N211:  Noah's Ark is on Mount Ararat


Edited by Greg Neyman



Noah's Ark came to rest on Mount Ararat, and we can expect to find it there

  1. The Bible says in Genesis 8:4 that the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat.  It did not specifically name Mount Ararat

  2. The mountains of Ararat is a large mountainous region which contains Mount Ararat.  It could have come to rest on Mount Ararat, or it could have landed on another mountain hundreds of miles away

  3. The ark would no longer exist.  A minimum of 4,500 years of weathering would have destroyed the wood.  If it were entombed in a glacier, the ice would have crushed it, contorted it, and separated it into many pieces

  4. If Noah settled by the ark, he probably would have dismantled it and used the wood to construct buildings

  5. You can find it yourself!  Download Google Earth, and go to coordinates 39º 42'26.15 N, 44º 17'28.62 E (Mt Ararat)
