Hmm, I somehow don't believe this, as there are many imposter ark's in Ethiopia. They even have a festival once per year where they drag "The Ark" through their village streets and dance around it. Is this Ark one of the imposters? I guess the only real way to tell is have somebody touch it....I volunteer Mirror Image! *schemes* (if Mirror Image touches the Ark, I'll be one step closer to global domination with my aquatic sub rulers!)  devil.gif

You might be one step closer to the funny farm, with the rubber wallpaper; but as to your ridiculous schemes for world domination? Man, you just ain't kicking it!  *shakes head*

On a side note, the main article states: "Ethiopians believe it is destined to be delivered to the Messiah when He reigns on Mount Zion, the Temple Mount in Jerusalem."

In Revelation, in the Bible, supposedly the Antichrist figure sets up his one world religion in Jerusalem where he presides from the temple mount...

Atheist, agnostic, believer, whatever, this isn't looking good people. lol

Fascinating anyway you look at it. The Ethiopians have been guarding it for so long, I am most eager to see what it looks like. Even more eager to see if they will allow scholars to inspect it. We shall see.

Most kindly,

Nah, anybody can view it, only a select few can supposedly touch it without being immediately fried crispy. The Israelites supposedly used to carry it around in field battles or so the story goes.

Just because it is a mystery to YOU doesn't make it unexplained.

STORM - a must watch - caution, some profanity and may cause you to experience reason.

He is not actually going to show the Ark on Friday, as that is (possibly) still in Ethiopia, just announce when it will be shown and when it will be put in the Museum.

Strange that it is in the hands of Christians dont you think?? cool.gif


Not really, only a minority of the Jews living in Ethiopia did not convert in the first few centuries. Ethiopia can claim for itself to be the first Christian country.

According to the 2009 national census, over 37 million people or 43.5% were reported to be Ethiopian Orthodox Christians, over 29 million or 33.9% were reported to be Muslim, just under 15,7 million, or 18.6%, were Protestant, and just under two million or 2.6% adhered to traditional beliefs.[1]

If it's the real deal, I would think they'd need robotic arms or something to open it up...as it should have the ability to kill anyone who is not a direct descendent from the priests of the IsrealiteTribe of Levi. Must be some kind of DNA encoded death ray or something. The technology of God, how interesting is that?   yes.gif

The original "Christians" were Jewish folk who had turned away from the old Jewish traditions of burning offerings, to follow the teachings of Christ.   At first, "gentiles" were not allowed to hear the word of Christ, but he said that what he had to teach was for everyone.  Therein was likely part of the cause for a split creating "Christianity".  However, that came AFTER Moses supposedly led his people out of Egypt, so the ones he was leading, and who used the Ark of the Covenant as a weapon, WERE supposedly the ones following the old Jewish customs. (They DID still do all the burnt offering stuff).  BUT, since this was allegedly something God himself instructed Moses to build and use, either religion could lay claim to it, since both belive in God.  The followers of the Jewish religion, still think the messiah has not yet arrived and are awaiting his coming.  They do not accept that Jesus is the one in their prophesies that told of a savior.  They did not want to accept that this savior would be born among them rather than being sent down from heaven on a divine carpet or something. happy.gif

Anyway, the point is, they are covering their butts as to authenticity right from the get-go by saying that a copy has been made a put in every church in Ethiopia.  How did they do that for starters if no one is allowed to see it? and secondly, they did this so no one would know which was the original.  Duh!  How would we know even now?  Just accept it because they said so?

Oh - the darn thing quit working after Moses died.
