I wonder why nobody from Israel has gone to that church in Ethiopia to check if what they say is really true! That the Holy Ark of the Covenant is there! How would it have gotten there?? The Holy Temple was destroyed by the Romans 2,000 years ago. Who would have been able to take the Holy Ark out without being noticed???

Interesting places. #4 Church of Mary in Ethiopia - the claim that they have "the ark of the covenant" is just that, a claim. There are at least four other places that claim to hold the ark. The fact is that nobody knows for sure where it is housed or if it is housed anywhere.

If there is a secret room behind Mt. Rushmore, it is no longer a secret. There are other things, like the Holy Ark, that are suspect. The pictures are great but I believe some of the "info" is bogus.

Chaiya Eitan, that's a long story... The Ark actually disappeared around 600 BC when the Babylonians sacked the city. It is not mentioned in Babylonian or Persian writings. the Hebrews/ Jews, didn't have it when they rebuilt the temple Remember the Queen of Sheba? she was apparently pregnant with Solomons child Elemelich, Who became the King and a convert to Judaism around 900 BC. It's possible...but your question is a good one. why have no Jewish Scholars scoped it out :) PS Ethiopia was one of the first nations to convert to Christianity
