Noah's Ark Update from Randall Price posted by Henry B. Smith Jr. MA

A Critique of the Claim of Noah’s Ark Ministries International of the Discovery of a Wooden Structure on Mount Ararat
by Dr. Randall Price Ph.D. and Don Patton, Ph.D.

Introduction

Noah’s Ark Ministries International (NAMI) announced that on October 2009 it had reached the remains of a large wooden structure on Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey. The organization has declared 99% certainty that the structure is Noah’s Ark and has claimed Turkish academics and the local government of Ağri province support this conclusion. The location of the site has been kept a secret, but NAMI claims it has applied for it to be given the status of a World Heritage Site to protect it from possible looters. NAMI has conducted an extensive media tour in China to raise millions of dollars in funds with the stated goal of mounting a “scientific expedition” to thoroughly explore the structure.

Editorial note: This report is available on Randall Price's website, a trusted scholar and friend of the ABR ministry. However, we encourage readers to prayerfully weigh the arguments of both NAMI and Dr. Price in ascertaining whether Noah's Ark has really been discovered by NAMI on Mt. Ararat. 

Wall Uncovered Near Egyptian Sphinx posted by Henry B. Smith Jr. MA

The two sections of mud-brick wall, which stretch for 132 meters (433 feet) in total, have been dated to the reign of Thutmose IV, the council said in an e-mailed statement. According to ancient Egyptian texts, the pharaoh built the enclosure after the Sphinx appeared to him in a dream complaining that it was being choked by sand.
