in Siberia

The Bible Is True

“And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”

Genesis 1:25

“And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.”

Genesis  6:17

 Tusk and Sunset A mammoth’s tusk spikes the Siberian sky on Bolshoy Lyakhovskiy Island. Tusks that are discovered with the mammoth’s skull still attached, like this one, are not considered more valuable, notes photographer Evgenia Arbugaeva. She spent two months on the island to document the hunt for ancient ivory. “They can’t sell the skull,” she says of the tusk hunters. “There is no need to saw off the tusk from the skull. They just pull it out, like pulling out a tooth.”

The weather in your photos doesn’t look so tropical.

It was not very bad! We were there in summer, July and August, so the temperatures were about 8°C [46°F] during the day, minus 10°C [14°F] at night. There was not so much rain, just fog. Because the landscape there is very minimalist and simple, I was wishing for some weather, something different. During the whole time on the island we had polar day. It was light all the time. This picture was made close to the end of the season, when the sun started to set a little. We finally did get a sunset.

"A juvenile mammoth, nicknamed 'Yuka,' was found entombed in Siberian ice near the shores of the Arctic Ocean and shows signs of being cut open by ancient people. The remarkably well preserved frozen carcass was discovered in Siberia as part of a BBC/Discovery Channel-funded expedition.... If further study confirms the preliminary findings, it would be the first mammoth carcass revealing signs of human interaction in the region. The carcass is in such good shape that much of its flesh is still intact, retaining its pink color. The blonde-red hue of Yuka's woolly coat also remains."


A well-preserved juvenile woolly mammoth was recently discovered in Siberian ice close to the Arctic Ocean.


  “And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth.  

  And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters.  

  And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.  

  Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.  

  And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:  

  All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.  

  And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.  

And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.”  

Genesis 7:17-24
