About the Book
View from the Ark is a groundbreaking book documenting the work of American researcher, David Fasold, and what is today believed to be the authentic site of Noah’s Ark. Fasold’s extensive scientific work was the basis for the Turkish government’s official and only declaration that Noah’s Ark has been found. The site lies in the mountains of Ararat, near the Turkish village of Dogubayazit. This area is now designated as a national park, and the ark site designated in the Turkish as “Nuhun Gemisi” is now a national treasure.
Fasold was formerly with the United States Merchant Marines and had traveled the world. He later spent years operating a successful salvaging business in Florida exploring sunken ships and aircraft and was a close friend of the legendary Mel Fisher.
Fasold brought his comprehensive nautical skills and understanding of fluid dynamics together with his knowledge of ancient cultures. He then used new technology to answer old questions. He used a molecular frequency generator, and later, ground-penetrating radar, a technology formerly used in projects by NASA. But it was his keen ability to put the pieces together into a coherent whole that brought his work to the attention of the world.
Recognized by Turkey’s High Commission for Noah’s Ark, and under the direction of Dr. Salye Baraktutan of Ataturk University in Erzerum, Turkey, Fasold was the only non-Turkish person ever allowed to sit as a member of the commission.
