*** No one said he thought it was guaranteed to work, just that he was desperate enough under the circumstances to think that it was ''worth trying''. Had he managed to come away with the medallion, he doubtless would have thought his burnt hand was a price worth paying.

*** And the German soldiers use P40s and Lugers simply because, well, those are the guns that rightly or wrongly are often associated with the Wehrmacht in the 1930s and 1940s. For similar reasons why pretty much every 1930s Hollywood gangster ever has carried a Tommy gun. It's just what people expect (and likely just what the production crew had access to).

** Leaving aside the fact, wow, you guys who apparently would rather watch Indiana Jones painstakingly document the ins and outs of the inner workings of an ancient temple instead of be chased by a giant boulder when he tries to steal a gold icon clearly have different tastes in adventure films than I do, it is hardly impossible that he might be interested in both. But the thing is, he can come ''back'' to the temple. He now knows where it is, he now knows how to get there, and while it might not necessarily be the easiest journey ever it's not like the ancient stone temple is going to disappear any time soon. But the gold icon ''might'', because it is small and (comparatively) easily stolen, and it is ''also'' valuable, and is much easier to transport back home as an example of the ancient culture he is visiting than a fuck-off huge ancient stone temple filled with death traps. So he grabs the gold icon ''now'', and leaves the rest of the temple as something he can come back and document another time.

* Why is there so many people convinced that this takes place during WW2? The movie legends are clear: 1936, 1935 and 1938. So really, there should not be any problem for the Nazis to dig in Egypt or for an American to move freely through Italy and Germany (as long as they don't see him murdering people).

** Also, I just thought once you chose to look at the Arc you simply CAN'T stop looking.

** Maybe God just likes a bit of irony: 'Well, I could intervene and stop these guys from dying incredibly gruesome deaths... but hey, Free Will. Hands are tied.'

*** That “AlternateHistory” theory seems more like a WMG that canon, as there’s nothing in-universe that suggest such a thing, especially not in taking to account the prequel series YoungIndianaJonesChronicles that clearly happens in our history.

** If worth something, I thing one of the (crazy) Nazi theories is that modern Jews are descendants of converted Khazars and that the ancient Israelites were Aryans or something like that, therefore, an “Israelite Rite” wouldn’t be entirely contradictory to Nazis, at least not for those that held that believe.

*** The theological doctrine that says Jews are still the Chosen People alongside Christians is known as Dual-covenant theology and is follow mostly by Evangelical Christians, especially in America, whilst the doctrine that Jews are no longer the Chosen People and only Christians are known as Supersessionism is offical of the Catholic Church, Orthodox Church and most of the European Protestan Churches. As such is not a matter of the 30s or just Catholic, here in Europe is much more common that position.
