The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. " Genesis 6
This (left) is George Hagopian’s data forwarded to Fred Lee for artistic development of his (Hagoppian’s) eyewitness account. The Ahmet-Simmons’ photo is on the right.(The Ahmet Object photograph is copyright by Robin Simmons/George Adams.)
It is this front correlation view by which the Ahmet Object is most closely scrutinized--also a view which suggests a 6:1 ratio of length-to-width: 300-to-50 cubits (L-W-H); and a firm 1.67:1 ratio for width-to-height: (50-to-30 cubits).
I have used 22 inches/cubit (instead of 18.5 inches) due to the pre-deluvian hyperbaric atmospheric environment and the paleontology record which indicates proportionately large fauna and flora…including man. L-W-H: 550ft. x 91.67ft. x 55ft.; or 2,773,017.5 cubic feet within the object.
The discrepancy is probably due to the Gaussian smoothing function of the pixels within the image taken by Ahmet.
Results: 83% correlation (1.39/1.67) to Biblical Ark using the blur function (Gaussian) in image processing.
My opinion that the Ahmet-Simmons photo is currently the best candidate for the Ark.
