Noah's Ark found in Turkey. Great Evidence.

"And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat. And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen." (Genesis 8:4-5)

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."

There have been several reported discoveries of the remains of Noah's Ark over the years, most notably a find by archaeologist Ron Wyatt in 1987. At the time, the Turkish government officially declared a national park around his find, a boat-shaped object stretched across the mountains of Ararat.

Did you catch it? Read it again. Every time you read it (praying) God will show you something new! It doesn't say mountain. It says "tops of the mountains" and "mountains of Ararat"

Where are the mountains of Ararat?

Noah's ark is real, the bible is the truth. Read the true story of finding Noah's Ark and the artifacts found there. In Turkey there is a museum now built near the ark. Even the anchor stones are still there to see. Did lava really preserve this ancient bible artifact? Discover for yourself. Dig into Ron Wyatt's discoveries.

WHATS NEW: This exact location in Turkey is not the same as the recently discovered wooden ice chamber in Turkey. April 26, 2010 news came of a "Noah's Ark" found. It's an interesting find. It's said to be located on Mt. Ararat inside a cave with a solid wooden wall, entombed within layers of glacial ice and volcanic rock. It has been preserved, samples taken, yet unknown the exact purpose of this chamber. The finders (Chinese and Turkish) are sure their site is very important, but more evidence and proof is needed as to what exactly it is. What was it's purpose and where did the wood come from? If this is true it's exciting to see this wood has been preserved. It could be another piece to what Ron discovered in 1970s. To give credit only to Ron is not exactly right as you'll see who first discovered this odd shape down below.

This blog is not about that find, but about the well documented location of "Noah's Ark" resting in the mountains of Ararat that Ron Wyatt discovered.

Path of the Ark (Boat)

According to some sites this is the direction of the flow down the mountain. So I made up a image from googleearth showing the direction this may have taken. This mountain is called "Walls of Heaven". The landing point at the top has had some significant ancient evidence found.

1960 Original Discovery from Airplane.

The picture was taken in 1959 by the Turkish Captain Ilhan Durupinar during a NATO mapping mission. (He was still alive in Sept. 2007.)

While routinely examining aerial photos of his country, a Turkish army captain suddenly gaped at a picture... There, on a mountain 20 miles south of Mt. Ararat, the biblical landfall of Noah's Ark, was a boat-shaped form about 500-515 feet long. The captain passed on the word. Soon an expedition including American scientists set out for the site.

At 7,000 feet, in the midst of crevasses and landslide debris, the explorers found a clear, grassy area shaped like a ship and rimmed with steep, packed-earth sides. Its dimensions are close to those given in Genesis: 'The length of the ark shall be 300 cubits, the breadth of it 50 cubits, and the height of it 30 cubits,' that is, 450x75x45 feet. A quick two-day survey was made. A scientist in the group says "a ship-like object that has almost unbroken symmetry."

Global Flood Model

If there was a Flood, most living things would have perished, and so we would expect a 'cut-off' point at this time. In other words, going into the past, we should reach a period of time in which there is a sharp reduction in the number of specimens compared to the period just older than that, and as we went forward in time, we would expect a gradual buildup, as plant and animal populations recovered their numbers.

Such a study has been done by Dr Robert Whitelaw. Using the 15,000 published dates, he grouped them into 500 year 'blocks' and found a dramatic drop-off about 5,000 years ago, with a worldwide distribution (Speak to the Earth, Ed. G. Howe. Presb. & Ref. Pub. Co, p.. 331).

Interesting Youtube Videos.


  1. Interesting !

    Nice blog you have too :)

  2. Jos, I'm hoping you can link to the original source of this page: I hope that you will change what copy was written by me... so as it doesn't exactly match mine. Google searches the web and will penalize ranks because of duplicate information. The photos of course are not mine, you may need to get your own permissions to use them? Not sure if they are in the public domain. But make sure you give them credit and links. I did get permission from each source. You can add a link to my page especially to some of the put-together images. A few parts I quoted but was given permission to use quotes from the handful of sites I've gained info from.

    The last video you have, you should note that it's not the Durupinar site in the video, it's a separate story supposedly of a cave inside the mountain. Not anywhere near the "boat shape" and evidence of the actual Noah's Ark site that Ron Wyatt discovered. I don't own this discovery just wish I'd get a link or two for putting some of it together. Perhaps you could add links to several of the documented sites, they'd appreciate it too. That does help google rank to have some outgoing links that are related to your topic. Thanks so much!! Again here's the link: . :) God bless!!
