The Hong Kong-based team rebutted skepticism over their claims of finding Noah's Ark in Turkey. Two members of the search team that claims to have found Noah’s Ark on Mount Ararat in Turkey responded to skepticism by saying that there is no plausible explanation for what they found other than it is the fabled biblical boat that weathered a storm that raged 40 days and 40 nights and flooded the entire Earth.Noah's Ark Ministries International (NAMI) held a press conference April 25 in Hong Kong to present their findings and say they were “99.9 percent sure” that a wooden structure found at a 12,000-ft. elevation and dated as 4,800 years old was Noah’s Ark.members of the Chinese-Turkish team stood by their finding.“How can a ship be on a mountain?” Yeung Wing-cheung, one of six team members who entered the structure on Mount Ararat last October, told the Monitor today by telephone from Hong Kong.“The only record of a wooden structure on Mount Ararat is Noah’s Ark," Clara Wei, the team coordinator, also said today by telephone from Beijing. "So up to now I believe this is the most probable explanation. We don’t have another explanation." Turkish officials from Agri Province, the location of Mount Ararat, also attended this week’s press conference in Hong Kong. Lieutenant governor Murat Güven and Cultural Ministries Director Muhsin Bulut, both provincial officials, believe the discovery is likely Noah’s Ark, according to the announcement posted on the team's website.

Reminds me of the videos of the SUPPOSED Moon Landing by Neil Armstrong, and others, on July 20, 1969.

Since then, people have been accusing NASA of faking the whole Moon Landing thing on a Movie Lot in Hollywood California.

I personally do not believe this, as it is clear to me it was faked on a Movie Lot on Mars.

      <--- Genesis 7                  Genesis 9 --->
       
      And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters assuaged;
      2 The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;
      3 And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.
      4 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.
      5 And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen.
      6 And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made:
      7 And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up from off the earth.
      8 Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground;
      9 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark.
      10 And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark;
      11 And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf pluckt off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth.
      12 And he stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove; which returned not again unto him any more.
      13 And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
      14 And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, was the earth dried.
      15 And God spake unto Noah, saying,
      16 Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons' wives with thee.
      17 Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee, of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth.
      18 And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him:
      19 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark.
      20 And Noah builded an altar unto the Lord; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
      21 And the Lord smelled a sweet savour; and the Lord said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.
      22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

      It was my understanding years ago that how the JWs explained why we have animals killing animals and poisonous snakes and deadly plants etc was because god cursed the ground after Adam sinned. This scripture blows a hole in their doctrine if I’m correct. What’s your understanding of what GB teach on this issue and your thoughts on this scripture?
      In General 3:17 God curses the ground, and then in chapter 8 uncurses it for Noah.
      This is why we don't have weeds, thorns and thistles anymore. God took them away you see.

      The  ark  -  after  the  Bible....   ( for  all  JW...) 
      The dimensions of the ark are given in the Bible. The slave fixes an elbow like 44.5 cm, which is confirmed by archaeological finds. The size of the ark according to Genesis 6:15 was 300 cubits (long) x 50 (wide) x 30 (high). That's about 133 x 22 x 13 meters. According to biblical history, the ark had three floors. Each apartment had an area of 2,926 m². This leads us to a total area of 8,778 m² (2,926 x 3)
      In comparison, a football pitch in the Bundesliga in Germany has an area of 7,140 m². If we add the area behind the gate (about 3 meters) and next to the side lines (about 1.5 meters). ), this results in 7,881 m². It's not exactly the area of the ark that's even bigger, but to get a rough idea of the size, the comparison should be sufficient.

      The Ark must of been rectangular, like a shoe box the size of a football field. Many depictions of a large ship with a bow would have compromised the inner cubic footage.The ark in Kentucky,USA is an example of this error.  The ark was covered in black tar, they had no machinery to plane the timbers they used in the construction, the tar would fill the gaps in the timbers. There were no baby dinosaurs on the ark as some depict it.The event took place in 2370 B.C.E., the dinosaurs had died off long before then.
      The ark was a great witness to the people,but what was their attitude? God Loves Us and won't destroy us? Why did God speak to you Noah? Did Jehovah Know there would be apathy towards the Ark? Was there room for another 1000 people? The correlation of the people's attitude then and today, as Jesus brought out at Mathew 24:36-40, is accurate.

      Inside Noah's Ark
      The ark was built with "gopher wood," and caulked with pitch. Passengers remained safe inside, until the waters of the flood subsided. Nearly one year later.
      VOLUME: 1,396,000 cubic feet
      GROSS TONNAGE: Nearly 14,000 tons
      CAPACITY: Equivalent to more than 500 railroad stock cars
      It could hold more than 125,000 sheep sized animals

    • I voted your remark "sad" because it truly is. It is a meaningless non-sequitur with no relevance ... which you think is profound.
    • Maybe you jw's will get lucky and your hero Hitler will start ruling again.
    • Trump is a pugilist, fully capable of vulgarity. It doesn’t really bother me. In some regards, it is refreshingly candid. It is not for nothing that the Bible calls the political nations “beasts.” They behave that way—ripping and tearing at each other and indeed, at anyone who gets in their way. So I am not put off by someone who drops the pretense and carries on to call a spade a spade. As much as ones might like the facade of being “presidential,” and of respecting the “dignity” of fellow world leaders, ought they not produce results to earn that respect? The hospital operating room can expect awed dignity when it routinely save lives—conducting the most delicate of procedures. But if the results degenerate to indistinguishable from that of a butcher shop, surely that aura of admiration will fade. “Laws are like sausages. It’s better not to see them being made,” is the old saying, and it is the butcher shop comparison that wins out over the precision operating room. It almost does my heart good to see Trump brawling with his political counterparts as they do their utmost to preserve “dignity.”  Moreover, you would almost expect Jehovah’s (American) servants to see that. They don’t because they truly are apolitical. They follow politics hardly at all, and there is a fair number of them that consider even a comment about the topic as akin to ripping a loud one at the concert hall—it is just gauche—it is as though deliberately contaminating the soufflé with the street rock salt. The JW Governing Body works hard to keep the squabbles of politics out of the congregation and to safeguard its neutrality.  Keeping truly neutral is not easy. Geoffrey Jackson reflects on how (Australian) candidates of his youth offered dramatically different proposals regarding the military draft—a matter that would affect him greatly. Updating his struggle to the present—adapting it to brothers today who might be personally advantaged or disadvantaged by the proposals of a given political figure—he ventured on how some might truly strive to be neutral and yet in the back of their head was the thought: “I hope that idiot doesn’t come into power.” He said it about two years ago. It is impossible for me not to wonder what “idiot”—if there was one—he had in mind.  Of course, Witnesses are politically neutral due to their advocacy for God’s kingdom—the one of the Sermon on the Mount—“thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” “God’s will is done in heaven,” I tell the householder as I glance upward. “I mean, I guess it is—surely he has it all running smoothly up there—but it sure isn’t done on earth. Pockets of it here and there may be, but nobody would ever say that the world runs that way it does today according to God’s will. According to the prayer, we should not expect that until the kingdom comes.” Jehovah’s Witnesses don’t go campaigning for human governments because they are announcing God’s government which will tackle and solve the problems human governments consistently flounder on. If Witnesses today did reflect on national politics—and the particulars are replicated in many nations—they might reflect that Trump’s enemies are the “one world government” people of the humanist variety—180 degrees apart from the one world government of the “God’s kingdom” variety. They are the humanists who would rise above national boundaries to blur or even erase them. They are humanists who yet pursue the dream of the League of Nations, reinvigorated after WWII as the United Nations. A worldwide blending of peoples and their interests into one common government by man, incorporating whatever is the humanistic thinking holding sway at the time. These ones fully expect those of government (largely themselves) to be granted dignity in light of the noble task they have assumed—it doesn’t matter if praiseworthy results are slow to come—it is the intention that matters. The common working people know it is a crock. They see their own interests being sold out for the loftier “higher” interests of these they would call the “elites.” Their economic interests are tamped down. Their moral values are shoved aside. They are astounded, to take an example, to think that biological differences should not determine male and female, and dismayed to see the view that completely defies their common sense and all of recorded history take the world by storm under the new tidal wave of humanists. They don’t think these guys deserve any dignity at all, so when a photo-shopped Trump is bare-knuckle boxing with the CNN moniker (bastion of world-government think), they love it, and they also love it that the dignified crowd are aghast. ....To highlight the GB’s challenge in encouraging all to stay on the same neutral page, I wrote the following in No Fake News but Plenty of Hogwash: “They just about succeeded in their mission to re-instill complete neutrality – they were alllmmoooost there, when along came the summer Olympics in Rio. On the second day of the Olympics, I mentioned to Tom Pearlsnswine in the field ministry that Hillary had worn a bright pants suit. “Christians are no part of the world!” he rebuked me. On the third day of the Olympics, at the Kingdom Hall, I told him that Trump had tied his shoe. “We must fix our eyes on Jerusalem above!” he said. On the fifth day of the Olympics, I dropped by his home while he was watching the games on TV. He screamed: “Look at that medal count, Tommy!” he shouted. “We’re cleaning up!”
