With so much recent talk about Noah's Ark, you would think the find was brand new. But according to Noah's Ark Found on Mt. Ararat? and numerous other sources cited in the article, the discovery was made long ago by other explorers.
So why do I bring up Noah's Ark in a paranormal blog? Because paranormal means, "not scientifically explainable," and apparently anything that cannot be proven and explained using our five physical senses falls into the category of paranormal.
Except when belief is present. Ask anyone who believes in the Bible if they believe in Noah's Ark, and you will find that yes, it exists exactly where the Bible says it exists, on Mt. Ararat.
Now comes the time for proof – for some people. If Noah's Ark has proven to be as old as the Bible indicates it is – by carbon dating performed with the aid of science – will people finally believe that the Ark was built during the time of Noah?
But wait – just because the Ark was built during that time period, does that necessarily mean that the Ark belonged to Noah?
That's when faith enters the picture. Faith is not scientifically explainable. Belief is not scientifically explainable. But just because you can't see it, hear it, touch it, taste it, or smell it, does that mean that it doesn't exist?
Maybe we could all use a little faith. Have a Little Faith: A True Story.
