Hidden in plain sight, all these years.
The documentary filmmaker Cem Sertesen is participating in a
conference about Noah's Ark, being held in the context of Tourism
Week in Ağrı's Doğubayazıt district. Sertesen asserted that there
are traces of Noah's Ark within the borders of Telçeker village in
According to Sertesen, "Noah's Ark is the greatest legend of
human history (!), not just for Turks but for the whole world. It
is accepted that the ark is in eastern Turkey and that place is
Doğubayazıt district." Sertesen, who has been researching
Noah's Ark for 23 years, added that "İlhan Durupınar discovered
Noah's Ark, Ara Güler took the first photographs of it and in
1985 Dr. Salih Bayraktutan conducted the first scientific research."
Act now and you get a free Noah's rubber ducky.
Continuing, Sertesen said that "At the end of weeks of work, it
was proven through below-ground radar images that the ship's
body was there and the related report was presented to the
concerned Minister of that period. The last sentence of the
report was written in English: 'Yes, this is the body of a ship
and archeological studies should begin forthwith!'
Sertesen and Ağrı's Culture and Tourism Deputy Director
Erkan Kösedağ shared the book they co-wrote "Noah's Ark,
The Discovery of the Century" with students at the end of
Elon Musk working on an updated follow-on project.
