Tsk. Tsk. Tsk.
When will people ever learn?

I think Graham Hancock's theory in "Underworld" that the flood (tales of which can be found amongst numerous cultures - the Sumerian Gilgamesh epic etc.) was related to the large scale glacial melting at the end of the last age has some merit.

The difficult thing for me to wrap my tiny insignificant brain around is where did the water go? 4000m of water above today's current sea levels to place this "Ark" on a mountain has to go somewhere? I believe if an "Ark" did exist we would find it close or around today's current sea levels. 4000m of water on a localized level is unfathomable. 4000m on a regional level is beyond unfathomable. That much water would have to come from somewhere. Ice Age couldn't account for that much water. 4000m of water just doesn't evaporate overnight, let alone 4800 years. The water that is here on earth today has taken millions of years to develop. I guess after the great flood, God asked Mel Brooks for his Mega-Maid and sucked up all the excess water.

Was the Ark of the Covenant also a passenger on Noah's Ark?
Firstly, as a recent joiner on my first post, apologies if i do not fulfil the high standards I see from other members. I have not yet learnt how to tag in posts from other threads!
Based on my reading of other threads I have an undiscussed build that I believe requires investigation. Hopefully those well versed in Egyptian, Sumerian and earlier writings can provide some input.
Please bear with my route of analysis as it will avoid the simple rebuff that the Ark of the Covenant wasn't built til after the flood...
Immediately following my reading of Ark of the Covenant threads, I moved to this one.
It intrigued me that the Giza pyramids date to around the same time as the flood chronology... also that the Ark of the covenant may have been housed in one of the pyramids. One thread implied that Moses stole the Ark of the Covenant but that it had existed prior to this and was used by previous civilisations.
The implication is that the Ark of the covenant may have existed before the flood?
If the Ark of the covenant was given to man (or hybrid man/god/aliens) and Noah was warned of the flood by god/aliens... then wouldn't that same advisor have told Noah to take the Ark of the Covenant aboard the Noah's Ark?
My question, therefore, is...
Do any of the many versions of the flood and survival Ark story mention taking a precious weapon or god/alien communication device (Ark of the Covenant) on the boat Ark, to ensure it survived the flood?

Like a dodgy chicken curry the ark story just keeps coming up.
My reply to all those who believe in it is simple; I say the same to perpetual engine believers, Atlantis lovers and those who think the ancients used vibrations.
Find it and prove it, flapping your jaws on it will not improve the situation - go find it.
