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.

I heard that the reason they believe it to be the ark is that they found a plank of wood with the words: 'Noah and Na'amah 4 eva' carved in it.

How can it be impossible to believe that things of that nature could have happened. I mean if you believe in God, then anything is possible right???

Read the Epic of Gilgamesh. The flood narrative in the Bible is the same story, except whoever wrote the Bible's version added a moral twist and decided to specify the dimensions of the ark. There may have been a period of rain and some flooding, but it probably didn't happen, but that doesn't matter because it's not the point of the narrative.

Well then why do you question me? You don't think it's possible either.
