Samples taken from the area thought to be Noah’s Ark in Agri were brought to the Istanbul Technical University Laboratory. After the results, it can be determined whether there are traces of Noah’s Ark in the area or not.
While Noah’s Ark, which took place in the flood described in the holy books, has been sought for centuries, it is believed to be on Mount Ararat. The research team established by Agri Ibrahim Cecen University (AİCU) and Istanbul Technical University (ITU) started work in the area thought to be Noah’s Ark ruins about 2 months ago.
Nearly 30 rock and soil samples collected from the study area, which was carried out with special permissions under the coordination of the Governor’s Office, were brought from Agri to Istanbul, to the laboratory of the university, to be investigated. Regarding the process studied in different disciplines, ITU Vice Rector and Dean of Mining Faculty Prof. Dr. Mustafa Kumral and Head of ITU Geological Engineering Department Prof. Dr. Emin Ciftci made statements.
After the laboratory studies, which are expected to last about 1 month, it can be determined whether there are traces of Noah’s Ark or not.
‘DO THE DIFFERENCES SIGN UP NOAH’S ARK?
ITU Vice Rector and Dean of Mining Faculty Prof. Dr. Mustafa Kumral said, “Our aim is to wonder if the structure here is different from the general geological structure around, or not? To reveal this. Macro and micro observations will be made. These will be subjected to chemical analyzes. In these chemical analyzes, that structure has a chemistry that is appropriate with the general mineralogy and the geology of that region. Isn’t there a difference? Will this difference point to Noah’s Ark?
