological record of the water level all over the planet. Let’s do the math- the surface area of a sphere is 4/3*pi*r^3. The radius of the Earth is 3,958.75 miles at the equator. The current surface area is then 4/3*3.14*3968.75^3=2.397x10^11 square miles. The flooded surface area would be 4/3*3.14*(3968.75+(8000/5280))^3=2.620x10^11 square miles. The difference, the volume of water that is now missing, is 2.620x10*11-2.397x10^11=2.23x10^10 CUBIC MILES of water. SInce there is not a layer of ice thicker than 8000 feet, let alone a multiple of maybe 4 times this because ice does not cover more than about a quarter of the planet, WHERE DID THE WATER GO? I think you wasted your time and trip money going to the purported site on a mountaintop, no matter what the Bible says. The Ark would have to be able to fly to get to a mountaintop-it COULDn’t float there, at least not on this planet.

Since the ark emerged on 15 May 1948 (the same day as the State of Israel) it is obvious that the pierced vessel typifies the Messiah, and thus it will be rejected by man (by and large). Evidence is entirely irrelevant – it will be explained away if inconvenient. The effort the so-called scientific community has put into discrediting the site, proves that it is genuine. After all, the ark represents a direct assault on uniformitarianism, macro-evolution plus by inference on the Big Bang and heliocentrism – the academia cannot simply sit by and do sweet nothing. Probably one of the dumbest approaches is to point out that Ron Wyatt was a layman, as if God was in the habit of using PhD holders. A 4-year old would recognize it as the ark, particularly since neither the geological column nor all the other bogus has been rammed down it’s throat yet. Incredible what people believe if it comes from some university – a bit of scientific jargon and they stop believing their senses: “bananas are square and blue, they only appear curved shaped and yellow.”

Never heard of Deal. This site was first investigated by Ron Wyatt, an American amateur archaeologist in 1977. Wyatt was the forst person to use sub-surface radar in archaeology, as the Turks wouldn’t give a dig permit due to  Kurdish issues.

There is actually a Stele at the landing site shown above, with markings indicating the flood, ark, birds, and the 8 survivors.

Noah’s Ark and Atlantis – there are uncounted theories postulated as to their location(s) by so many experts that it’s difficult to keep track of them. Maybe they were real, maybe not. I personally believe they both were based on reality, but so far back in time that they are difficult to prove. I sincerely hope that researchers with greater resources than I continue to hunt for the elusive proof.
