that you are encouraged and enlightened by what you have come across. Noah's Ark is such a
fascinating subject and it touches ALL of our lives. We are the progeny of Noah and his
family which was spared devastation from the flood. What an incredible journey they went

My compliments on an
absolutely oustanding web page! It is obvious you have put a lot of time and effort into a
very thoughtful end product of considerable depth.
Another Ark is destined to make world headlines in the near future. Perhaps divine
design and providence will see to it that both the Ark of the Covenant and Noah's Ark will
form a dual historical testimony of events past. -- JLC
Nice quaulity work.
The next time I update my page I'll put a link to your page. God bless -- DA
Keep up the good
work. God Bless -- BJ
One suggestion: Some
of your pictures (which, by the way, are great) take me a long time to load. I've found
that by lowering the quality of the graphical images it greatly reduces the time it takes
to load them without much degradation to online viewing. -- DA
Good suggestion. I have since tried to reduce the image size and
color count of most of the images on these pages. Is it better? -- MK
Matthew... Great page! ... I
recently met a gentleman ... (a West Point graduate and a lawyer who now splits his time
between Washington, DC and Petersburg, VA) who has some very interesting photos of what
the CIA has referred to as "the Ararat Anomaly" since 1949, when the first
photos of this thing appeared in intelligence circles and raised eyebrows in the
intelligence community. ... myself, and some other friends are lobbying for the release of
more recent pictures of the "anomaly" (many remain classified, but we are
hopeful that more will be released soon), since ... claims that he's been told (off the
record) that many more photos exist, and (this would make sense) that the nerwer photos
are crisper and more convincing than the 1949 photo... taken by a spy plane. We are also
trying to raise money for an expedition. ... the head of the American Turkish Counci, and
another gentleman ... (military attache to the Turkish Embassy here in Washington, DC).
... We are in touch with all the right people in the US and Turkey, and they assure us the
expedition can ber easily pulled off, but the general ... does not want to be in the
position of having convinced the Turks to undertake an expensive expedition if it turns
out to be a wild goose chase. All we need is $$. Maybe the aforementioned Turkish American
businessman will spring for it, but I must assume for the time being that he won't, so I'm
trying to get the word out that we have paved the way for an expedition. -- DM
Regarding your Noah's Ark
web page, Methuselah probably died BEFORE the flood. His name can be translated "When
he dies, (it) shall come", or "His death shall bring ..." -- SP
I think it is sad
that a person with as much education would waste his time and talent on such endeavors.
You do a disservice not only to yourself and family but ironically to the Christian faith
that you seem to think that you promote. The mistake that you make is that you try to
interpret the bible as literal fact instead of metphorically. When viewed as such they
become marvelous tales that speak to the heart and touch our spirit. When interpreted
literally they become hollow and lose their power -- how sad.
I would suggest that you start reading mythology of other cultures and see if you can
appreciate and understand those stories and what they say about the human
condition/spirit. I think you'll be surprised at the similarities you'll find. But please
don't waste my time ... promoting your personal beliefs with fairy tailes. -- JH
This is in reference to the Biblical Hailstone
which weighs a talent. -- MK
Excellent site. I am pleased to place a link to your location. You can find it
alphabetically listed in my subsection Creationism on the Internet. -- CA
Matthew, I just
previewed your web page and was very impressed with both the graphics and the content. ...
Congratulations on a job well done! God bless. -- LW
Here is a crazy idea for
where noah's ark is. There is no evidence what so ever to prove this small theory and I'm
sure you will laugh but just supose for a min that maybe just maybe Noah had more then one
ark. Now wait a minute ... If that wierd looking shape (not on Mnt. Arat) that some people
believe is the ark really is the main peice of noah's ark and the thing on Mnt. Arat could
be another boat of Noah's or vise versa? It's just a small thought that maybe He couldn't
fit all those animals in one boat so he took two or more. Or maybe he landed in Sibera in
that case no one will ever find it. Just thought you might want to think about that. Could
there be more then one? ........ probably not. -- RS
Intriguing thought! But when I look at the Bible I don't see
reference to two ships. In fact it infers ONE ship based on the language style. (Gen
6:14)"Make yourself an ark ..." -- MK
The 3D Ark looks great!
I'm having a little trouble navigating, but I think that is because I don't surf VMRL
I've put a link to your home page from The
Noahs Ark Project. -- DP
The 3D Noah's Ark works best with Netscape 3.0 Live 3D. The
"ark.wrl" file is compressed which makes it more compact for downloading. This
type of compression (gzip) may not work with other VRML browsers.
As for navigating, I had the same problems. Using the VRML browser several times should
soon make you a pro and you movements more comfortable. Enjoy! -- MK
Hey, knice job Matt.
Very interesting information. Pass it on to [others, they] will get a kick out the
tremendous research you did on this. It is really impressive. I didn't get to enjoy the
audio though, maybe next time. -- AK
I am a senior high
school student in upstate New York and have chosen to do a thesis on Noah's Ark for my
Citizens in Action class. Through my research on the web, I ran across your pages and
found a lot of interesting facts. I am very grateful for your time spent in compiling
those pages. As a Christian, I believe the Biblical account of the Flood to be true and
was interested in finding out more about the search for Noah's Ark, even though I know God
will reveal it to us in His timing if that be His will. -- TS
Matthew, these web
pages are facinating. At the moment I have seen the pages through Microsoft internet
explorer and can't see the 3-D images. I am anxious to see them. I have passed on the page
address to several people at work and they have also enjoyed looking at them and learning.
The work put into this is wonderful! Thanks for the entertainment and for putting even
more WORTHWHILE information out on the net. -- BS
I think your Noahs
Ark "assignment is great...I just couldnt see it cause I only have 6 megs I think.
Anyways I am only 16 but I am going to go to Mt.Ararat one day and try and go see the
ark.Hey I saw you laugh!:0)No,I am totally serious,But the thing I was wondering is that I
heard that you can only see some of it every 20 years or something becuase of the ice and
snow.Is that true?Anyways keep up th awesome work!!! -- N
I am organizing an expedition to Mt. Ararat in search of Noah's Ark. I am a university
professor, Christian and professional adventurer. I have lived, fought, learned and
survived in South Africa, Angola, Namibia (formerly Southwest Africa), Mexico, Portugal
and the Koreas.
We need archaeologists, survivalists, soldiers, photographers, videographers, ark
historians, strong Christians, Jews and Moslems with faith and belief in the Creator God
of the Old Testament, experienced mountain climbers, Kurdish linguists, international
businessmen interested in financing the mission or helping in organizing relations with
the Turkish government, legal advice, equipment outfitters ect.
Please post this message on your page if possible. Though I work in South Korea I am an
American. I have 22 weeks paid vacation per year and am completely serious about this.
Inspired by the documentary "In Search of Noah's Ark" I have dreamed of this
since I was a young man. I am 33 now and have the experience and financial means to think
about attacking this quest.
In the past, I have worked as a journalist in South Africa and produced a documentary
for former President Bush to help him raise 42 million dollars to build the George W. Bush
Presidential Library at Texas A&M University.
I am willing to relinquish operational control of the expedition to those better
qualified to lead it. I wish to serve as an organizer and facilitator. I wish only to
record the expedition in print and on video. -- ACL
Here is DM's email address (Dupreemax@wow.com).
His letter was very intriguing. Please let me know if you find
I would love to search Mount Ararat for Noah's Ark. However, I strongly feel that it
will require the "correct" group of people, the correct international alliance,
the correct temperatures and snowfall and most of all God will for it to be done.
Your desire is great. I will post it in the Visitor's Voice section; please keep me
updated as to your findings. I will place your email address along with your comments.
They will be able to "click" on your initials. --MK
Your Noah's Ark site
is quite impressive. I haven't toured everything, but your organizational details are very
good. With time I hope to read everything on it. -- SH
the info on your site. Looks great and will be a good ministry tool.God Bless You, -- BM
Hello Matt. In 1969
I had the opportunity to visit Mt. Ararat. I wish I had taken pictures! unfortunately we
did not see the ark, just a beautiful mountain. I enjoyed your web site tremendously! I
would love to visit Turkey again someday, the land filled with such history. I feel very
lucky in that I was able to spend 2 years in Turkey and wish I had seen more of the
mountain. keep up the great work with your web site! -- GW
I enjoyed your page; you put a
lot of time into it. My only comment is that I have a friend who has actually climbed Mt.
Ararat with the former astronaught Jim Irwin, and he believes the ark will not be found
because Noah needed wood to conduct his sacrifice. I have not heard of anyone describing
the Mt. Arrarat as being covered with trees, so where did Noah get the wood? Maybe the
ark? I would like to hear your comments.
In addition, if the ark is found, many will still not believe. Jesus said in his story
of Lazarus and the blind man that "Even if someone were raised from the dead, they
will still not believe." a rough paraphrase, but essentially there will still be
those who willinging will not believe there is a God. -- JC
Wood for sacrifices? Interesting. My thoughts ---- the Ark was very
big. Noah may have used SOME of the wood from the Ark, I don't think that he needed ALL of
it. (See the 3D Ark for relative sizes.) Also, here's a thought, the dove returned to the
Ark with an olive leaf, could this tree have provided some of the wood? Honestly, I don't
know but these are some thoughts. -- MK
