They finally found something that never existed at all:
According to Oahspe, in the ark of NOE, the God in charge of earth, at that time, sunk the continent of Pan, located in the pacific ocean, beneath the surface. Japan was a remnant of Pan, hence the name.
All the islands in the pacific ocean are tops of mountains of Pan. Jehovih, before this happened, told those that worshiped Him, to build rafts and get ready for the sinking of Pan. When this happened, He sent winds and blew the survivors to all parts of the world.
Stories of the flood were passed down through centuries and that is where the story of Noahs' Ark came from. And somebody has finally found an ark which never existed at all. For the past 50 years, I have read over and over, stories where somebody has found the ark, always in a different place.
Some people will never learn.
