Archaeologists Find More Evidence to Support Biblical Narrative

(AP Photo/Tara Todras-Whitehill)

"JERUSALEM – An Israeli archaeologist said Monday that ancient fortifications recently excavated in Jerusalem date back 3,000 years to the time of King Solomon and support the biblical narrative about the era.

If the age of the wall is correct, the finding would be an indication that Jerusalem was home to a strong central government that had the resources and manpower needed to build massive fortifications in the 10th century B.C.

That's a key point of dispute among scholars, because it would match the Bible's account that the Hebrew kings David and Solomon ruled from Jerusalem around that time.

While some Holy Land archaeologists support that version of history — including the archaeologist behind the dig, Eilat Mazar — others posit that David's monarchy was largely mythical and that there was no strong government to speak of in that era..."

Once again, I'm surprised at what the world has failed to know. I thought everybody knew this. But then again, not everybody realizes that faith can be reasonable and sometimes "reason" is really blind faith. I still have yet to see any archaeological or paleontological evidence of macroevolution that hasn't been revealed to be a hoax.

Prophecy Fulfilled - Evidence that Supports the Bible

From Proslogion, the blog of Dr. Jay L. Wile:

"Norwegian Shooter’s latest comment got me thinking about my journey from atheism to Christianity. As I look back on that journey, I realize how similar my experience was to that of Dr. Esther Su. As a scientist, I have to believe in things that are rational. As a result, when a girl who I wanted to date kept talking to me about Christianity, I dismissed it, because the brainwashing I had received from authors like Bertram Russell indicated that Christianity was not rational. Of course, as is the case with most brainwashing, that turned out to be 100% false, but it took me a while to figure that out.

This girl eventually took me to a debate between an atheist who was a scientist and a Christian who was a scientist. The debate was interesting, but what was more interesting was that the Christian gave several references that I could read to learn more about the shocking idea that Christianity is rational. I reluctantly looked into some of those references, and eventually, I learned that atheists had lied to me most of my life..."

One Nation Under GOD - State Preambles

From Ray Comfort's blog:
"The below is for those of you who are unwitting history revisionists--who believe that the United States was not founded as a Christian nation.

See if you can count how many States mention 'God,' 'Author of existence,' 'Supreme Ruler' and 'Almighty God'..."

A True Story Is A True Story

So let'em tell it!

Liberal women's groups et al are offended at the prospects of a Super Bowl ad featuring Tim Tebow and his mother, Pam. The reason? Because it is "likely to convey an anti-abortion message." In our ultra-sterile revisionist environment, more and more people appear to be developing an allergic reaction to history...
