The endless search for Noah's Ark

A group of amateur archaeologists is claiming they have found remnants of Noah's Ark with 99.9% certainty. Read more about it here (Time) and here (skeptical article about the findings).

For decades now there has been a struggle amongst fundamentalist Christians who look for proof of their belief system in the field of archaeology. On the other hand, they are met with scorn by the skeptical, usually anti-religious beliefs of scientists in academia.

In the Time article, one of the reasons for skepticism given is that the findings of Noah's Ark were not given up for scientific evaluation and peer review. No doubt, the religious side would say there is a conspiracy amongst academia to ensure that fundamentalist findings in archaeology not be accepted legitimate.

UPDATE: Here is an interview with an Archaeologist about the subject on Fox News
