luke Posted October 11, 2013 Posted October 11, 2013 Keeping his eyes shut saved him because one is not supposed to look upon the Ark. It's part of the biblical background. It was a holy object and only the priests were supposed to carry it, etc., so the Nazi's were destroyed because they opened it and looked into it, etc. The part of Raiders that I always wonder about was--how did they get the ark back to the states? Could the two of them have carried it on their own? And even if they could have, wouldn't there still have been crew members on the Nazi submarine? I mean, not every single crew member would have gotten off the boat when they got to the island, right? And even if all the crew members had gotten off the boat, would Indy and Marion have been able to pilot the boat back to some kind of harbor or another ship or something? Now I'm wondering who came up with Amy's point--is that something that's been said online somewhere or did one of the writers come up with that idea or what? Oh I would guess that the writers found that point about Indy on the internet - I think that is where writers in Hollywood find A Lot of their ideas - LOL - I hadn't seen that point about Indy's relevance to the story before, but it is all over the internet now - best counter point I have seen is that without Indy destroying the plane, the ark would have been flown to Germany and not gone to the island - but even with that Indy bungled, because if that had happened the ark would have been opened in front of Hitler, destroying him and stopping WW II from happening.
