In order to survive the storm, God instructed Noah to build a massive ark, like never seen before. He was given the exact material and dimensions that would be required to build such a ship.
The dimensions were “300 cubits long, 50 cubits wide, and 30 cubits tall,” which is equivalent to 450 x 75 x 45 ft, not to mention it was 3 stories high.
Finding The Ark
According to the story in Genesis, after the worldwide flood, Noah’s ark came to rest on the ‘mountains of Ararat’ in modern-day Turkey.
Could it possibly be that centuries later, scientists have finally unveiled new evidence about what really happened?
Come In Pairs
According to biblical scrips, not only did God tell Noah to bring members of his family on board, but he was also instructed to bring along other things that would be essential to repopulate the earth.
Included sample groups of different animal species, that would be released to roam free after the flood.
A Hong Kong-based group called Noah’s Ark Ministries International (NAMI ) are devoted to digging up all evidence they can find regarding Noah’s Ark.
While many experts don't take NAMI's findings, seriously, there are some that believe that they may be on to something. One "ark hunter" believes that they might have finally uncovered the key to the ark’s last known location.
Fiction or Non-Fiction
As exciting as these findings may be, most of their past findings, and others before them, have been debunked.
Like in 1955, when a French explorer reported that he found a five-foot wood beam beneath a glacier on Mount Ararat. While it was verified that the wood beam was about 5,000 years old, the explorer eventually admitted that he brought it from a nearby village.
