We have a treat for you today, dear reader, which we found at the website of Pat Robertson’s Christian News Network: Finding Noah’s Ark: Documentary Explores Ongoing Search for Biblical Vessel.
We know you can’t wait to learn about this one, so here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
Is Noah’s Ark still hiding somewhere today, waiting to be discovered? A documentary coming to theaters nationwide next week explores the ongoing search for the world’s most famous vessel and documents the dangers involved in the centuries-old quest.
Oooooooooooooooh — a documentary! We’re so excited! And we know you are too. Here’s more:
After the floodwaters subsided, the ark came to rest “upon the mountains of Ararat,” according to Genesis 8:4. Today, Mount Ararat is the tallest mountain in Turkey, with a towering, snow-capped summit and an elevation of nearly 17,000 feet. It consists of two dormant volcanic cones — Greater Ararat and Lesser Ararat.
Volcanoes — it sounds dangerous! Let’s read on:
Is the ark resting somewhere on Mount Ararat to this day? Many experts are convinced it is, and, on October 8, moviegoers around the country will have the chance to witness the latest attempts to locate the vessel. “Finding Noah: An Adventure of Faith” is a new film that will debut in movie theaters next week.
Wow — the 8th of October. That’s not very far away! [*Curmudgeon interrupts his blogging to mark his calendar*] Hey — the film has a website: Finding Noah. Oh, wait — this next excerpt is important:
More than 600 theaters are scheduled to show the film on October 8. The producers say their documentary will only be in theaters for one day.
Only one day? Aaaargh!! There will be lines around the block, and you’ll have to go early to be assured of getting in. The news continues:
“Shot in never-before filmed locations and in the harshest of conditions, this unprecedented feature-length documentary shows just how far men are willing to go to discover the truth,” explains the film’s website. “Narrated by Academy Award nominee Gary Sinise, ‘Finding Noah’ is more than a quest for answers, it is a testament of the human spirit, where belief and the need for exploration transcend risk and limitation.”
Gary Sinise? He was in Apollo 13. This thing keeps getting better and better. Uh oh … [*Curmudgeon takes another break to make a quick run to the bathroom*] Okay, we’re back. Here’s one more excerpt:
Biblical scholars have long wondered if Noah’s Ark has survived the thousands of years since the Great Flood. Dr. John Morris, a leading biblical creationist, points out that the Bible does not mention anything about the ark’s survival. However, he believes that “a well-documented and scientifically viable discovery would be quite newsworthy, and it is exciting to consider how it might impact world culture.”
There you are, dear reader. That’s the news for today — perhaps it’s the biggest news of the year! We know what you’ll all be doing on 08 October.
