Noah's Ark Found Again?

  Noah's Ark  

On Sept 5, 1960 a Turkish aerial survey plane was flying 10,000 feet over Mt Ararat and picked up a boat shaped object. Ron Wyatt and his two sons had to find out what it was. He was amazed to find a boat shaped object buried in the side of a mountain. In fact, it was buried so deep that an excavation could not be done by this small group of people. They left a bit disappointed as it would take too much labor to excavate a boat like shape about 150 yards long. Ron said they needed a miracle to lift this boat like shape above ground.

On Nov 5th, 1978 they got their miracle. An Earthquake shook the land and the boat like shape was lifted over 20’ above ground. Ron Wyatt and his team returned and started a detailed investigation of the site.

Mountain Shot

The boat like shape is 515’ long which is the exact measurement found in the bible.
Genesis 6:13-16 So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the Earth is filled with violence because of  them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the Earth. So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out. This is how you are to build it; The ark is to be 300 cubits long and 50 cubits wide and 30 cubits high. Make a roof for it and finish the ark up to 1 cubit from the top. Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle and upper decks.

A cubit in ancient times was the length of a man’s forearm. There are multiple standards for converting a cubit (18-21”) but if you use the conversion of 20.6 inches per cubit you come up with 515’ or 158.46 meters long.

There are 72 ribs on each side of the structure. A sample of the structure was taken and brought to the lab is find out what the material was made of. It was found to be laminated wood. Multiple layers of wood glued together.


On June 20th, 1987 Ron found a fossilized Rivet. It’s was made out of a iron, aluminum and Titanium mixture.  The shaft was 1.5” in diameter with a 3.5” wide head. Scanning the site with a metal detector, hundreds if not thousands of these rivets were found in a systematic pattern.

There is no doubt that this is the remains of a boat on top of a mountain. The measurements and size of the structure match that given in the bible of Noah's ark.. The only way to truly explain how this vessel got there was at one time the water level in this location is where the boat landed. It just happens to be on top of a mountain.

For those who want to believe, this is enough to go on. If you don’t want to believe that’s your choice. If you need more information, please feel free to visit or do a Search for Ron Wyatt and Noah’s Ark.
