Last night I stayed up watching the 2-hour documentary “Quest for the Lost Ark” last night. It was interesting, detailing many different possible pathways to the Lost Ark, then having the narrator, Parfitt, reveal right at the end he’s found the Lost Ark, and it’s in Zimbabwe. So, he send in a film crew to record and detail it, and they show it, explain how this tribal drum is the Ark of the Covenant, and I’m all excited about it, until he says, “Well, I had it carbon dated, and it’s 600 years old.”
600 years old? And he’s saying, ‘I found it! Check it out!’? What a bunch of crap. I mean, this is as bad as Geraldo at Al Capone’s vault.
Lost Ark indeed.
