"Yesterday, millions were waiting to watch eagerly the Ark of the Covenant revealed."

Total garbage waste of my reading time. Then why are you wasting even more time by commenting that you wasted your time?

No one is asking to touch it, merely to see it. Would it not make sense to reveal it to prove the non believers that it exists by revealing it to the public. It wasn't revealed because it is a fable... and if this statement isn't true... the challenge is simply to the show the item and prove it, then there would be no question, the Christians, Jews, Muslims, etc... would not be able to dispute it, right? hmmm... a simple solution for a simple mind.

It's easy to quote... but a wise person thinks for themselves.

I don't know. There are most likely many thousands of people who could cobble together a passable replica of the Ark, especially if the individuals permitted to "view" it would be held back beyond a rope or a chain. And given today's techology, you could even rig the thing to smite somebody on command. Hm. Sounds like fun.

Indeed, you do make a valid point. And with the sheep factor (I believe because someone told me) it would be relatively easy to dupe someone. Electrical shock, big man goes down, dead, believers stand vigil. If people stand vigil over a statue that supposedly cries milk or an image on the side of a tree...or grilled cheese sandwich for that matter, it would be pretty easy to sway the gullible. But, what if it (the ark) were studied by non-believers and believers alike at the same time? Not possible... because of pride or the ark is a fake (an interesting saga, like Gilgamesh), or doesn't exist... [More]

All I've ever said about the likelihood of the Ark being in Ethiopia is that it would have made a sensible place to send it if and when it fell into imminent danger in Jerusalem - across a salt water sea, up in impregnably-high mountain fortresses and guarded by fierce warriors who were also observant Jews and who would have given their lives to defend it. Ok...

There are most likely many thousands of people who could cobble together a passable replica of the Ark, especially if the individuals permitted to "view" it would be held back beyond a rope or a chain. I think they did just that on an episode of MythBusters on the Discovery Channel. It turns out it works as a capacitor and stores static electricity, shocking you when you touch it. I don't remember which episode it was.
