Proof of the Flood and Noah's ark?

Say WHAT?!

Watching and reading how various groups and individuals and studies have tried very hard to prove the existence of the ark and flood is some damn fine entertainment.

Listen to what this guy says because it is too funny. The Quran is right and the Bible is wrong. Bitch, BOTH books are wrong. And this guy's naming of his message as a 'miracle of Islam' is a delicious laugh. The only miracle of Islam, much like every other violent religion (including Christianity), is that human beings are still alive and breathing despite many horrible acts of war and death as opposing faiths attempt to prove to each other that one's invisible friend is better than the other's.
I suppose the dramatic music in this clip is intended to instill a sense of authenticity as to the claim of the ark being found.

Okay, so it is proposed here that there is indeed evidence of a great flood having occurred on this planet. Really? Like we didn't already know this. Any person with half a brain would know that there have in fact been a great many major floods on this planet and there is plenty of geologic evidence as to this fact. But, the evidence that there have indeed been many great floods is NOT evidence for the flood of Noah when the water was so high OVER THE ENTIRE PLANET that it even covered the highest peak (Mount Everest) by  more than just a few feet.

I think it is hilarious that the title of this clip includes the words "Proof of the Supernatural." There is nothing supernatural about finding a bunch of old shit buried in an ice pack or glacier. Scientists do that of stuff all the time, finding old stuff buried in ice, that is. There is something there, sure. Whether or not people put it there out of a desire to validate their faith delusions is not even a question. The question is why do they think it is the ark of Noah? Because it is old and buried near or on a mountain mentioned in the Bible? Look at the dimensions of what was 'discovered' and try to work it out in your mind how even one tenth of the species of animals on this planet could fit onto something so small. There is no problem in wanting to continue mythology within culture as it is good to remember our roots, traditions and growth as human beings. It is also great for interesting entertainment. But there is a problem with pursuing (and quite persistently at that) mythology as truth as nothing could be further from the truth. That is why it is called mythology.

So, some folks say they are 99% sure they have found Noah's Ark. What a bunch of horseshit. Christians will go for less than 100% sure on whether or not they have found Noah's Ark but they won't go for less than 100% when science presents sound theories as to how the universe and everything it in was formed. That is not balanced thinking, but rather is another example of religion and its proponents using the numbers only when they feel it is in their favor to do so. Also, by saying they are 99% sure and not 100% sure they give themselves a little wiggle room for error.

Ah, yet another video sporting an array of photos backed by dramatic music intended to be evidence for Noah's Ark. Don't even try telling them it is natural geologic formations as you will be wasting your breath.

Not one person with a general knowledge of geology will ever try to assert there have not been great floods on this planet. However, they will not assert that there has ever been one massive flood where absolutely ALL land on the planet was at the same time completely covered by water that covered the highest peak (Mount Everest as over 29,000 feet). There is not even enough water on the planet for such an event to occur. Of course, this is where Christians whip out their little book of mysteries and wave a wand.

Listen to the answer that is given to this kid as he inquires about Noah's flood. The answers are condescending and in themselves really don't answer a goddamn thing. And the guy's opinion of how the mountains were formed and how long it took them to form is equally fucked.

I like that the cartoon animals in this clip are actually helping Noah to build the ark.

Oh yes. LOTS of folks have claimed to have found or discovered the ark. Such claims are nothing new at all.'s_Ark
