I am a Christian, but God never asks us to abandon reason and logic. I find this type of archaeology troubling. Many Christians become guilty of the same sort of pseudo science they accuse anthropologist of when they take a bone fragment and reconstruct an entire skeleton. Only here, essentially, we have a few wood chips and they call it Noah’s Ark.

There are better ways to prove the truth of the gospel; and none are better than a transformed heart.

Don't they find Noah's Ark every couple of years?

I thought it was in Turkey somewhere. . .

Tend to agree with Aeon here. God himself can't be proven scientifically so I don't know why believers get so hung up on having to have scientific validation.

Seriously, how many thousands of years will it take before people get the hint that the Noah's Ark story (and many, many in the Old Testament) is a narrative, a myth. I think the comparisons between the Great Flood in the Epic of Gilgamesh and our Christian flood narrative are far more useful and interesting than these hopeless archeological pursuits.

I agree with you. But I'm a heathen.

Are you referring to the "dust" verse? The way that word for "dust" is used actually means "that which is transient", not physical dust/dirt. It explains how humans are part of nature and fit into the cycle of nature (yes, according to the Christian creation narrative, evolution (to some extent) exists).

That's too bad because it's absolutely impossible.

Whatever Bono thinks about the Ark, that's what I believe.
