Noah's Ark Discovered!
See more pictures here. Could a wooden boat the size of an aircraft carrier float?
Did the ark ground on Mount Ararat?
No. Mount Ararat was not involved in the original flood legend. The ark grounded in an estuary at the mouth of the Euphrates River. The mountains of Ararat got involved in the story because Noah's son Shem traveled on foot to the mountains of Ararat after the barge grounded. Story tellers confused the mountain that Noah's son visited with the hill on which Noah offered a sacrifice. The ark never came close to a mountain. According to Flood-myths.
