Ark Encounter

Answers in Genesis is building a theme park called the Ark Encounter with a full-scale reconstruction of the Ark as well as a Tower of Babel.
In 2010 Noah’s Ark Ministries International (NAMI) based in Hong Kong claimed that they have discovered Noah’s Ark on Mt. Ararat. Here is one response to many who have been skeptical of this exploration.

These videos highlight NAMI’s expedition:

A recently translated Babylonian text states that the Ark was circular (definitely not seaworthy). However, the NAMI team discovered a round compartment within the structure they investigated. This report of a circular Ark came from the Guardian which was at least kind enough to interview veteran Ark explorer John Morris.

Respected apologist John Warwick Montgomery reached the summit of Mt. Ararat and wrote a 384 page book containing eyewitness accounts of Ark sightings (The Quest for Noah’s Ark, Bethany Fellowship, 2e, 1974).
