Greenpeace building an ark

~from CWN

The radical environmentalist group Greenpeace has begun building a 30-foot boat halfway up Turkey’s Mount Arafat, the location where, according to the Bible story, Noah’s Ark landed when the great flood subsided.

A team of 20 Turkish and German carpenters, working at an elevation of over 8,000 feet, will complete the project. The building of the ark is intended to draw the attention of political leaders attending June’s G8 summit in Germany to the threat of global climate change. The boat is supposed to symbolize the hope of saving the planet from an environmental catastrophe.

I think the Bible said it was Mt. Ararat.
Arafat had not been born yet.
