CHINESE DISCOVERY REPORT I have been asked about a joint Turkish-Chinese expedition that claimed to have found Noah’s Ark on Mount Ararat in Turkey. They took pictures of what they alleged were inside a structure that contained wooden beams carbon-dated to 4,800 years old.
However, a member of the expedition, Dr Randall Price, reports:
“I was the archaeologist with the Chinese expedition in the summer of 2008 and was given photos of what they now are reporting to be the inside of the Ark. “I and my partners invested $100,000 in this expedition, which they have retained, despite their promise and our requests to return it, since it was not used for the expedition.
“The information given below is my opinion based on what I have seen and heard (from others who claim to have been eyewitnesses or know the exact details).
“To make a long story short: this is all reported to be a fake. The photos were reputed to have been taken off site near the Black Sea, but the film footage the Chinese now have was shot on location on Mt. Ararat.
