Me too. I don't have any confidence that the Ark is on top of the highest
free standing mountain in the world. What a cruel hoax for God to drop
Noah off at 17,000 feet (actually Mt Ararat is a late Tertiary volcanic
cone, and probably didn't even exist when Noah left the "Mountains of
Ararat.") Before there even were any Armenians!
