Hey, my bad, I was off base there, for some reason I thought it was the ark of the covenant, that is in ethiopia. Noah's ark is still at large, perhaps.

An old buiding is not an Ark.

I'm not sure what drugs they were taking but I sure don't want any.

"I can't imagine what it could be if it isn't the Ark"

Well, how bout you ask someone else with a bit more imagination? But it's good to see they are approaching this with scientific rigor. And a complete lack of imaginiation.

With all these searches for the Ark, has no one ever considered that a boat, made as it were of wood, might have maybe, I dunno, rotted into nothingness at some point in the last 6000 years?

And why is it the search for Noah's Ark - singular? I mean, the Bible clearly says he had one and so did each of his three sons. I don't recall the Bible saying each of the three sons had unfortunate accidents on the way, depleting the earth's animal population by 3/4.

And why is it always animals two by two? The Bible says they took 7 of each clean animal and 2 of each unclean animal. You know, I'm starting to think maybe some of these people are kinda just making stuff up as they go along and ignoring anything that suggests maybe they are (a) wrong or (b) barking mad ; )

The cubic area it would take to house all of the species on earth like sardines far exceeds the volume of even 4 arks. Although if things keep going the way they are they all might fit in one fairly soon.

If that's the case, it's going to be the biggest news since the Pharoh's tomb with Howard Carter.

The discovery was apparently of some "petrified wood". Even ossification not to mention fossilization takes a huge amount of time as in hundreds of thousands to millions of years. This story is the joke all of us thought it was. No fossilized human built structures exist. Nothing man has made out of wood is old enough to be fossilised.

"There's this idea, if we can prove that the ark existed then we can prove that the story existed, and more importantly, we can prove that God existed,"

Oh, yes, we need proof that 'god' got so pissed off at the naughty people of the world that he drowned them all (except for one family). Ain't that gonna scare us all into becoming all 'holy' in order to avoid the vengeful destructive power of 'god'. Makes me wonder who that 'god' was and why a supposedly 'loving god' would do such a horrible thing.

hmmm how interesting tell me then how do we have archives of things that cave men made what the pharos made ect.. and of course we don't have anything that the pioneers built do we?
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.

That one family was the only family who believed and trusted in the Lord. God told the people that they need to 'clean up their act' through Noah. They still did worldly things, but they were warned. The 'naughty people of the world' didn't piss of God, they saddened him.

And you can be sure that this isn't the ARK because it is fossilized? tell me them do you know what gopher wood is? the scientist don't know what that is and no one has ever seen it therefore it could very well be fossilized since we are speaking of a type of wood no one knows anything about!
first they claim it is fossilized no proof yet exists.

Gopher wood? maybe you could enlighten us or provide a source? backup? something other than something no one has ever heard of.

I suggest you look up fossilisation and the process any material must go through to be fossilized. First ossification must occur and then the end of the process is fossilisation., many websites have better and more eloquent not to mention more understandable explanations than I.
