Noah's Ark

The following is absolutely astonishing evidence of Noah's Ark. Some have claimed this is just a natural formation. 
This reminds me of The Walls of Jericho, which i invite you to read as well :) Jericho was debunked in the same fashion at some point but today it's been proven to be the real Jericho that is written about in The Bible with amazing accuracy, 100% solid evidence. 
I will present the following articles (Credit given at the bottom of each) with great joy as i know this will surely increase your faith and knowledge in The Word of God! 
The reason this finding is so important is because it would prove The Existence Of God for the skeptics (I understand it all comes down to Faith, but this evidence could help some people :D) 
How could a man know there would be a world wide disaster coming in the form of water and build an Ark in preparation, with 2 of every animal, unless being Informed and Directed by God?
Additionally we see the number 7 used quite a few times both on Genesis 7 and Genesis 8. 
For more information regarding this number, please see:
The Treasure Of The Rainbow And The Number 7

Genesis 7 
And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.
Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.
Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.
For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.
And Noah did according unto all that the Lord commanded him.
And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.
And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.
Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth,
There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah.
10 And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.
11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.
13 In the self same day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark;
14 They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort.
15 And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh, wherein is the breath of life.
16 And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the Lord shut him in.
17 And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth.
18 And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters.
19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.
20 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.
21 And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:
22 All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.
23 And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.
24 And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.

Praise The Lord JESUS CHRIST!!!

Noah's Ark Has Been Found. Why Are They Keeping Us In The Dark?
December 13, 2013
Written by Dan Eden for ViewZone
I'm often amazed at our lack of knowledge about history. Ordinary people are hungry for this information, yet the organizations responsible to disseminate these facts seem to have an agenda to keep us in the dark. This is especially true when it comes to our ancient human history.
I won't hold you in suspense with this article: The Ark of Noah has been found. It's real. I'll describe the evidence in some detail and end with the historical and religious implications.

How It Was Discovered

In 1959, Turkish army captain Llhan Durupinar discovered an unusual shape while examining aerial photographs of his country. The smooth shape, larger than a football field, stood out from the rough and rocky terrain at an altitude of 6,300 feet near the Turkish border with Iran.


Capt. Durupinar was familiar with the biblical accounts of the Ark and its association with Mount Ararat in Turkey, but he was reluctant to jump to any conclusions. The region was very remote, yet it was inhabited with small villages. No previous reports of an object this odd had been made before. So he forwarded the photographic negative to a famous aerial photography expert named Dr. Brandenburger, at Ohio State University.
Brandenburger was responsible for discovering the Cuban missile bases during the Kennedy era from reconnaissance photos, and after carefully studying the photo, he concluded: "I have no doubt at all, that this object is a ship. In my entire career, I have never seen an object like this on a stereo photo."


In 1960 the picture [above] was published in LIFE magazine under the heading of Noahs Ark? That same year a group of Americans accompanied Capt. Durupinar to the site for a day and a half. They were expecting to find artifacts on the surface or something that would be unquestionably related to a ship of some kind. They did some digging in the area but found nothing conclusive and announced to the anxiously waiting world that it appeared to be a natural formation.
Most of the global media turned away from the find and it became a non-story.
In 1977 Ron Wyatt visited the site. Obtaining official permission, Ron and others conducted more thorough research over a period of several years. They used metal detection surveys, subsurface radar scans, and chemical analysis -- real science -- and their findings were startling. The evidence was undeniable. This was the Ark of Noah.

The Visual Evidence

The first part of the survey was to examine the object and take its measurements. The shape looked like hull of a ship. One end was pointed as you would expect from bow [below: D] and the opposite end was blunt like a stern. The distance from bow to stern was 515 feet, or exactly 300 Egyptian cubits. The average width was 50 cubits. These were the exact measurements mentioned in the Bible.


On the starboard side (right) near the stern there were four vertical bulges protruding from the mud [B], at regular intervals, that were determined to be the "ribs" of the hull [see below]. Opposite to these, on the port side, a single rib [A] protrudes from the mud. You can see its curved shape very clearly. Surrounding it are more ribs, still largely buried in the mud, but visible upon close examination.
Remember that this object, if it is the Ark, is extremely old. The wood has been petrified. Organic matter has been replaced by minerals from the earth. Only the shapes and traces of the original wood remain. Perhaps this is why the expedition in 1960 was disappointed. They anticipated finding and retrieving chucks of wood, long since eroded.


From the position of the object in the middle of an obvious mud flow, it is obvious that the object slid down more than a mile from its original location. Geologists believe it was originally over 1000 feet higher in the mountain and encased in a shell of hardened mud. They think that an earthquake in 1948 cracked the mud shell and revealed the structure. This is confirmed by stories from the surrounding villagers who tell of its "sudden appearance" around that time.


Biblical accounts of the Ark describe it as having as many as six levels. The assumed shape of the Ark seems consistent with the bulge [C] in the middle of the object. In fact, as we will soon learn, radar scans of the structure suggest that this bulge is the collapsed debris of these levels.
Although most people think of the Ark as being rectangular, that only applies to the top decks. The sleek shape of the hull is necessary to enable the huge ship to remain stable in the water and survive tremendous waves.

Ground Penetrating Radar

The human eye needs to see reflected light to recognize an object. To visualize what remains below the earth, scientists use microwaves which can penetrate the ground and bounce back when they hit something solid. This technique is commonly used to locate oil and other minerals. Called Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), the apparatus us made from an antenna that transmits, then listens to receive the "echo" and prints the result on a piece of paper. The delay and strength of this echo tell the geologists how solid and at what depth the objects are under the earth.


The team of geologists didn't scan the entire object. Instead, they marked out lines that crossed the object with yellow tape. Then they dragged the antenna (about the size of a lawnmower) over the lines and watched the output on the paper recorder. When they got a strong "hit" -- meaning there was something solid underneath -- they would record the position on the tape [above]. Later, when they made a map of the object, the tape and the location of the "hits" they realized that there was indeed a structure underneath the mud.
"This data does not represent natural geology. These are man made structures. These reflections are appearing too periodic... too periodic to be random in that type of natural pace." - Ron Wyatt of SIR Imaging team

The radar cans revealed this structure [above] under the mud. The symmetry and logical placement of these objects shows that this is unmistakably a man made structure, most likely the Ark of Noah.

Artifacts Retrieved From The Ark

Using the GPR, Ron Wyatt discovered an open cavity on the starboard side. He used an improvised drill to make core sample inside this cavity and retrieved several very interesting objects. Below you can see the artifacts which were sent for laboratory analysis. On the left is the bore hole [see below], followed by what turned out to be petrified animal dung, then a petrified antler and lastly a piece of cat hair.


Perhaps the most significant find from the Ark itself is a piece of petrified wood. When this was first found it appeared to be a large beam. But upon closer examination it is actually three pieces of plank that have been laminated together with some kind of organic glue! This is the same technology used in modern plywood. Lamination makes the total strength of the wood much greater than the combined strength of the pieces. This suggests a knowledge of construction far beyond anything we knew existed in the ancient world.

Tests by Galbraith Labs in Knoxville, Tennessee, showed the sample to contain over 0.7% organic carbon, consistent with fossilized wood. The specimen was once living matter. Photo: 

Examination reveals the glue oozed from the layers. The outside of the wood appears to have been coated with bitumen.
Even more surprising were laboratory analyses which not only revealed that the petrified wood contained carbon (proving it was once wood) but there were iron nails [above right] embedded in the wood!
We like to imagine that humanity evolved in a neat sequence of eras, each named after the technology that was discovered. We have the Stone Age (where man developed arrows and stone tools), the Bronze Age (where metals were combined and heated to make tools and household items) and lastly the Iron Age (where iron and steel objects were made by heating iron ore and adding other material -- like charcoal -- to strengthen it). The Iron Age is usually placed at 1200-1000 BC, yet we have iron nails being used in this extremely old construction

But Wait... There's More!

The most surprising find was discovered with sensitive metal detectors. The team located several strong "hits" that, when dug up, revealed large disc shaped rivets. From simple observation of the metal it was possible to see where the rivet had been hammered after being inserted through a hole [below].


If rivets being used in ancient construction doesn't impress you, this surely will.
An analysis of the metal used to make the rivets revealed that they were a combination of iron (8.38%), aluminum (8.35%) and titanium (1.59%). Remember these trace metals have survived petrification and so do not indicate the exact content in the original material. (see Report from Galbraith Labs)
We know the aluminum was incorporated in the metallic mixture because it does not exist in metallic form in nature. This implies an extremely advanced knowledge of metallurgy and engineering. Characteristics of an iron-aluminum alloy have been investigated in The Russian Chemical Bulletin (2005) and reveal that this alloy forms a thin film of aluminum oxide which protects the material from rust and corrosion. The addition of titanium would provide added strength. This seems to have worked. The rivets have survived from antiquity!

The Surrounding Areas

Several miles from the location of the Ark, huge stones were discovered, some standing upright while others lying on the ground. These stones, weighing many tons, have holes carved in them. Scientists have determined that they were anchors and the holes would have been their attachment to a ship with hemp rope.


Often these stones will have crosses carved in them, from centuries ago when pilgrims made the journey to visit the Ark. Yes, the Ark was well known in the Middle Ages and even before. And its location was recorded in many historical documents.
"And the Ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat. 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." - Genesis 8:4-5
The Gilgamesh Epic (650 BC) gives Mt. Nisir as the landing place of the Ark. The local name for the town where the Ark was found is Nasar.
The annals of Ashurnasurpal II of Assyria (833-859 BC) places it south of the Zab river (correct).
Theophilus of Antioch (115-185 AD) said the Ark could be seen in his day in the Arabian mountains. Later Church Fathers also mention the Ark as late as the mid 7th century.
In the 13th century, Willam, a traveler, stated for the first time that Mt. Masis was the Ark location (present-day Mt. Ararat).
Ptolemy's Geographia (1548) mentions the mountains of Armenia as the place of landing. So does the traveler Nicolas de Nicolay (1558).
Pilgrims to the site would gather bits and pieces of the petrified wood which would be used as charms to ward off evil. When they encountered the anchors, they had no doubt about their association with the Ark. They often carved one big cross to represent Noah and smaller crosses representing his family.


The huge anchors would have been suspended from the keel of the ship. This was a common practice among ancient mariners to stabilize a heavy ship and ensure that the bow is always facing the on-coming waves. A "top heavy" ship, such as the Ark, could easily be capsized by a wave approaching from the side. This is yet further proof that Noah's Ark was a reality and that it has indeed been found in Turkey.

Friends, please prayerfully consider the evidence you will see on Noah's Ark.  It may not be important or necessary for you to learn of this discovery, but there are millions of people who need confirmation of biblical artifacts in order to strengthen their faith in God and the Bible.  Satan is strongly attacking this and other discoveries in order to deceive men of God's truth.  All the false stories about finding Noah's ark were created by Satan to "muddy the water," and cause disbelief in the genuine.

The Real Noah's Ark!
Top Points to Consider
  1. It is in the shape of a boat, with a pointed bow and rounded stern.
  2. Exact length as noted in biblical description, 515 feet or 300 Egyptian cubits.  (Egyptian not Hebrew cubit would have been known to Moses who studied in Egypt then wrote Genesis.)
  3. It rests on a mountain in Eastern Turkey, matching the biblical account, "The ark rested . . . upon the mountains of Ararat" Genesis 8:4.  (Ararat being the name of the ancient country Urartu which covered this region.)
  4. Contains petrified wood, as proven by lab analysis.
  5. Contains high-tech metal alloy fittings, as proven by separate lab analyses paid for by Ron Wyatt, then performed later by Kevin Fisher of this web site.  Aluminum metal and titanium metal was found in the fittings which are MAN-MADE metals!
  6. Vertical rib timbers on its sides, comprising the skeletal superstructure of a boat.  Regular patterns of horizontal and vertical deck support beams are also seen on the deck of the ark.
  7. Occupied ancient village at the ark site at 6,500 ft. elevation matching Flavius Josephus' statement "Its remains are shown there by the inhabitants to this day." 
  8. Dr. Bill Shea, archaeologist found an ancient pottery sherd within 20 yards of the ark which has a carving on it that depicts a bird, a fish, and a man with a hammer wearing a headdress that has the name "Noah" on it.  In ancient times these items were created by the locals in the village to sell to visitors of the ark.  The ark was a tourist attraction in ancient times and today.
  9. Recognized by Turkish Government as Noah's Ark National Park and a National Treasure.  Official notice of its discovery appeared in the largest Turkish newspaper in 1987.
  10. Visitors' center built by the government to accommodate tourists further confirms the importance of the site.
  11. Huge anchor stones were found near the ark and in the village Kazan, 15 miles away, which hung off the rear of the ark to steady its ride.
  12. The ark rests upon Cesnakidag (or Cudi Dagi) Mountain, which is  translated as "Doomsday" Mountain.
  13. Dr. Salih Bayraktutan of Ataturk University stated, "It is a man made structure, and for sure it's Noah's Ark"  Common Sense.  This same article also states "The site is immediately below the mountain of Al Judi, named in the Qur'an as the resting place of the Ark."  Houd Sura 11:44
  14. Radar scans show a regular pattern of timbers inside the ark formation, revealing keels, keelsons, gunnels, bulkheads, animal chambers, ramp system, door in right front, two large barrels in the front 14' x 24', and an open center area for air flow to all three levels. 
The Biblical Location

There is only one verse in the Bible which gives us a hint of where we the ark came to rest, "the ark rested...upon the mountains ofArarat." Genesis 8:4.  Where is Ararat?  The name Ararat is a large area or ancient country covering eastern Turkey, western Iran and western Russia, as shown in yellow below. 

"The name Ararat, as it appears in the Bible, is the Hebrew equivalent of ...Urartu, ancient country of southwest Asia...mentioned in Assyrian sources from the early 13th century BC"  Encyclopaedia Britanica 15th ed.  Some have mistakenly assumed the Bible meant the ark came to rest on Mount Ararat (Agri Dagh), but that is not the case.  Mount Ararat is 17,000 feet tall, and is a post-Flood volcanic mountain that gained its height after the Flood, therefore there is no reason to assume it is a more likely candidate for the resting place of the ark, instead it is a less likely candidate.  The ark came to rest in the mountains of the ancient country of Urartu, not on Mt. Ararat.

The Ancient Historical Record  

Flavius Josephus, c. 90 AD, the famous Jewish historian stated, "Its remains are shown there by the inhabitants to this day."  He quotes Berosus the Chaldean, c. 290 BC, who indicated tourists would take home pieces of the ark for making good-luck charms, "It is said there is still some part of this ship in Armenia, at the mountain of the Cordyaeans; and that some people carry off pieces of the bitumen, which they take away, and use chiefly as amulets for the averting of mischiefs."  These comments tend to indicate its location would not be in an inaccessible area.  At some point, the ark was covered by a mud and lava flow which caused future generations to lose its location.

Life Magazine 1960

  The 1960 expedition to the ark found a formation whose top sides were even with ground level as seen in the photos above.  The site researched by Ron Wyatt is 18.2 miles south of Mount Ararat at the elevation of 6,524 ft., in the "mountains of Ararat."    A Turkish captain, Llhan Durupinar, was reviewing NATO Geodetic Survey photographs of the area in 1959, and noticed a boat shaped formation.  Others in the U.S. then analyzed the  photograph including Dr. Arthur J. Brandenburger, world famous expert in photogrammetry, who said "I have no doubt at all that this object is a ship.  In my entire career I have never seen an object like this on a stereo photo.  Even the approximate length of the object fits"  The Ark File, p118.  An expedition sponsored by a party from the U.S. included among others, Rene Noorbergen, later author of The Ark File; and George Vandeman, evangelist, and Dr. Brandenburger.  They made a visual inspection of the site and conducted no scientific studies, only some digging and dynamiting of the ark and and mistakenly concluded this site was just an "odd geological formation."  The expedition was expecting to find on the surface of the ark "petrified beams" The Ark File, p126, by digging in a few places.   An article then appeared in the September 5th, 1960, Life magazine, shown above, revealing a very impressive aerial photo of an extremely large boat-shaped object, plus two photos taken by the expedition.  Seventeen years later in 1977, Mr. Wyatt made his first of 24 trips to the ark, and he was impressed that this really was the remains of Noah's Ark!  In the research he performed over the next 15 years, Mr. Wyatt successfully performed metal detection tests and subsurface  radar scans of the site, and he proved this site really IS the mud-and-lava covered remains of Noah's Ark! 

Above:  Ron Wyatt in 1977 wanted to visit the area to find the ark, but none of the 1960 group could tell him where it was located, just some where near Mt. Ararat.  Ron had three days in the area, so he and his two sons prayed that the Lord would help them.  They hired a taxi and started driving around, then the taxi stalled.  They were surprised, and quickly piled up stones to mark the spot.  The car then started and they drove off.  This happened three times.  The next day Ron went back to the piles of stones and walked out from them.  He found the ark, the anchor stones that you will see, and the remains of Noah's house.  God had performed miracles to partner with Ron in revealing this amazing discovery.

Government Confirmation:
Visitors' Center Opened

The Turkish government has double-verified Mr. Wyatt's tests, and they have given him credit for the discovery.  The announcement appeared in Turkey's largest newspaper on June 21, 1987.  The area was first designated a National Park, and then it was upgraded to the status of a National Treasure.  Thegovernment has built a visitors' center overlooking the site and issued official tourist brochures so people of all races can come and see the ark!

The Announcement of the Discovery

Translation of newspaper article announcing the discovery of Noah's Ark:

"THE NOAH'S ARK OPENED TO TOURISM.  The surrounding area of a ship-like soil pile nearby the village of Uzengili within the township of Dogubeyazit as a national park.  Dogubeyazit - The American Academics confirmed the soil pile nearby the village of Uzengili in the township of Dogubeyazit is Noah's Ark.  The surrounding area is declared to be a national park and it is opened to tourism.  15 Km away from Dogubeyazit at the village of Uzengili, Ronal Eldon Wyatt and his colleagues, an American research group, made researches after their Turkish colleagues completed their investigations.  Upon analyzing the soil structure and finding specific iron pieces and particles, the American researchers concluded that Noah's Ark is located at Uzengili village.  With a ceremony attended by the Governor of Agri Province, Subgovernor of Dogubeyazit township, the Mayor Usha, Mr. Osman Baydar and the local and foreign scientists and researchers and a group of citizens, the Noah's Ark is opened to touristic visits.  The Governor Serket Ekinci said, "In recent years, Turkey has become one of the countries to be visited in worldwide tourism.  It is assured that the Noah's Ark, mentioned in Quran and the Bible, is located here.  I am honored to pen this area having the Noah's Ark which attracts attentions of millions in the world.  I owe our thanks to those national and foreign scientists and researchers contributed to the researches so as to locate Noah's Ark.  At the social facilities to be built, we will accommodate local and foreign tourists and have our country make hard currency."  translation courtesy Val Smith

Government sign directs your way to the ark

The Length Matches the Biblical Record!

Noah's Ark at 515 feet compared to the U.S.S. Kitty Hawk aircraft carrier.    Graphics Mark Johnson

The length of the ruins of the ark is 515 ft., which is exactly 300 Egyptian cubits (20.6 inches)!  Moses was schooled in Egypt and was not familiar with the Hebrew cubit which was not even in existence when Moses wrote Genesis. So the Egyptian cubit was used by Moses when describing the measurements of the ark.

The brown material above represents the outline and shape of the ark today.  The Bible said there were three levels, and based upon the present depth of the ark, it may have originally appeared as shown above. (diagram courtesy

Ark Excavated by God

Pre-earthquake photo

The photo above shows the ark deeply embedded in the surrounding terrain.  In 1978, when Mr. Wyatt was returning to Nashville, he prayed that God would send an earthquake to "excavate" the site.  When arriving in Nashville the headlines read, "Earthquake in Eastern Turkey."  The earth dropped from around the sides of the ark, defining the formation more clearly and making it more accessible for research.

Above:  We can see how the earth has dropped around the sides of the ark.   photo Kevin Fisher

Metal Used in the Ark!

 The ark contains a large amount of metal fittings which were used to secure the large timbers together.  These two photos below are from our October 2000, trip to the site.  Notice how there was once two large rivet fasteners, but now only one is left.  A large metal plate was positioned behind the rivets.  I received a positive metal reading when passing the metal detector over the rivets.  We should not be surprised to find metal alloys used in the ark, because Genesis 4:22 states, "Tubal-Cain, an instructor of every craftsman in bronze and iron."     photos Kevin Fisher

(Top) Ron Wyatt found a beautiful specimen of one of the metal rivets used on the ark.  It was tested and found to contain high-tech metal alloys, such as titanium, magnesium, and aluminum, etc. Critics have said Ron did not find this fine specimen on the ark but just manufactured it.  Well, as you will see below, we found the same objects and had them tested.  They too proved to have the same metals, in the same percentages!  (Below) Two rough rivets in lower portion of photo.   photo Kevin Fisher

Our Own Metal Samples Tested
Lab Report Shows
Our Rivet Contains Man-Made Metals!

Below is what is shown above.  It appears to be part of a large washer that would have been slipped over a shaft and then secured on the shaft by flaring out the end of the shaft.   We have drawn circles on the photo to demonstrate the circular effect in the specimen.  The surrounding material on the side of the ark around this object had a greenish color.  Assuming a circular shape, this sample would be the same size as the rivet found by Mr. Wyatt.  (The photo at right is of the rivet as we found it on the ark)


Galbraith Laboratories of Knoxville Tennessee has tested the specimen for three metals I requested.  I asked them to test for aluminum metal, iron metal, and titanium metal.  It costs $60 to test for each metal requested.  The results show 8.35 % iron metal, 8.35% aluminum metal, and 1.59% titanium metal.  ALUMINUM AND TITANIUM METALS ARE NOT FOUND IN NATURE!!!  THIS OBJECT IS MAN-MADE, USING ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY!!  These results are similar to those produced in the analysis of the rivet found by Mr. Wyatt.  Since the specimen is fossilized, it is assumed a large portion of it is now silica replacement, reducing the percentage of metal that was originally in it when it was made.  These rivets are found in several locations on the outside of the Ark, and are probably buried inside the Ark by the hundreds or thousands.  In comparison to others, this specimen is in poor condition.

The second item I had tested by the lab reveals that is is also man-made.  It was found on the side of the ark.  It produced positive metal readings with my metal detector when I was at the site.  Later in Istanbul, I tested it with a magnet which produced an attraction to it.  It appears to have been flared out (left photo) by pounding the center when it was hot. The left hand photo is facing us the way it appeared on the starboard side of the Ark.  Notice the side view (right view) which shows the tapering effect.  Test results from Galbraith Labs, completed in June 2001,  reveal it has man-made aluminum metal in it!  It contains 8.08 percent aluminum metal, 8.24 percent iron metal, 1.34 percent titanium metal, and 3.82 percent magnesium metal. 

This may be the end of a metal rod.  Turkish officials reported removing four foot long metal rods from the site.

Metal Bracket

In May, 1985, Dr. John Baumgardner of Los Alomas Labs, was inspecting the ark with a metal detector when he became startled and said, "Undecomposed Iron!"  A rectangular beam was protruding from the side of the ark, with iron flakes.  He found a beautiful right angled wrought iron bracket which had been stretched and hammered, showing preferential gradiance.  John tested it at Los Alomas Labs and it was found to be 91.84% iron FE203.


Below is a suspected piece of metal ballast that may have been thrown into the bottom of the ark when the craftsmen were through forming metal brackets and had metal waste left over.  Notice the concave features on almost every side, where other pieces of ballast were pressed against it when it was still hot.  I found this next to the ark.  (Two photos of same item.)

Metal Wedge?

This appears to be some manganese ballast which was poured into the hull in a liquid state,
then hardened and took the curvature of the hull (right photo).  It has a coating on the convex side, while the flat side appears to be metal.  Found a few feet away from the ark.

Ballast Found by Wyatt

This is an example of the metal ballast that has been found in the hull of the ark.  It is made up of manganese primarily, which is a by-product of forming magnesium that was used in the metal rivets.  Found by Ron Wyatt.

Square Object with "X" Impression

The western side of the ark had this square object that had the appearance of metal on its top and three sides..  It also contained an impression in it, much like it had been struck while it was hot.  It was at a higher level where I could not measure it.  It may have been 8 inches in diameter.  photo Kevin Fisher

In London, Texas a metal hammer was found in rock.  This would be a pre-Flood, metal object:

Vertical Rib Timbers on the Sides

The port or eastern side of the ark, near the front, was scraped off by Ron in an effort to view the timbers without loose, crumbling material in the way.  This process revealed the lighter color rib timbers in a systematic, vertical pattern. You can see a darker, curved pattern across the top, which represents the remnants of a large keelson. (photo courtesy

boasts these horizontal deck support posts extending above the matrix
 material in the center and right portions of this photo.

Convex Symmetrical Deck

Above:  The symmetrical shape of the ark can been seen from the rear, with a center mound
that is the deck area that has collapsed, and the port and starboards side to the left and right.
A boy can be seen at the rear.

The Petrified Wood

This example of the petrified wood shows distinct right angles and the wood grain of the wood.  Specimen found by Ron Wyatt.

A close-up photo of an 18 inch deck plank unearthed before Turkish officials by Ron Wyatt and features three distinct layers of wood with glue protruding from the end.  It was tested and proved to be petrified wood.  It is 18 inches in length and has a few visible nails.  It is made of three layers of wood with dark pitch on top.  At the bottom right you can see dark spots which may be consistent with Pecky Cypress wood, so this may be the gopher wood described in the biblical account.  This deck timber was analyzed at Galbraith Labs in Knoxville, Tennessee, and was found to have a total carbon content of 0.7100%.  From this figure you would deduct the inorganic carbon of 0.0081%, leaving 0.7019% organic carbon, which is a much higher level of organic carbon than inorganic, so this indicates this was once living matter.     photo Kevin Fisher

Original Location

The ark originally came to rest higher on the mountain after the Flood. At some point in the first two thousand years of resting in the mountains of Ararat, a volcano erupted above the ark and moved the ark further down the mountain and then impaled it on a rock outcropping where it rests today.
The ark rests on Cesnakidag Mountain, which is interpreted as "Doomsday" Mountain.  The Flood would be considered a real "doomsday" since it destroyed the world.  The mountain is made of sedimentary cretaceous water laid rock, which means it was formed by the Flood waters and is not a post Flood formation.

Above:  This is the alcove, in the center and rear,  where the ark came to rest originally,
higher on the mountain.  In the distance straight ahead is the Iranian guard tower.  To the left on
 the ridge is the Turkish guard tower.  If you walk up here there is a good chance you will be
arrested by the Turks, as has already happened.

Artifacts found inside the Ark
Core Drill by Ron Wyatt

A look inside Noah's Ark!

This is a look through the six inch diameter core drill Ron Wyatt performed years ago.  It leads to a chamber which contained petrified animal dung coprolite (below), cat hair, the base of an antler (below), human hair, and man-made fiber that is similar to fiber optic.  Ron closed it up to prevent contamination inside.   photos Kevin Fisher


Various Pictures

Crumbling Apart This photo was taken of the side of the ark.  You will find petrified wood and mud matrix material.

(Top 1) Perhaps a petrified piece of fruit, or some other object, 3 1/2" diameter, found in the bow of the deck.  (Top 2) Black seeds? at top of fruit.  photos Kevin Fisher

The Village of Eight & the Anchor Stones 
Another location where the taxi stalled

Above:  Our drawing of one way the anchor stones would operate.

What are anchor stones? They hung from ships to act as additional ballast,
or to help point the bow in a certain direction.
Kevin Fisher stands next to a typical anchor stone found in the Mediterranean area,
much smaller than those which were used on Noah's Ark.

Above:  Large anchor stone with Mt. Ararat in distance, and Dr. Robert Michelson of Georgia Tech
 inspecting the stone.  The stones were cut off in this area, then the ark floated more freely
to its final landing place about 12 miles away. Dr. Michelson gives a three hour
presentation on the Noah's ark site.

Above:  Broken stone with eight crosses, in the Village of Eight, named for the eight
survivors of the Flood.  The largest cross represents Noah, to the left is a cross for Mrs. Noah,
 then three smaller crosses for the sons of Noah, then the three smallest for the wives of the sons.  photo Kevin Fisher

Above:  The top was broken off by vandals, to the right, but was laying nearby.
Crosses are carved on this one also.

Noah's home
Another location where the taxi stalled

Above:  Ron Wyatt with a tour group, standing at Noah's home which overlooks the village
with the anchor stones.

Above:  Photo by Ron Wyatt in 1977 of Mrs. Noah's tombstone in the front yard of this home.
Ron noticed faint inscriptions on the stone.

Above:  Artist's conception of drawing on tombstone, showing Mrs. Noah's head turned downward
and her eyes closed, meaning she had died.  After Ron showed this to someone, they came back later
and dug up Mrs. Noah's grave, taking her 18 ft. sarcophagus, bones, and jewelry which sold for millions
of dollars on the black market.  The locals heard about this and systematically destroyed the house, looking for gold. 

Above:  Noah's home today, with its walls torn down by the locals after they heard that gold was found here.

Above:  Long grave of Mrs. Noah in the front yard of the home.

Above:  Ross Patterson found this ancient, ribbed nail next to my shoe while we were standing in Mrs. Noah's empty grave.
Her sarcophagus was stone.  This tapered, ribbed nail was designed to secure the lid, and grab tighter and tighter
 as is was driven into pre-drilled holes.  Testing showed it to be iron metal.

What's Next?

An excavation permit to dig into the ark has never been issued by the Turkish government, preventing thorough documentation of the site.  Future plans to excavate the ark mandate a building must first be constructed over the entire 515 ft. long structure, with the entire project estimated to cost $3-4 million.  The money has yet to be raised.  Partial documentation of this site has periodically appeared on The 700 Club, 20/20, The Discovery Channel, The Learning Channel, CNN, Encounters, and various local Christian TV stations, but Ron Wyatt never had his own documentary shown on national television.

  1. Just awesome! Such a great web site. May YHWH, King over ALL who accept Him and his Son, Yeshua, bless you Miguel, and all people that test everything and put it against Biblical principles.

    1. Thanks, i have just realized i never commented back to you, sorry about that! :) I'm glad you like this website, i would like to share another one i've done which is filled with Biblical Teachings beautifully illustrated for you! :D

      May The Lord Jesus Christ Bless you bro! :D

  3. Ron Wyatt's work, not only on the great boat of Noah, but on other Biblical events can only be attested to his being guided by a Higher Power. God and his angels (as Ron has stated) did guide is many efforts to being.
    Another book of great interest, similar to Ron Wyatt's work, is a German Priest, Johannes Greber, who left the Catholic church to become a layman preacher once the angels of Heaven revealed the terrible inaccuracies that organization leads people to.
    Greber's book (1932) is titled, "Communication With the Spirit World of God, It's Laws and Purpose". Amazon has copies, or found at free online.,

    1. Thanks for sharing, brother. Could you tell me what the book is about? I read some reviews on it, and i keep seeing the word, "Spiritism" which makes me want to be a little careful.
      I remember the Words Of The Bible That Say we should be careful, for there will be many false teachers who won't spare the flock.

      You've shared with me and I would also like to share another work i've done, with you, which i'm sure you'll like :D

      Remember God Loves you Infinitely! :D May The Lord Jesus Christ Bless you!

  4. do you think these are "anchor stones"?(click the link down).
    I believe that this was the Noahs Ark, but I doubt the Anchor stones,there is no mention in the Bible that they were used.

  5. Your such a sucker. Ron Wyatt was a fraud. He never let real experts examine any of his find in particular the so called blood. Nobody has seen the ark of the covenant except him. And the Duripinar sight is also a fake. And his tale of getting permits is bogus because they dont issue them to ever tom dick and harry who wants to play Indian Jones, and an Anesthesiologist is not qualified but on contrary, people like him destroy small items that that they cant recognize because they have no education in the different strata that encompassed a sight.
