Above - probable Ark Shape

New evidence shows that there's a simple reason why Noah's Ark, after 10's pf expeditions, has not been found. Simply put:

"Because they have been looking for the wrong shape and design". Much new evidence shows that the true shape and design of Noah's Ark was more like: "A giant A-framed house-like roof, upon a chestlike ship's hull".

Click the above link entitled; "History of the search for Noah's Ark above to read about prior expeditions up to 2006, that have been looking for a box-barge like ark.

New evidence also shows that around the world as Noah's descendants moved away from Mt Ararat they left murals, paintings, rock carvings and mosaics. They even printed coins with this ark shape on it. In many of these memorials to the ark, they are shown with animals coming out of it.

Could this be Noah's Mummified remains?

possible remains of Noah

Also, there's evidence to show that when the ark is finally found, that the well preserved mummified remains of Noah, his wife, and Shem may be found entombed in the ark. Buried their by Noah's descendents.

 Historical Evidence

Isidore of Seville (560-636 A.D.) wrote: "Ararat is a mountain in Armenia, where the historians testify that the Ark came to rest after the Flood. So even to this day wood remains of it are to be seen there".

What has to be realized is that after Noah's Ark landed upon Mt. Ararat GOD gave man command to
worship only him.

Most of Noah's descendants disobeyed GOD, and worshiped things they should not. Noah in the eyes of his descendants was
worshiped as a The God of Eternal Life. Because he was the last of mankind from his time period to live according to scripture to almost the age of 1,000 years.  Also referred to as: "Last of The Antediluvians".-(these were those of the first among mankind like Adam and Eve, Methuselah, and last Noah
and his wife, who lived to be almost 1,000 years old). 

After Noah, people only lived to perhaps 120 years of age at the most. The archaeological finds known as The Epic of Gilgamesh, and The Elba Tablets of Circa scientifically / archaeologically verifies this. Both dated around 2200 B.C., state that Noah was worshiped as The God of Eternal life.  Although Noah , his wife, and Shem would not have approved of this, they were worshiped anyway.

1st century A.D. Jewish-Roman historian Flavius Josephus reported the ship was already being torn down. "It is said that a portion of the vessel still survives ... on the mountains ... and that persons carry off pieces of [it], which they use as talismans."

In Search of Noah's Ark

According to Genesis, Noah was a righteous man who was instructed by God to construct a large vessel to hold his family and many species of animals, as a massive deluge was coming to purify the world which had become corrupt.

Noah's Ark


Mount Ararat (16,940 feet, 5165 m) is the largest volcano in Turkey.  It is located in extreme northeastern Turkey, near the borders with Iran and Armenia. Armenia was the 1st Christian country.

The search for Noah's Ark is more than just the analysis of photographs.  In his new book, Ron Stewart has painstakingly assembled most of the available evidence, including historical, archeological, biblical, and legends.  

Anomaly on Mt Ararat taken in 1949 by U.S. DIA

The Ararat anomaly is an object appearing on photographs of the snowfields at the summit of Mount Ararat, Turkey.

Located in glacial ice at an altitude of 15,300 feet in 2003, some scientists say the imagery suggests that its length-to-width ratio is close to 6:1, similar to the description in the Book of Genesis.  Same anomaly as the above 1949 image above.

Has Noah's Ark finally been found?
or faked?

“I don’t know of any expedition that ever went looking for the ark and didn't find it,” said archeologist Paul Zimansky recently told National Geographic.

noah's ark

Original claim:
A group of Chinese and Turkish evangelical explorers say wooden remains they have discovered on Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey are the remains of Noah's Ark. The group claims that carbon dating proves the relics are 4,800 years old, meaning they date to around the same time the ark was said to be afloat. Read about this at: FoxNews

Claim the discovery was faked:
Now, someone within the Noah’s Ark Ministries camp is rubbishing the discovery.

Randall Price, an evangelical Christian, was apparently one of the original archeologists hired by the group. He has been circulating an email, alleging that the wooden beams were taken from a site near the Black Sea and then planted on Ararat.

Durupinar site

At the Durupinar is a large boat-shaped structure in the Tenderuk mountains of eastern Turkey, 6,300 ft above sea level. The Durupinar site was heavily promoted by adventurer and former nurse-anesthetist, the late Ron Wyatt in the 1980s and 1990s.  Geologists have identified the Durupinar site as a natural formation, but Wyatt's Ark Discovery Institute continues to champion its claims.

Lorence Collins, a retired geology professor from California State University, Northridge, joined the late David Fasold, a one-time proponent of the Wyatt site, in writing a scientific summary claiming the Durupinar location is "bogus."

"Evidence from microscopic studies and photo analyses demonstrates that the supposed Ark near Dogubayazit is a completely natural rock formation," said the 1996 paper published in the Journal of Geoscience Education. "It cannot have been Noah's Ark nor even a man-made model. It is understandable why early investigators falsely identified it."
