For the record I believe that any middle eastern flood was local not world wide. Something happened somewhere, sometime. Almost any culture worth its salt has some kind of flood legend. Even the Greeks.
Another of those "we've found the ark" stories. Even a former astronaut went to Turkey years ago.
Let me get this straight. That great big boat was floating around for almost a year and it only got to Turkey?
The world has been flooded for months. It's a giant mud flat. No trees for miles for cooking, keeping warm, shelter. You going to let that great pile of seasoned wood just sit there and rot? Recyle, recycle, recyle.
