This week let’s take a quick look at what some archeologists believe is the remains of the lost Noah’s Ark.

Genesis 8:3  The water receded steadily from the earth.  At the end of the hundred and fifty days the water had
gone down, and on the seventeenth day of the seventh month the ark came to rest on the mountain of
Ararat.

The photos above matches this scripture.  Many believe this is Noah’s Ark which was found in Turkey on
Mount Ararat.  It was originally photographed in 1960 at an elevation of 13,000 feet on Mount Ararat.  Since
then, many groups have studied the possible ark.

One end of the ark is pointed like the bow of a ship and the opposite end is blunt like the stern of a ship.

In Genesis 6:15 the length of the ark is 300 cubits or 450 feet.  The height is 30 cubits or 45 feet high.

The photo above is 515 feet in length.  The difference in length could have been caused by decaying and each
side falling forward.  Also, movement of the ground could have caused the decaying Ark to increase in length.
And because the cubit (elbow to finger tips) varies in length from Hebrew to Babylon to Egypt, 300 cubits may be
exactly 515 feet?

Many more photos and information about this archeological site can be found on the internet.

After the flood receded and the animals left the ark, God established a covenant.

Genesis 9:8  Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him: I now establish my covenant with you, and with
your descendants after you and every living creature that was with you-

Genesis 9:11  I establish my covenant with you:  Never again will all life be cut off by the waters of the 
flood;  never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.

God promises Noah, all people and all living creatures to come that there will never again be a flood to destroy the
earth.  But how does God remind us of his covenant?

Genesis 9:12  And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every
living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come.

Genesis 9:13  I have set a rainbow in the clouds and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the
earth.

Genesis 9:16  Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting
covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on earth.

Whenever you see a rainbow, it is a reminder of Gods covenant that he will never again flood the earth to destroy it.

Have you ever noticed that a rainbow appears when it stops raining and the sun appears, just like for Noah?

Although God will never again destroy the earth by a flood, one day there will be a new heaven and a new earth as
we will study in Revelation.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

The waters receded.

Genesis 8:1  But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and the livestock that were with him in the ark,
and he sent a wind over the earth, and the waters receded.

Genesis 8:13  By the first day of the first month of Noah’s six hundred and first year, the water had dried up 
from the earth.

Genesis 8:15  Then God said to Noah, “Come out of the ark, you and your wife and your sons and their wives.
Bring out every living creature that is with you.

Genesis 8:17  Bring out every kind of living creature that is with you- the birds, the animals, and all the 
creatures that move along the ground-  so they can multiply on the earth and be fruitful and increase in num-
ber upon it.

The waters dried up and Noah and the animals came out of the ark.  Noah’s family and the animals were
to multiply and increase in number.

Next week, the covenant God made with Noah and all generations to come.  The sign of this covenant can still
be seen today.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Let’s read about one more archeological site located in central Burma.  This site is estimated at over 10,000 feet
deep and divided into three layers.

The upper layer is jammed full of hundreds of different kinds of fossil life, including the mastodon, hippopotamus
and ox.

Again, the animal fossils are so many and so varied of species that the animal world of today seems impoverished.

Animals are mixed that don’t normally live together.  Sea life is mixed with land animals and with human artifacts.

A volcanic eruption could not have killed so many animals of so many different species (sea and land animals),
from around the world and deposited them in one area.

This archeological site supports the idea of a great flood, killing many plants, trees, sea life and land animals.  The
mighty waves scrambled them, creating a site of fossils from all over the world.

In the previous month, I have described only four archeological sites that support the great flood.  But from Alaska
to Florida, from Europe to Eastern Asia, from low elevations to high elevations, huge graveyards of millions of sea
animals, land animals, plants and human artifacts can be found supporting the idea of the great flood.

Next week the waters recede.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

This week let’s read about the Siwalik Hills of the Himalayas.  The Himalayas are the highest mountain range in
the world and home of Mount Everest, the world’s highest peak.

Durring the 19th century, the Siwalik Hills revealed fossil evidence of many forms of marine organisms such as fish
and clams.

In the book Earth in Upheavel, written by Immanuel Velikovsky, the following statement is made:

       The Siwalik Hills are so stocked with animals of so many and such varied species that the animal      
       world of today seems impoverished by comparison.  It looks as though all the animals have invaded
       the world at one time.

But how did these marine organisms get to these heights?  The Siwalik Hills are three thousand to four thousand
feet in height.

The flood of Noah’s time explains how the sea life got up to the mountain range.  As the flood waters 
receded, sea life was deposited on mountain levels.

Remember Genesis 7:20  The waters rose and covered the mountains to a depth of more than fifteen
cubits (22.5 feet).

This archaeological site supports the idea of a great flood killing many of the sea animals.  The hot
errupting springs on the ocean floor and the mighty waves killed and scrambled the sea life, deposit- 
ing them high on the Siwalik Hills of the Himalayas. 

Next week we will read about one more fossil site.  A site located in central Burma.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Welcome.  This week let’s read about the Tar Pits of La Brea located in the midst of Los Angeles, California.
These tar pits are over 450 miles long.  Over one million bone fossils have been dug out of the pits.  Also, 231
species of vertebrates (having a backbone), 159 species of plants and 231 species of invertebrates (no backbone,
starfish, snails, octopuses, etc.).  The animals in the tar pit include bears, saber-toothed tigers, giant wolves,
llamas, camels, horses, ground sloths (now extinct), bison and birds.

Because the tar pits are often covered by water, dirt and leaves, some archeologists believe these animals wander-
ed in, became trapped and died.

Although the saber-toothed tiger and camels are thought to have lived in this area before the great flood, the fossil
bones do not support the “wandering in” theory.

The majority of the skeletons were NOT found connected together as if they wandered in and sank. 
Instead, the fossil bones were found broken, mashed, contorted and scrambled together.  They reveal   
that the bones were ensnared by violent circumstances.

This archeological site supports the idea of a great flood, killing many plants and all of the animals.  
The mighty waves of the flood scrambled them, creating a fossil deposit of animals from all over the
world.

Next week, the Siwalik Hills of the Himalayas.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.

Let’s read some archeological evidence that Noah’s flood killed and scrambled plants and animals from 
around the world.

The Love Bone Bed, located twelve miles west of Gainesville, Florida, has become known as one of the richest
fossil sites in North America.  From 1974 to 1981, this site has revealed over one hundred species of vertebras
(having a back bone), and over one million fossils.  This site has yielded both marine and land animal fossils, such
as extinct sharks, whales, alligators, turtles, snakes, rodents, raccoons, four species of wolves, a saber-tooth cat,
an elephant, two species of rhinoceroses, seven kinds of horses, a llama and three species of camels.

If these animals were quickly covered by a volcanic eruption, there would not be marine animals mixed with land
animals.  Also, there wouldn’t be animals from all parts of the world buried in one site.

This archeological site supports the idea of a great flood killing many marine animals and all of the 
land animals.  The mighty waves of the flood scrambled the animals, creating a fossil deposit of 
animals from all over the world.

Next week we will read about the Tar Pits of La Brea.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
