An investigative team of experts has reported that they have found Noah’s Ark buried beneath a mountain in Turkey, and claim they have captured underground images using 3D scans that will prove its existence.
Buried beneath a rocky area in the eastern mountains of Turkey, known as the Durupınar site, a mysterious ship-shaped object was discovered a half-century ago.
Investigators now allege they have found evidence of Noah’s Ark on Mount Ararat, also known as Agri Mountain, in Agri, Turkey.
The story of Noah’s Ark, in the Hebrew Bible and in the Old Testament of the Christian Bible, begins in Genesis 6 when the Lord instructs Noah to build an ark 300 cubits in length, which is approximately 450 feet or slightly over 137 meters.
In Genesis 7, the Bible tells the story of Noah and his family loading the ark with the female and male species of every animal, and then setting sail amid 40 days of rainfall flooding on the earth.
Then “the waters prevailed on the earth 150 days” (Genesis 7:24). Next, in Genesis 8, the Bible tells us that “the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat.
“And the waters continued to abate until the tenth month; in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, the tops of the mountains were seen.” (Genesis 8:4-5, bold emphasis added).
Longtime Ark hunter Cem Sertesen and his team of researchers, accompanied by a film crew, have used 3D imaging to capture what they claim “are the actual images of Noah’s ark.”
“They are neither fake nor simulation,” Sertesen says. “They show the entire ship buried underground.”
Images to be revealed in a new documentary
Sertesen and his team have filmed a forthcoming documentary in which they will reveal the images they captured using 3D underground scanning by “sending electric signals underground via cables.”
Andrew Jones, an archaeologist and computer engineer, created the images along with geophysicist John Larson.
Sertesen and his team readily admit that while the images definitely show a ship, they can’t say with certainty whether or not it is Noah’s ark.
“It’s a ship,” Sertesen acknowledged, “but it’s too early to be called Noah’s Ark.”
In 1959, the ship-shaped site was discovered by Captain Ilhan Durupinar, who is an expert cartographer. Nonetheless, the site is more than 50 miles from the nearest body of water.
In 1975, the first scientific research of the ship-shaped formation was performed and concluded that “it is highly likely that the formation underground is a ship.”
