Will Noah’s Ark ever be found?


Noah’s Ark landed on the mountains of Ararat (Gen. 8:4).  According to the book, The ark on Ararat, by Tim Lahaye and John Morris, many people in centuries past have climbed Mt. Ararat and saw the ark.  In 1840, there was an earthquake on the mountain, and it is believed that the ark is now covered up by ice and snow.  There have been many expeditions to the mountain, but now with political problems in the area, it is difficult to get permission to climb and explore.  If the ark were found, it would confirm the Biblical account of the flood, but would it be of any benefit to the skeptics?   Would the proof compel them to reconsider the Bible?
