Real-life Indiana Jones seeks the lost Ark

Filmmaker and researcher Harry Moskoff believes he is close to locating the fabled Ark of the Covenant.
The golden chest believed to have held the stone tablets on which the Ten Commandments were inscribed, the Ark remains one of the most sought-after and mystifying religious artifacts in history.

For years researchers have attempted to determine where it might be or if it even still exists at all. It's last known location was King Solomon's Temple but when the Babylonians conquered Jerusalem the temple was destroyed and the Ark disappeared along with it.

Enter Harry Moskoff, a researcher who has spent over 25 years attempting to solve the mystery. Sometimes referred to as a "Jewish Indiana Jones," Moskoff believes that the Ark, which was thought to have been placed within a room of the temple referred to as the Holy of Holies, may still be there inside a hidden chamber that was built underneath by King Solomon specifically for this purpose.

No direct archaeological evidence of the temple has ever been found and its currently accepted location, on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, has been hotly debated for centuries.
"Is the Dome of the Rock the real place of the Temple? Some Jewish sages argue that God would never put any building on top of the Holy of Holies," said Moskoff. "The Dome of the Rock is not on the Foundation Stone, but rather the highest point on Mount Moriah."

Moskoff's quest to locate the Ark is the subject of his book - The A.R.K Report.

"Iíve spoken with other archaeologists and researchers. None of them have the scriptural sources or references where the holiest and most valuable item ever in history is located," he said.

Until the remains of King Solomon's Temple have been conclusively discovered however we may never know for sure whether the Ark of the Covenant is actually located there.

Which is why Appalachia is far superior. Cool mountain breezes,clear springs running into sheltered valleys, and a proliferation of moonshine stills. What more could one ask for? Ahem... I said North Georgia. In fact, the edge of Appalachia is ideal, still in the highlands, and can drive to the mountains (and various trout streams) in less than an hour. A half hour, where I lived. Too much heat? Buy a house on the north side of town. Too cold? Buy a house south of town. Better than shivering in some cabin in West Verginny all winter. Harte

If mountains higher than Everest were destroyed by a global flood then all mountains in the world would have been destroyed as well so there would be no mountains. No? Hanslune may disagree. PS. we'll end up talking about the wrong ark.

No? I'm not about to go down this rabbit hole, but water erodes and water deposits, on an oceanic scale - mountains go and mountains are reformed. Land sinks and land rises. On a geological time scale that men have not witnessed; the Appalachian mountains started to form nearly 500 million years ago and the Himalayas about 70.

A really good internet connection. Me, I left Appalachia in search of just such a thing. That, and, you know, culture. The area's not known for its tolerance of, umm, people who like the theatre. --Jaylemurph

A really good internet connection. Far more interesting things to do and see there than playing on the interwebs. I'll cite Hartes bear hoedown as a good example.
