Noah’s Ark located in Turkey! (except it wasn’t)
April 27, 2010 by William K. Wolfrum
In keeping with the theme of the previous post, big-time journalists like Matt Drudge and Andrew Breitbart are now promoting a story that Noah’s Ark has been located in Turkey. Fox News is also giving the story ample PR.
Drudge links to a story at the UK Sun:
THE remains of Noah’s Ark have been discovered 13,000ft up a Turkish mountain, it has been claimed.
A group of Chinese and Turkish evangelical explorers say they have found wooden remains on Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey.
They claim carbon dating proves the relics are 4,800 years old — around the same time the ark was said to be afloat.
Somehow, biblical discoveries are only made by evangelists and UFO discoveries are only made by UFO fetishists. Go figure.
Breitbart even includes video:
Now that’s journalism you can believe in. The only problem? It’s complete and utter bollocks. First off, there was no “Noah’s Ark” so there’s nothing to find. Secondly, the story is bollocks.
Remember, kids, when you see stories about UFOs, Noah’s Ark and other such things, they all share one common thread – they are not true. Ever.
Update: Hey, how about that. It was a hoax.
