A new sattelite image of the famous protruding structure high on Turkey’s Mt. Ararat reveals it to be “boat shaped.”

For years, it has been claimed that the structure is indeed the biblical ark of Noah, which allegedly came to rest on that very mountain. Now, the first ever investigative expedition permitted by the Turkish government will set forth in hopes of reaching the ark. The results may disprove the popular scientific theory that although the flood could have happened, it is impossible for the ark to have settled that high.

While the risky expedition may contain a serious element of “survival of the fittest” (as with any cold mountain climbing endeavor) the potential discovery could leave non-believers treading high water.
