Bible text: New King James Version CLICK FOR NEXT SLIDE Is NOAH ’ s Ark Is NOAH’s Ark IF Noah’s Ark were really discovered, what do YOU think would happen? They ’ d cover it up! Well, it seems it has been … OR COVERED UP!? DIS … COVERED? COVERED UP!

2 NOAH ’ s ARK Is A MYTH! NOAH’s ARK Is A MYTH! WickedPedia calls it.. A HISTORY “ FULL OF HOLES ” ! They- the media – say..

3 The “ FLOOD MYTH ” !

4 But no one can deny … THREE ANOMALIES The Amazing “ SHIP SHAPE ” No. 1

5 1 And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters asswaged; 2 The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained; 3 And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated. 4 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat. 5 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. “ And the Ark rested on the MountainS of Ararat. ” Genesis 8 A point of added interestis that in the Sura Hood of the Koran, it says of the Flood that "the affair was finished and the ark rested onal-Jud A point of added interest is that in the Sura Hood of the Koran, it says of the Flood that "the affair was finished and the ark rested on al-Judi." The Bible in Genesis 6 says:

6 In Eastern Turkey … On the MountainS of Ararat Ararat 1 Ararat 2 On ‘ Cudi Dag ’ or ‘ Judi Da(g) ’ IS A STRANGE FORM! Ararat 1 Ararat 2 On the Mountain ‘ Judi Da ’

7 6,200 feet above sea level near the border with Iran 6,200 feet above sea level near the border with Iran On Mt. ‘ Judi Dag ’ Ararat 1 Ararat 2 Iran Turkey

8 Mt. ‘ Judi Dag ’ Ararat 1 Ararat 2 17 miles South of Mt. Ararat. Reshit Sarihan, a Turkish farmer, in May 1948, first discovered a strange SHIP-SHAPE!

9 (Original photo) A strange ship-shape, with sharp bow & rounded stern, looking like a BOAT?! We are building our case! But there is more! At the same place are also found; Related archaeological artifacts, an ancient town, related place-names, all documented & mentioned in hundreds of historical records, on clay tablets, in ancient legends, and in local lore. stern bow

10 The photo was published in 1960 in ‘ Life ’ Magazine, wondering if these were remains of “ Noah ’ s Ark? ” !

11 … to research the boat-like anomaly!

12 They found the “ ship ” resting on/in a mud flow, but the “ ship walls ” were still covered in mud!

13 Geologists say, long ago, the “ ship ” slid from its original position, 2 km down the slope, in an ’ earthflow ’ or land slide, its sides covered by mud!

14 The landslide was most likely caused by earthquake and/or heavy rain!)

15 Then in 1987, 3 earthquakes shook off earth-flow dirt, and exposed the ‘ hull ’ & sides of the ship! Here we can see the bow of the ‘ hull ’ of the dirt pile The hull ’ s bottom is 538 feet (164 M.) in length, but the Ark's length in the Bible is 12 feet (3.6 M.) longer! A bow & stern would make it 550 feet (167 M.) EXACTLY as long as God in the Bible told Noah to make it. bow stern bow stern

16 What it looks like in ‘ Google Earth ’ now Is this “ship-shape” on land…Noah’s ark?

17 Even by some Christians, who insist that the Ark is frozen in permanent ice high on top of (volcano) Ararat No. 1. Ararat 1 Ararat 2

18 This “ DISCOVERY of the CENTURY! ”, is largely IGNORED by global mainstream media!

19 Does Mr. Avci testify to the contrary? A Turkish geologist Murat Avci ’ s denies it is a ship But then says that it was … “ An object floating on the earth-flow “ and it … “ Behaved very much like a ship within the earthflow. “ The “ backbone ” of the “ ship ” was broken in several places. ” “ Backbone? Ship? ”

20 The first position of the “ ship-shape ”, before it slid down, is still visible on aerial photos from its original imprint in the earth, 2 KM up the mountain. Now if that ’ s ALL, it would be a little remarkable. But interestingly enough, there is more related evidence, facts & historical information, that make it A Far Weightier Discovery!

21 1976, American discoverer Ron Wyatt researched the “ ship ” structure with magnetic radar scans

22 Turkish Government Seems Convinced!

23 An ancient town & ‘ necropolis ’ The 2nd Anomaly!

24 The “ Ark ’ s ” First Landing Place!

25 The imprint 2 KM up the Mountain!

26 So did the ark land 2 KM up Mt. Judi? An artist ’ s impression

27 On aerial photos, archaeologist David Deal discovered that the original first position of the “ ship ” was located in the midst of the remains of … an ancient town! “ Naxuan ” (Noah ’ s City!) was the first city built after the Flood! Naxuan was discussed by ancient writers such as Berossus, Armenian Moses of Chronensis, Ptolemy the geographer, & Roman Jew Flavius Josephus, and others.

28 This is the symbol of MODERN Naxuan! (Nakchivan!) Picture of a Flood! An ark on a mountain

29 Naxuan Khanate of Nakhichevan 1747 – 1828

30 'Be Still and Know that I AM GOD ‘ Psalm 46:19 The Ark mold impression in the first city, is found in the middle of remains of houses, and many graves and cemeteries! We ’ ll zoom in on this square of the town now … Is Naxuan a necropolis “ city for the dead ?"

31 We ’ ll now zoom in on this housing square now …

32 Photo (Prof. R. Michelson Georgia Tech) on 1st Naxuan expedition shows Dr.M.S. Bayraktutan, professor of geology at Atat ü rk University Erzurum, standing in the foundation of an ancient house in Naxuan city center, near the Ark landing site. What is a “ ship-shape ” doing in the middle of an ancient town that became a place of pilgrimage, as well as a favorite necropolis for so many people?

33 Many cities are famous for something!

34 Was Naxuan famous for its ARK??

35 At first it was a normal town, but then the many many graves took over the city! Graves and cemeteries found all over the place, grew so abundant, they outnumber the original houses. Naxuan became like a favorite burial resort or “ necropolis ” of ancient times, and a place of pilgrimage or worship similar to Lourdes.

36 Naxuan obviously became a famous pilgrimage resort where people wanted to be buried! Why? IF this was Noah ’ s landing-place, it makes sense that his first descendents preferred to be buried close to their patriarch & his Ark, feeling that place was holy! And thus this ancient city became the first center of civilization and necropolis for the early ancient world.

37 Until the BOAT left town in an earthquake? Naxuan ghost town!

38 Ancient writers such as the Chaldean historian Berossus described the Ark of Noah being existent in their time with people regularly making pilgrimages to the site to scrape amulets from its sides. Clearly these pilgrims were visiting something easily accessible to the common man. Later, Nicholas of Damascus (Herod ’ s historian) and the Roman historian Josephus recounted these stories. Moses of Chronensis described the first post-flood habitations: Naxuan

39 Artifacts found in Naxuan

40 OK An old Town! But was it a Boat?

41 The 3rd Anomaly Anchor Stones, Drogue Stones, or Flail Weights.

42 Very Near Naxuan in the Ararat Mountains … 2 miles & 14 miles away, are 2 locations where 2 plus 12 very heavy anchor- or so-called “ drogue-stones ” are found! Thus we can also figure the Ark ’ s course!

43 With rounded rope-holes at the top

44 These kind of stones aren ’ t found anywhere else except near the Mediterranean Sea, which proves they are of maritime nature! WEIGHTS? SHIP ANCHORS? But these anchors are unique! Because they ’ re found on LAND and 6,200 ft./2.100 M. above SEA level!

45 Some scientists believe they served as flail-weights to keep a ship steady in violent waters, and in order to always face the waves, so the ark couldn ’ t capsize! If not Anchor Stones, what are they?

46 A great stone (basalt) flail-anchor weighing several tons, one of many on the ark, was found 14 miles west of the ark landing site. This indicates the course line taken by the ark, and the place above which the ark rested, at anchor, in the mountains of Urartu from the 17th day of the seventh month until sometime after the 10th day of the tenth month as described in Genesis. 14 miles from Naxuan. At which point in time the tops of the mountains became visible. There are approximately twelve such anchors found around this village of Kazan ( old Arzap on 1941 Turkish army maps ). Arzap means "cling to the earth" in Turkish, and in Hebrew the same thought is rendered "eretz-zab."

47 Did the ark "cling to the earth" here, resting for several months at anchor? Was the ark then cast adrift again after that? Did it slowly head toward the 14 mile distant mountain-top island Masher, where, after shedding 2 more anchors, the ark finally came to an earth-landing at Naxuan? It sounds more than plausible! Logical! The ark-landing mountain ‘ Masher Dag ’ (or ‘ Judi Dag ’, ‘ Mountain of Kurds ’ ) would have just been inside the horizon, easily seen from the anchored ark. As stated in the BIBLE BOOK OF GENESIS And how else could the Ark have come to rest, before the mountains were seen, other than through anchors? before the mountains were seen

48 How else could the Ark come to rest on the mountain of Ararat (Urartu) in the 7th month and the tops of the mountains not be visible for another 3 months! ANCHORS!!!

49 LET ’ S RECAPITULATE & SUM IT UP AGAIN! A BOAT landed 2500 M./7,400 ft. above sea level on a mountain leaving its original touchdown imprint surrounded by a mysterious pilgrimage town with many graves called “ Noah ’ s city ” and remains of a ship shape 2 KM down the mountain PLUS 14 huge anchors or flail weights! Many Photos & Illustrations Courtesy Dr. David A. Deal, Ron Wyatt, David Fasold & other brave pioneers!

50 If this is not Noah ’ s Ark ’ s and these are not its anchors? What are they? What the Hell are they, Wikipedia?!

51 MORE ANOMALIES Are there any more ark- or Noah-related archaeological facts or records at this locality? Actual related ancient geographic place- names Lets find out!

52 If Noah is a legend, why do Armenians have his tomb in a shrine there around Mt. Ararat? Why do oldest place names of that area preserve antique meanings that translate as 'Noah's Village', 'First Vineyard', 'House of Shem' (Noah's son), 'First Market Town' and 'Place of First Descent' and so on. Most of these names are no longer in general use but very specific in old Armenian. Translator, William Whiston in The Complete Works of Flavius Josephus, in Antiquities of the Jews, footnotes that this place was called "Naxuan, the place of the first descent." Here he quoted Armenian historian Moses of Chronensis. This "place of first descent" is the city Mesha-Naxuan, the first "city" built by the flood survivors and their descendants.

53 “ The media ” say that it ’ s “ a myth ” of course! But the Turks don ’ t seem to think so! Is Noah buried here?

54 Noah ’ s Tomb In Ararat East Turkey Why would anyone go through so much trouble to build such a huge tomb for some mythical person who never even existed?! It ’ s Huge! Was he a giant?

55 To answer a question scientifically, one needs to look at ALL the evidence. Are there any more related archaeological facts or historical records of some kind, of a mountain-high great flood, and some great big boat? Historical records and documents Well, let ’ s see!

56 The Sumerian king list: translation Then the flood swept over. “Then Larag fell and the kingship was taken to Zimbir. In Zimbir, En-men-dur- ana became king; he ruled for years. 1 king; he ruled for years. Then Zimbir fell and the kingship was taken to Curuppag. In Curuppag, Ubara- Tutu became king; he ruled for years. 1 king; he ruled for years. In 5 cities 8 kings; they ruled for years. Then the flood swept over. Sumerian history written after the Flood! If there was no flood, WHY, in the HOLY HEAVENS, would they ALL make one up? After the flood had swept over After the flood had swept over, and the kingship had descended from heaven, the kingship was in Kic. In Kic, Jucur became king; he ruled for 1200 years. Kullassina-bel ruled for 960 years. Nanjiclicma ruled for 670 years. En-tarah-ana ruled for 420 years... [Obviously their pre-flood history ruling periods are embellished by guesses]

57 The Bible recorded longer pre-flood life-spans! Noah co-existed with Methuselah and Abraham ’ s father Terah

58 The Tablet from Nippur (pic: Nippur Ziggurat) Many early versions of the flood story exist. The Sumerian Tablet of Nippur has one too, mentioning a “ huge boat ” ! It describes a god having advance knowledge of a coming torrential downpour and subsequent flooding. God liked people and warned a man about the coming flood. God liked people and warned a man about the coming flood. The man was commanded to build a boat in order to save his life. It was dated to a time before the Bible was written. “ All the windstorms which possess immense power, they all (and) together came, forth (again) … The rainstorm …. raged with them. When for seven days, and seven nights, the rainstorm had raged in the land; the huge boat on the great waters had been carried away by the windstorms. Samas (sun god) came forth, shedding light over Heaven and Earth. Ziasudra opened a … (window) … of the huge boat. The light of the hero Samas he let enter into the (interior) of the boat. ” [Translation from Arno Poeble's Historical Texts (1914) paraphrased.] SO it ’ s not a myth, but Sumerian HISTORY! This by secular historians designated “ myth ” is NO MYTH! It ’ s 90 % true! The Sumerians just didn ’ t have all the details right! ZiaSudra is just a Sumerian name for Noah!

59 Tablet of Nippur New york Times 1914

60 Flood story of Nippur Ziugidda is yet another name for Noah!

61 Cuneiform tablet with the Atrahasis Epic Yet another version of The Flood story The story outlines the structure of the universe according to Babylonian beliefs. Heaven is ruled by the god Anu, the earth by Enlil and the subterranean sweet water by Enki. The text then explains how the minor gods work in the fields but then rebel. As a result, humans are made from clay, saliva and divine blood to act as servants of the gods. This does not prove a perfect solution, as the humans reproduce and their noise disturbs Enlil's sleep. He decides to destroy them with plague, famine, drought and finally a flood. However, each time Enki instructs one of the humans, Atrahasis, to survive the disasters. The god gives Atrahasis seven days warning of the flood, and he builds a boat, loads it with his possessions, animals and birds. He is subsequently saved while the rest of humankind is destroyed. However, the gods are unhappy as they no longer receive the offerings they used to. There is a gap in the text at this point but it does end with Atrahasis making an offering & Enlil accepting the existence and usefulness of humans. Not a myth, but Babylonian version of HISTORY! Atrahasis is just another name for Noah again!

62 Epic of Gilgamesh Utnapishtim (the righteous pious one), tells Gilgamesh how the gods once decided to destroy the earth with a huge flood. The god Ea, however, let Utnapishtim in on the secret and counseled him to build a huge ship and load it with examples of every living creature. He did so. The rain poured for six days and seven nights and killed every living thing. Utnapishtim ’ s story then proceeds much like Noah ’ s until the end, when the gods make him and his wife immortal. Not a myth! Just another version of HISTORY! Utnapishtim (the righteous pious one) is yet another name for Noah!

63 The Wall of Heaven Picture of the Wall of Heaven Gilgamesh wrote of the home of "Utnapishtim the Faraway." his ancient forefather who had built a large ship to eacape the great flood. ( of Noah ). There at Noah ¹ s homeplace were "The mountains of MASHU...with their twin peaks...as high as the wall of heaven, which guards the rising and setting of the sun...above which only the dome of heaven reaches." -The Epic of Gilgamesh Tablet IX. Clearly Utnapishtim is Noah, of that there is little equivocation. "Ut nephish tam" is Hebrew for "continually pious being," which aligns with the biblical comment about Noah, the only righteous man on the earth prior to the flood.

65 The Bible mentions a worldwide flood & a boat in great detail : Gen 6:12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. 13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth. 17 And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die. ” Genesis 7 And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him. 6 And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth. 7 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. 8 Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creeps upon the earth, 9 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. 14 “ Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. 15 And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. 16 A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it. ” Genesis written by the “ Egyptian ” Hebrew Moses, mentions a 300 cubit boat or “ ark ” in great detail. 300 Egyptian cubits translate into 550 meters, which is almost the exact length of our ship-shape anomaly!

66 Well, let ’ s find some causality, shall we? There is an ancient ship-shape that “ behaved like a ship on an earth flow ”, has a “ backbone ”, looks like a ship, and is closely surrounded by 14 worldwide unique flail-stones or anchors, dropped on the way. There is an ancient ship-shape that “ behaved like a ship on an earth flow ”, has a “ backbone ”, looks like a ship, and is closely surrounded by 14 worldwide unique flail-stones or anchors, dropped on the way. An ancient city arose around its first known landing position that became a pilgrimage resort where many people also liked to get buried! City mentioned by ancient historians as the city of Noah, “ Naxuan! ” An ancient city arose around its first known landing position that became a pilgrimage resort where many people also liked to get buried! City mentioned by ancient historians as the city of Noah, “ Naxuan! ” The “ ship ” has almost the same length and width as Noah ’ s Ark in Genesis in the Bible! The “ ship ” has almost the same length and width as Noah ’ s Ark in Genesis in the Bible! Many civilisations ’ historians mention Noah, Ark & Flood.

A shrine with Noah ’ s tomb is situated there as well A shrine with Noah ’ s tomb is situated there as well Could it be that this “ ship-shape ” was in fact a ship that landed there after cutting loose and dropping its 14 anchor/flail-stones? Could it be that this “ ship-shape ” was in fact a ship that landed there after cutting loose and dropping its 14 anchor/flail-stones? I know it sounds odd on 7,400 feet above sea level, but look at the evidence! What could land a ship on top of a mountain 7,400 feet above sea level and drop its anchors 14 and 2 KM before it got stranded there on Mount Mesha? I know it sounds odd on 7,400 feet above sea level, but look at the evidence! What could land a ship on top of a mountain 7,400 feet above sea level and drop its anchors 14 and 2 KM before it got stranded there on Mount Mesha? A FLOOD perhaps? But that must have been some kind of flood! We are talking Mountain top level! Woe! A FLOOD perhaps? But that must have been some kind of flood! We are talking Mountain top level! Woe! There are hundreds of worldwide FLOOD STORIES … There are hundreds of worldwide FLOOD STORIES … The scientific method is about finding causality..

67 500+ Global flood traditions There are more than 500 stories from different cultures around the world about a devastating flood. The next chart shows the similarities that several “ myths ” have with the Genesis account of Noah ’ s Flood. Although there are varying degrees of accuracy, these legends and stories all contain similarities to aspects of the same historical event … Noah ’ s Flood.

68

69 Similar Flood “ myths! ” Hawaiians have a flood story that tells of a time when, long after the death of the first man, the world became a wicked, terrible place. Only one good man was left, and his name was NU-U. He made a great canoe with a house on it and filled it with animals. In this story, the waters came up over all the earth and killed all the people; only Nu-u and his family were saved. ANOTHER FLOOD STORY IS FROM CHINA. ( B.C.E.) author: Lie Yukou ( 列圄寇 ), in Liezi ( 列子 ), chapter 5: "Questions of Tang" ( 卷第五 湯問篇 ), paragraph 1:Liezi It describes Nüwa repairing the heavens after a great flood with 5 or 7 many-colored blocks of stones. (Like the rainbow!) It also states that Nüwa molded the first people out of clay.” Another tells about Fuxi and N ü wa and Shen Nong, three august kings, and five emperors as their descendents, who escaped a flood and were the only people alive on earth. After the flood, they repopulated the world. As the story of the Flood was verbally passed from one generation to the next, some aspects would have been lost or altered. And this is what has happened, as we can see from the chart. However, as seen in the given examples, each story shares remarkable similarities to the account of Noah in the Bible. Even in some of the details, such as the name Nu-u in the Hawaiian flood story. “ Nu-u ” and N ü wa is very similar to “ Noah. ”

70 Havasupai Indians, origins of Grand Canyon & the Flood Before there were any people on earth there were two gods. Tochapa of goodness and Hokomata of evil. Tochapa had a daughter named Pu-keh-eh, whom he hoped would become the mother of all living. Hokomata the evil was determined that no such thing should take place, and he covered the world with a great flood. Tochopa the good felled a great tree and hollowed out the trunk. He placed Pu- keh-eh in the hollowed trunk and when the water rose and flooded the earth. She was secure in her improvised boat. Finally the flood waters fell and mountain peaks emerged. Rivers were created; and one of them cut the great gushing fissure which became the Grand Canyon. Pu-keh-eh in her log came to rest on the new earth. She stepped forth and beheld an empty world. When the land became dry, a great golden sun rose in the east and warmed the earth and caused her to conceive. In time, she gave birth to a male child. Later a waterfall caused her to conceive and she gave birth to a girl. From the union of these two mortal children came all the people on the earth. The first were the Havasupai, and the voice of Tochopa spoke to them and told them to live forever in peace in their canyon of good earth and pure water where there would always be plenty for all! ’. Pu-keh-eh is just another (female) version of Noah

71 Aboriginal Flood Legend. It is the worldwide existence of traditional stories, such as this one from the Australian Aboriginals, which provides evidence that the common ancestor of today ’ s races was Noah. The earliest-time children living in those far-off days tormented & ill-treated the Winking Owl, Dumbi. A third time those children threw him up into the air, but this time Dumbi continued to go up and up through the clouds out of sight and right on up to Ngadja, the Supreme One. ‘ What has happened to you? ’ asked Ngadja, the Supreme Being. ‘ What have they done to you? ’ The owl then presented his complaint to him, saying, ‘ The children mocked me; they held me in ridicule and persecuted me. ’ Ngadja, the Supreme One, was inwardly grieved and felt deep sorrow for him, so he gathered his followers together and held a council with them. Ngadja, the Supreme Being, then instructed Gajara ‘ If you want to live, take your wife, your sons and your sons ’ wives and get a double raft. Because of the Dumbi affair, I intend to drown every one. I am about to send rain and a sea flood. ’ ‘ Put on the raft long-lasting foods that may be stored, ’ he told him. So Gajara stored all these foods. He also gathered birds of the air such as the cuckoo, the mistletoe-eater, the rainbow bird, the helmeted friar bird and finches — those he took on the raft, and also a female kangaroo. Ngadja then said, ‘ All is ready now. ’ Gajara gathered his sons as the crew, his own wife and his sons ’ wives together. Then Ngadja sent the rainclouds down, shutting the clouds in upon them. The sea-flood came in from the north-northeast and the people were closed in by the saltwater flood and the tidal waters of the sea. The flood began to sweep all the living creatures together and was pushing them all along to one place, Here the waters were spinning in a whirlpool and the people were screaming as they looked for a way of escape. Ngadja whirled the flood waters and the earth opened, drowning and flattening them all. Meanwhile, the flood carried all those who were on the raft with Gajara along on the current far away to where the world ends and the waters flow over. The flood-waters brought Gajara back in this direction. He sent some birds out from the raft, first the cuckoo. The cuckoo found the land and did not return to him. Gradually the waters were going down. The first land that Gahara sighted was the hilltop at Ngumbindji. ‘ Oh! ’ he said, ‘ I have found a hill! ’ and he was glad within himself. Then, as the waters continued to go down, he sighted Numbuzare. Later on, the other birds returned to Gajara and he sent them out again the following day. They arrived on the land and met Dumbi, the owl who said, ‘ Oh, you have returned already! ’ and invited them to stay. The land was already drying the waters up and the living creatures found a home and food. As the flood subsided Gajara noticed that it was leaving a water-mark like a painting along the hills. This is the flood spirit line, left there where the flood made it. With regard to the kangaroo which they had taken with them on the raft; they killed it after landing; and Gajara ’ s wife Galgalbiri put it in the earth oven and cooked it with other foods. The smoke rose slowly until it reached through into the sky. Ngadja, the Supreme Being, said, ‘ Oh, what is that smell? Ah, they are cooking a good kangaroo! The marrow smells; I can smell the odour. ’ Ngadja, the Supreme Being, put the rainbow in the sky to keep the rain-clouds back.

72 Flood stories & Legends Green = FULL represen tation of Biblical idea.

73 The Flood covered Mt. Ararat & the World’s highest mountains! Remarkable is the persistence of the biblical name Noah. Particularly so when you consider the language differences between peoples, and the local distortions which developed in flood legends. Yet Noah ’ s name survived virtually unchanged in such isolated places as Hawaii (Nu-u), the Sudan (Nuh), China (Nu-Wah), the Amazon region (Noa), Phrygia (Noe) and among the Hottentots (Noh). The Bible calls him Noah! He survived this worldwide flood on a boat full of ALL existing & extinct animals! Can you believe it?

74 Noah’s wife’s & children’s names: According to the Book of Jubilees, Noah ’ s wife was Emzara, the daughter of Rake'el, son of Methuselah, Wife of Shem - Sedeqetelebab, Wife of Ham - Ne'elatama'uk or Na'eltama'uk, Wife of Japheth - 'Adataneses. Armenian tradition names Noah's wife N ’ emzar, Noy ’ emzar or Noy ’ anzar. Early Christian writer St. Hippolytus (d. 235 AD) recounted a tradition of their names according to the Syriac Targum similar to Jubilees, although apparently switching the names of Shem's and Ham's wives. He wrote: “ The names of the wives of the sons of Noah are these: the name of the wife of Sem, Nahalath Mahnuk; and the name of the wife of Cham, Zedkat Nabu; and the name of the wife of Japheth, Arathka. Early Christian writer St. Hippolytus (d. 235 AD) recounted a tradition of their names according to the Syriac Targum similar to Jubilees, although apparently switching the names of Shem's and Ham's wives. He wrote: “ The names of the wives of the sons of Noah are these: the name of the wife of Sem, Nahalath Mahnuk; and the name of the wife of Cham, Zedkat Nabu; and the name of the wife of Japheth, Arathka. ”HippolytusSyriacTargumHippolytusSyriacTargum Persian historian Muhammad ibn Jarir al-Tabari (c. 915) recounts that Noah's wife was Amzurah, daughter of Barakil, son of Mehujael. Japheth's wife was Arbasisah, daughter of Marazil, son of al-Darmasil, son of Mehujael, son of Enoch, son of Cain; that Ham's wife was Naḥlab, daughter of Marib, another son of al-Darmasil; and that Shem's wife was Ṣalib, daughter of Batawil, another son of Mehujael. Muhammad ibn Jarir al-TabariMuhammad ibn Jarir al-Tabari Emzara=N ’ emzar =Noy ’ emzar =Noy ’ anzar=Amzurah! That ’ s all mighty close! “ And in the twenty-fifth [1205 A.M.] jubilee, Noah took to himself a wife, and her name was Emzara, the daughter of Rake'el, the daughter of his father's brother, in the first year in the fifth week [1207 A.M.]: and in the third year thereof she bare him Shem, in the fifth year thereof [1209 A.M.] she bare him Ham, and in the first year in the sixth week [1212 A.M.] she bare him Japheth. “

75 Why so much evidence!? It ’ s just that the mercantile corporate elite who control this world ’ s education and media, do not like independent thinkers, and therefore do not want a TRUE Bible which makes people free from their enslaving take on life! Because it is true history perhaps?

76 Many Christians have preconceived ideas that Noah’s Ark landed on Mt. Ararat (#1) itself! But did it really? We ’ ve concluded long ago, that it would have been impossible for men & animals to land on such a steep mountain & live, sleep, work & feed animals in such a slanted position for almost 10 months until they disembarked! How can giraffes & Elephants stand in a 20 degree slant?

78 Was the Ark really a wooden box? Or a reed built Egyptian style vessel?

79 Yet Another Possible Look of the Ark? This great ship was not constructed with keel and rib construction, as later ships developed by man were. It would not have been sufficiently strong using that inferior design technique given its great size. Naval architects are all in agreement. "One cannot build such a large ship with wood." they say. "Wood is not strong enough." They are all limited in their scope of thinking. They cannot conceive that Yahweh, their creator, could have seen beyond their own designs and offered Noah a design that would bypass all of man's later naval development and be indeed, constructable and usable. The ship was, and could only have been, a fully triangulated wooden space-frame, with an internal built-up spar structure, making it stronger than a Boeing Flying Fortress wing in scale. It was held together with iron pins on tongue and groove attachments.

80 Was this the Ark ’ s structure?

81 Built of gopher wood … After covering the ark with outer wooden skin, she was coated inside and out, as caulking, with “ kpr ” (kapher), a Hebrew word meaning "bitumen" or "tar" to seal any small spaces between the wood, making the ship completely water tight. The false reading "Gopher wood" in the KJV Bible translation, was caused, or evolved by means of a Hebrew scribal error. The Hebrew letter (K) and (G) are comparable, especially when written by hand with a brush. "Kopher wood," in fact is any wood covered with tar (kpr). The English word "koffer" evolved from this Hebrew word.

82 Size & shape of the ARK The hull impression is 538 feet in length measured in 1988 by Fasold & Baumgardner. Originally the ship measured 550 feet overall, which is precisely 300 cubits of 22 inch length. This cubit length was determined by dividing the sub-surface bulkhead measurements done by Fasold and Bamgardner, by the smallest (closest to the cubit) common denominator, which was 22 inches. (Egyptian cubit=22.6)

84 Was Ron Wyatt Totally Wrong? Many people have theories, and so did Wyatt. Who is to say whose theories hold most water? Just PHD-s and titles? Come on! Many of those believe in Human Carbon-caused Global Warming! But scientists are fighting against this Globalist deception! Voila! It ALL depends on WHO you listen to. Here Ron Wyatt is checking out what he believes are the detritus impressions of former timbers!

85 Here are some interesting Wyatt theories, on the timbers, and the splaying of the ark.

87 Hull Rib Timbers and Metal rivets? And presumed metal rivets of the ark

88 Petrified Wood Samples?

89 People in Hong Kong believe the Bible! and built a life-size copy of the ark, how they theorised it looked like Their guess is as good as mine! – Or yours?

91 Matt 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. ” Visit our site, or go straight to our powerpoints page at
