While I respect what experts like Tudor Parfitt and others in his field say, I don't totally agree with everything they say. Again, it has more to do with one's mindset and individual opinion on these mythical and legendary topics. If you believe that the Bible, Koran, or whatever ever holy texts you believe in are true, then you would also believe that this Ark of the Covenant had almost supernatural like powers. Legend has it that this is because it came from God, which is a simple enough explanation. I, personally, believe that there are forces in this world and even throughout the universe that we humans simply cannot begin to understand. Maybe these things have scientific explanations, but we are likely a long way off from being able to explain these forces in our scientific terms. Some have theorized that the Ark was some kind of communication device to talk directly to God. That is indeed an interesting theory and would put a lot of customs linked to the Ark into logical contexts. Like only having holy individuals being able to use or be in the very presence of the object. But, like all myths it boils down to interpretation. That's just my take on it....
