True or False: Noah's Ark Has Been Found

It's easy to be a skeptic when it comes to anything dealing with biblical history, only because there are so many conflicting viewpoints. Although, as a great lover of history and archaeology I should probably have more of an open mind, and I think I do, but I'm not sure I believe Noah's Ark has been found.

In April 2010, the internet went crazy with reports that the infamous Noah's Ark had been found in Turkey on Mount Agri. If you didn't get a chance to see or read any of the reports, I found this video that describes why archaeologists believed it to be Noah's Ark and what was found inside that may have solidified their claims.

As the video will show, the boat is lodged in ice at a 4000 meter altitude in Mount Agri. This gives us a pretty good idea as to how much the geographical landscapes have changed in that particular area.

According to the Bible, Noah's ark landed on the mountains of Ararat. This does not refer to any specific mountain or peak, but rather a mountain range within the region of Ararat, which was the name of an ancient proto-Armenian kingdom also known as Urartu.
