Don’t know the guy. There is a man who periodically visits our church, an archeologist, who thinks they discovered Noah’s Ark at 13,000 feet above sea level at Mount Salomon, Iran. According to their findings, I am nothing short of credulity in this area. They sent, without specifying what they thought it was, samples of the ship to NASA, the Smithsonian Institute, and the top geological institutes in the country asking what it was, and five out of five tests confirmed it: It is the remains of an ancient ship. Not only that, but they discovered sea creatures who’d burrowed into the ship over months and who’d also become petrified, indicating the vessel had been at sea for quite some time. Modern day Mount Ararat in Turkey cannot be the site because the Genesis account describes a mountain range.
He also visited the site in Ethipia where it is believed the Ark of the Covenant is held. The Guardian (a Levitical priest and semi-Christian) who lives within the Ark’s same housing facility is never permitted to leave after entering. He does, however, periodically appear at the door for 30 seconds to bless the community before retreating back to his room to pray. Well, Arch (the archeologist’s name) arranged to meet with him, even if only for 30 seconds and a blessing. However, upon meeting him, The Guardian stayed out for five minutes as Arch showed him pictures of the Noah’s Ark discovery. He told him, “You must come back again, and soon. We need to have a long conversation.” Upon their meeting, The Guardian, after catching his name, said, “I had no idea you were Arch Bonavan! God told me several years ago that I would receive a visit from you.” He’s a Baptist, so he was a little scared at this, but amazed. I cannot recount their findings in either case to you now. I know a movie is in the works and they will soon publicize more of their discoveries.
