Mysteries of the Bible: Proof of Noah's Ark? - Christiane Amanpour Investigates

"Christianne Amanpour talks to a scientist who says there is proof of the great flood." from video introduction

Evidence Noah's Biblical Flood Happened, Says Robert Ballard

Dr. Robert Ballard, an acclaimed underwater archaeologist, explains the evidence

In an interview with Christiane Amanpour for ABC News, Robert Ballard, one of the world's best-known underwater archaeologists, talked about his findings. His team is probing the depths of the Black Sea off the coast of Turkey in search of traces of an ancient civilization hidden underwater since the time of Noah.

Ballard's track record for finding the impossible is well known. In 1985, using a robotic submersible equipped with remote-controlled cameras, Ballard and his crew hunted down the world's most famous shipwreck, the Titanic.

Now Ballard is using even more advanced robotic technology to travel farther back in time. He is on a marine archeological mission that might support the story of Noah. He said some 12,000 years ago, much of the world was covered in ice.

"Where I live in Connecticut was ice a mile above my house, all the way back to the North Pole, about 15 million kilometers, that's a big ice cube," he said. "But then it started to melt. We're talking about the floods of our living history."

The water from the melting glaciers began to rush toward the world's oceans, Ballard said, causing floods all around the world.

"The questions is, was there a mother of all floods," Ballard said.." from the article: Evidence Noah's Biblical Flood Happened, Says Robert Ballard

The Ark Encounter Is Not Biblically Accurate

"We had the opportunity to visit The Ark Encounter which is a replica of Noah’s Ark located in Williamstown, Kentucky. I have been eager to visit the attraction since its completion in 2016.

As we drove to Williamstown, I was not sure what to expect. I suppose my initial thoughts were just the sheer size of the ark itself. I never looked up the details, I hate to spoil surprises.

As I look back on our experience, I honestly felt like The Ark Encounter was a bait and switch. Draw Christians in to admire the Ark, but then immerse Christians in their Biblical beliefs.

That is why I have written this comprehensive review of The Ark Encounter. You will learn what is being taught as Biblical fact at this attraction. We go into detail and explain why these teachings are not Biblically accurate.

These untruths have great ramifications Christians should be aware of.

This visit, I will now share with you…

The Ark Encounter: Dinosaurs Existed With Adam And Eve

Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden as depicted at The Ark Encounter

Unfortunately, once we stepped foot inside the ark, the exciting experience quickly turned into a Biblical nightmare.

Within each level of the Ark, there are various points of interest to read and view. We noticed, each point of interest drilled into the mind of visitors the belief system of The Ark Encounter, not necessarily Biblical fact.

As we moved through the Garden of Eden section, which really had no business in “Noah’s Ark,” we saw a picture of Adam and Eve standing in the water with Dinosaurs off in the distance.

We all looked at each other in dismay at the imagery.." from the article: The Ark Encounter Is Not Biblically Accurate

Ark Strangeness

"In 1959, Turkish Captain Llhan Durupinar, discovered one of the 20th Century's greatest archeological enigmas while examining aerial photographs taken over Mount Ararat, two miles North of the Armenian-Iranian border. The matter was passed to the US who labeled the find as the Ararat Anomaly who began a secret 50 year research into what they believed could be Noah's Ark. But could this historical artifact really be found on Mount Ararat, or is it on Mount Judi, or even Takht-e-Suleiman?

Noah’s Ark location ‘probed by CIA using spy satellites’

"Noah's Ark tells the story of the great biblical flood that washed away the sinners of the world, sparing only Noah, his family and the world's animals.

Should the Ark ever be found, it would turn the common understanding of human history on its head as it would offer stunning proof of the timeline laid out in the Bible.

Daily Star Online can now exclusively reveal CIA spooks probed the suspected location of the Ark using satellite imagery from Mount Ararat.

Mount Ararat is believed by Biblical scholars to be the resting place of the Ark after the great flood, with some even claiming to have found the remains of a giant wooden structure on the peak in Turkey.

Declassified files from CIA archives reveal correspondence between spooks and members of the US Congress about a coordinated hunt for the Ark.

At least five sets of documents have been seen by the Daily Star Online which detail the CIA"s involvement in the hunt for Noah's Ark.

CIA bosses appear dismissive of requests for information from individuals including US Congressmen Bob Wilson and Bill Archer and US Senators John Danforth and Barry Goldwater.

But documents do imply the CIA had used satellite imagery and aerial photography to probe Mount Ararat for any trace of Noah's Ark.." from the article: Noah’s Ark location ‘probed by CIA using spy satellites’
