Is this Noah's Ark?

Is this Noah's Ark??? Thanks to boingboing for the heads-up to the article on Space(dot)com regarding a strange "anomaly" on Mt. Ararat ::
High on Mt. Ararat in eastern Turkey, there is a baffling mountainside "anomaly," a feature that one researcher claims may be something of biblical proportions.

Images taken by aircraft, intelligence-gathering satellites and commercial remote-sensing spacecraft are fueling an intensive study of the intriguing oddity. But whether the anomaly is some geological quirk of nature, playful shadows, a human-made structure of some sort, or simply nothing at all—that remains to be seen.

Whatever it is, the anomaly of interest rests at 15,300 feet (4,663 meters) on the northwest corner of Mt. Ararat, and is nearly submerged in glacial ice. It would be easy to call it merely a strange rock formation.

But at least one man wonders if it could be the remains of Noah's Ark—a vessel said to have been built to save people and selected animals from the Great Flood, the 40 days and 40 nights of deluge as detailed in the Book of Genesis.

The Genesis blueprint of the Ark detailed the structure as 6:1 length to width ratio (300 cubits by 50 cubits). The anomaly, as viewed by satellite, is close to that 6:1 proportion.

Looks like a surf board or a subway sandwich to me! Just kidding. Adele

Yeah... My wife isn't convinced it is anything...which is strange considering she could see our we'ans on the ultrasound scan photos and I couldn't...

For some reason I feel like if they discovered that this IS Noah's ark, it would do more damage to Christianity than good. Then people would go around saying, "See! We've got PROOF!" as some sort of trump card, when Noah's ark is not about the historical, but the truth in the narrative about God.
