Where is the lost treasure of Noah's Ark?
Noah's Ark is a 4400 years old object that did not
carry gold or precious gems, but valued as a treasure for its historical and
biblical context, which is still in discussion. Expected to be found sunk in the
Dead Sea or covered by the sand dunes of the Arabic Desert, a revelation made
archeologist point their compasses to a new direction in 1959.
A Turkish airline pilot flying above the Ararat saw
an object similar to a giant boat at the top of the mountains. Stereo photos
taken during the flight revealed later that it was a ship incrusted in a strange
location. At the Geodetic Institute of Turkey, Dr. Brandenburger of Ohio State
University, in the United States, confirmed that the object in the pictures was
An expeditions to mount Ararat for scientific
testing blew a hole in the structure using dynamite and concluded that such
object has no archaeological interest keeping in mind that the wood of an
ancient ship would be petrified by then. In fact, the research team said that
such object was not made of wood.
However, research and expeditions continued for the
following decades bringing to account different theories, including ice and snow
on the top of Mount Ararat that could be responsible for the changes and
preservation of the structure. On the other hand, if it was not the Great Flood,
who brought a ship to the top of a snow-capped mountain 6,300 feet above sea
Mount Ararat Anomaly attracted the attention of Ron
Wyatt, an amateur archaeologist that visited Mount Ararat in 1977. He found the
size of the ship consistent with the biblical description and a radar scan found
three decks, two of them collapsed and the remaining with 144 rooms.
Wyatt took material from the shift and the
Galbraith Laboratories in Knoxville, Tennessee, proved that such material was
petrified wood. In 1991, Greg Brewer joined Wyatt's expeditions finding a
petrified antler in a side of the ship. Later Wyatt found red human hair and
extinct rodent hair, giving for granted that the ship was Noah's Ark, but new
studies and found evidences continue today.
