Noah's Ark found ... again

"A group of Chinese and Turkish evangelical Christians claim to have uncovered remnants of Noah's Ark on its legendary mountain resting place in Turkey. "

I sure that we will hear more in the coming year, especially if UNESCO responds. Read more and see a supposed photograph, here.

UPDATE: Apparently, the whole thing is a hoax (we can't blame the Kurdish villagers for having a bit of fun, can we?). Image that. Read Mike Heiser's blog entry here. Thanks, Mike.
