Noah’s Ark, studies and discoveries. A-Z index of Cognitio.

In the biblical account, Noah’s ark is a great craft built on divine guidance by to escape the  Great Flood in order to escape the human species and other living beings. An analogous tale, in the context of the Gilgamesh epic, is rooted in Mesopotamian mythology. Genesis, Chapter 6, 14 states that the Ark was made of “resinous wood”. The Bible reports that the ark measured 300 cubits in length. In antiquity cubits of different sizes were used, but still very similar; Most literal studios agree that the boat has an approximate length of 137 meters long, in any case, longer than any wooden boat that has ever been historically built until the end of the 1800s. In religious cultures. The story of Noah and the Ark was the subject of numerous enrichment in the late Jewish rabbinical literature. God had revealed to Noah how to build the Ark even by making known to him what measures certain tree types, which were also predetermined and planted by him, would have reached the time necessary in fact could not have forged the axes of such measures and therefore They were of different measures corresponding to those of the axes. The writers at the beginning of the Christian era came up with very elaborate interpretations of the history of the ark. Augustine of Hippo (354-430) in the City of God proves that the proportions of the ark correspond to those of the human body, in turn, the body of Christ and therefore of the Church. The identification of the ark with the church can also be found in the Anglican rite of baptism, which is to ask God “who in his great pity saved Noah” to receive in the bosom of the Church by baptizing. 

Noah (Nūḥ) is one of the five major prophets of Islam, and his story generally serves to illustrate the fate of those who refuse to listen to the divine Word. References to the Prophet are widespread through the Koran, but are particularly frequent in Sura 11, entitled Hūd, verses 27 to 51. Unlike the Jewish tradition, which uses to describe the arc vague terms that can translate as “box” or ” Chest, “verse 29, verse 15, speaks of safīna, that is, in a common boat, and sura 54, verse 13, evokes by its” an object of planks and nails “. In the various Mesopotamians mythologies, from Sumerian to Neo-Assira, we speak of a human king or prince named Zīūsūra who saved himself on an Arch from a Deluge that destroyed the Sumerian country. The practice of research into possible archaeological remains is widely considered pseudo-scientific, more specifically pseudo-archaeology. The last significant discovery, historically documented and that of a presumed finding given on April 27, 2010, by a joint Turkish and Hong Kong expedition, to which members of “Noah’s Ark Ministries International” participated. The expedition announced that it had discovered on the Ararat an unusual cave with wooden walls at an altitude that no human settlements existed and that it had dated wood (through carbon test 14) to 4,800 years does. Team spokeswoman Yeung Wing-Cheung told the press that it is not 100% that it is the Ark, but 99.9% think yes.

Quote by Alessandro Brizzi.

Noah’s story is probably inspired by that of the Anunnaki, but what if the legendary ark had been a Sumerian spaceship?  In the city of Shuruppak in southern Iraq, during the excavations in 1931, sedimentary evidence of a flood occurred in 2900 BC, similar to the ark of the famous patriarch. Based on the royal list Sumerica king Ziusudra was the last Sumerian emperor before the great flood on the planet.All this could show that the universal flood written in the bible really happened. So Noah’s ark would not have Jewish origins, the Sumerian texts tell of a universal flood much older than the patriarch, but rather the last antediluvian emperor who survived with his family thanks to a boat. Coincidence or something else, or perhaps the Bible has copied and was based on a much more ancient story? In the Bible we know that the universal deluge occurred as a punishment for the sins of man. But this is a properly religious-theological thought. In the Sumerian one the great flood was not the work of nature but of the God Enlil tired of the noise caused by man. “Noah’s Ark was a spaceship” Enlil wanted to make man disappear forever, but Enki (God of Sumerian Mythology) said that the human being was preserved. 

Enki warns the emperor by making him build an ark, but some historians claim that it was a spaceship to escape the universal flood, and that he had brought it into orbit. The affinities between the legend of the bible and the Sumerian one can not be a mere coincidence. Or Noah’s story is inspired by that of an Anunnaki deity determined to destroy the hybrid creatures that lived on Earth.  Based on the theory of ancient astronauts, the human race was either enhanced or genetically created by superior entities “UFOs” in the distant past.  Is this perhaps the missing link in Darwin’s theory of evolution? Does the presence of aliens on earth allow the differences between religion and science to help? Maybe that’s why in Iraq in 2002 the national museum was sacked by American soldiers, perhaps to obscure a shocking truth. Returning to the central theme, in all cultures of the past based on their stories: floods, floods were generated by deities because dissatisfied with the human race. Both in the bible and in the Sumerian one the deluge was the work of the gods. What matters is accepting the idea that man is not the only being in the universe … and understanding that we are not alone.
