Scottish explorer goes missing on Mt. Ararat . New impact crater found on Ararat? Sorry, this is NOT the Ark you're looking for.

Because the north and western region is closed, it is virtually unexplored. Gurzadyan and Aarseth say they also stumbled across the remains of a 5th or 6th century Armenian basilica previously unknown. Another article about Mackenzie, with a nifty Turkish hill fort in the picture. Also, former astronaut James Irwin led several expeditions to Ararat in the 1980s. In 1982, he made it to the top of the mountain, but fell and was injured on the descent. In 1986, he was detained by Turkish police, because of allegations that he engaged in espionage. Like others, he found no tangible evidence of the Ark.

  • I don't want to see the ark. I want to see the boat they sent to Australia to pick up a pair of wombats, platypi, kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, etc. to make sure they survived the global cataclysm, you know, the one that we don't physically have enough water to have ever actually had happen. THEN I'll believe these yahoos. I know a guy who is firmly convinced the bible is true because dinosaur bones were found on top of mountains. The only explanation he has is that "the flood carried them there obviously, because everyone knows dinosaurs didn't climb mountains!" Yes. That is literally what he said. His proof of god lies in the common-knowledge fact that dinosaurs don't climb mountains. I honestly didn't know what to say to the guy so I settled for laughing hilarously and cracking another beer. (Just 'cause he's a nut doesn't mean I won't drink a beer with the guy.)
