Global warming has exposed on Mount Ararat legendary ship?
In the Monday, April 26, at a press conference in Washington, DC Dr. Daniel McGivern announced that the study of photographs of Mount Ararat, made space satellite, exactly proved that known anomaly on the slopes of the mountain, at an altitude of 4725 meters above sea level, has a length of about 183 m — "work of human hands."
"This has left no doubt — says the doctor — and now we have started negotiations with the government of Turkey (the artifact is in the border area, where foreigners are not allowed. — Ed.), We were allowed to spend the summer digging. Then we can say for sure, if this is the legendary Ark, where the pious Noah and his family survived the Great Flood, as described in the Bible. " According to the plans of Dr. McGivern, the expedition will go to the excavations in August.
The pictures that presented the journalists were taken last summer from satellite Quick Bird («Quick Bird"), but the transcript was completed recently. Commercial unit was launched by Space Global Imadging in the project to create a digital globe of the Earth. The newest equipment on the satellite allowed to take pictures with a resolution of up to 60 cm By the same researchers were lucky: the summer of last year in the Northern Hemisphere has become one of the hottest in the last few centuries. Glaciers on Mount Ararat noticeably melted, revealing a significant part of the artifact.
Noah's Ark 'found' in the past. First pictures of him, called "Ararat anomaly", "surfaced" in 1995. They published the CIA, saying the pictures were taken in 1949 with the aircraft. The following were received in 2000 from the satellite "Icon". All of them were not clear and caused a controversy. But more than others puzzled photograph taken Turkish Lieutenant Curtis in 1959. He also captured the plane remains of some huge ship on the slopes of Mount Ararat. Only the ship was lying about 20 kilometers from the "Ararat anomaly" and 2000 meters below. This led some scientists to suggest that there were two arks. And Noah had come for the old days someone else. Scheduled for August expedition should dispel all doubts.

Who is Noah
Noah — a descendant of Adam in the ninth lap. Built the ark at the age of 600 years — to save the living creatures of the flood on the advice of the Lord God. Each creature has taken on the couple. On the ark booted 8 people — Noah and his wife, his sons Ham, Shem, and Japheth and their wives. Swam about 200 days. The bailiff to the "mountains of Ararat", lived in the ark still 365 days until the water is not asleep.
According to the biblical record, the length of the ark was 160 meters, width — 25, height — 15. The ratio of the length and width — 6:1. Roughly the same proportion of the show and were photographed with satellite facilities.
They climbed into the
Author Charles Berlitz in his book "The Lost Ship of Noah" is a testimony of Armenian George Hagopyana. He said that in 1905, when 8-year-old boy who climbed Mount Ararat with her grandfather. Found the ark and went inside. On the upper deck saw an add with many windows. The case of the ark was huge and hard as a rock.
In 1939, the American magazine "New Eden," an interview with a former pilot in the royal army lieutenant Roskovitsky, who allegedly found the ark in 1916 during a reconnaissance flight. Reported to the king. Nicholas II sent an expedition — 150. For two weeks they reached the ark. According Roskovitsky, the ship was like a giant barge and freight car at a time. Inside were a number of rooms — large and small. And the young are tight metal mesh.

Do not whine: Noah was!
It was invented by writers
Of the thousands of years of cultural depths reached us two monuments of literature devoted to the same geographic area. A sample of this realism — the poem "On Mount Ararat is maturing sweet grapes" (which is true: many a headache from this fruit made into a selective Armenian brandy). And the world's first "fantasy" called "Old Testament" with a fragment of starikane Noah and his ark, which "stopped in the mountains of Ararat."
Nasochinyat, of course, everything is possible. As the rain poured down forty days in a row and icebergs melted (apparently they have in the ancient world was global warming?). Noah fathered his first child in 500 short years, and only lived 950 years (and which is now struggling as gerontologists on the problem of longevity, and pharmacists "Viagra" invent?). And during the flood this activist sex for seniors stuck in his ark "pair of every creature," and anyone who did not get into this flotation device, washed in Figure (interestingly, bacteria and germs as representatives of the living world too settled in the ark two by two ?) …
This is a hangover from what should be, that on the basis of such "scientific evidence" to continue to search for the remains of the ark? So imagine: it will take years, 300 — 400, and the offspring enthusiast, having studied the manuscript under the title "Lord of the Rings" and organized the expedition in the footsteps of the hobbits, elves and goblins. And that, druids, too wooden. Like Noah's ark …
