Noah's Ark - Fact not Fiction

In response to the post on Noah's Ark, a reader sent in this link:

Noah's Ark - Fact not Fiction

Here is the statement I made in the previous post: "We know with 100% certainty that it ... is not "Noah's Ark" because "Noah's Ark" never existed. Noah's Ark is no different from Jack's Beanstalk."

Comments:
Let me summarize for those of you who don't want to take the time to read it.

We have some very grainy photos showing something that may be Noah's Ark on the side of Mt. Ararat; however, they could also be closeups of a toaster in a snowbank. They are really of such poor quality that you can't tell. We have chosen to believe for various and questionable reasons that this is the wreckage of Noah's Ark and have posted a website containing not a shred of evidence to support this belief. We're sure that God will reveal his noodly goodness in his own time and in his own way. God is good. Jesus is good. At one time the Earth had a lot more water than now. etc. . . We rock.


For the scientific version, see here:

That link Ian posted, since it seems to run off the screen and isn't copyable, is this.
 
You mean you guys don't believe the Ark is real? I shall have pity on your soul and ask my prayer group to remember you.

In other news, I caught a leprechaun in my back yard today. I'm hoping he'll show me to a pot of gold somewhere so I can buy some reindeer and fly up to the North pole to visit Santa. I probably should invite the Easter bunny and the Tooth Fairy 'cause they wanted to investigate his prices on fairy dust and colored eggs.

Sorry, I've got to go. My psychic said I'm supposed to leave my body tonight and visit with my dead relatives in the 5th spiritual realm. And, of course, my horoscope said I'm prone to be late doing things so I better go get ready for bed.

Watch out for those invisible beings.
 
Yep. That's it.

My HTML kung-fu was weak last night.

Thanks for the assist.
 
If it were a toaster, the goverments that own the mountain would discredit this instead of keeping people away from the sites.
 
Except that it probably brings hundreds of thousands if not millions of tourist dollars to the economy. Especially if the permitting is anything like K2, Anapurna or Everest. Crackpots with money tend to be viewed in a more indulging light than destitute crackpots.
