Where's the Proof the Ark of the Covenant is even there ?

The good news is the Ark of the Covenant is in no danger from Ethiopian Muslim mayhem since it was transported to America in 1936 and safely stored in a secret U.S. government warehouse. ;-)

if you think God would allow the States to expropriate and make off with the Ark like that you are sorely mistaken.

First, let's have none of this "expropriate" nonsense @Emiles00 That term means to take away property from its owner. The people who rightly "owned" the Ark would be the Mosaic Jews. However, in 1936, thanks to the Diaspora, there was no country of Jews that could make such a claim.

Second, the Ark had already been "expropriated" from the Jews by the Egyptians and stored as a war-trophy in the city of Tanis. So, in this context, the Ark was technically stolen property.

Third, the city of Tanis was buried under a sand-storm that lasted an entire year, Is pharaoh abandoned the city and eventually his dynastic line ended. Thus the Ark, as stolen property became abandonded property.

Meaning, there WAS no temporal owner and consequently America did not expropriate the Ark at all!.

Fourth, America heroically prevented the Nazis from profaning the Ark and attempting to use its powers in a way contrary to God's original intent.

Fifth, I challenge you to name a country that has 1.) a better military, 2.) stronger defenses and 3.) more religious freedom than America. In short, name a country BETTER suited to the long-term storage of The Ark.

Go back to your original statement. I challenge you to PROVE the Ark is where you say it is. If it's in a secret U.S. Government warehouse, how would YOU know ?, nevermind the exact year. I'll wait. Dont worry

@Ultraviolet the Days of America being the best military and having the strongest defenses are almost over. there is hardly any religious freedom in America, not for much longer. If any country better suited for the long-term storage of the The Ark would be, or was, France, Daughter of the Church.

Very interesting and informative! @Live Mike Just for fun, I'll pass this along. If you've ever wanted a miniature Ark Of The Covenant for your curio cabinet, or a Christmas display, there are several ways of getting one that's incredibly well detailed and delightfully tiny!.

Second, Parker Brothers released an "Indiana Jones DVD Adventure Game", that uses the same pieces. Both games turn up all the time at thrift stores like Good Will, Salvation Army and similar second-hand shops. Now here's where things get a bit tricky. Not all releases of either game have that gorgeous gold finish. Some use a dark metallic oxidized bronze colored plastic. Also, even if the box …More

Also, even if the box is sealed with tape, check inside to make sure the pieces are there!

One interesting coincidence, The Ark is perfectly scaled for Lego minifigures. They stand about 1.5 inches tall (3.81cm). As for the detailing? Take a look. ;-)
