On this day in 2105 BCE, Noah Dispatches Dove
Following the failed attempt to dispatch a raven from the ark Noah sent a dove from the window of the ark to see if the great Flood that covered the earth had abated. “But the dove found no resting place for the sole of its foot” and returned to the ark; Noah waited seven days before making another attempt.
