Quote# 24517

The Ark is on Mt Ararat in Turkey. The US Air Force photographed it in the 1950s as they were concerned it might be a Russian missile base. Noah did not need it to build his house as they were not staying on top of the mountain. The Ark is completely frozen in ice, and 2 out of every 7 years it melts just enough for a small portion of the Ark to be exposed. Some decades ago there was an earthquake that produced a huge gash in the side of the mountain, thus making it distinguishible from the other mountains in that range, and also it caused a portion of the Ark, perhaps a quarter of it, to slide several hundred meters down the mountainside. This is all well documented, so don't bother asking me for sources. Do your own research.

Prove it. Oh, you can't. Might just be a shadow. You have nothing to back this ridiculous claim up.

WRONG!

The item spotted by a US recon aircraft in the 50's has been identified by high resolution satellite imagery to be a rock formation.

Next!

My own research says you're full of it.

The Bible says the ark came to rest on the \"mountains of Ararat\", not Mt. Ararat. Read the friggin' Bible itself, not your kindergarten cartoon Bible story book, half-wit.

This is all well documented, so don't bother asking me for sources. Do your own research.

I did. They say you're full of crap. \"Sightings\" of the ark are about as credible as sightings of the abominable snowman or UFOs.

You made the claim, you post the research. You see, how it works is that the guy who makes the extraordinary claim needs to back it up.

Of course, the reason you don't post the \"research\" is because it doesn't exist. (Yes, I saw that old episode of \"In Search Of,\" too. Just because Leonard Nimoy looked gravely at you from the TV set doesn't make it true.)

Another Fundie Urban Myth.... yawn!

\"This is well documented...\"

There is not a shred of evidence to support this bullshit claim and there never was.

\"..don't bother asking me for sources.\"

Because you don't have any and you know it.

This is well documented...
So are chariot wheels at the bottom of the Red Sea, UFOs in the sky, aliens at Area 51, ghosts in old houses, and the 'fact' that the US itself was behind 9/11. They've all got 'plenty of evidence' for them. The quality of the evidence, however...

I did. Turns out it dosn't snow on Mt. Arafat. Also thousands of Muslims make a pilgramige there every year. I'm sure someone would have known about it before hand.

I would, but I don't have an account at crazyfundieconspiracytheories.com

One solitary shred of evidence for that?
Your colon doesn't count.

You are wrong. There has been no ark found.

Osiris, you're mistaken there. True, Muslims visit Mt Arafat in Saudi Arabia as part of the Hajj, but it's not the Biblical Mt Ararat. That's in Turkey and it's peak is permanantly snow covered (and Ark-free).

In two words, urban legend. The files of the KGB and CIA plus classified information from the files of the army have been disclosed and they don´t mention any ark.Besides, remember the golden rule, if it´s well documented and you use it as a proof, you must give sources. It´s up to you to demonstrate your claims, not us, because you used it as \"evidence\", I repeat, not us. It´s not up to us to do that research, since we don´t care a bit if the Bible is literarilly interpreted or not.

If it's all well documented, why do I need to find 'em?

Always a sure sign of a good argument. ;-)

I saw the Jack Chick comic too. I was smart enough to realize it was bullshit, though.
This one has been debunked for a couple of decades, now. Where have you been?

The ark is there, and inside there's a lot of fossilized dinosaur poop.

NonProphet

Yes, plenty of documented evidence. Just like all that evidence for UFOs, Bigfoot, the Loch Ness monster, Mothman, Chupacabra, and telekinesis.

You should pick a more interesting urban legend, Anon.

I've just finished reading Tim Powers fantasy novel, Declare. You're wrong. The \"ark\" on Mount Ararat is actually a Castle full of evil Djinn, one of whom was Soviet Russia's Guardian Angel...

You mean that Turkey might have allowed a Russian base on their territory?!

Yeah, sure...

I remember getting presented with this as fact in my Religious Education class when I was 12. The reason they gave for no-one confirming it was that the area was controlled by despots who wouldn't let good honest xtian researchers examine it.

Even then the whole class thought it was BS.
