I did a little more research on the Ark of the Covenant, and found a nice and fairly extensive history at The Learning Channel/Discovery.com:
I found this part particularly interesting, as it again seems to go along with the story of Halo:
''The Bible mentions the Ark for the last time in Jeremiah 3:16, when it is noted that "when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith the Lord, they shall say no more, The Ark of the covenant of the Lord neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more."''
This goes along with "The Ark Theory", in that if the Forerunner really were humans, they could have forgotten all about the Halo(s) as they expanded into the Galaxy.
That darned Ark of the Covenant returns like that insistent beeping of low shields on Legendary.
