I think it was a real vessel, just as the Flood was a real event; I have no opinion about whether it still exists or not, or if it's important to know that or not. Smile

I agree. It would be interesting if it were found, but I've never given it much thought.

I picked "some combo." For me, it's option 2 (I don't think it still exists) and 8 (I don't think it matters).

I believe it was real, but I don't think it Is around anymore.

Years ago, I read some stuff and watched a fascinating documentary about the search for the Ark...it was very plausible and very fascinating.

I have absolutely no problem believing it is over there somewhere, and if I had to guess, I'd say where they say it is is not where it is (based on those things I read and watched).

But, I tend to believe that God is keeping it hidden, because to find it would be another temptation to worship something other than God...I could see it becoming a shrine, etc.

However, I really don't think it has any bearing on anything that really matters.


Blessings,
Lisa R.

I believe it existed. If it does great if not great. I figure if God wanted it found we would know where it is.

Sigh...I've just noticed the tense of these posts and re-read #6. I see nobody chose that one, but is this another of those things where even Christians believe it was not a real thing?

I'm just so naive.

I just added that option, because we have such a wide diversity of opinion in the forum about whether to take the Bible as word for word or not. And there are unbelieving visitors from time to time.

It isn't that I know that some people don't believe it was true...it was that I was trying to allow for a Bell Curve of responses.

I believe it was a real vessel and that pieces of it, at least, still exist somewhere. It may or may not be in the area/s that have been searched. Like all of biblical archeology, it would be s fascinating find.

If it were found, I'd be skeptical with most others. Too many wrong assumptions are made about things and ideas and evidence changes. It would still be very interesting. Smile

I voted 'something else'...

1. I believe that a vessel existed that is consistent with the Biblical account of these events.

2. I think it's highly unlikely that there are any bits of it still around in recognizable form, and if there are, I don't think we would have a clear idea where to look from the Bible alone.

3. Aside from having confidence that the Bible is conveying the truth to us, I don't think present day ideas about Noah's ark matter very much.
