If you read just a little about the reign of Solomon, he used to received tons upon tons of gold every year. He made entire large objects out of pure gold. Things like the world has never even seen.

It has been said that all the gold in the world (today) would only fill a small swimming pool.

Doesn't this story sound a little strange? Wouldn't there have been some record of this type of wealth in the small nation of Israel if it had been true? Or even if it had had a kernel of truth?

Do you really believe this story was factual?

yes, he had a lot of gold. he was probably very rich compared to the people around him.

Yes, they exaggerated the story.

As far as the amount of gold today filling a pool?
that's just shows what they don't know.

Since the Vatican is covered with a load of Gold, Israel should sue them to return all the Gold they stole centuries ago.

There is currently around 3,100,000 pounds of gold so you may want to recalculate what you think it fills.

Actually, if you take a closer look at the projects that are funded in Egypt.

I forget, is this the total mass on the planet. Or what has been mined. A mined equivalent to the total mass would be fun to know.

Oh well.

14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Warren Buffet Quotes:
Gold gets dug out of the ground in Africa, or someplace. Then we melt it down, dig another hole, bury it again and pay people to stand around guarding it. It has no utility. Anyone watching from Mars would be scratching their head.”
