Ummmm me thinks you are perhaps a bit too cynical-that not ALL the world sits in plot and plan deception, and low-life-CON mode(s), that SOME of us find that very type of thing to be of the utmost nature of VILEness and CONtemptability, equatable to those having no ethics OR true decency per say?
Or is that just your own junk pointing back at ya? lol
WTH are you babbling about now? Are you posting just to watch yourself type? I asked a reasonable question about WHY you placed a list of archaeological sites and a quote from a museum spokesman.
Stalking you with judgits icons? no.

I've never had a fascination for the history of the Semitic tribes and the "Holy Lands," why should I cultivate one? Clearly you were enamored with the Naked Archaeologist series. I am not in the least bit intrigued. As you have pointed out, there are countless other cultures and far more than enough troves of other histories to entertain myself with, should I so choose to be entertained.
What ever floats your cultural boat. Yes, I did find that series to be one of the better presented ones of it's types (hmmm...wonder why..)

Anyway, care to share what cultures you may find "oooo ahhhh" interesting?

And be forewarned, you can skip the knotholes in carved rocks ones, they'll only get an eyeroll here.

2 Samuel 5:3,4
So all the elders of Israel came to the king to Hebron; and king David made a covenant with them in Hebron before HaShem; and they anointed David king over Israel.

4 David was thirty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned forty years.

Since 2007, Ronny Reich and Eli Shukron have been conducting a systematic excavation of the main water drainage tunnel of the city of Jerusalem from the Second Temple period. 700 meters inside the Tyropoeon Valley, which passes beneath the center of the city, have already been revealed. Work began in the center of the valley southwards and after it connected to the excavation near the Shiloah Pool, work continued north, beyond the walls of today’s Old City. This channel gathered water and drained it from the city of Jerusalem southwards, passing by the Shiloah Pool and outside the city. The channel also served as a place of refuge for the Jews who rebelled against the Romans. Found within the channel are numerous artifacts which tell the story of Jerusalem and its destruction. Amongst these finds are vessels and numerous coins including a shekel coin from the city of Tyre, a miniature golden bell that was sewn onto the garment of an individual of high stature, a Roman sword in its sheath, and a seal with the Aramaic words “Daka Le’Ya”(Pure for God), the official seal, it seems, used by Temple officials approving the purity of a sacrifice or object.

<quoted text>
Either the Universe was created by a Superior Intelligence or it came into existence,from nothing,by nothing.
If it came into existence from nothing,caused by nothing and from there we end up with the Universe as we currently know it.
Our planet and the life contained therein,all as a result of Nothing taking control and effectively bringing into existence this awesome universe and magnificent planet we live in.
Then I would have to proclaim,The wonders of nothingness are wonderful to behold
YOU ask "Yet faith is about faith, not evidence, right?"
Says I...You are wrong,but that is the propaganda that Atheists
promote"blind faith"
My faith demands evidence and that evidence has been more that amply supplied to my satisfaction,by GOD
You are unable to accept or understand the evidence that God has provided me and therefore you arbitrarily dismiss it as false.
You can call it magic,delusions,waving a magic wand,coincidences
What you are unable to do is,disprove it..
You can not believe,but neither can you disprove the evidence,your attempts are futile,therefore your frustration
Kind of hard to prove a negative like this.
You cannot prove Zeus does not control the rain. But I am sure this lack of proof does not keep your mind open to Zeus.

I explained that energy likely existed before the Big Bang, so their are more than two ways this could have gone down.
But you stick with "nothing". So what created this great and wonderful god of yours?
You keep skipping that part in your equation.

Non.
This is Bible study rules in schools thread, and I suspect that we agree that there is a place for employing the Bible as a historical reference/object in elective secondary education humanities courses.

So blame the Holy Ghost. No matter how you slice it, the ghost is failing to keep a consistent story line.
I think the various religions I was exposed to, taught me that lesson.
Their insistence of being the true religion was more damning than anything.
You insist your version is correct, the Muslims claim their way is correct and so on and so on.
This is evidence of all just being overly sure of themselves yet have zero evidence of being correct.

This doesn't reveal anything of importance beyond your infatuation with certain middle eastern archaeology. A pottery shard among the rocks or a bead in the sand? No one disputes that the Bible contains many of the histories of the Jewish peoples. It is well established and documented that the area has been populated for many thousands of years - an artifact does not prove that Jesus walked on water or that Moses parted the Red Sea. Relate something about the Sumerians or Zoroaster and it might be worth reading.

Yes I can grow a plant without it giving me a seed...

The Question was Chicken and Egg... Egg predates Chicken by Millions upon millions of years....

Pond Scum is assorted Bacterium and Phytoplankton and replicates without the requirement of giving birth...

A Rock does not have DNA.... But Living organisms in the rock does..

Information is understood by Intellect, But everything from a grain of sand to a Galaxy Give information as Information is nothing more the EM Waves being propagated, Everything produces EM waves...

Iknow you explained that energy likely existed before the BB.
What you could not explain is,Where did that Energy come from?
From nothing ness?,,,,
Nothing from nothing ,gets nothing

I absolutely believe there was an energy,an intelligent and living power source that brought the Universe and life as we kmow it ,into existence.
That question was answered long before Science thought to ask it.
I am that I am...I am the Alpha and Omega I am the begining and the end

Science began when the first human wondered for an answer, "How, when, why, where?" In pursuing those questions and without any real available answers, religion was born. Science predates religion. Religion predates writing. Writing predates Genesis. You've bought stock in the abyss of no real available answers. Sorry, Bub.

We use the KJV. What do you mean "unaltered Bible"?

Again.. Energy is not Nothing... It is just made up of No Things... You seem to have a problem mentally comprehending that basic idea... Matter and Energy are two versions of the same thing, one can be converted into the other and back and forth... Energy with out Matter is Something it just has No Things to define it...

You claim I could not explain where that energy could come from, so if I give an explanation, will you just move the goal post again and continue to assume energy plus the most complex and most intelligent being needed no creator?
