For its his­tor­i­cal claims the fi rst eleven chap­ters of Gen­e­sis are pos­si­bly the most attacked sec­tion of the entire Bible, and the sto­ry deemed most implau­si­ble, with­out a doubt, is the sto­ry of Noah?s Ark. That there could be such a great flood, a ship of 450 – 500 feet in length con­tain­ing pairs of every air-breath­ing ani­mal in the land, and only eight sur­vivors, is usu­al­ly treat­ed by most crit­ics as the equiv­a­lent of a nurs­ery tale for chil­dren. Hence, it?s no secret that the­o­log­i­cal lib­er­als view the Bib­li­cal sto­ry of Noah?s Ark as ?the impos­si­ble voyage,?1 and we sus­pect, for many evan­gel­i­cals, the search for Noah?s Ark con­sti­tutes ?the impos­si­ble quest.?2

Though?evangelicals ful­ly believe that the Flood was a his­tor­i­cal event, the attempt to dis­cov­er the Ark?s remains stretch­es creduli­ty. The?whole issue of the search for Noah?s Ark is not helped by the fact that its ?dis­cov­ery? is fre­quent­ly announced by a press that is not only gullible, but also enables the spread of sen­sa­tion­al sto­ries by indulging those look­ing for a moment of pub­lic­i­ty.
