Archaeologists Think They Discovered The Real Noah’s Ark

Over the course of over a year, scientists from three universities in Turkey and the US have examined the rock and soil in the well-known Durupinar formation on Turkey’s highest peak, Mount Ararat.

They think the location, which resembles a boat, might include the wreckage of the fabled Noah’s Ark.

According to the biblical story of Noah, God gave Noah the order to construct a massive ark in order to protect his family and pairs of animals from an approaching flood that was intended to eradicate all of the evil and wickedness that was rife on Earth.

It is believed that approximately 5,000 years ago, after a 150-day flood, Noah’s Ark came to rest on the Ararat mountains.

It is currently thought by researchers that they have discovered signs of human habitation from between 3000 and 5500 BC close to the boat-shaped structure in the highlands.

According to AICU vice rector professor Faruk Kaya, the study of rocks and soil from the mountain’s distinctively shaped area reveals evidence of human activity in the area, timed to the years after the flood described in the myth of Noah’s Ark.

According to The Daily Mail, Kaya states“In terms of dating, it is stated that there was life in this region as well. This was revealed in the laboratory results.”

But a biblical account does not prove human action. Those looking to locate Noah’s Ark have given the Durupinar formation a lot of thought as a possible ark resting spot over the years.

Despite the excitement, archaeologists have continually reiterated over the years that the creation is natural, not the product of a petrified shipwreck, and that there is no geologic record of a global flood like the one portrayed in religious texts. It’s also debatable if a more localized flood was feasible, as some people think.

According to the experts, it is not yet feasible to claim that Noah’s Ark was actually located at the Durupinar site.

Hurriyet, a Turkish news outlet, quoted project researcher Faruk Kaya as saying, “With the dating, it is not possible to say that the ship is here. We need to work for a long time to reveal this. In the next period, we agreed to carry out a joint study under the leadership of ITU, Andrew University and AICU. Three universities will continue their work in this field in the future.”

As of right now, Hurriyet reports that the scientists cite evidence of “clayey materials, marine materials, and seafood found in the geological formation’s soil.

In 2021, the group of scientists refocused its attention on the area by investigating a variety of geological features, such as the limonite Durupinar formation, which resembles a ship similar to Noah’s Ark.

After conducting additional research, the team decided to analyze soil and rock samples collected from the nation’s highest peaks in a lab.

For millennia, there has been much discussion over the existence of God, Noah, his family, the animals under his care, and Noah’s Ark.

It will probably take some time to find any evidence of this incident, and only then will we know if it exists.
