With the recent religious debates going on here I thought I'd pose a somewhat hypothetical, yet very interesting question. We've all heard of "Noah's Ark". Well, over the past few years some interesting satellite images were taken of Mt. Ararat in Turkey. Mt. Ararat is where the ark would have become stuck, according to the Bible. Here's a story from Space.com that includes a very interesting image: SPACE.com -- Zooming in on Noah's Ark? Satellites Search for Ancient Artifact Here's a story from National Geographic from a few years later: Noah's Ark Quest Dead in Water -- Was It a Stunt? The Turkish government has not allowed any expeditions to go up the mountain since rumors of the Ark possibly being preserved up there originally surfaced. Odd.. Last year more images were taken, and the measurements of the "object" in the image match the measurements that the Ark would have been. CNN.com - Satellite closes in on Noah's Ark mystery - Mar 13, 2006 So, my question is this. If an expedition does make it up there and finds out that there is in fact a giant ark preserved in the ice, would those of you who consider yourselves "atheists" have a mental dillema? I'm saying "if", to be fair. It's a fair question though because an expedition will most likely occur eventually. If an ark matching the description and measurements of the ark from the Bible is found up there, on the same mountain that the Bible says it "landed" way back in the day, I'd say that unless you are set on not believing no matter what, that the evidence would be conclusive. It will be very interesting if archaeologists are ever able to get to the bottom of this... er the top of it and figure out what it is. The evidence here would be far too much to be considered simply a coincidence. The ark should be around 500 or so feet long, give or take which is close to two football fields in length. (The ark was said to be 300 cubits long and the exact measurement of a "cubit" is still debated, since there is no exact way to know for certain.) Anyway, it would be next to impossible for somebody to make an ark on their own on the top of the mountain just to try to trick people.. So if an expedition took place and it was confirmed that an ark matching the description of "Noah's Ark" was found atop Mt. Ararat, how would it effect you? Would it change your mind about anything? Remember that this is a hypothetical question.
