The problem of the height of the
Bender site when considered in the light of Gen. 8:5. It took from
the 17th day of the 7th month to the 1st day of the 10th month,
before “the tops of the mountains became visible.”
How does one reconcile this with the fact that
there are peaks in the region higher than Cudi?
The mountains would be expected to be visible
much sooner, if the water was low enough for the Ark to have "beached"
at around 6,000-7,000 feet on Cudi about 6 weeks earlier.
