The new Hollywood blockbuster “Noah” has created a tremendous amount of interest in the story of Noah’s Ark. Traditionally, most people have regarded it as just a cute Bible story to tell children. But could it be real? Is there solid evidence that Noah’s Ark actually existed? If there is real evidence, would you believe it? What you are about to see is absolutely stunning. In fact, some of the things that you are about to see are so shocking that many people will simply refuse to accept them. Later in this article, you are going to see video footage of the physical remains of Noah’s Ark. This discovery has been known about for quite some time, but the mainstream media has mostly ignored it. A boat-shaped object that is the exact length that the Ark should be and the exact width the Ark should be has been found on the mountains of Ararat. Ground penetrating radar shows us how the Ark was laid out, and scientific tests have been conducted on wood and metal extracted from the gigantic buried boat. If you have never heard about any of this before, prepare to be blown away. The following are 14 cold, hard facts about Noah’s Ark that you probably do not know…
#1 The Ark was about 500 feet long. That would make it approximately the size of a World War II aircraft carrier.
#2 It has been estimated that the Ark had an internal volume of more than 1.5 million cubic feet.
#3 According to brand new research conducted by scientists the University of Leicester, Noah’s Ark could have carried at least 70,000 animals without sinking…
Noah’s Ark would have floated even with two of every animal in the world packed inside, scientists have calculated.
Although researchers are unsure if all the creatures could have squeezed into the huge boat, they are confident it would have handled the weight of 70,000 creatures without sinking.
#4 Of course the Ark would not have needed to hold 70,000 animals. One conservative estimate puts the number of animals on the Ark at about 16,000. This would have allowed for more than enough room for food, supplies and lots of empty space.
#5 We have discovered at least 250 different ancient cultures that have a story of a massive, cataclysmic flood. Most of those stories have striking similarities to the Genesis account.
#6 If there really was a global flood, we would expect to find billions of dead things laid down in rock layers all over the globe. And that is precisely what we find.
#7 We know where Noah’s Ark is today. Yes, you read that correctly. As you can see from the YouTube video posted below, the remains of Noah’s Ark have been discovered on “the mountains of Ararat” in Turkey. This video footage is absolutely stunning…
#8 The remains of the Ark are just as long and just as wide as the Bible says they should be.
#9 Wood from the Ark has been tested, and the tests show that it does contain organic carbon. That means that the fossilized wood that was discovered was once living matter.
#10 Along with wood, metal was also used in the construction of the Ark. Iron fittings and aluminum have both been discovered at the remains of the Ark.
#11 Petrified animal dung, a petrified antler and and an ancient piece of cat hair have also been retrieved from the remains of the Ark.
#12 Historical records confirm that people have believed that this is the correct resting place of the Ark for a very, very long time…
The Gilgamesh Epic (650 BC) gives Mt. Nisir as the landing place of the Ark. The local name for the town where the Ark was found is Nasar.
The annals of Ashurnasurpal II of Assyria (833-859 BC) places it south of the Zab river (correct).
Theophilus of Antioch (115-185 AD) said the Ark could be seen in his day in the Arabian mountains. Later Church Fathers also mention the Ark as late as the mid 7th century.
In the 13th century, Willam, a traveler, stated for the first time that Mt. Masis was the Ark location (present-day Mt. Ararat).
Ptolemy’s Geographia (1548) mentions the mountains of Armenia as the place of landing. So does the traveler Nicolas de Nicolay (1558).
#13 A village near the remains of the Ark is known as “the Village of Eight”, and a nearby valley is known as “the Valley of the Eight”. There were eight survivors on the Ark.
#14 The site is now known as “the National Park of Noah’s Ark” and it has previously been officially recognized by the Turkish government.
When I was young, I desperately hoped that Noah’s Ark would be found someday, but I doubted that it would ever happen.
Well, it has happened.
We have found Noah’s Ark.
It is not just a story for little children.
So will you believe the evidence, or will you just dismiss it because it does not fit with your current worldview?

In the new Hollywood blockbuster “Noah”, the Creator of this world is portrayed as an evil homicidal maniac that utterly hates humanity, and the Serpent is portrayed as the one holding the secret that will restore the “divine spark” to humanity. Unfortunately, most Christians (even those that have reviewed this film negatively) have totally missed the Luciferian Gnostic themes that are being openly promoted by this film. I have previously written about how “Noah” turns the fallen angels into good guys that actually help Noah build the Ark, but the occult themes in this movie go much deeper than that. Director Darren Aronofsky has expertly woven elements of Luciferianism, Gnosticism and even from the Kabbalah throughout the film. Over the years, hundreds of millions of people all over the world that watch this movie will be exposed to the Luciferian gospel without even realizing it.
There are many different strands of Gnosticism, but in the version that I call “Luciferian Gnosticism”, the Creator of this world is an evil being known as “the Demiurge” and the Serpent is a good being that possesses the secret knowledge (“gnosis”) that will help humanity rediscover the “divine spark” that already resides inside of them. The following is how Wikipedia describes how the Gnostics tend to view God…
Gnosticism presents a distinction between the highest, unknowable God and the demiurgic “creator” of the material. Several systems of Gnostic thought present the Demiurge as antagonistic to the will of the Supreme Being: his act of creation occurs in unconscious semblance of the divine model, and thus is fundamentally flawed, or else is formed with the malevolent intention of entrapping aspects of the divine in materiality. Thus, in such systems, the Demiurge acts as a solution to (or, at least possibly, the problem or cause that gives rise to) the problem of evil.
In the most radical form of Christian Gnosticism, the Demiurge is the “jealous God” of the Old Testament.
And this is precisely how the God of the Bible is portrayed in “Noah” as Dr. Brian Mattson recently pointed out…
Except that when Gnostics speak about “The Creator” they are not talking about God. Oh, here in an affluent world living off the fruits of Christendom the term “Creator” generally denotes the true and living God. But here’s a little “Gnosticism 101” for you: the Creator of the material world is an ignorant, arrogant, jealous, exclusive, violent, low-level, bastard son of a low level deity. He’s responsible for creating the “unspiritual” world of flesh and matter, and he himself is so ignorant of the spiritual world he fancies himself the “only God” and demands absolute obedience. They generally call him “Yahweh.” Or other names, too (Ialdabaoth, for example).
This Creator tries to keep Adam and Eve from the true knowledge of the divine and, when they disobey, flies into a rage and boots them from the garden.
In other words, in case you’re losing the plot here: The serpent was right all along. This “god,” “The Creator,” whom they are worshiping is withholding something from them that the serpent will provide: divinity itself.
In “Noah”, essentially the Creator is the bad guy and the serpent is the good guy, just like in hardcore Gnosticism.
Another way that Gnosticism manifests itself in the film is that Adam and Eve are portrayed as bright, shiny, luminescent beings before the Fall. It is only after the Fall that they take on flesh and bone.
This is also pure Gnosticism. In the second century AD, Irenaeus of Lyon wrote the following regarding what one particular group of Gnostics believed…
“Adam and Eve formerly had light, luminous, and so to speak spiritual bodies, as they had been fashioned. But when they came here, the bodies became dark, fat, and idle.”
We can also find this doctrine in Kabbalism according to Dr. Mattson…
It occurred to me that a mystical tradition more closely related to Judaism, called Kabbalah (which the singer Madonna made popular a decade ago or so), surely would have held a similar view, since it is essentially a form of Jewish Gnosticism. I dusted off (No, really: I had to dust it) my copy of Adolphe Franck’s 19th century work, The Kabbalah, and quickly confirmed my suspicions:
“Before they were beguiled by the subtleness of the serpent, Adam and Eve were not only exempt from the need of a body, but did not even have a body—that is to say, they were not of the earth.”
And guess what? Dr. Mattson also pointed out that Aronofsky’s very first feature film was all about the Kabbalah…
I discovered what Darren Aronofsky’s first feature film was: Pi. Want to know its subject matter? Do you? Are you sure?
If you think that’s a coincidence, you may want a loved one to schedule you a brain scan.
When I first read that, I was absolutely stunned.
A movie that is openly promoting Gnosticism and Kabbalism has been pawned off to Christians as a “Biblical movie”, and millions of them are falling for it hook, line and sinker.
In Gnosticism, humanity has a dual nature. The physical part comes from the evil Creator, but there is also a good part that comes from the “true God”. According to Gnostic belief, the evil Creator is constantly trying to keep humanity from discovering the “divine spark” that supposedly resides within us all. The following is a brief summary of how the Gnostics view humanity…
Human nature mirrors the duality found in the world: in part it was made by the false creator God and in part it consists of the light of the True God. Humankind contains a perishable physical and psychic component, as well as a spiritual component which is a fragment of the divine essence. This latter part is often symbolically referred to as the “divine spark”. The recognition of this dual nature of the world and of the human being has earned the Gnostic tradition the epithet of “dualist”.
Humans are generally ignorant of the divine spark resident within them. This ignorance is fostered in human nature by the influence of the false creator and his Archons, who together are intent upon keeping men and women ignorant of their true nature and destiny. Anything that causes us to remain attached to earthly things serves to keep us in enslavement to these lower cosmic rulers. Death releases the divine spark from its lowly prison, but if there has not been a substantial work of Gnosis undertaken by the soul prior to death, it becomes likely that the divine spark will be hurled back into, and then re-embodied within, the pangs and slavery of the physical world.
Not all humans are spiritual (pneumatics) and thus ready for Gnosis and liberation. Some are earthbound and materialistic beings (hyletics), who recognize only the physical reality. Others live largely in their psyche (psychics). Such people usually mistake the Demiurge for the True God and have little or no awareness of the spiritual world beyond matter and mind.
In Gnosticism, secret knowledge (“gnosis”) is the key to “liberation” and “enlightenment”.
And who provides that secret knowledge?
It comes from the Serpent. He was trying to provide that secret knowledge about the divine spark to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, and he has supposedly been doing that ever since.
In “Noah”, this secret knowledge is represented by the serpent skin that shows up throughout the film. In the movie, this serpent skin was supposedly shed by the Serpent in the Garden of Eden. Here is another excerpt from Dr. Brian Mattson’s recent article…
The action opens when Lamech is about to bless his son, Noah. Lamech, rather strangely for a patriarch of a family that follows God, takes out a sacred relic, the skin of the serpent from the Garden of Eden. He wraps it around his arm, stretches out his hand to touch his son—except, just then, a band of marauders interrupts them and the ceremony isn’t completed. Lamech gets killed, and the “villain” of the film, Tubal-Cain, steals the snakeskin. Noah, in other words, doesn’t get whatever benefit the serpent’s skin was to bestow.
This movie is Luciferian to the core.
It is just another step in the massive ongoing propaganda campaign to convince the world that the Creator God of the Bible is evil, and that Lucifer (“the Light-bearer”) is good and is trying to bring “enlightenment” to humanity.

In “Noah”, the fallen angels are “good guys” that were kicked out of heaven because of their compassion for humanity, they help Noah build the ark, and they ascend to heaven when they die helping defend the ark against a band of marauding evil humans. Director Darren Aronofsky stated that he attempted to make “the least biblical biblical film ever made”, and he may have achieved that. In “Noah”, almost everything is the opposite of what it should be. Instead of villains, the fallen angels are heroes. Instead of a preacher of righteousness, Noah is depicted as a psychopathic maniac that hates humanity and wants to kill his unborn grandchild if it is a girl. The movie somehow finds a way to avoid using the word “God” the entire time, and during a scene where Noah explains to his family how the world was “created”, the film displays visuals depicting Darwinian evolution. But all of the controversy surrounding the film only seems to have helped it at the box office. In fact, it pulled in approximately 44 million dollars in North America alone over opening weekend.
When I first heard that a movie about Noah starring Russell Crowe was coming out, I was very excited. I thought that it could spark discussion about one of the most important events in human history.
Unfortunately, the film twists and distorts the story of Noah so badly that it is virtually unrecognizable. And Americans are so dumbed down these days that many of them will end up believing that Aronofsky’s version is what the Bible actually says.
So before we get into the specifics of what “Noah” says about the fallen angels, let us first take a look at what the Scriptures tell us.
In Genesis 6:1-4 we read the following…
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
Obviously the fact that fallen angels got together with human women and produced hybrid offspring displeased God greatly, and in the book of Jude we read that these fallen angels are kept in chains awaiting the day of judgment…
And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
The Book of Enoch, which is actually directly quoted in the book of Jude, refers to these fallen angels as “Watchers” and contains a lot more details about them. The following is how Wikipedia summarizes what the Book of Enoch has to say…
In the Book of Enoch, the Watchers (Aramaic. עִירִין, iyrin), are angels dispatched to Earth to watch over the humans. They soon begin to lust for human women and, at the prodding of their leader Samyaza, defect en masse to illicitly instruct humanity and procreate among them. The offspring of these unions are the Nephilim, savage giants who pillage the earth and endanger humanity. Samyaza and his associates further taught their human charges arts and technologies such as weaponry, cosmetics, mirrors, sorcery, and other techniques that would otherwise be discovered gradually over time by humans, not foisted upon them all at once. Eventually God allows a Great Flood to rid the earth of the Nephilim, but first sends Uriel to warn Noah so as not to eradicate the human race. The Watchers are bound “in the valleys of the Earth” until Judgment Day. (Jude verse 6 says that these fallen angels are kept “in everlasting chains under darkness” until Judgement Day.)
So of course any movie about Noah would clearly depict the fallen angels as the bad guys.
In Aronofsky’s version, they are actually good guys that help Noah build the ark…
This is the film that will introduce most of the country to the Watchers: fallen angels who, according to Aronofsky’s version, have been encrusted in stone and, with a little persuading, help Noah construct the ark (for giants with gobs of rock for hands, they are extraordinarily dexterous).
When I first heard this, I was absolutely dumbfounded.
And no, the Watchers were not giant rock monsters either. I have no idea where Aronofsky got that.
In “Noah”, the fallen angels are actually portrayed as being more compassionate than the Creator, and when they are banished to Earth for showing too much compassion for humanity they are rescued by Methuselah and his flaming sword…
It is recounted that the Watchers are friends with Methuselah because he saved them once. They came to earth to help the humans after the Creator had banished humans from Eden, but the Watchers too were punished for disobedience by the Creator, who bound them to the earth and forced them to take form as stone creatures. But after learning from them, the humans tried to enslave and kill them. They tried to run, and Methuselah helped their escape by fighting the waves of human soldiers with a burning sword.
Noah speaks with Methuselah and receives a seed passed down from the Garden of Eden. He plants the seed on a plain, and an entire forest grows upon it within seconds. This miracle convinces the Watchers that Noah is chosen by the Creator. Noah announces that all the wood will be used to build an ark, and they start to help with the construction work.
At the end of the movie, instead of receiving judgment, the fallen angels get to ascend to heaven as they die defending Noah’s ark from a violent horde of people trying to board it…
The fallen angels, led by Semjaza, defend Noah and the ark at the start of the flood from Tubal-Cain’s raging army that is fighting to board the ark. The Watchers begin to fall one by one under the army’s onslaught. As the first one dies, the Watcher cries out to the heavens for forgiveness, then his rock-like body transforms into light and shoots up into the sky. This “resurrection” prompts another rock giant to proclaim, “He returns to the Creator.”
I can just imagine how little kids that watch this film are going to feel. They are going to want to be just like the heroic “rock giants” that helped Noah. They are going to have absolutely no idea who “the Watchers” really are.
Normally I do not spend my time writing about Hollywood films. But hundreds of millions of people around the globe could end up seeing this movie over the next several years, and instead of learning about one of the most important events in human history, they are going to get a version of the story that is almost totally opposite of what it should be.
The truth is that fallen angels are real, they really did mate with human women, and the Nephilim really did exist.
And Noah really did exist as well, and Jesus told us that we should learn from him, because the days when Jesus returns will be very much like the days of Noah. In Matthew 24:37-39 it says the following…
But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
I really wish that Hollywood would have gotten this one right.
An accurate movie about Noah starring Russell Crowe would have been very cool.
Unfortunately, it didn’t turn out that way.
