Pharaoh's drowned army - arqueological proof found?

    Here's something we might want to consider reading:

    While I would love to believe that this is an authentic archeological find, I become highly suspicious when one person tends to find lots of high profile artifacts one after another. I think it's almost like that ex-Mormon guy who faked tons of documents about the Mormon history and sold them to the Mormon church. He just got greedier and greedier and couldn't stop himself.

    Let it first be said that I am not an expert in any capacity in the field of archaeology. However, I've watched lots of Discovery Channel and History Channel. Things like Jacques Cousteau, exploring the wreckage of the Titanic, etc. Out of all those deep sea dives I've watched, one thing stands out in my memory: they always had to bring stuff to the surface and clean it. Whether it was green scaling on copper plates, or rust on steel and iron, or whatever, nothing that stays underwater for years stays shiny and pristine. Yet in that picture you posted, it looks like the metal (brass?) is reflecting the underwater searchlights. There are 3 distinct glints of shiny metal around the rim of that supposed chariot wheel. After 30+ centuries? Below, the caption says "GILDED CHARIOT WHEEL". I'm no expert, but I don't think even gold is thay shiny after such a prolonged immersion in saltwater. I'm not buying it.

    I am with Allalong on this one.

    After 3 500 + years there would not be any human bones lying scattered on the sea floor. As on the Titanic - there was not one piece of organic matter left that went down with the ship (after only 70 years)

    Sea termites and other critters had eaten it all.

    More lies from the fundies.

    Another claim is that the British sea charts show a dead straight sand bank going across the bottom of the Red Sea where Israel is supposed to have crossed. Can somebody post the chart?

    In fact the conditions mentioned in Genesis fit with the North East delta of the Nile.

    And the "Exodus" was composed of many such waves of migrations by bronze age tribes.

    This guy also claims to have found the ark of the covenant, Noah's ark and other assorted Bible proofs. He is an amateur archaeologist-which is what any of us is with a shovel if we want to claim it for ourselves. He is dead now, his widow and former business associates carry on his work.

    Wyatt was a Seventh Day Adventist and claimed that angels told him he would be revealing the Ark of the Covenant at the end times-or when the world accepts the mark of the beast. Which they claim is the world proclamation of Sunday as the Sabbath (as a law) and the churches accepting it.

    JWs are related (though they will usually vigorously deny the connection) to adventists in their origins.

    Interestingly, my mom sent an article on this very subject to me a few days ago. Can't tell her ANYTHING about the org, but she will believe things online about Wyatt and will accept the things he said as the things he said. Wonder why she didn't give him as much of the benefit of the doubt as she did the JWS?

    Assuming the discovery to be legitimate, it still is not proof of the Red Sea parting and destroying the "six hundred chosen chariots and all the other chariots of Egypt and warriors". Ship wreck has drowned multitudes of people in the Red Sea and quite likely some had chariots on board. There are many explainations of where they came from.

    Thanks Abishai for the info, I always enjoy info that proves the Bible. I never doubted though.

    I don't think Wyatt is a man to be trusted after he went from being a male nurse to being an archaeologist who "discovered" the ark of Noah (including the anchor stones), the original stones of the ten commandments, the ark of the covenent, Sodom and Gomorah etc it sounds to good to be true and nobody in science and archaeology takes him seriously. I believe he made up all these stories to acquire fame, he is nothing but a conman.

    Dear Abishai,

    WELCOME to the forum!!! What a great find!! It certainly makes sence to me, as I am a firm believer in the biblical account. Thanks for sharing!!

    "Ron Wyatt entered a cave near Jerusalem in January 1982, and saw the unique blood of Jesus on the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant. Jesus' blood "...anoint[ed] the Most Holy" Daniel 9:24."

    How come it has not been published worldwide that the blood of Jesus has actually been found? I don't recall ever having seen that news on nationwide television - but there must be some worldwide conspiracy going on to surpress it, must be the Free Masons in connection with the CIA and British Queen.

    I ask again: Why is the following not common knowledge? Why are these certain facts surpressed? What is the CIA hiding?

    The Real Noah's Ark!
    Top Points to Consider

    1. It is in the shape of a boat, with a pointed bow and rounded stern.

    2. Exact length as noted in biblical description, 515 feet or 300 Egyptian cubits. (Egyptian not Hebrew cubit would have been known to Moses who studied in Egypt then wrote Genesis.)

    3. It rests on a mountain in Eastern Turkey, matching the biblical account, "The ark rested . . . upon the mountains of Ararat" Genesis 8:4. (Ararat being the name of the ancient country Urartu which covered this region.)

    4. Contains petrified wood, as proven by lab analysis.

    5. Contains high-tech metal alloy fittings, as proven by separate lab analyses paid for by Ron Wyatt, then performed later by Kevin Fisher of this web site. Aluminum metal and titanium metal was found in the fittings which are MAN-MADE metals!

    6. Vertical rib timbers on its sides, comprising the skeletal superstructure of a boat. Regular patterns of horizontal and vertical deck support beams are also seen on the deck of the ark.

    7. Occupied ancient village at the ark site at 6,500 ft. elevation matching Flavius Josephus' statement "Its remains are shown there by the inhabitants to this day."

    8. Dr. Bill Shea, archaeologist found an ancient pottery sherd within 20 yards of the ark which has a carving on it that depicts a bird, a fish, and a man with a hammer wearing a headdress that has the name "Noah" on it. In ancient times these items were created by the locals in the village to sell to visitors of the ark. The ark was a tourist attraction in ancient times and today.

    9. Recognized by Turkish Government as Noah's Ark National Park and a National Treasure. Official notice of its discovery appeared in the largest Turkish newspaper in 1987.

    10. Visitors' center built by the government to accommodate tourists further confirms the importance of the site.

    11. Huge anchor stones were found near the ark and in the village Kazan, 15 miles away, which hung off the rear of the ark to steady its ride.

    12. The ark rests upon Cesnakidag (or Cudi Dagi) Mountain, which is translated as "Doomsday" Mountain.

    13. Dr. Salih Bayraktutan of Ataturk University stated, "It is a man made structure, and for sure it's Noah's Ark" Common Sense. This same article also states "The site is immediately below the mountain of Al Judi, named in the Qur'an as the resting place of the Ark." Houd Sura 11:44

    14. Radar scans show a regular pattern of timbers inside the ark formation, revealing keels, keelsons, gunnels, bulkheads, animal chambers, ramp system, door in right front, two large barrels in the front 14' x 24', and an open center area for air flow to all three levels
