Is it really Noah's Ark?

Many Christians and Jews, myself included, believe there really was a guy named Noah who put his family and some animals on an arc (read barge) and floated out a flood. We further believe that this arc came to rest somewhere in the Ararat mountains. Many believe it must have landed on Mt. Ararat itself while others, and that includes me, believe it may have landed on that particular peak or any other in the set generally called the "Ararat Mountains" at the time. Go have a look at the pictures in this story about some new satellite photos of a spot on Mt. Ararat in Turkey. I am not sure I am convinced but until the Turkish government lets scientists go to the spot we will not know for sure if that is petrified wood or just an interestingly shaped outcrop of mountain.

All religion aside, isn't high definition satellite photography amazing?
