I had passed on this story last week because it seems like a silly celebrity story where we were supposed to pooh-pooh the beauty temporarily ruined by her ridiculous bad judgment. I wasn’t amused. It wasn’t funny. But, this piece I liked because it talked about WHY people still search for the Ark.
“Baywatch” star Donna D’Errico was recently injured on a mountain in Turkey while on a quest to find Noah’s Ark. The former model and actress was on Mount Ararat with a documentary film crew when she slipped in a rockslide; a colleague caught her before she fell off a cliff.
Scientists have used satellites, computers, and powerful cameras to pinpoint the Ark’s exact location on Mt. Ararat.” Nearly 40 years later, that evidence remains elusive.
Like those before her, D’Errico insists that her quest is based in science as much as personal faith. True believers have long used science and powerful technology in their search for Noah’s Ark, including satellite imaging and powerful cameras. She was quoted in The Daily Mail as saying that she had studied the reports of Noah’s Ark extensively, and she “knows where the sightings have been. According to my research, the ark lays broken into at least two, but most likely three, pieces.”

It didn’t exist, and it won’t be found. You are free to spend your money and efforts, AND risk your life, on wild goose chases if you wish.
