More on Noah’s Ark?

In an update on the Mt. Ararat anomoly some speculate might be Noah’s Ark, Space.com published recently taken satellite photo.

It does look odd, but is it Noah’s Ark? To my untrained eyes it just looks like rock and ice.

Here is a radar image that makes the noted area look like a giant ledge on the side of the mountain.

Here is an annotated image, different from the first two. In this image it looks like it’s just part of the cliff. How in the world is an enormous boat going to stay on a cliff when snow and glaciers would likely be pushing it down?

I would love to find that under the ice and snow is a perfectly preserved ark, but these photos aren’t winning me over.

    Elle, are you aware that Christian archeologist Bob Cornuke agrees with your assessment? He lists 10 well-documented reasons in this article:

    For some reason the article isn’t linked to the homepage but I don’t know why not. Base Institute has a number of other interesting and well-researched articles on Biblical archeology, including Egyptian chariot wheels in the Red Sea! Have fun looking around.

    Elle,
    No matter how many times I look at those photos, I just can’t see it.

    If this is a true glacier then whatever lands/sits atop eventually gets covered and “moves” toward the bottom. If this is “the” ark it is probably resting on the ground with ice flowing over it… if… the ice hasen’t crushed it. Now, since the anomaly is at the top of the mountain, it is possible that the ice simply covers it and hasn’t crushed the larger wooden beams. (unlikely, but always possible without further evidence).

    It is also a distinct possibility that the Ark slid down and/or fell sideways down the side of the mountain, after weather eroded parts of the mountain.

    It is also possible that at the high altitude and being under ice, the wood did not rot.

    It would be interesting to find out that this is indead ice flowing over the Ark (which is the most likely Ark scenario).

    But, to me, it just looks like a cliff or an ice shelf.
