Incoming e-mail, Re: Please Update Us on Your Condition and Ed's
It is good to see two new posts from you. How are your lungs? I know Ed is allergic to Olive Leaf Extract but you are not, right? It is anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal. It is especially good for respiratory conditions, although it even killed my husband's parasitic condition...it will even kill MRSA. It is a mainstay for my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and battles viral things effectively for me. I am sending a bottle from Amazon.
Please let us know your current status. We are so hoping for the May 9 date. Take Care
Thanks much. I didn't know Olive Leaf Extract was so good.
Ed is still bedfast, can't even sit up on the edge of the bed by himself, but is gaining strength bit by bit. It sure would be nice if he could just get into his wheelchair with just my help. Right now that is impossible. I would need a motorized lift to do that. He just finished his antibiotic for UTI. Hope he will start eating better soon. His poor legs and arms are so thin.
My X-ray was not good. I am back on an antibiotic for pneumonia and think I have a Strep Throat that this antibiotic can't cure. I am allergic to Strep. The sore throat won't go away. I've had one last 4 months, until I finally was given a penicillin-like antibiotic. I'll probably have to take a round of it after the pneumonia is cured.
My pharmacist suggested I wear a support belt to care for Ed. Dave had the weight bearer's belt I'm now using. It helps much, keeps my back from getting out of place and pinching a nerve.
Thanks for your prayers too. Agape

Incoming e-mail, Re: Days of Awe & Crossing Over
As background, I have been considering April 2-3, 2012 (Nisan 10-11) for quite some time. At 1:53 A.M. on 3-11-2010, I realized something I believe to be important which will be explained herein.
Additionally, up front, I believe the Great Pyramid of Gaza dates of Birth, Baptism and Crucifixion of Jesus are correct. The victor has the privilege of writing and or re-writing history at his discretion, including changing dates in 2nd and 3rd editions of references. On the other hand, the years of the ancient Olympiads are fixed beyond man's tampering. Based on these Olympiads, crucifixion can be fixed, Passover of course, in the year 33AD. This is in agreement with the Pyramid dates which on the Julian Calendar are:
Sept 29, 2BC, 1 Tishri (World created 25 Elul, 1 Tishri is 6th day) - Adam Created - Jesus BORN
Oct 14, 29AD, Jesus Baptized by John TB
April 3, 33AD, Passover, Crucifixion
(Tho some/most do NOT agree with these dates and would take me to task, be it known that I do, for a multitude of reasons.)
What I realized on March 11, 2010 at 1:53 A.M. (the net number) is that April 2, 2012 (Nisan 10) can be written as "1224". First let us establish the importance/relevancy of this number, preceded by a few observations. In our western mindset, when we only see numbers in a date, we automatically think dd/mm/yy. Sorry, tis not true worldwide. Haaretz (The Land - Oldest Newspaper in Israel) sends me daily emails and the last date I noticed was 11/3. Nope, that is not Nov 3 but it is March 11th, 2010. Other nations use varied formats up to and including yy/dd/mm. God sometimes refers to a particular Year, a particular Day and a particular Month. With that in mind...
Writing Dates and Considering Gematria
April 2, 2012 is written as:
2012, 2nd day, 4th month
1224 = April 2, 2012
WHY is the number 1224 important???
1224 is a Biblically important number on which Bonnie Gaunt commented regarding gematria.
My abbreviated comments:
>>> Conception = Dec 24 = 12-24 = His [earthly] life span - 12240 = 1224 x 10
Noted Author Bonnie Gaunt's comments:
Doug Corley suggested that I answer your post regarding the Great Pyramid and its symbolism of the
Plan of God for the salvation of man. You mentioned first hearing of the prophetic significance of the
Pyramid from Dr. Gene Scott. I have fond memories of my correspondence with him many years ago.
Much of the information regarding the Great Pyramid he gave on his radio programs came from the
books I had sent him and from correspondence with him. He had even asked me to be a guest on his
program, but I was unable at the time to do so. But I do appreciate his using some of my research and
getting it out to his large radio audience.
You suggested to Doug Corley that he might like to share more of his studies on this website. So let
me share some amazing things with you, and with all the doves.
Doug came up with the awareness that the total days of Jesus' earthly life was 12240, and that 12240
days equals 34 prophetic years. I found this to be exciting because it confirms our use of both solar
time and prophetic time when dealing with the scriptures. And the Gematria use of these numbers is
also exciting -- they both relate directly to Jesus. The number 1224 is 8 x 153, and we know that the
number 153 is of course the number of fish in the net, which represents the faithful chosen bride of
Christ, drawn in from the sea. Some of the uses of 1224 in the Gematria of the scriptures are:
1224 = Fishes (Greek)
1224 = The net (Greek)
1224 = "Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, the mountain of His holiness
1224 = God's creation (Greek)
34 = Redeemer (Hebrew)
340 = Branch (Hebrew) (Jesus is prophetically called The Branch)
340 = Lion (Hebrew) ( Jesus is also called the lion of the tribe of Judah)
340 = Shiloah (Isaiah 8:6) (Shilowh was Jesus)
The above are the numbers involved in the earthly lifetime of Jesus. But his ministry was 3.5 solar
years, which is 1267 days. If we divide 1267 by 360 we get the number of prophetic years of his
ministry -- and it becomes 3.52. This is a fantastic number relating to Jesus and his ministry. The
number 352 is the Gematria for "The mouth of Jehovah has spoken" (Isaiah 40:5), and we know that
Jesus is the "mouthpiece" of Jehovah, and is called The Word. On one occasion Jesus said "I am the
Way, the Truth and the Life." The title that he gave himself -- The Way -- has a Gematria value of 352.
The purpose for which he came to earth was to be an "offering" for the sin of Adam. The word "offering"
in Hebrew has a Gematria value of 352; it is sometimes translated as "oblation."
Now we know that the Gematria value for Lord Jesus Christ is 3168, and that the latitude of
Bethlehem is 31.68 degrees north. But did you realize that the longitude of His birthplace is 35.2
degrees east longitude. These two numbers form a cross at the place of His birth.
Remember, after Adam sinned, God killed a lamb and made "coats of skins" with which to clothe
Adam. I'm sure that the process of getting the "coat" from the lamb produced blood, which represents
the blood of Christ which was shed on behalf of Adam. How interesting that this word "coats" as is
used here in Genesis has a Gematria value of 352. It definitely relates to Jesus, and the fact that Jesus
is the covering for the sin of Adam. Remember, Adam had been naked -- but in his perfection he could
stand naked before God because he was righteous, but when he lost his righteousness he needed a
cover. Adam realized this, and tried to clothe himself, but it was not sufficient. God was showing a very
important principle here. God gave Adam a "coat" of skin as his "robe of righteousness." And we know
from the scriptures that the "robe of righteousness" represents Jesus who covers our inherited sins.
But Jesus is more to us than just a covering of our sins. He is also a "light" and a "lamp" that leads us
in The Way. It is fitting that the Greek word for "light" and "lamp" has a Gematria value of 352.
Now is it just a coincidence that the latitude and longitude of the place of Jesus' birth forms a cross
identified by the numbers 31.68 and 35.2? Obviously the term "coincidence" has no place here.It is part
of a magnificent plan. And in that plan he is showing us that the number of years of Jesus' ministry was
3.52 prophetic years, or 1267 days. Thus his birth, his baptism and his death and their time
relationships are clearly shown in the "Christ triangle" in the Great Pyramid, and if we extrapolate that
angle, it will take us directly to Bethlehem.

April 3, 33 AD to April 2, 2012 an exact 1979 solar years
722,816-7 days = 2007.8222 prophetic years of 360 days each
Jesus fulfilled the first 1267 days of that particular week of years, 2520 days. There are 1253 days remaining in that prophetic week. 1267 plus 1253 = 2520 - one prophetic week of years, a heptad. Jesus was cut-off, was the time line also cut-off?
MARS was closest to earth on Oct 27, 2008 + 1253 days = April 2, 2012
Inclusive Oct 28, 2008 to April 2, 2012 = 1253 days
Oct 29, 2008 to April 3, 2012 (inclusive) = 1253 days
1253 is a really odd-ball number:
1253, mirror image = 3521 = "The Abomination of Desolation" and "of the synagogue of satan"
April 2-3, 2012 - Nisan 10-11 (F.M. Riley has held this date for years)
The length of his life, his conception date, RAPTURE DATE(?) and multiple other things pivot around the number 1224
Gematria 612 = brit / covenant. There are two covenants. 612 + 612 = 1224
2-3 April 2012 is 2-3/4 or 234, Tan's token.
April 2/3 2012 will be Nisan 10-11 (7-11 Jewish Civil).
11th is also the 1st full day in the land of promise for the children of Israel coming out of the wilderness.
They crossed over on Nisan 10.
April 2, 2012 is also written as 4-2-2012 ( 4-2 - the answer is "42" ).
"The Lamb" is taken into the house 4 days before Passover on Nisan 10-11.
Nisan 11 is 1-11 on the Jewish sacred calendar.
(The above ARE numerical clues given to the church)
1224 - Incarnation at conception
1224 - Christ's body (the gentile church) is complete (April 2-3, 2012) (Supposition of course)
April 2, 2012 plus 1260 days is Sept 14, 2015, Rosh Hashanah, 1 Tishri - Feast of Trumpets - Next in order (Pentecost was fulfilled)
IF Jesus descends at 2nd Advent on 1 Tishri and his feet split the mount in half (earthquake): "of you shall have tribulation 10 days" - takes one to 10 Tishri, Sept 23, 2015, when God can atone for Israel.
As related to Israel, this would fulfill, in order, Feast of Trumpets and Day of Atonement - Yom Kippur 2015. He would also be here to fulfill Tabernacles, thereby completing -
Feast of Trumpets, Yom Kippur (Atonement) and Tabernacles, in order.
1-10 Tishri are the 10 DAYS OF AWE.
In addition to all of that:
Bonnie Gaunt's latest book reveals the numbers 3168 and 352 forms a perfect square around Lake Victoria in Kenya, Africa. Lake Victoria is the headwaters of the Nile which flows NORTH and this is where THE FLY comes from. Obama was supposedly born in Kenya and it is a known fact that [as a minimum] his old stomping grounds are on the N.E. shore of Lake Victoria.
Isa 7:18 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the LORD shall hiss for the fly that [is] in the uttermost part [render as headwaters-dc] of the rivers of Egypt, and for the bee that [is] in the land of Assyria.
Of note however:
In no way has Bonnie Gaunt (to my knowledge) connected Obama with, or to, these co-ordinates numbered 3168 and 352.
In my humble opinion, the 777 drop in the stock market on 9-29-2008 simply reinforces the Pyramid date of Jesus' birth, that being 9-29-2BC, Julian.
On a personal note - I have researched 9-29 since 9-29-2003 when I overheard in the Spirit,
"You have nine "tikto" (G5088 [?] - meaning brought forth) days to close on your house."
Fact: Israel was BROUGHT FORTH from the IRON FURNACE on Nisan 10.
From Sept 29, 2003, the ninth "10 Nisan" is April 2, 2012.
(I am not absolutely 100% sure on the word "tikto" but it does fit - I speak no Greek or Hebrew and understand neither.)
Current suggested prophetic cycle is:
Oct 28/29 2008 - Sept 22/23, 2015 (April 11, 2012 mid-point)
I realize I am less than nothing without Him, but who is without him?
The Lord gave me:
Oct 28/29 on Oct 28/29 2003 - 5 year in advance (Holy inky smoke encounter-weeping)
Sept 22/23 on Sept 22/23, 1993 - 22 years in advance (angelic visitation Rev 22:16) (Equinox)
Sept 29 on Sept 29, 2003 (on His Gregorian [Pyramid] Birthday - hence my research)
Some believe in multiple raptures, the Lord does NOT deal with me on that.
The date I project (not prophesy) for the [final] CLOSING of the gentile church is:
2-3 April 2012 - 10-11 Nisan.
Israel CROSSING OVER is perfect typology.
Each can believe according to their own persuasion as to when Jesus was born. I think it is critical (numerically) in determining prime potential dates for the closing of the church. After more than 6 years (since 9-29-2003), the date with the most promise, in my view, is April 2-3 2012, 10-11 Nisan.
If there are previous raptures, well and good. I am talking about the final rapture of the gentile church.
Again, so much pivots around the number 1224. Even the length of his earthly life speaks volumes through gematria. Remember, Pyramid calculations reveal the length to be 12240 exclusive and 12241 inclusive days:
Only one verse carries each of these numbers as sums.
Acts 13:41 Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which ye shall in no wise believe, though a man declare it unto you.
2Ti 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. [inclusive]. Maranatha
> > Based on these Olympiads, crucifixion can be fixed, Passover of course, in the year 33AD.
After much research, I am convinced that the Crucifixion was on Thursday, the preparation of the Passover, Nisan 13, 3790 (April 6, 30 AD, Julian).
Reason 1. The Temple had been under construction 46 years the first Passover of Jesus ministry in 27 AD, the Jewish Sabbatic Year of 3787 that preceded the Jubilee Year in 28 AD. Herod began construction of the Temple in 19/20 BC. How can you get around that?
Reason 2. Tiberius became Co-Rex with Augustus in 12 AD. I found a coin minted in 13 AD with Tiberius' face on one side and Augustus' face on the other side. Tiberius' 15th year of ruling Judea was 26 AD, when Jesus was baptized near his 30th birthday, which was Tishri 1.
I think Jesus was conceived during Hanukkah and born Tishri 1, 3757 (Sept. 4, 5 BC), before Herod died shortly before Passover in 4 BC. On Tishri 1, 3757, the heavenly sign listed in Rev. 12 was present, as it was when this kosmos started operating on Tishri 1 after Adam was created.
> > Doug came up with the awareness that the total days of Jesus' earthly life was 12240, and that 12240 days equals 34 prophetic years. I found this to be exciting because it confirms our use of both solar time and prophetic time when dealing with the scriptures.
I deal with normal Jewish years. So-called prophetic time uses the same estimated time we use, 30-day month, 12-month year, 360-day year. It doesn't mean that every one of our months literally has 30 days, but that figure will do for estimating things like interest on a loan.
> > (Rapture?)
April 2-3, 2012 - Nisan 10-11 (F.M. Riley has held this date for years)
It is my understanding that Pastor Riley still thinks the Rapture will be this year, even though Nisan 10-11 has passed.

I think the great and terrible Day of the Lord, the day Jesus receives his Millennial Kingdom, the day of the Judgment Seat of Christ, the day of God's Wrath will be Tishri 1, 5776, Sept. 14, 2015.
There are 7 months between the Day of God's Wrath and the Second Advent (Eze. 39:12,13). I think this places the Second Advent on Nisan 1, 5776, April 9, 2016, the first day of the Jubilee Year.
Jesus is the stone that the builders rejected. When the capstone is put on the Pyramid of Giza, it will be 5776 inches tall. It looks like 5776 is the last year of this age. The Jubilee Year must be preceded by a Sabbatic Year. 5775 is a Sabbatic Year.
> > Some believe in multiple raptures, the Lord does NOT deal with me on that.
The date I project (not prophesy) for the [final] CLOSING of the gentile church is:
2-3 April 2012 - 10-11 Nisan.
I hope the First-Trump Rapture (I Thess. 4:16,17) will be Sunday (Rev. 1:9,10), May 9, 2010, Ascension Day. The Last-Trump Rapture (I Cor. 15:51,52) seems to be Tishri 1, 5776 (Rev 6:17; 7:14). Agape

Yes. Not only does this tetrad end in 2015 (5776), but when the stone that the builders rejected (Christ) becomes head of the corner, the Pyramid of Giza will be 5776 inches tall. I think the first day of the year 5776, Tishri 1 (Sept. 14, 2015), the Feast of Trumpets, will be the day that Christ will become head of the corner.
Isa 19:19 says, "In that day shall there be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the LORD." Giza means border. Agape

Incoming e-mail, Re:
I saw your website and thought you might be interested in my briefing. God Bless
Signs in the Heavens
It seems to me that the eclipse of the Eve of Trumpets, Elul 29, 5775 (Sept. 13, 2015) marks the last day of this age. The next day, Tishri 1, 5776, the Feast of Trumpets, will probably be the first day of Christ's Millennial Kingdom. That should be the day of the Judgment Seat of Christ, the great and terrible Day of the Lord, and the Day of God's Wrath, but not the day of the Second Advent, which is 7 months later (Eze. 39:12,13).
The year 5776 has been recorded for us from the days of Adam, Seth and Enoch. They were contemporaries over 300 years. I think they built the Pyramid of Giza with the help of the giants. Those giants could have been over 12 ft. tall. Og, king of Bashan (fruitful), an area east of the Jordan, had a bed that was 13.5 ft. long.
Jesus is the stone that the builder's, whom I believe were the Satanic giants, rejected. Adam, Seth and Enoch, about half the size of the giants, may have literally been powerless to install the capstone without the giant's help.
In Luke 20:17, Jesus said, "What is this then that is written, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner?" With the capstone installed, the pyramid would be 5776 inches tall. I believe that gives us the Hebrew year when Jesus will begin to rule his millennial kingdom.
This seems to be understood by the secretive 33rd degree Masons. Why else would they add 4000 years to 1776, when the USA was established, to get 5776?
On this website,
Thomas R. Horn, who wrote "Apollyon Rising," said,
"Adepts of the mystical order actually go to great lengths to show how this addition of 888+888=1776 is the "cardinal number" of the "great work" also known as the "eagle of eagles" reflected in the well-known Masonic symbol of the two-headed eagle or phoenix, which Masonic dictionaries define as historically representing the "merger" of two gods (in this instance, Jesus with Apollo). 
"Given everything else we have learned from the works of Freemasons like David Ovason and Manly P. Hall, this date, 1776, representing two messiahs—the rejection of one in favor of the other—is not likely a mistake. Thus, the trestleboard’s 1776 "beginning" date for the great work of the Craft truly marked the start in history of the secret doctrine of Freemasonic Illuminatus toward establishing a New Atlantis in anticipation of the return of their founder and deity, Apollo/Osiris/Nimrod.
"To further verify this part of the cipher pointing to an "alternative capstone" or second messiah, the year 1776 at the base of the pyramid (i.e., on our $1.00 bill) is understood by Masons worldwide to be the year 5776 Anno Lucis ("in the year of light"). This is because Masons of the ancient Craft add four thousand years to the common date, the number of years that conventional theology assumes creation began before Christ: thus, 4,000+1,776=5,776.
"Why is this important? Because 5,776 is exactly how many inches high the Great Pyramid in Giza would be when completed with its capstone, a sacred fact to occultists. Completing the pyramid symbolically in this way is central to the rituals and mysticism of Freemasons and numerous Illuminated fraternities. This has been true throughout the ages, and is why this symbolism was encoded on the Great Seal and remains at the core of esoteric ambition today. The year 1776 thus represents 1) the trestleboard date on which the great work and secret destiny began; and 2) is a prophetic marker toward the descent of the eye of Apollo/Osiris/Nimrod upon the uncapped pyramid in accomplishment of the Great Work.
"Yet if the year 1776 represents the starting date on the trestleboard toward the accomplishment "of which the United States Government was dedicated from the day of its inception," as Manly P. Hall said, what date did the Master Masons envision that the work would be finished in order that Hiram Abiff (Osiris/Apollo/Nimrod) could return to inhabit his temple? This is found in the modern Jewish calendar as well as the Scottish Rite Freemasonry, who, unlike their other brethren, prefer adding 3,760 years to the common date. In order for this superior side of Masonry to arrive at the appropriate number for their finished pyramid and the completed work (the height of the pyramid with its capstone reaching upward of 5,776 inches), they have to add the future date, 2016, to the common era, or 3,760+2,016=5,776.
"This is important for several reasons, not the least of which is that, if the culmination of the Illuminati enterprise is concluded in 2016, it is prophetically related to the infamous future year 2012—the end of the Mayan Long Count calendar. The year 2012 could therefore represent in Christian eschatology the beginning of Great Tribulation, with 2016 representing the "midst of the week" when Apollo (Antichrist) presents himself as God and enters the temple in Jerusalem."
Personally, I do not think 2016 will be the ""midst of the week" when Apollo (Antichrist) presents himself as God and enters the temple in Jerusalem." I think the year 5776 (2015/16) will encompass the Day of God's Wrath and the Second Advent of Christ 7 months later.
The year 5776 will be a Jewish Leap Year with the 13th month. That is why Dan. 12:11 mentions 1290 days instead of 1260. In 5776, there will be 7 months (Eze. 39:12,13) between Tishri 1, Day of the Lord, and Nisan 1, the Second Advent on the first day of the Jubilee Year that would have been announced on the previous Day of Atonement, Tishri 10, 5776 (Sept. 23, 2015).
Is the Jubilee Year possible in 5776? Yes, because it is proceeded by a Sabbatic Year, 5775. Sabbatic Years divide by 7 equally. The Jubilee would run from Nisan 1, 5776 to Nisan 1, 5777. If the Jubilee Year was any later than this, it would have to start 7 years later, in 5783, because it has to follow a Sabbatic Year. That does not seem possible, because the last generation (Mt. 24:32-34) started in 1967. The Six-Day War. Iyar, 1967, + 48.33 years (Mt. 1:17) = Tishri 1, 5776. That ties in with the height of the capped pyramid, 5776 inches. That pyramid has been before our faces ever since the days of Adam, Seth, Enoch and the giants. Now, we can better understand what it is telling us.
Over 2000 researchers and experts on the Middle East, coming from a large number of universities, research centers and other organizations from all over the world, will gather in Barcelona in 2010 at the World Congress for Middle Eastern Studies (WOCMES).

I agree with Oliver Thomas' "Reply to Bruce Baber (24 Apr 2010) 360 or 365 day years"
Brother Bruce, I used solar 365 day/years, and here is why. I think the 360 day prophetic year is another case of wishful thinking. Sir Robert Anderson in his book The Coming Prince invented a 360 day “prophetic” year to facilitate his interpretation of Daniel’s 70 Weeks. Anderson tortured scripture until it submitted to his concoction.
I don’t think the Jews would ever have interpreted the 70 Week prophecy the way Anderson did. To my knowledge the Jews never used a 360 day/year calendar, “prophetic” or otherwise, and they always knew Nisan 1 was associated with the barley harvest.
I found this little anecdote that illustrates the basic Jewish understanding that a year is governed by the seasons, “In ancient Israel, the religious leaders would determine the date for Passover each spring by seeing if the roads were dry enough for the pilgrims and if the lambs were ready for slaughter. If not, they would add one more month.” The point is the Jews would never have let their calendar depart from the seasons; Nisan would always be in the spring of each year. The Jews used a lunisolar calendar of 354 days adding an extra month 7 times in a 19 year period. To the Jews of Daniel’s day a Week was 7 solar years just as it is for us today.
When Daniel interpreted Jeremiah’s 70 years of captivity he knew it meant 70 years not 69. Would anyone have the audacity to suggest that it was really only 69 prophetic years, and even Daniel misinterpreted the scriptures! Anderson would have interpreted the end of the following scripture to read … to fufil threescore and nine years.
2Ch 36:21 To fulfil the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed her sabbaths: for as long as she lay desolate she kept sabbath, to fulfil threescore and ten years.
Were the children of Israel wandering in the desert 40 or 39.42 years; did the famine in Egypt last 7 or 6.9 years! Who gets to decide when a year is 360 days and when it is 365 days? I think all prophecy uses a 365 day solar year. If someone has to change the length of a year to make a prophecy fit their liking, I would recommend they stay away from the Book of Revelations. We should neither add to nor take away from the words of prophecy.

Why the rapture must be before the tribulation
This may just blow you away. It is going to go against everything you were shown by prophecy teachers throughout the years, and will probably raise all the hairs on your head. But I want you to entertain another understanding for Daniel 9:24-27 for a moment. Then I want to relate it to an article that I just read which I believe will help you to see this as a strong potential....
Why the rapture must be before the tribulation
What is almost as compelling as what I just found was the date the covenant was signed. From what I can gather from this article, it was signed on Friday April 23, which was Nisan 10 on the Hebrew calendar as I have calculated it. Nisan 10 is the same Hebrew date Yeshua rode into the city on the donkey in a proclamation of sorts, and the date when many believe the identity of the anti-messiah would become evident as well. Maybe it just did.
'We've found Noah's Ark!'... claim evangelical explorers on mission to snow-capped Ararat (but British scientists say 'show us your evidence')

As believers in the literal truth of the Bible, they knew it was there.
Even so, the explorers who say they found seven large wooden compartments beneath snow and volcanic debris near the peak of Mount Ararat can be forgiven their excitement.
