Satellite Image of Noah’s Ark?

I’ve resisted the urge to post about this, but it is interesting, despite being rediculously unlikely. Don’t get me wrong, I’d be thrilled if such a discovery was made. That’d be seriously cool.

So CNN and Space.com are reporting that satellite images of Mt. Ararat show a distinctly “boat shaped thing” about 15k ft high.

Images taken by aircraft, intelligence-gathering satellites and commercial remote-sensing spacecraft are fueling an intensive study of the intriguing oddity. But whether the anomaly is some geological quirk of nature, playful shadows, a human-made structure of some sort, or simply nothing at all remains to be seen.

Whatever it is, the anomaly of interest rests at 15,300 feet (4,663 meters) on the northwest corner of Mount Ararat, and is nearly submerged in glacial ice. It would be easy to call it merely a strange rock formation.

One of the problems with this idea is the scale of the “ship”.

The face of the anomaly measured 1,015 feet (309 meters) across, Franz said. “I also found the shape of the anomaly appears to fit on a circle. I am not sure what this means, if anything, but I find it curious.”

Given that length, Taylor pointed out, the anomaly dwarfs the Titanic and Bismarck in size, and equals the size of the largest modern aircraft carrier. That analysis would seem to call into question whether the anomaly is a wooden ship and raises a key question: If a boat were truly that huge, would it float?

Soooo, a wooden aircraft carrier? I mean, if you believe in miracles, I guess anything’s possible isn’t it?

  1. To fit two of each species of animal, wouldn’t it have to be pretty huge?
