The Ark of the Covenant has been discovered! In Greece!
Forget Indiana Jones! The lost Ark of the Covenant is not in a warehouse in Washington DC. It's on the Island of Thasos just off of mainland Greece. At least that is what the Russian web site Grekomania.ru is claiming. The discovery was announced Pita Nickolaos Kumardzis, head of a research group. They are also claiming that they have found the tomb of Alexander the Great. Here is what web site FOCUS has to say:
Unsurprisingly, I have my doubts that they have found either. But hey, who knows. Maybe Alexander the Great found the Ark of the Covenant, opened it to look inside and got killed? Too bad he never saw Raiders of the Lost Ark. He would have known not to look!
