A Comment On Our Recent Article, Digging Into The Documents And The Attempted Hijacking Of Paradise
I cannot argue with the article by Paul Ferguson on the Documentary Hypothesis and the creation accounts (Vol 23 #1). However, there is another completely different view of the Genesis creation accounts, which he completely missed.

Skepticism And The Value Of Evidence
Some old History Teacher at my high school in Broken Hill NSW (Australia) told me that Christopher Columbus discovered America. He said this was corroborated in history books. I don’t hear anyone arguing about the truthfulness of that event even though there are no actual photographs or movies of him doing so…nothing other than old documents (scrolls?) and sketches.

It is possible the ark landed on Cudi, and Hagopian is still not a liar!
Response from ABR Staff member, Rick Lanser:
Thank you for your comments! A problem I see with this idea is that if we accept Hagopian’s story as true, we also need to accept his statements about how the wood was really hard, virtually petrified, so that bullets bounced off. It was not wood that could have been cut on-site or nearby, if it had only been built sometime after 300 AD, and could not have been built as a full-scale model. Such an undertaking would probably have been recorded in the Armenian records, and there is no such record. And practically speaking, since it was reached by a hard climb to a very high elevation, if it was a memorial, ...
