Genesis 6:9 to 9:28.
Robert Ballad, the underwater archaeologist who found the missing Titanic in 1985, has been trying to prove the story of Noah’s Ark and the Biblical Flood. He has been searching the Black Sea near Turkey for proof of this catastrophic event. He and his team found an ancient shoreline approximately 400 feet below the surface, which supports the story of the Great Flood. Carbon-dated seashells from that area date back to around 5,000 B.C., which is around the time of Noah’s journey.
Ballard doesn’t think that he will find Noah’s ark. The oldest shipwreck found thus far in the area was from around 500 B.C. and was wooden. A crew member’s femur and molar were spotted in the wreckage.
For a Christian, accepting Biblical principles and stories without having to have proof is the key to faith. The Bible reminds us that faith is the belief in things not seen. So, this discovery doesn’t really affect Christians. However, it does give us something to use when non-believers are questioning the Bible and its contents.
