Religious Nut Claims To Have Found ‘Fossils From Noah’s Ark’

A man says he found fossils from Noah’s Ark in east Texas. Wayne Propst says he is “stunned,” and not from a head injury of any sort. No, the Tyler Texas man believes that he stumbled upon remnants of the famous boat in a pile of dirt in his aunt’s backyard. Noah’s Ark is one of the most familiar stories in the Bible’s Old Testament.

God was unhappy with the depravity of people, with the exception of this guy named Noah and his immediate family. It seems, God has architectural leanings, because he told Noah to build this boat 300 cubits long (450 feet), 50 cubits wide (75 feet), and 30 cubits (45 feet)  high, and lord knows what a cubit is. After that, Noah was supposed to gather up a male and a female of all of the creatures in the world, and load them onto the big boat. The Bible doesn’t say how they handled clown anemonefish, which all start out as male. Then, God flooded the world.

Propst’s surprise over his discovery of Noah fossils turns the centuries long experts’ search for the mountain in Ararat on its head. That is where the ark should have landed.

You see, the experts were looking in eastern Turkey, just north of the Iranian border. So how did the ark end up in east Texas? Was it just a Bible typo?

Propst was helping his aunt put some dirt outside her house, when what to his wondering eyes did appear? He spied remnants of the ark. Propst said:

‘From Noah’s flood to my front yard, how much better can it get? What’s really interesting to me is we’re talking about the largest catastrophe known to man, the flood that engulfed the entire world.’

So, Propst calls up his handy-dandy self-proclaimed fossil “expert” Joe Taylor. The amateur bone sleuth took a look at a picture of the dirt pile and confirmed the fossils are indeed from the Noah’s Ark period:

‘I’ve never heard of anything about that from over there, I’m surprised he found it there.’

Propst, his aunt Sharon Given, and a bunch of the neighborhood kids have been sifting through the dirt for days. Given said:

‘I just take my toothbrush and work on it until we get it.’

The Tyler Texas man grew up fascinated by dinosaurs, and perhaps, he believes that these great creatures were around at the same time Noah was getting seasick. Propst said nothing could be “any cooler:”

‘Now all I got to do is go in front of my aunt’s house and pick up something from back when it all began. I don’t even have to search anymore.’

God flooded the world with 40 days and 40 nights of rain and drowned everybody but Noah and kin, because He regretted:

‘…How great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth.’

Given the state of the world now, let’s hope that He doesn’t decide to do it again.

For the record, Bipartisan Report has not independently verified the rocks are, in fact, historic.
