London, England (PRWEB) February 22, 2006
Fortean Times magazine, the leading journal of strange phenomena, reveals for the first time in 3,000 years the truth behind the Bible's mysterious Ark of the Covenant.
Until Steven Spielberg’s Indiana Jones blockbuster Raiders of the Lost Ark brought the Ark of the Covenant to a mass audience, this ancient mystery was only known through the cryptic old pages of the Old Testament in the Bible. Here, the Ark is described as containing the awesome destructive powers of a jealous and vengeful God – but what was the real source of the Ark’s lethal powers, and how was it harnessed by Moses and his priests?
In this exclusive article, Michael Blackburn and Mark Bennett use the bible itself as a research source and cleverly decode the design of the Ark of the Covenant, revealing that it was an ancient form of the modern electrical device called a capacitor, capable of storing vast amounts of potentially deadly electricity. This technology has been a staple of modern science since the 18th century, but the author’s analysis and explanation of this extraordinary piece of apparatus shows that knowledge of electricity was being used 3,000 years ago to create a ‘shock and awe’ style demonstration of the power of God.
‘Re-engineering the Ark’ is the first serious documentation upon the subject and explains just how it really is possible to catch the power of God in a jar, and demonstrates how we might be able to rebuild the Ark today.
‘Re-engineering the Ark’ is an in-depth and comprehensive study of the Ark of the Covenant, in both an academic/scientific sense and also from a metaphorical angle, which looks at the implications of the concept of the Ark in relation to religion and mankind’s own evolution as a species. As such, further information on ‘Re-engineering the Ark’ may be obtained in differing formats, i.e. as a solely scientific piece, as a fully comprehensive and complete study, or even as a condensed and simplified ‘pop science’ synopsis.
Articles Key Points:
- The Ark of the Covenant was made by man for a specific purpose
- it is part of a much, much larger machine
- it did not contain the power of God but naturally occurring electricity
- it is possible to re-build the Ark using Old Testament information
- the technology of the Ark is now a staple of modern electronics
- implications of findings are more controversial than the Da Vinci Code
