In Genesis chapter eight, verse four, it says that the Ark of Noah landed on the mountain of Ararat. Today the mountains of Ararat contains what is called Lesser Ararat, which peaks around 12,000 feet, and Greater Ararat which reaches heights of nearly 17,000 feet. These mountains that border Turkey and Iran has long been known to be monitored and run by what some call the most dangerous terrorist group in the world, the PKK (Kurdistan Workers Party). Furthermore, the difficult terrain and harsh weather makes Mount Ararat one of the most difficult mountains to expedite in the world. But this didn’t stop our guest, a modern day Indiana Jones, Dr. Aaron Judkins, from going on the most dangerous and extensive search for Noah’s Ark in known history.
There are several stories of people who claim to have seen what can only be understood to be Noah’s Ark on the highest points of Greater Ararat. The eye witness accounts all share a similar account of a large wooden craft, broken into two pieces preserved in a large layer of ice. This, along with several of the flood myths from all around the world make for an interesting case that the story of Noah’s Ark is true and that we might be on the brink of finding irrefutable evidence for it. While Dr. Aaron Judkins was not able to reveal to us whether or not he found Noah’s Ark due to the fact that a major documentary was filmed in the process, he did speculate that such a finding would be monumental for the Christian worldview and a blow to the skeptics and naysayers who simply label such accounts as pure fiction.
As an off shoot to the impact the findings would have in the world, the fascinating part of Dr. Aaron Judkins is that he shares the views often expressed on Canary Cry Radio about the Genesis 6 Nephilim paradigm. In this conversation, we talk about those issues and how he believes the Nephilim paradigm will also become an even more talked about topic once the existence of Noah’s Ark is confirmed.
