Did Noah's Ark Really Exist? Filmmakers Take You Into the Dangerous Real-Life Quest to Find the Biblical Vessel

Explorers have spent centuries looking to the Bible for answers about the final resting place of Noah's ark, the large vessel that is said to have protectively housed Noah, his family and two of every kind of animal during a deadly, world-wide flood.

After 2,000 years of searching, though, there's no definitive physical evidence proving that Noah's ark is a historical reality. But the faithful continue to fervently look for any potential remains, relying on the Bible's claim in Genesis 8:4 that the "ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat."

A failure to find the ark, though, doesn't mean that it isn't real, some say. In fact, the conditions in the area in which it purportedly rested are insanely difficult to navigate.

Mount Ararat — located in modern-day Turkey — is a hotbed of geopolitical unrest, with physical the terrain issues that make exploring the region extremely risky.

In "Finding Noah," a new documentary that is narrated by actor Gary Sinise and will premiere for one-night-only in theaters nationwide on October 8, viewers will get a first-hand look at explorers' harrowing quest to find the massive vessel. 

Director Brent Baum and producer Jonathan Shaw told The Church Boys podcast that their goal in making the film was to "go down the middle" in an effort to simply show what these explorers face as they brave the odds in an effort to find biblical treasure.

"If it's found, it will change how people view the Bible," they said.
