Noah's Ark Found 20 miles SSW of Mt. Ararat Turkey

I attended a wedding in Ohio in 2001 at The Chapel in Marlboro in Hartville Ohio pastored by Joel Cochran. In the church foyer, I noticed off to the side, a large model with trains, a house, a truck and something large behind the train. I've never seen a train set in a church before so I took a closer look. What I found was an amazing scale model that someone at the church had apparently built. A model of Noah's Ark in scale with some items that we see today.

To see a larger scan of the picture click here As you can see from the model, Noah's Ark as described in the Bible is huge!

How does this fit in with today's events? The Bible states that Noah's Ark came to rest on the Mountains of Ararat....

Genesis 8:1-5 (New Living Translation)
"But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and livestock with him in the boat. He sent a wind to blow across the earth, and the floodwaters began to recede. The underground waters stopped flowing, and the torrential rains from the sky were stopped. So the floodwaters gradually receded from the earth. After 150 days, exactly five months from the time the flood began, the boat came to rest on the mountains of Ararat. Two and a half months later, as the waters continued to go down, other mountain peaks became visible."

ArkDiscovery.com has a very convincing page, complete with 35 minute video of Noah's Ark being rediscovered on a mountain within sight of Mt. Ararat on Cesnakidag Mountain (Doomsday Mountain)

After viewing the page and watching video and viewing pictures and evidence on this mountain, I would say that this is proof that Noah's Ark exists and is in fact on this Cesnakidag Mountain.
Check it out. It looks to me like this is NOAH's ARK.
Coordinates of Mountain: 39 26' 26.09" N  and 44 14' 04.29" E
Roughly 20 miles South-Southwest of Mt. Ararat.
In Turkey, a couple miles from the Iranian border.

The Turkish government Noah's Ark Visitor center is visible a few hundred yards north west of Noah's Ark in the map link above.
Noah's Ark is 515 feet long, and likely the largest wooden ship built in history.
We don't know how many trees, metal, glue and other materials it took Noah and his son's to build Noah's Ark. However, another wooden ship, the 227 foot long HMS Victory, is said to have taken around 6,000 trees. (HMS Victory source wikipedia)

Concerning the 35 minute video displayed on ArkDiscovery.com. The video on the page is about 10 inches down from the top of the page when I look at it on my computer.

If the above is somehow not convincing to you, then Ark Researcher, Bill Crouse, has stated the Ark of Noah is actually on Cudi Dagh. A mountain roughly 7000 feet tall located about 200 miles south and 50 miles west of Mt. Ararat. Cudi Dagh is near the southern border of Turkey overlooking the Mesopotamian plain. Cudi Dagh coordinates: 37 degrees, 21 minutes N., 42 degrees, 17 minutes E

Genesis 6:13 So God said to Noah, "I have decided to destroy all living creatures, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. Yes, I will wipe them all from the face of the earth!

Genesis 7:1 Finally, the day came when the LORD said to Noah, "Go into the boat with all your family, for among all the people of the earth, I consider you alone to be righteous.

Genesis 7:11 When Noah was 600 years old, on the seventeenth day of the second month, the underground waters burst forth on the earth, and the rain fell in mighty torrents from the sky.

Genesis 7:23 Every living thing on the earth was wiped out - people, animals both large and small, and birds. They were all destroyed, and only Noah was left alive, along with those who were with him in the boat.
