A bundle of new discoveries on a rocky hill in Israel may upend the community of Biblical historians struggling to understand Judah in the time of King David. Professor Yosef Garfinkel from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a team of archaeologists have been excavating the ancient city of Khirbet Qeiyafa, and have recently unearthed a trio of cultic shrines that date back to the time of King David. Along with stone and metal tools, pottery and art objects, the site provides the first evidence of a cult at the time of King David. Based on the archaeologists' analysis, the religious practices of the cult also match the traditions described in the Bible.

"This is the first time that archaeologists uncovered a fortified city in Judah from the time of King David. Even in Jerusalem we do not have a clear fortified city from his period. Thus, various suggestions that completely deny the biblical tradition regarding King David and argue that he was a mythological figure, or just a leader of a small tribe, are now shown to be wrong," Garfinkel told Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He explained that radiometric measurements performed at Oxford dated the artifacts to around 1020 to 980 BC, 30 to 40 years before the construction of King Soloman's temple. "Over the years, thousands of animal bones were found, including sheep, goats and cattle, but no pigs. Now we uncovered three cultic rooms, with various cultic paraphernalia, but not even one human or animal figurine was found. This suggests that the population of Khirbet Qeiyafa observed two biblical bans - on pork and on graven images - and thus practiced a different cult than that of the Canaanites or the Philistines."

Of course, not everybody buys Garfinkel's conclusions about the findings. Hershel Shanks, editor of The Biblical Archaeology Review, called the discovery of the shrines "extremely interesting" in an interview with the Christian Post on Tuesday, but added, "The unfortunate thing is we don't have enough information ... to be all confident of the conclusions that Yosef Garfinkel is drawing." Skepticism over the meaning of the discoveries at Khirbet Qeiyafa is not a new thing. Other archaeologists have been arguing against the significance of Garfinkels findings at Khirbet Qeiyafa for years, pointing out how the inscriptions found in the fortified city fail to mention David and linking the community to Biblical narrative simply amounts to wishful thinking.

Archeologist have been kicked in the head on their claims of human civilization formation in the last several years... Evidence that has been found at Giza and Gobekli Tepe along with the several large cities found far out in the sea tells a completely different story of civilization than has been given by them...

I am coming to the view that there was a Highly advanced civilization that was completely wiped out at the end of the last ice age.. And I think that there was a crustal shift of the earth crust which explains why we find so little evidence on the parts of the earth man inhabits today...

Crustal Shift explains so much of what we have started to find in the lst few years...

I think that in the near future, we will continue to find more and more evidence supporting biblical history as well as other events that are considered legend. Im of a view that even the roman and greek goddesses of myth were perhaps fallen angels that set themselves up as " gods " here on earth, having the power of flight and superior strength and lifespan, and their union with men (and sometimes animals as quoted in the books of Enoch), created many hybrid creatures of myth, and perhaps the " mighty men, men of reknown " that are mentioned in Genesis. I believe that God relieved the earth of their influence and presence when he produced the flood, though they were still worshipped by those who remembered the " legends" They thought Troy was a myth until they discovered what they are are almost positive to be the Troy of legend. But they all succumbed evenually to the truth of God and Chistianity

Oh,I think he got a boner. I bet you think that was so witty you had to write it. Think what you want, brother. It says in the Bible that there were giants in the earth , and dragons too. The fact is that i use a LOT of research, incuding scripture study , to collaberate science, myth and religion to find the truth. You probably dont even know what i just said so i'll leave it at that. Dont even try to school me, brother. All respect but ive probably read more books in the last month than you have in your life,( i travel a lot so i read alot )and its my business to know scripture.If you have anything intelligent to add, feel free to cough it up, otherwise bitt out of stuff you dont understand. Im off to the fights tonite, so be good , people

This is so very true. If science can't quite explain something, it was most definitely God....lol

LOL, something like that. Actually brother, i think some things were just meant to always stay out of our reach, like the tree of life. I wish u could feel the holy spirit just once then youd know. Your a good man, and i shudder at the thought of u in hell.Have a good day, and i hope u and specialist find that proof you need to bring u to faith.
