First off, I call shenannigans on the story.

Carbon dating won't do much good if there's no organic material to test. If it's a solid gold or something, carbon dating would be worthless.
Perhaps the wooden shafts used to carry it, if they're still around, but I doubt it. Of course, that would only prove that the poles are that old...
not the container itself or it's contents. Perhaps something like U-Pb zircon dating, though I'm not really familiar with that dating method and it
might not apply.
Whatever the case - I hope they do present something, and offer it up to scrutiny. Either it'll be revealed as a fraud or a replica - with many lulz
to follow from the religious community... or it'll fry someone's face off. Either way, it should be a good time. If it does shoot lightning and
magic death rays - I say we hook that bastard up to a generator and use it to help solve the energy crisis with divine energy.
Also... lol... it supposedly contain the tablets with the 10 commandments on them, and it shoots fire and death at anyone who touches/looks at/opens
it. That's the hardcore OT god for ya right there. The ultimate "pain box".
Ohh! Ohh! Here's a fantas... er.. conspiracy theory for you guys. The entire Abrahamic religion is false. The Ark is really Pandora's Box - into
which one of it's original and most powerful evils was sealed by it's other occupant.. hope... Jesus Christ. The whole Jewish/Christian/Islamic
trinity is just a sham to mischaracterize "Hope" and re-open Pandora's Box... letting the pain and blinding light and fire a wrathful OT god/demon
out among the world once again as he was in old days of sanctified genocide, rape, slavery, incest, oppression, and genital mutilation.
THATS the reason he doesn't appear to exist! He's evil and has been trapped in a box for the last 2,000 years!
