Peter Fotis Kapnistos: The gold of King Solomon is perhaps the greatest lost treasure in history. A mountain of gold was supposedly taken from the fabulous mines of Solomon, who constructed the first temple of Israel out of gold from the land of Ophir. Several explorers have gone on epic journeys in search of the lost gold of King Solomon, "sailing across the Red Sea, plunging down Zimbabwean gold mines, and traveling deep into the Ethiopian Bush."

"History records that the first European to come to Solomon Islands, Alvaro De Mendana, in 1568 gave the archipelago its name because he believed this area of the South Pacific was where King Solomon got the gold he used to build the Temple of Jerusalem." (Alison Ofotalau, "The search for King Solomon's gold continues in his namesake Islands," blogs.worldbank.org)

  • Reality is highly overrated.

Interesting, especially the part about Bitcoin possibly becoming the new currency. But how would you purchase bitcoins? Would it necessarily overcome the gold standard, or GDP, or however the value of money is measured these days?

the part about Hellenism being funded by king solomons gold is completely unfounded untestable and has no basis in historical records.

the pursuit of knowledge will force you to pick a side. Choose wisely.
