I recently posted a blog entry giving general information about some work I have been conducting regarding concealed geometry in Renaissance paintings and prints entitled Rennes-le-Chateau/Oak Island Connection. I am now adding this new entry which is more to the point.
If you were to name the most sought after artifact in the world you would probably narrow it down to either the "Holy Grail" or the Ark of the Covenant. Since a very good case has been made, by Graham hancock in his book The Sign and the Seal, that the Holy Grail is actually a codename for the Ark of the Covenant, you could narrow it down to that artifact alone. Even if there really IS such a thing as a Holy Grail, there would really be no way of identifying it as such rather than simply a chalice of unknown origin.
Now, since Mr. Hancock has already done a very nice job of tracking the Ark to Ethiopia, in the above mentioned book, all we need do is deduce what hapened to it after it left Ethiopia, as it most certainly must have because there is no reason whatsoever to believe that the Ethiopians still possess the Ark. The most obvious reason to believe it was removed from Ethiopia is the reluctance of the Ethiopians to show the Ark itself or even a photograph of it. Being an impoverished nation, proof of the Ark's presence would make it the number one Holy site on the planet and draw huge amounts of tourism income.
So the questions now are who removed the Ark and where did they take it? In order to answer these questions we must look for clues. Are there any major unsolved lost treasure mysteries in the world which may conceivably involve this artifact? Why yes, there just happen to be two very well known and officially unsolved lost treasure mysteries that come to mind. The Rennes-le-Chateau mystery involves what is purportedly the treasure of Jerusalem (or "Sion") and has never had a convincing solution proposed as to the location of the treasure in any publication. Althougfh a crude attempt was made in the book The Tomb of God, it was so rife with flaws that no intelligent person could take it seriously. Although some of the geometric figures in the book were actually used by the people who were most likely involved in concealing the treasure, this geometry was not applied in a convincing and believable manner to pinpoint a plausible treasure location.
The Oak Island mystery is nother major unsolved treasure story. This time, they started with a treasure site, which was basically "stumbled" upon in 1795, and then tried to figure out what was contained therein and how to access it. There are reasons to believe that this site may be the final resting place of the Ark.
Now come the part which most people will probably find difficult to believe, but is nonetheless factual. A very solid case can be made that both of these unsolved mysteries, Rennes-le-Chateau and Oak Island, are actually parts of a single scenario and that the Ark of the Covenant is at the heart of the whole thing.
By solving the two paintings which hold the clues to the Rennes-le-Chateau mystery and also solving the Oak Island Cross (a huge "treasure sign" on Oak Island) I have been able to establish beyond reasonable doubt, in my opinion, that the Ark of the Covenant was buried on Oak Island and is still there at this very time.
