Reports of the imminent unveiling of the Ark of the Covenant are gaining widespread interest, the patriarch of the Orthodox Church of Ethiopia has claimed the Ark has been hidden in a church in his country for thousands of years.

"The patriarch of the Orthodox Church of Ethiopia says he will announce to the world Friday the unveiling of the Ark of the Covenant, perhaps the world's most prized archaeological and spiritual artifact, which he says has been hidden away in a church in his country for millennia, according to the Italian news agency Adnkronos."

No. Ethiopia is a Christian country and that's where the Ark has been. If Ethiopia were an Islamic country it wouldn't make much difference. If Ethiopia were an Atheist country the Ark would've been deliberately destroyed in order to suppress information and history. So no I don't think it's strange. Strange would be if it were the hands of atheists. http://www.smithsonianmag.com/people-place...ant-200712.html Huh? Atheists would have destroyed it? Why would we have feared an overdecorated box?

I'm a Deist and I still think the Ark and Judaism are fascinating. I wouldn't want it destroyed.

I'd be careful volunteering for that, SpIdEr. If you touch it some religious fanatic is going to assume you're the anti-Christ. ----------------------------------------------------------EDIT!!! --------------------------------------- On the other hand maybe they'll think you're the Second Coming. Anti-Christ? bah! I wouldn't want to rule over the inferior, puny humans, I'm more of the wipe everything out and start again kind of despot. lol (I'm just playing, I kid around a lot, probly too much.)

I never said Christians haven't done the same thing. And to be fair, those were more motivated by racism tied to what they percieved as "religious nationalism" than Christianity itself. There isn't anything inherently racist in Chr... [More]

Do a little research on the Soviet Union. What you say is ironically true. Not exactly. The Soviets feared organized religion because they thought it would be a threat to their government. It had nothing to do with any personal atheism of any government members. Your claim is akin to claiming that their beards caused them to destroy churches.

Your claim is akin to claiming that their beards caused them to destroy churches. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_in_the_Soviet_Union It had to do with state and atheism. The Soviets proselytized atheism.
