The Gold of Exodus - 03/03/98
Simon & Schuster are currently selling a new book, called 'The Gold of Exodus'
for around $25.
Author Howard Blum claims the location of historic Mount Sinai is at the
southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula located in Saudi Arabia. The local name
for the mountain is Jabal Al Lawz.
10 years ago, researchers Larry Williams and Bob Cornuke decided to try to
locate the 'real' Mount Sinai. They claim to have succeeded and to have
verified several points of Biblical reference. They report finding the 'land
bridge' that crosses the Red Sea, used by Moses and his people to escape the
pursuing Egyptian hordes.
During the Exodus, Moses set up pillars and boundary stones which were found
by explorers Cornuke and Williams. Even the alter Aaron used for the worship
of the Golden Calf has been found, decorated with drawings of cows.
Cornuke and Williams were originally intending to locate the massive amounts
of gold taken by the Israelites when they left Egypt. None of this gold was
found, but they do believe to have confirmed the accuracy of the Biblical Book
Other disturbing findings reported in the book are that the Chinese and
Saudi's have built a nuclear base in the Mount Sinai area, even providing
evidence of involvement by the U.S. Air Force.
This spectacular book and story are currently being made into a movie along
the lines of Indiana Jones. 'The Gold of Exodus' is available in most book
