Biblical archaeologists discovered a “boat-like formation” in Eastern Turkey using 3D scans. And it matches the biblical description of Noah’s ark.
Project Noah’s Ark Scans
Project Noah’s Ark Scans, led by Andrew Jones and other archeologists, penetrated the ground site using a GPR (ground-penetrating radar). According to U.S. Sun, they found the boat-shaped formation beneath to have matched Noah’s ark described in the Bible.
“This is not what you would expect to see if this site is just a solid block of rock. Or an accumulation of random debris from a mudflow,” Andrew told U.S. Sun. “But these results are what you would expect to see if this is a man-made boat matching the Biblical requirements..”
Also, the boat-like formation discovered has the “exact length” of the ark, It’s around 150 meters, or 300 cubits in biblical measurement.
However, despite the recent mind-blowing discovery, some geologists argued that the formation isn’t the ark. For them, it’s simply an unusual rock formation.
But Ryan Mauro, who is also part of the project says that the recent findings are authentic. And it supports the description of the biblical ark.
“It’s a whole new ballgame now,” Ryan told the news outlet. “Those judgments dismissing the site were made decades ago and based on limited data compared to what we have now. As I learned more, I became convinced that the project was worth my support and that it is vital that we determine the truth about the Durupinar site.”
Further, traditionally, Noah’s ark (Genesis 8:4) is believed to be located near the mountains of Ararat, in Mount Tendürek. Moreover, according to Noah’s Ark Scans website, the Turkish Army Captain Ilhan Durupinar discovered it in 1959. And soon after, the first discovery sparked interest in the site among geologists and archeologists.
