    I don't think so. I am afraid that if we ever did find physical evidence of Noah's ark that lots of people would make an idol of it.

    [​IMG] I seriously doubt we'll ever find it...and if we do...we won't realize what it is. It would be turned into a zoo if the true ark was found.

    Personally, I think that when Noah went to offer his first sacrifice, he looked around and said, "Now, where would I find some wood... Oh, of course!" and off would come a hunk of wood.

    Then, when he decided to build shelter, "Now, what could I use to frame a house... Oh, of course!" and off would come a bunch of wood.

    However, if it is still there, people would certainly idolize, but... (This is an important "but") How many people would then believe because "that ridiculous story" is true? It could have a good effect on some.

    ==Sadly I must agree. After all look at all the fuss that is made when someone sees "Mary" in their toast or own their shower tile. :type:

    Now wait just a minute....I think I see Elvis in my potato chip....I swear I do! :tongue3: :laugh:

    Seriously, I know what you mean. People have placed their "faith" in paintings, crawling on their bloody hands and knees up a mountain of steps to kiss it.....all in the name of God.

    The Virgin Mary in toast, the cup that Jesus drank from at the last supper, Noah's ark, the spear that pierced Jesus' side, the Shroud of Tourin.......real and imagined "artifacts" and "icons".

    .....just think how many people longed for these things to the point of obsession and lost their immortal soul to the pits of hell because they never cared about Jesus, the Christ.

    Was hopeing the post would take on a biblical archeology direction but oh well, to each his own cynicism.

    Perhaps some more information would help :type:

    "It was obviously manmade and it was obviously rock now and it was obviously wood. If we could find some evidence that noah's ark really existed,i thought that could cause thousands and ten thousands of people to say that maybe the rest of the bible is true too, says texas native arch bonnema.


    (Pretty good posistive motive imho)...nothin I could read where they are going to sell pieces of petrified wood as idols:tongue3:

    That's sort of what I said.

    Although we are to walk by faith, not by sight, if that sight caused more people to be saved, it could have a positive effect in people accepting the Lord, but the negative effect of them idolizing it, just as they do so many other "spiritual" things.

    Most of the folks in Jesus' day who saw the miracles He did with their own eyes didn't believe in Him.

    If seeing physical evidence of Noah's ark would make a difference in the eternal destiny of even one soul then I am sure that God would have had the ark discovered.
