This article (James Bryce found a 4-foot timber high on Ararat (Talk.Origins)) is a response to a rebuttal of a creationist claim published by Talk.Origins Archive under the title Index to Creationist Claims.

Claim CH504.1:

In 1876, English explorer James Bryce found a four-foot long hand-tooled piece of wood on Ararat at the 13,000 feet level.

CreationWiki response:

Talk Origins makes a good point here. Just the presence of wood on Mt. Ararat would prove nothing. Before it can be claimed as even possibly part of the Ark it would need to be shown that it could be old enough to be from the Ark. It at least needs to be shown that the wood is not indigenous to the area around Mt. Ararat.
