For millennia, scientists and Christians alike have been searching for evidence the story was in fact gospel. A team of evangelical Christian explorers found what they claim is “99.9 per cent” certainly evidence of Noah’s Ark beneath snow and volcanic debris on Mount Ararat in Turkey. Noah's Ark Ministries International, a Hong Kong-based documentary team, claim to have found wooden pieces from a structure which carbon dates back 4,800 years and was found around 13,000 feet above sea level. Yeung Wing-cheung, a filmmaker who helped discover the remains, said: "It's not 100 per cent that it is Noah's Ark but we think it is 99.9 per cent that this is it.”
