And the Chinese don’t believe in the Ark. Good point.

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?

Precision German engineering.

None of those verses are discussing a literal melting as portrayed by the moviemakers.

The Hebrew word translated “consume away” in the KJV of Zechariah 14:12 refers to flesh *rotting*.

The Hebrew word translated “melt” in the KJV of Psalm 58:7 means to reject or despise.

In Psalm 112:10, the wicked is gnashing his teeth because the righteous man is being rewarded for his honesty; all his plans and desires are being destroyed because of the fruit of the work done by the righteous man. This is a metaphorical use of “melt” to depict how the desires and plans of the wicked man are slipping through his grasp.

Ezekiel 22:20 speaks about the judgment which the people of Jerusalem will suffer for their sins. A metaphor is being used here to describe the judgment that the people of Jerusalem will endure. The point is: get rid of your dross (or slag, depending on the translation used)!

It depends. Are you a snake?

Ha.

"Snakes - why did it have to be snakes?"

"very dangerous...you first..."

and......... "Nazi's....I really hate these guys..."

I think the Ark is in someone's storage unit.

This report is from a Russian site, Grekomania.ru. I *always* have a huge dose of skepticism about info from .ru sites. .ru must stand for “rumor.”

The tomb of Alexander the Great would be a tremendous find by itself. It is one of the world’s great mysteries.

So is the location of the lost Ark.

And now we are to believe the Greeks found both on an island.

Too coincidental, agree.
Russian archeology students on LSD, digging around an Agean island is my guess.

I think the Copts might have something to say about that...

(cue cheesy rap music)

"Copts is filmed live with the the men and women of Egyptian Orthodox christianity. All subjects are considered sinners until redeemed by divine grace..."

Sorry, every time I hear the word "copts" The above runs through My head. It's crowded up there...
