Athens. It is believed that the tomb of Alexander the Great and the Ark of the Covenant have been found on the Greek Island of Thasos, announced Russian Grekomania.ru, which is information partner of the Greek Minister of Culture and Tourism.
I think the Ark of the Covenant is most likely in Ethiopia.
Alexander’s tomb? Most likely in Alexandria, although who knows?
Just curious about that particular sequence in Raiders - if the fire is hot enough to melt human flesh, why does this fellow’s hat remain unscathed?
It depends. Are you a snake?
This is from a Bulgarian website quoting a Russian website describing a report from “amateur excavations.” I’m not gonna get too excited just yet.
If the discovery of the Ark of the Covenant turns out to be true (which I really doubt), you are not going to believe the s***storm this would generate. This occurrence would establish the Bible as history...
If you think that Bible history has no tangible evidence, you haven't been keeping up with much in archaeology.
As far as the proverbial fecal storm, unless the Ark is treated as a magical talisman as depicted in the Indiana Jones series, its just a relic that will cause the Dispensationalists to go insane with wild speculation and demands to rip the Middle East apart, while the other 99% of the world ignores it like they do the Shroud of Turin.
There are many in this world who do not want to see that happen.
Most importantly, those who would press the hardest to make it all go away would be those presently living in Israel.

It’s supernatural fire. That stuff defies physics.
Gosh, just when they need a boatload of cash they find all this neat stuff they can sell. What do you know?
It’s being looked after by Top People......Top People.
Then the temple of God in heaven was opened and the ark of his covenant was visible within his temple. And there were flashes of lightning, roaring, crashes of thunder, an earthquake, and a great hailstorm.
Start in 1 Samuel, Chapter 4 and read the story for yourself.
If you have the American Standard Version, you will discover that the story ends with God smiting the possessors' of the ark with all sorts of plagues, culminating with a plague of hemorrhoids (in their dark and secret places) which led to them offering to give it back.
Being no fools, the Israelites said "How much will you pay us to take it back?" and a price was eventually established.
Other versions try to disguise the exact name of the ailment, but it is clearly hemorrhoids.
LOL! Good one!
“Marion, don’t look at it. Shut your eyes, Marion. Don’t look at it, no matter what happens!”
Nazi's, with an apostrophe, are much worse than the Nazis in WWII.
It wasn’t fire. The guy’s face didn’t burn— it melted.
They’ll be putting those items up on E-Bay.
