According to recent findings by scientists, the Biblical Noah’s ark may be real. Even though science and religion often have conflicting explanations for different things, they seem to agree on this one. Scientists may have found evidence of the resting place of Noah’s ark.
Has The Boat Been Found?
According to the Bible, Noah’s ark was on the Mountains of Ararat. Archaeologists and historians now believe that they may have found the ark in Turkey. A team of explorers believes that they have found the remains of the ark under snow and volcanic debris in Turkey.
The evidence to support the existence of the remains of Noah’s ark is not consistent. Explorers, scientists, and historians seem to have conflicting reports. Scientists believe that if there was a worldwide flood, there would be evidence in the soil and water levels to support it.
We are All Related to Noah
Scientists have not been able to find DNA evidence to support the Biblical story of Noah. If the flood destroyed the entire world except for Noah’s family, that would mean that we are all related to him. Scientists believe that they would be able to trace DNA evidence back to it. It would be possible to trace the DNA of animals back to the animals that were saved in Noah’s ark during the worldwide floods.
How Did Noah Survive The Storm?
Most scientists find it difficult to believe that Noah could survive the floods if the Biblical story is true. They argue that it would take an extraordinarily big and strong ship to accommodate Noah, his entire family, and pairs of all animal species. If the Titanic could not survive an iceberg, it is difficult to believe that a wooden boat could survive a flood big enough to wipe out humanity.
The Ark Encounter Theme Park
The Ark Encounter Theme Park gives you the chance to experience life inside Noah’s ark. The park is inside a real-life replica of Noah’s ark. The park, located in Grant County Kentucky, was opened on July 7 2016. It is operated by Answers in Genesis (AIG).
Animals Get In Two by Two
According to the Bible, God instructed Noah to get the animals in the ark two by two. He asked Noah to bring seven pairs of clean animals and a pair of clean animals to the ark. He was also to bring his family and the essentials for starting a new life after the floods.
Noah’s Ark Ministries International
The Noah’s Ark Ministries International (NAMI) claims to have made one of the biggest archeological discoveries in the world; Noah’s ark. The group is dedicated to uncovering evidence to support the Biblical story of Noah. There have been critics who think NAMI findings are unreliable and some researchers who believe in them.
Could It Be Real?
Even though there have been some findings to support the existence of Noah’s ark, it is not yet possible to say whether or not they are reliable. Various researchers have had different findings and reports on the story. Until scientists find irrefutable proof, it may be difficult to say whether or not the Biblical story is true.
What Do The Syrians Say?
The Syrians have a different opinion from most historians. They feel that Mount Judi was the last resting place of Noah’s ark. According to Josephus, the remains of the ark were at the ‘place of descent.’ It refers to Mount Judi and not Ararat. Armenians were shown the remains of the ark, and they believe that Noah’s ark was on Mount Judi until the 11th century.
Conflicting Internal Reports
Scientists do not agree on the final resting place of the ark. While some believe that it rested on Mount Ararat, others feel that that would be impossible. Dr Andrew Snelling is one of the scientists that do not believe that the ark rested on Mount Ararat.
What Did The Ark Look Like?
It may not be possible to get an accurate description of the ark. However, early theologians such as Augustine and Origen may have had a better idea than we do. Present-day scholars have made attempts to determine the shape of the appearance of the ark including the material and dimensions.
The Legend of Ziusudra
The story of Noah is familiar. It is a lot like the tale of King Ziusudra. In the story, Ziusudra built a boat to save as many people as he could when the gods decided to destroy the world using floods. Just like Noah, Ziusudra saved his people from doom.
Noah’s Ark Ministries International (NAMI) Discoveries
NAMI claims to have found Noah’s ark during their quest to find Mt. Ararat. Members of the group claim to have entered the ark. According to them, it was divided into different parts. The wood was dated to 4,800 years ago.
The Material of The Ark
Noah’s ark must have been built from strong material to survive the floods. According to the King James Version of the Bible, it was built from Gopher wood. It is difficult to know the tree that produces this wood. It, however, must have been strong enough to accommodate Noah, his family, and a zoo’s worth of animals.
The Findings of Marco Polo
Marco Polo was a famous explorer. He stopped by Mount Ararat during his travels to see if he could find the ark. Polo noticed that the mountain had the shape of a cube and it was difficult to get a proper look because the snow never melted. He abandoned the quest a few days later.
The Biblical Story
The story of Noah’s ark is common in different faiths including Islam, Christian, Baha’i, and Jewish faiths. The Biblical story explains that Noah built an ark to save himself and his family from worldwide floods that destroyed humanity.
Dr Snelling’s Findings
Dr Snelling finds it difficult to believe in the history. He says that the Biblical reference would mean that the mountains were already formed at the time of the floods. It appears impractical to him since such a significant occurrence would change the geology of world.
Professor Raul Esperante
Professor Raul Esperante from California works with the Geoscience Research Institute. He has dedicated his time to visiting different sites close to the mountain. He looks for leads and clues that may provide answers or information regarding the resting place of the ark.
NYPD Solves a High-Profile Turtlenapping
The New York City Police Department makes headlines every day, but it is not every day that the NYPD makes headlines for solving a turtle kidnapping case. But kudos go to the NYPD for solving the disappearance of a beloved resident of Alley Pond Environmental Center in Queens, 100-year-old African spurred tortoise, Millennium.
A Century of Millennium at Alley Pond
Millennium could have been a youthful, 11-year-old turtle when the 655-acre Alley Pond Park was acquired by the City of New York in 1929. When Millennium found his, her, or its way to the park, the Alley Pond was the source of water that the town of Flushing used for, well, flushing. Millennium survived the construction of the Long Island Expressway across the park, the creation of a golf course, and the founding of the Alley Pond Environmental Center at 228-06 Northern Boulevard in Queens in 1972.
Or maybe Millennium wasn’t around for any of those events. Although Millennium undoubtedly weighs about 100 pounds, and is larger than many of the children who come to visit him every day the park is open, the turtle rescuers who found the intrepid animal believe he could be a mere 17 years old or possibly as much as 100 years old. Either way, visitors to the park regularly ask to see him. And that is how they learned he was missing.
A Shocking Tortoise Disappearance
When visitors asked to see Millennium on the afternoon of Tuesday, July 18, 2017, Millennium was nowhere to be found. The attendants had no difficulty locating Millennium’s companion turtle Mini-Me, but even checks of video surveillance cameras showed no sign of the celebrity turtle. We think of tortoises as moving slowly, but actually they can move quickly, blending in with trees and grasses, so the park staff held out hope that Millennium might just be taking a little vacation looking for a different source of grass and grubs. But when there was no trace of Millennium the next day, they had no choice but to call the police. They were afraid they had a Code 597, abuse of an animal.
Millennium Returns from Connecticut
Fortunately, a Connecticut resident with a conscience made the reunion of Millennium with his young fans possible. And helped the police nab the turtlenappers’ accomplice Shawn Waters in the process.
Thirty-seven year old Shawn Waters loves turtles. He kept small turtles and other animals in the apartment he shared with his mother in Queens. On the afternoon of July 18, Waters was approached by two men who had cut a hole in the back of Millennium’s enclosure and absconded with the famous reptile. They made a deal with Waters to sell him the stolen turtle, and Waters started to take Millennium home in a stolen shopping cart. But no sooner did he have Millennium in his clutches than he realized his mother would never let him keep Millennium at home.
Waters hatched a plan to cover up his crime and get a smaller turtle his mother would approve. A man in Stamford, Connecticut had placed an ad on Craigslist to sell his musck turte. Waters struck a deal to swap reptiles and get $300 cash in the process. (Ordinarily, a turtle of Millennium’s 2 foot by 2-1/2 foot size and gentle watermelon-eating habits would have fetched about $2500, according to park officials.) Waters, who does not own a car, took a commuter train with Millennium to Connecticut, where he sealed the deal.
But by this time the police were checking turtle transactions on Craigslist. They located the buyer, who surrendered the turtle, which was returned safely to Alley Pond Park.
Waters was arrested and later sentenced to six months in jail at Rikers Island. His mother reports that he hopes to get his license to work as a security guard back when he gets out of jail.
