Lost Ark?


I keep running across references to Noah's Ark and Mt. Ararat combined with words like 'satellite imagery' and 'unexplained anomaly'. The following from space.com:

[...]Aircraft pictures taken in the late 1940s, as well as more recent secret spy satellite shots of the area do show something odd - a bit of strangeness that has earned the title of the "Ararat Anomaly".[...]

[...]Indeed, the secrecy wraps have come off a partial set of aerial images taken over that location in June 1949. They do show something at the 15,500-foot level on the mountain's Northwestern Plateau. [...]

[...]The anomaly is more than 600-feet long (183 meters), Taylor said, at least the section visible in aerial and satellite imagery. Photo interpretation specialists, he said, do think they perceive actual boat structure in the pictures.[...]

This is so frustrating. We've had high-rez satellite technology for how long now? With resolving power to show the girder structure on the Eiffel Tower, identify terrorist training camps, even read license plates for pete's sake! And after all this time, we still haven't positively identified a 600-foot structure at 15,000 feet that could conceivably be the greatest archeological discovery in history? Forgive me if I'm a little skeptical. The secrecy arguments and conspiracy theories don't sit well with me either...I just don't think this is the sort of thing that would be covered up, if there was anything to it. But hey, I've been wrong before, and I hope I'm wrong this time.

Why in the world would they classify pictures of the top of Mt. Ararat???

An excellent read, btw.

The powers that be forced my earlier post to vanish!

I believe the reason why governments are collectively holding out on the satellite imagery, is because if the photos were released and they unmistakeably depicted the Ark, just think of the chaos that would ensue. With a topic like that being proven, so much would be proven correct and entire religions would be turned upside-down. Do we really want to take a chance and maybe throw the world into a chaotic mess, or leave it all up to just having faith and hope that the Ark is there?
