Re: "God's Gold" on Digging for the Truth

As is usual, my post was written in a confused...yet entirely charming manner.....My reference to the 4th dynasty related to the construction of the pyramids not the ark.....

I do take, respectfully, issue with your reference to gold as a source of wealth.....Gold and other currencies are not sources of wealth...they are symbols of it...wealth is created when man utilizes the resources of the earth....farming, construction, arms manufacturing and the like....

This does not conflict with your assessment of ancient (and perhaps current) war being based in a profit (more accurately greed/fear)motive....there is, genarally speaking, a tremendous amount of wealth that accrues to the benefit of the victor (i suspect that the manufacture of shields and swords picked up in wartime vis a vis peacetime...somewhat like the current manufacture of M1A1s and Apache Helicopters today).

Give Peace a chance!!! But don't short sell the stocks of arms manufacturers just yet.
