Oooooo ahhhhhhh ...(I don't care what you DON'T think-stuff like this is STILL cool!!!!)<quoted text>
I didn't say Spider-Man disproves the Bible. I said the fact that the Bible has real places names does not prove it's stories are true.
You hear people make the claim all the time. Oh, they dug up some city in the desert that is mentioned in Julio 2:15.
Who cares? Did they dig up a god too? Because that would be impressive.
JERUSALEM, Israel -- Every year Israeli archaeologists dig up more artifacts which shed new light on Bible times. A museum that houses many of those ancient objects has been re-opened to the public.
The Israel Museum in Jerusalem first opened its doors in 1965. Now after three years of renovations, the museum is re-opening its unique treasure of archaeological artifacts, Judaica and fine art to the public.
"We're kind of a crossroads in the world," said James Snyder, the museum's director. "And certainly in ancient times this was so. But even after the western world entered the picture, somehow Jerusalem sits at the center of the universe. So ideally you could create an encyclopedic museum."
Snyder said the museum is the largest, most active museum in Israel's region of the world.
"What we have here in the end indeed is a really rich and strong universal collection of 500,000 objects beginning a million and half years ago and coming to contemporary art today," Snyder added.
Thousands of artifacts on display in the museum help to bring biblical times to life.
"The archaeology wing has a story to tell that you can't get anywhere else in the world," said Michal Dayagi-Mendels, chief curator of archaeology.
The wing focuses on story of the land of Israel through a narrative about man in the country - how he lived, whom he worshipped, and even how he was buried.
