Just a mention again, of how immense Noah's ark and earlier arks could have been.
I found some old of my old notes from 2004, which I had posted on another site.

RE The Deluge, Tablet Eleven Translated abt. 1873
[Barb's Note Niburu is mentioned in there.]     

In the Old testament version, the measurements are in "cubits." 
Cubit: In ancient Egypt, a cubit was the distance from the elbow to the fingertips. Today a cubit is 18 inches.-  http://www.factmonster.com

"According to the Book of Genesis....... the Lord.....gave command to Noah to build an ark, 300 cubits long, 50 cubits broad, and 30 cubits high. Into this ark Noah entered according to the command of the Lord, taking with him his family, and pairs of each animal. After seven days the Flood commenced in the 600th year of Noah, the seventeenth day of the second month, and after 150 days the ark rested upon the mountains of Ararat."   
Hebrew version (Old Testament) measurements of that ark:
 
300 cubits x 18" = 5400" =   5400"  = 450'    450 feet long.
                                           
 
50 cubits  x  18" =   900" =    900"   =   75'     75 feet across
                                             
 
30 cubits  x   18" =  540" =    540"    =  45'     45 feet high

i remember this from years ago, and i believe it to be the truth, i dont know what others have written and dont really care, just to say.  however there was a bunch of skytroopers that landed.  ::) ;D
Life is the element of disoriented illusions. A character of self- being with a mind of self awareness. Grievance combined with happiness in a fortitude of harmony and socio communicative disagreements of proffered existence. SINECK,

I was just going through some of the older posts on here and found this. I thought it would be good to update it due to the significance.
I also can confirm that I visited this site on Mount Ararat about 10 years ago whilst trekking in the Mount Ararat region. I saw
with my own eyes the petrified remains of what is claimed to be the Ark of Noah.
The web site below was sent to me recently by a new member of the Town Hall, "Andy Besson". This is a person who I have been in touch with by e-mail for the last few weeks, and joined the Town Hall on my recommendation.  Thanks Andy for the link.

Carbon dating has a long history of underestimating the age of the object. They now admit that they are off on a 20,000 year old objects by 3750 years - meaning the carbon 14 test says it is only 16250 years old. There have been examples where it was less than half the correct age. However, assuming the standard deviation, 4800 years old becomes a shade over 5900 years old and this is where things get really dicey. The half life of carbon 14 is 5730 years. Carbon dating assumes all objects regardless of age had the same amount of carbon to begin with. This despite the fact that we have ice samples showing 3 times the carbon in ages past. So they count the actual carbon presently in wood in this ship and decide that it can only be X number of years old because the carbon level is too high by their model to be 5730 years old. However, if they are off by their standard margin, it is at least that old. Once you cross the first carbon 14 half life as that would do, they are simply guessing the real age. I would say conservatively this ark is 6000 years old, if not significantly older.

I agree, this method of dating leaves much to be desired.  Mankind has existed on earth for much, much longer than present day science wants to admit.  I can only wonder how many times we were started over again.

Belated Reply to your post,
I have that question too in my mind how many times human culture might have had to start over.

Here is a chart, which I also posted in another Flood Topic which I am bringing back (Noah's and Others' Ancient Arks.)

I just started a Topic on this. THE FROZEN ARK PROJECT of The Natural History Museum of London
Link:  http://planetxtownhall.com/index.php?topic=5485.msg78890#msg78890

There is a DNA bank to preserve animal DNA in case of a cataclysm, based in England.
The Natural History museum of London operates the Ark. 1,000 species. Was just hearing about it on Ancient Aliens, Ch 127 in America, 12:30 - 2:00 PM EST
Computer crashed as I was posting it starting over.
About ten minutes into the show, Giorgio Tsaukalos presents the info. Mr. Tsaukalos is the author of Legendary Times Magazine and a regular on ancient Aliens.

It is interesting...
I'm thinking something exists, equal to or greater than the Norway Seed Vault for plants. For animal and human DNA.
Does anyone have any info?
This Frozen Ark is great but I'm thinking they are not trying to preserve all the species just the ones which are endangered at the moment.
