Turkey: There is a general feeling that the long lost Noah’s Ark has finally been found. A group of clerics and some Hong Kong-based explorers claim that the remains of the ancient wooden vessel have been found on the Turkish mountain of Mount Ararat. Well, many might not buy the argument, but the group claims that the satellite imagery of the site provides a strong evidence.
‘It’s not 100 % that it is Noah’s Ark, but we think it is 99.9% that this is it,” said Yeung Wing-Cheung, a filmmaker working with the explorers. “The radio carbon dating of the wood is dead-on to be the approximate time frame of Noah’s Ark.”
There are no external images of the site and the Hong Kong-based group refuses to say precisely where the discovery was made until the Turkish government designates it as an archaeological site.
