Did people actually find Noah’s Ark? If so, where was it found and how?

The Bible records that as the flood receded, “the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat” (Genesis 8:4). There is a Mount Ararat in Turkey, where some people believe the ark still rests, but Genesis just says it was in that area somewhere, not necessarily on the mountain with that name. 

While lots of different people claim to have found the ark in the last couple of hundred years, either on Mount Ararat or in other nearby countries such as Iran, there is no evidence that anyone ever has.  It seems unlikely that several thousand years after it was built, there’d be much of the wooden boat left to find, anyway!
