Porcher. L. Taylor. Ill: "Dr. Carver,est Point graduate andadet at the Academyheretrong rumor going around, that one of our military spy satellites was flying down the Russian/Turkish corridor taking photographsoviet missile site and apparently accidentally took photographs on the Turkish side,arge wooden object which appeared tohip stucklacier0 feet on Mount Ararat. Strong rumors going around the Academy at that time was that apparently our intelligence people at the CIA might have classified photographs of Noah's Ark,as wondering if you had any comments about that."

Laughter Prom Audience.

Dr. Carver:on't recall the CIA working on Noah's Ark,o remember that at the time there were some pictures taken, and there were clear indications that there was something wtm up on Mount Ararat, which was rather strange. There was various archaeological expeditions that were mounted. The Turkish government was not to thrilled about supporting them, because it was getting into an area that was politically dicey from the Turks' point of view. But that is but one of the indications, youaven't been upon't think anyone has, but it certainly was eyebrow lifting and it was certainly another indication that despite its splendorork of poetry, the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Bible, might not be all that bad as history also."

Taylor. Ill: "Thank you. Sir."
