    I was just watching the history channel and they were talking about the ark. A man was retelling a supposed eye witness account from earlier this century by a man who claimed to see the ark and actually walk it's deck. He told of bird cages with iron bars. A so called Biblical scholor was interviwed but said that iron was not discovered before the flood but in Gen 4:22 we read of Tubal Cain who worked in brass and iron. Now I know these so called scholors are usually not but I thought it odd how he believes apparently in the flood account but not that the Bible is accurate about working with iron and metal pre dating the flood. Anybody else see the show and anyone who has a thought on this issue.

    I was just turning channels and only saw the last 5 minutes. Would have liked to have seen that.
    These scholars usually believe some events of scripture, anything they can explained without God(I recall hearing the wind blew the red sea till it parted, no God required). Seems if you believe any of it, it requires you believe all of it.

    In spite of what the History Channel can or cannot dig up----don't cha just love the spiritual significance of that ark??

    How that when Noah was "a hundred twenty years in building" it---when it was complete---God offers Noah the invitation/command to "come into the ark"--then Jesus begins His earthly ministry and one of the very first phrases that flows from His precious mouth was "Come unto Me!"

    And then the very last message that the Spirit of Jesus offers to the world in the closing pages of Revelation is--"The Spirit and the Bride say, Come . . ."

    The church is often like Noah's ark. If it weren't for the storm on the outside, we couldn't stand the smell on the inside.

    Speaking of Noah's Ark, anyone remember that movie that came out on TV about 5 or 6 years ago by the same name? It had Noah and Lot as contemporaries on the Ark, with pirate attacks and other crazy things. It had God becoming confused about whether He made the right decision to spare Noah and his family, and it took Him quite some time to finally decide to continue with Noah. <shudders>

    But the word says nothing about a 'stinkless' church ;)

    Dear CS, I passed by that the other night, but didn't have a chance to get to watch it. I will look again, usually the History channel repeats those shows during the course of the week; hopefully I can see it and maybe be able to discuss it some.

    After listening to several of the historical Biblical documentaries on the Discovery/Learning channel and thier so called scholars, I am amazed anybody bothers with them.
    They like to go after scolars from such highly regarded religious institutions as yale,harvard,purdue and the like. Now I realize these schools started out as higher institutions of learning with the Bible and God at the center of learning but they have discarded these principles long ago.These people make me want to puke. Professional religionists who don't even seem to believe in God. They should be honest enough to go get a job at burger king.I hate to hear it when they say I imagine it must have been this way because that could'nt happen blah blah blah.

    My husband has been involved with helping coordinate a number of the Ark searches through the years. As of this date, all explored sites have come up empty, despite claims to the contrary. Many of the objects which have been claimed to be the Ark turn out to be natural rock formations upon investigation.
