We have no way of knowing if Noah's ark still exists today. The Bible, however, does state that Noah did build a very large vessel many years ago according to God's commands (Genesis 6, 7 and 8). The Bible mentions that the ark rested on the "mountains of Ararat." Many believe that those mountains are found today in extreme northeast Turkey. In fact, there is a high peak in that range named "Ararat.”

Many expeditions have taken place in those mountains and the glaciers that are there. Many people claim they have pieces of wood from the ark or that they have seen the ark itself. While it is possible that some of these claims are true, to date, there remains doubt about the proof of such a discovery.

There are many Web sites that show the history of expeditions and photographs. Even if the scientific community never accepts proof of such a discovery (or if the wood of the ark has decayed and there is no longer an ark to be discovered), that in no way disproves the biblical account. However, the verified discovery of such a vessel in the high mountains of Ararat would give more indisputable proof of the authenticity of the Bible.
