The idea of the Ark of the Covenant really intrigues me. If it is real, I would want it to be found for the sake of finding out if it exists. Having seen Raiders of the Lost Ark, I do not underestimate its awesome power and I do not seek to use it.
If it existed then it would be extremely dangerous to attempt to extract and possibly more dangerous to show to the world. Who can even begin to guess what would occur if humans found such a powerful artifact that actually solidifies the existence of a deity. That would be more than the scope of what I could even imagine.
