I had the good fortune of coming across the book, The Stars: A New Way to See Them by H. A. Rey some time ago. Rey’s book helped me understand the relationship between the earth’s daily rotation, its yearly revolution around the sun, and the place and appearance of the constellations. When I share my knowledge of the night sky with others, I begin by asking if anyone in the group can find the North Star because it is our frame of reference for what appears elsewhere. Almost invariably, someone in the group says, “The North Star is the brightest star, right?” Polaris is certainly visible to the naked eye, but as a second magnitude star in Ursa Minor, it is very far from the brightest, the Dog Star Sirius. There is no logical reason to assume that the earth’s axis conveniently points to the brightest star, yet people make that unwarranted assumption quite often.
A similar illogical and unwarranted assumption prevails relating to the landing spot of Noah’s ark. People—highly educated people—are sure that Noah’s ark landed on the remote and inaccessible heights of Mount Ararat, a 17,000-foot volcanic mountain in modern-day Turkey. The Book of Genesis does not say that the ark landed near the top of Ararat, or even on Ararat, but rather “on the mountains of Ararat” (Genesis 8:4).

A remarkable anomaly was discovered on this Earth. A strange, man-made-like ship-shape with a sharp bow and rounded stern, plus other archaeological artifacts obviously related to it, are all situated at the very same geographic spot, with related ancient place names, but to top it all off, there exists related documentation in hundreds of historical annals, ancient legends, local lore, even evidenced on ancient cuneiform tablets.
Fascinating? You choose the word! More than fascinating! We find no words to describe this amazing discovery, which strangely enough is fully and studiously ignored by–who else but–the global mainstream media.
Well, most of us bloggers are hardly surprised by that, as millions have now turned to the blogs for news and true info. A Gallup poll showed how 57 % of Americans have “little or no trust anymore in the mainstream media”, an attitude that seems to be reflected worldwide.
An additional, comical poll-result was, that the most gullible sections among the US public who still trust the media, appear to be “the youth and liberals“, or “leftists” as we call them in the rest of the world. Of course we can forgive young people for being rather ignorant, as they just didn’t have the time yet, nor experience to form a well-balanced and historically just viewpoint, being raised on Micky Mouse, Sponge Bob, Simpsons, Disney, CNN, Fox, Yahoo, and Wikipedia! Ha! But the poor leftists? Ay, ay, ay! But lets not digress… Back to the amazing anomaly! Continue reading The discovery of an amazing ship-shape anomaly & its cover-up! Is it Noah’s Ark?
