Off the coast of the city of Nessebar, Bulgaria, are 60 shipwrecks nearly completely preserved which date again to 400BC. The shipwrecks have been present in 2016 at depths between 1,000ft and nearly 6,000ft, the place there may be so little oxygen that the decay course of takes for much longer. Now, consultants imagine the shipwreck may assist remedy a longstanding principle which pertains to Noah’s Ark.
In 2000, marine geologists William Ryan and Walter Pitman claimed they discovered proof that the Black Sea, 20,000 years in the past, was a small lake reasonably than the colossal 436,000 sq. kilometre sized physique that’s current at this time.
Nevertheless, in the direction of the tip of the final Ice Age, which completed round 12,000 years in the past, glaciers started to soften, inflicting sea ranges to dramatically rise, connecting the comparatively small lake to the Aegean Sea.
The pair of marine geologists believed they discovered proof of housing within the depths of the Black Sea which proved it was as soon as dry land.
They declare this could possibly be the origin story of Noah’s Ark during which the Earth was flooded nearly immediately as a punishment from God to Man, based on the Bible.
Nevertheless, researchers from the Black Sea Maritime Archaeology Challenge (MAP) analysing the shipwreck imagine there isn’t a proof that the flooding was speedy, however reasonably a gradual course of as a result of rising sea ranges.
Primarily, MAP says this disproves Mr Ryan’s and Mr Pitman’s principle that dramatic flooding within the Black Sea isn’t the origin story of Noah’s Ark.
Maritime researcher Dr Zdravka Georgieva mentioned: “The geophysicists and different specialists from the oceanographic centre in Southampton, say there’s no proof to assist this principle.
“What we collected doesn’t show this catastrophic flood. Information exhibits a extra possible gradual sea stage rising.”

Yeung Wing-cheung, a filmmaker who helped uncover the stays, mentioned: “It’s not 100 per cent that it is Noah’s Ark but we think it is 99.9 per cent that this is it.”
The crew said the construction had a number of compartments, together with wood beams.
Moreover, they found what appears to be wood partitions, doorways, nails and even staircases.
