The Fox News website updated an article today entitled Has Noah’s Ark Been Found on Turkish Mountaintop? The article reports that:

A group of Chinese and Turkish evangelical explorers say wooden remains they have discovered on Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey are the remains of Noah’s Ark.

The group claims that carbon dating proves the relics are 4,800 years old, meaning they date to around the same time the ark was said to be afloat. Mt. Ararat has long been suspected as the final resting place of the craft by evangelicals and literalists hoping to validate biblical stories.

Yeung Wing-Cheung, from the Noah’s Ark Ministries International research team that made the discovery, said: “It’s not 100 percent that it is Noah’s Ark, but we think it is 99.9 percent that this is it.”

There are a couple of articles that express doubt about this find.

First, the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) posted an article Tuesday entitled Chinese Explorers Claim Noah’s Ark Find, in which Dr. John Morris expresses uncertainty about the find.

Second, the Christian Science Monitor posted an article yesterday entitled Doubt Cast on Noah’s ark found in Turkey, in which Dr. Randall Price of Liberty University is cited as expressing some grave doubts about the authenticity of the find.
