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.

Hey Christian, you never know, they might find Coptic inscriptions on the floor of the ark. Perhaps Noah was really a gnostic after all.

You'll have to imagine the strikeouts, as HTML here doesn't appear to support them.

Evidence shows it to be a hoax.
