Ed Behling was led to the Ark in 1973 (Talk.Origins)
- Ed Behling, a clinical psychologist working for the U.S. government in Turkey, was led to Noah's ark on Ararat in 1973 by a very old Turkish shepherd. He saw it on a cliff about 100 feet above him in foggy conditions. The front was broken off; it was basically square in cross-section. He saw 150-200 feet of it, beyond which it tapered off into the snow.

CreationWiki accepts that the reference used by Talk.Origins (Crouse 1993) is an objective refutation of this claim, although without checking the source of the claim (Shockey) we can't say if Talk.Origins has fairly represented the original claim. It is not a claim made, or at least continuing to be made, by mainstream creationists.
