The US-based Bible Archaeology Search and Exploration Institute (BASE) has announced that its scholars have allegedly pinpointed the location of a legendary Biblical relic known as the Ark of the Covenant.

According to the BASE archaeologists, the Ark, a chest said to contain the two stone tablets inscribed with the Ten Commandments, was first shipped out to Egypt and then taken to Ethiopia.

“As unusual as this may sound, the BASE team has uncovered compelling evidence that the Ark may well have been spirited up the Nile River to an eventual resting place in the remote highlands of ancient Kush–modern-day Ethiopia,” BASE said, noting that while their theory is not 100 percent foolproof, it has “strong potential.”

The researchers claim that a sect of Jews driven by King Manasseh from Israel took the Ark with them and transported it to Egypt from where they eventually sailed up the Nile to Ethiopia.

BASE investigators pursuing this lead eventually arrived at the Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion in the city of Axum, whose priests claimed that the Ark was indeed contained within.

The investigators however were refused access to the alleged relic, as apparently only a guardian monk keeping a lifelong vigil over the Ark can see it.

“At this juncture, we cannot say with certainty that it is, but neither can he say for certain that it isn’t,” the investigators said. “What we have concluded is that St. Mary’s of Zion church in Axum, Ethiopia, is the resting place either of an incredible replica of the biblical Ark of the Covenant, or, of the actual Ark of the Covenant itself.”

This isn’t a news story. The Ethiopians have said for centuries the Ark of the Covenant is in a closely-guarded building in Axum (I’ve been there, you can’t get in to see it). Also the “scholar” at the head of the organization mentioned has no archeology degree; he’s an ex-policeman and real estate salesman who has made all sorts of ridiculous claims about finding various bible-related objects. He’s not a scholar and didn’t “discover” anything that hadn’t been widely speculated on for decades. Best not to trust the folks over at Sputnik. Zero-star rating (your scale below doesn’t seem to… Read more »

Judaism as any kind of cultic religion has been dead for millenia, so the ark, if even a real relic, is irrelevant and should be disassembled for scrap. Only the codifying of the Commandments is what matters, and we know what they say already.

Could not express it better.
On the top, the 10 commandments originate in Babylon.

And soon they will find the graves of Adam and Eve, proving that the humans are not coming from primate and the story of Noah and the downpour are true. The earth is only 5000 years old etc… LOOOOOOOOL. AMN=FAKE muslim news.

Everyone know that the Coran and the Bible (the most evil religions on Earth) is a plagiarism of the Sumerian and Babylonian’s culture, mythology.
