They Continue To Pick Up Trinkets

from the Temple Mount excavations.

A rare amulet more than 3,200 years old bearing the name of the Egyptian ruler Thutmose III, Pharaoh of the Eighteenth Dynasty (who reigned from 1479 – 1425 BC) has been discovered at the Temple Mount Sifting Project located in Jerusalem’s Tzurim Valley National Park within earth discarded from the Temple Mount.



Obviously worth doing even though no earth-shaking finds have been made.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

Usually people believe what they want to believe until reality intrudes.

I had blissfully forgotten that thread.

You can't imagine how unimpressive that bible bullshit seems now, 7 years later.

I can understand how facts about ancient religious texts can be upsetting
to a devout person such as yourself, min. :twisted:

But if you'll note carefully, there is no mention of the Old Testament
in the first part of that post on Bronze Age Chronology. 8)

Or, would be if only there were any!
