Questions About The Story Of Noah

It's all over the news that a group claims they have found the remains of Noah's Ark on Mt. Ararat. Of course the group knew they would find Noah's Ark there.

As believers in the literal truth of the Bible, they knew it was there.

Even so, the explorers who say they found seven large wooden compartments beneath snow and volcanic debris near the peak of Mount Ararat can be forgiven their excitement.

'It's not 100 per cent that it is Noah's Ark, but we think it is 99.9 per cent that this is it,' said Yeung Wing-cheung, a filmmaker working with the 15-strong team of fundamentalist Christians exploring the Turkish mountain. Read more:

But Mike Pitt, a British archaeologist, said the evangelical explorers had yet to produce compelling evidence.
He added: 'If there had been a flood capable of lifting a huge ship 4km up the side of a mountain 4,800 years ago, I think there would be substantial geological evidence for this flood around the world. And there isn't.' Read more:

Nicholas Purcell, a lecturer in ancient history at Oxford University, said the claims were the 'usual nonsense'. He added: 'If floodwaters covered Eurasia 12,000ft deep in 2,800BC, how did the complex societies of Egypt and Mesopotamia, already many centuries old, keep right on regardless?' Read more:
Now for my questions about the story of Noah. Supposedly water is a finite resource, so where did all the water come from if as the story goes, the water covered even the tallest mountain peaks????? And second, where did all that water go when it receded?????? And is total flooding of the world what will happen if all the ice caps and glaciers melt????
Just noticed on the graphic about a group in Maryland building a replica of the Ark and they have been working on it for 30 years. How was Noah able to build the Ark and still make a living for himself and his family???


  1. There are as many holes in this story as there are in the heads of the imbeciles who believe it.

    God save me from God stories.

    verification word: fured. Har har har har.

  2. It amazes me the lengths that Christians like these will go to justify their nutter beliefs.

    The Ark story is no more believable than Jack and the Beanstalk. It's a fable....and as is mentioned in the graphic, it's not even AN ORIGINAL fable.

    There is ZERO evidence for a great flood. Or an Ark. Or a Noah. Or god for that matter. Sigh.

  3. what can I add?...grasping at straws comes to mind..
