The finding of Noah's ark
Maybe you realized that you may not have yet heard of the finding of Noah's ark. A man named David Fasold read Donald W. Patton’s book and he had a desire to find the remains of Noah's ark. He worked on looking at writings of the ancient Chaldean historian Berosus and the translation of his writings into Greek. Mr. Fasold realized that Berosus had been mistranslated. He was able to pinpoint the location of the ark and he traveled to Turkey and found the site. He rented sophisticated metal-detection equipment and walked the remains of the ark and found hand-hewn, ancient iron fittings in a regular pattern of the structural design of a boat of exactly the dimensions of the ark, measured in Egyptian cubits. The ark is on Mount Judi in the mountains of the Ararat range, and just a few miles from Mount Ararat. The ancient artifact had been mostly underground, but an earthquake occurred in Turkey on the day that Israel became a nation in 1948, and the ancient ark emerged from the ground. David Fasold's book, The Ark of Noah, is available on Amazon.com. (used copies)
There is also video has been produced on the discovery of Noah's Ark.
In the video, Donald Patton is interviewed, and also David Fasold, a
friend of Donald Patton named Sam Windsor who is a marine architect, and
others. It's called "Discovery of Noah's Ark: The Best Evidence"
(available on e-bay)
Movie description This is not the sensationalized program aired on CBS in 1993 which depicted Noah's Ark protruding from the ice on Mt. Ararat. That program was later shown to have been based on falsified stories, myth, and bogus documents. This is the real Ark site. Noah's Ark has been found. Here is the evidence, including photographs and film footage, to prove it. With the aid of aerial reconnaissance, technologically advanced sensing devices, controlled chemical analysis and strict archeological field work, this program presents the evidence that suggests scientists have indeed found the final resting place of Noah's Ark as described in the Bible and the Book of Genesis.

does provide a general location for the landing
site, but not a specific mountain peak. It simply says, "The Ark came
to rest upon the MOUNTAINS of Ararat". The original indicates it came to
rest in the REGION of Urartu. (The area we call Ararat today)
For just 15 miles south-east in the region of Urartu, we
find the remains of the hull of a man-made ship, the dimensions which
correlate to those given in the Bible, made of Gopher wood, (Laminated
petrified carboniferous wood), with evidence that it was a floating
How Could Noah Build the
If one or two men today can erect a large house in just 12 weeks, how much more could three or four men do in a few years? Adam’s descendants were making complex musical instruments, forging metal, and building cities—their tools, machines, and techniques were not primitive!.
History has shown that technology can be lost. In Egypt, China, and the Americas the earlier dynasties built more impressive buildings or had finer art or better science! Many so-called modern inventions turn out to be re-inventions, like concrete, which was used by the Romans.
Even accounting for the possible loss of technology due to the Flood, early post-Flood civilizations display all the engineering know-how necessary for a project like Noah’s Ark. People sawing and drilling wood in Noah’s day, only a few centuries before the Egyptians were sawing and drilling granite, is very reasonable!
As God’s Son, Yeshua Messiah or the Lord Jesus Christ is like Noah’s Ark. Yeshua came to seek and to save the lost. Just as Noah and his family were saved by the Ark, rescued by God from the floodwaters, so anyone who believes in Yeshua Messiah, Jesus as Lord and Savior will be spared from the coming final judgment of mankind, rescued by God from the fire that will destroy the earth after the last days (2 Peter 3:7).

So we too have to go through a “doorway”
to be saved so that we won’t be eternally separated from God.

Donald W. Patten, a geographer by training and lifelong interest, was born on November 11, 1929, in Conrad, a small town on the high plains of Montana near Glacier National Park. He entered the University of Montana in 1947 and engaged upon a series of studies including ancient history, ancient literature, climatology, genetics, geography, geomorphology, mathematics and philosophy.
While absorbing humanistic viewpoints, he also began to read the Bible, and to reflect upon its claims. In 1948, he experienced conversion to Biblical Christianity, and through a coincidence, was given pulpit duties as a student at a small, rural community church in the village of Lolo. Following his conversion, this further experience in lay preaching and teaching was a most profound influence in his young manhood, coming in the midst of his studies.
Mr. Patten received a B.A, in Geography from the University of Washington in 1951, and an M.A. in Geography in 1962. Mr. Patten and his wife Lorraine have one daughter and six sons.
The biblical flood and ice epoch was conceived in 1960, and has been generated by his interests in various fields of geography, history and science.The Biblical Flood & The Ice Epoch
The author contends that, through the agency of astral principles, the Earth became engaged, or engulfed, in simultaneous gravitational upheavals and magnetic conflicts. There came with suddenness to our fragile, spiraling sphere, THE BIBLICAL FLOOD AND THE ICE EPOCH. Readers of this unique book will find a challenging and refreshing view of ancient catastrophism and its conclusion, Divine Creation, a subject of importance in this age of increasing intellectual rootlessness.
It is over and against the prevailing monopoly of uniformitarian thought (which proposes that oceans of time are necessary for anything and everything, both geologically and biologically) that Mr. Patten proposes his view of historical celestial crises, global catastrophes. Such catastrophes may explain many features about several planets. Such catastrophes, relative to the Earth-Moon system, explain the raising up of mountain ranges, sweeping across the face of the Earth in arcuate alignment, similar to the mountain patterns of the Moon.
This was achieved suddenly, and by tidal upheavals within the oceans (of centrifugally rotating lava) within the Earth's crust. Simultaneously, tidal upheavals engulfing the oceans raised tides of subcontinental dimensions on the Earth's crust, thus the historically recorded Deluge, or Flood.
There are several Scientifically organizations involved who gave their permission & their devotion to add their information about this subject on this site; to serve the Lord and to serve you as well! See at list below this site! As editor; Paul van Beek; I really appreciate the author Donald W. Patten & his daughter Judy Fenton for their cooperation to make this site to a reality!
This ministry Scientifically - Teaching’s web site, with
many of Biblical Scientifically studies is always freely available for
everyone! It is written on series of “Neutral Site’s"! As such, these detailed
teaching’s site’s cost a lot of precious time and financial commitment for
the authors and the publisher as well! Every study, that takes you for this
specific site a few hours scientifically study-material to read, and the pictures according the story, takes many, many
hours of work to write, to edit, to design, to modify, to format and
technically make available & maintain on the web server! That is the simple
reality of the situation!...Paul
