Bill Hemmer: "It took 2,000 years to find Noah's Ark"

On March 19, 2014, Fox News host Bill Hemmer on Wednesday suggested that the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 may never be found because "it took us 2,000 years to find Noah's Ark."

A former FAA spokesperson, Scott Brenner, had told Fox News the day before that the pilots of the missing flight had intentions of taking the plane in a different direction before they last spoke to air traffic control. During Fox's coverage of these new details, Hemmer pointed out to aviation attorney Salvatore Lagonia that the plane could have ended up in Pakistan or the Indian Ocean.

"Obviously, it's hard to tell where he went after that. Once he went below 5,000 feet and really tried to stay clear of radar, that plane could make even more turns."

To which Hemmer responded: "So, what, it took us 100 years to find the Titanic? It took us 2,000 years to find Noah's Ark. Do we ever find flight 370?"

Thankfully, this didn't tie into another condemnation of Bill Maher by the American Taliban. However, it still reeks of the exact same brand of stupidity.

Claims that the Ark has been found in Turkey have been repeatedly debunked, as Fox News' own website has reported.

The tragedy of it all is that Hemmer's point would have been valid if he had chosen to reference Amelia Earhart's airplane, or something else that is known to have actually existed. It was a valid point needlessly tainted with the stench of stupidity.
