Re: Noah’s Ark

UPDATE: See Eric Cline on Good Morning America talking about the discovery here.

—————————————

In regards to the recent supposed find (again) of Noah’s Ark I’ll simply point people to an interview with renown archeologist Eric Cline and others.   Here is a good comment:

“I’m fascinated by people’s fascination in Noah’s ark when there are many more solvable mysteries out there, and yet that might be exactly what draws them to it.  They know it’s inherently unsolvable,” says Mr. Cline, an associate professor of ancient history and archaeology at George Washington University and author of “From Eden to Exile: Unraveling Mysteries of the Bible,” recently published by National Geographic.

I agree with others that this recent claim of finding Noah’s ark is dilettantism at its finest!

Also consider getting his little book (which I need to get too) Biblical Archaeology: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions).

  1. I think the idea that the ark may still exist on the mountains of Ararat is a neat daydream. It would be fun if it were really there. And I think that is what fuels it for a lot of people. But it can’t be any kind of a deal-breaker, I mean, it’s Noah’s ark. It’s not like if they found Jesus’ tomb with Jesus’ body proven to still be in there. Noah’s ark is fun, that’s all, as far as I’m concerned.

  2. I think it would be neat if they found something like Noah’s Ark and I don’t think it’s stupid to look for it. I hope some day they find something that appears to be like Noah’s Ark desribed in the Bible.
