I have watched 3 different documentaries on this. My gut says its on Mount Ararat in Turkey. The government there won't let good research teams on the mountain.
There is evidence our National Security people have incredible photographs of a huge wooden boat on this mountain taken from space! The government won't release this info.

Why do they call it an ark? Isn't it a boat? Or a wooden ship? I'm too lazy to look it up. TIA

I think Noah's Ark is at the very top of the Mount. Everest.Why wouldn't be there because it said that when it was the flood the flood was very high and since the Mount. Everest is the tallest mountain it could of been at the top the Ark could of crashed at the Mount Everest.

I think there is a right for immigrants to stay in the United States, because all of us,well all the people need money and we also need to take care of our families. Everybody has a problem,any kind of problem.Most of immigrant families have been seperated and that is not so good, people need there families.I don't think there is a good reason why they should send immigrants to their countries, only because they are not legal in the United States. Many people work, immigrants work you could even say they help people but some people think we take their jobs but no they think we are here to just mess with people but no everybody has a need to work they all have a reason to work. What i'm triyng to say is that everybody including immigrants should be nice

<quoted text> No bets , but there was waters above and below. Until after the flood there was no rain, just dew to water the ground. So there is waters above and waters below, divided. Maybe enough to cover. There is as much proof for this as there is for life beginning from nonlife.
Ummmmm. No. There isn't enough water currently on, below, or in the atmosphere to completely cover the earth. There may have been billions of years ago when the earths crust and atmosphere were still forming. Unfortunately, there would have been no Noah back then...

I very much enjoyed the Discovery Channel Special on Noah's Ark and that was indeed fascinating, and the debate rages on of course. It would be rather awsome if they found something like this. It seems mankind has been boating thru history for 10,000 or more years, be interesting to prove that too.
I still find it interesting myself. The parallels between Gilgamesh and Noah aren't that astonishing when you consider Abraham is believed to have came from the area between Iran and Turkey, while Gilgamesh (actual figure the myths are believed to be based on) came from Eastern Iraq. Maybe there was a regional flood that filled an important valley. Some dude filled his boat up with all the livestock he could fit on board and rode it out..would be cool to find a 10,000 year old boat. And as for the large size, no one believed the accounts of the massive boats that comprised the Chinese navy until the hull of one was actually found...

Having said that, a world wide flood never happened during mankind's existence on the planet...

And Noah, his family, and many of the animals would have died from the lack of oxygen and decreased air pressure...

We have all of those things but none of them are fossilized. The people claiming to have found the ark say the wood is fossilized and that takes a long long time. longer than any recorded history by factors.
so, let's get this right - the same nuts who think the world is 6000 years old rely on fossilisation, which takes millions of years , to prove an old folk-legend true? or did God Fossilise it by a miracle?

Dear Scutter:
The large mountains, as we have them today, did not exist until after the Flood when "the mountains arose and the valleys sank down" (Ps. 104:5-9, Gen. 8:3-8).
There is enough water in the oceans right now to cover the earth 8,000 feet deep if the surface of the earth were smooth.
The top 3,000 feet of Mt. Everest (from 26,000-29,000 feet) is made up of sedimentary rock packed with seashells and other ocean-dwelling animals.
Sedimentary rock is found all over the world. Sedimentary rock is formed in water.
Petrified clams in the closed position (found all over the world) testify to their rapid burial while they were still alive, even on top of Mount Everest.
So before making comments such as those so boldly next time address it as a question. This way you won't look quite so silly.:)
p.s. I'll take only half of that 100,000 thank you.
now that is what they call "Folly on Stilts"

and the biblenuts don't think the world is that old anyway, so they are always defeating their own crackpot notions.

Yes, Jeremiah, a large ship has indeed been found (and curiously ignored) on Mt. Everest. It was found by the very first people to summit on Everest: Sir Edmund Hilary and his local slave, Tensing Sherpa, in 1956. It had no masts and was exceedingly large and according to expedition records it appeared to be a cargo ship or a vessel that carried an abundant cargo. It has (very, very strangely) not been included in the diaries of the dozens upon dozens of subsequent Everest expeditions although much has been said about the massage parlor that has been established at base camp 2 at about 22,000 feet. The big question of course is if you've had your knackers waddled while wearing an oxygen mask at 22,000 feet, can you ever -- ever -- get the same satisfaction at sea level? Not a few marriages have foundered on this rock. Do you think this is part of God's plan? Or Satan's plan to doom us all?
