Noah’s Ark found?

Noah’s Ark Discovery Exciting, Tenuous:  Experts are waiting for scientific evidence to prove that the relic found on Mount Ararat in Turkey by a group of Chinese and Turkish evangelical explorers is in fact the one and only Noah’s Ark. A Dutch Ark researcher was reported as saying there is a “tremendous amount of solid evidence” that the wooden structure found there is in fact the Ark mentioned in the biblical story in Genesis, but an archaeologist from Stony Brook University in New York remains skeptical, saying “I don’t know of any expedition that ever went looking for the ark and didn’t find it.” The evangelical group says carbon dating suggests the wood is of correct age, but scientists say this method only tells how old the wood is, not how old the structure is. Some even question the possibility that a wooden artifact exposed to air could have survived from ancient times. Most scientists appear to be waiting for empirical evidence and/or the opportunity to conduct independent examinations to support the discovery. (New York Daily News- 4/29/10)
