Egypt shock: Dead Sea Scroll scan suggests Noah's Ark 'was Great Pyramid of Giza'
Express (UK) ^ | Wednesday, February 19, 2020 | Callum Hoare

Matthew Sibson has put forward a theory that the story actually retold a great flood in the Middle East, where Egypt's high-rankers used the Great Pyramid of Giza to shield from disaster.

Mr Sibson's theory is based on a bombshell discovery in 2016, he revealed on his YouTube Channel "Ancient Architects".

He said last week: "The Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered by Bedouin shepherds more than 50 years ago in the Qumran Caves in the Judean Desert of the West Bank near the Dead Sea.

"The find contained around 800 manuscripts, thought to be around 2,000 years old and contain a range of biblical and non-biblical stories, offering experts a glimpse into the past.

"Some have called it the greatest archaeological discovery of the 20th century, but scientists working at the Leon Levy Dead Sea Scrolls Digital Library Project scanned tens of thousands of fragments of the scrolls with a custom-made camera, that used different wavelengths of light at 28 times higher resolution than standard scans.

"Previously illegible words could now be read.

"Before then, regarding the story of Noah's Ark, scholars had been unable to read a particular word following the Hebrew phrase 'the ark's tallness,' but the new scans revealed the word 'ne'esefat.'

"The translation of this word from Hebrew to English means gathered, which Dr Alexey Yuditsky from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem says means that the ark's ribs were gathered at the top to form a shape of a pyramid."

...He added: "According to Yuditsky, the Septuagint - a Greek translation of the Old Testament, which dates to the third century BC, also describes the ark as pyramid-shaped, using a Greek verb that also has a similar meaning to 'gathered'.

Yeah, the ark had a peaked roof (for better rain run off).

So what?

The ark was made of stone blocks?

There is a fringe theory that the Sphinx shows significant water damage as from a Great flood. This theory, I believe, suggests that the Sphinx in 12,000 years old. Which most people would find doubtful. I have no idea if the Great Pyramid shows water damage.

Nothing has better buoyancy than the Great Pyramid.

The Great Pyramid mainly shows damage from later builders who stripped the facing stones for reuse.

The water erosion of the Sphinx is just a fact; the geologist Robert Schoch suggested a more conservative 7000 year figure based on the length of time exposure to rain would cause the damage (iow, not a worldwide flood, which wouldn't cause the damage anyway), given that rainfall is no longer that much of a problem at Giza, for some reason. :^)

For some reason, that theory doesn’t float with me...

And the poop. Imagine having to deal with the poop. And the food supply, that would take another ten Arks. And building the Ark as described out of wood with the tools of the time would take 3000 man years.

The Nile floods all the time...has for eons. They counted on it as it replenishes the soil for their crops.

Noah built it as a helicopter, but it's gas mileage was too low, so he went with the boat idea. He trained the animals to row.
