>Randall Price, Professor of Judaic Studies at Liberty University, believes the place where Noah’s Ark rested on Mt. Ararat has been found.
Price and retired Continental Airlines Pilot Richard Bright received information last fall that may reveal the place where the Ark in located.
According to a news report, a Kurdish shepherd has said “that he had seen the ark, and even climbed on top of it, when he was a boy.”
Price and Bright, who are leading an archeological team to search for Noah’s Ark, believe “that the ark is preserved in several pieces beneath a glacier on the mountain, and every so often the glacier recedes, exposing part of the vessel.”
This spring the shepherd agreed to lead the team to the site where he said he had seen the Ark.
Over the years I have read about people who have been inside the Ark and even brought back a piece of the wood to prove their story. By now, when Price and Bright get there, they will find nothing; the Ark has been taken away, piece by piece.
Seriously, I think this new effort to find the Ark will not succeed. If people need to find the Ark in order to believe that the Bible is true, then, I suggest that their faith may not be as strong as they think.
