Movie Reviews

Robin Simmons | Palm Springs area, CA United States | 12/12/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This so-called documentary is a self-serving and deceptive argument for the remains of Noah's Ark being discovered in Iran's Mt. Sueliman (various spellings prevail). The video alleges that the late Sgt. Ed Davis visited this site in 1943 while building a military supply route with the Army Corps of Engineers out of Teheran.

In fact, Ed spoke of Turley's Mt. Ararat by name, not a mountain in Iran. As the story goes, one of Ed's drivers took him to his family home in the foothills of Mt. Ararat where Ed did a favor for them (dynamiting and bulldozing a blocked well so they could easily access water again within the safety of the family compound). In return for the favor, the family arranged for Ed to see the remains of the Ark of Noah when the snow melt-back indicated it was visible -- a rare thing.

Cornuke takes liberties with Ed's account as well as generally accepted historical information about the Kingdom of Uartu (Ararat). Cornuke also eliminates elements of Ed's description of what he saw (a "broken" ark object).

No scientifically reviewed papers have been published regarding Cornuke's claims of finding petrified wood embedded with hairs etc.

As a footnote, I was a co-producer of an episode of NBC's popular "Unsolved Mysteries" that focused on Ed Davis and the mystery of Noah's Ark and Mt Ararat. I spent considerable time with Ed Davis and went to Turkey twice to film Mt. Ararat and conduct interviews. There is a huge wealth of Ark-related circumstantial evidence and anecdotal accounts that point to the Ararat region as containing the remains of something old, large, and man-made in the upper reaches of Great Ararat (aka Masis, Agri Dagh). The details of Ed's story seem only to apply to Ararat and would be difficult to fabricate.

The story Ed Davis tells, in spite of later multiple claims of Ark discoveries on TV specials that never offer one iota of evidence, is based on persuasive observable and verifiable observations.

Too bad Cornuke is so selective in his choices. They degrade his credibility for all but the most naive.

I was surprised to note Bill Crouse as an "advisor" on this film, when in fact I understand he takes issue with the premise of this video presentation.

A more objective investigation into this enduring mystery, perhaps an attempt to literally follow the trail presented in the Ed Davis account, would be welcome for historians, adventurers and those wishing to look at Biblical enigmas.

The mystery is real. Something's up there.

As it stands, there is a deceptively self-serving taint on Cornuke's so-called documentary.

Caveat emptor indeed.
