I find it very convenient that none of the claims made by so called discoverers of various articles; the Ark of the Covenant, Noah’s Ark, etc., can produce definitive proof. I have no problem with people’s belief in various religious texts, but please if you are going to make these types of claims provide some sort of proof. I believe in evolution because proof of various adaptations allowing survival of the fitist exists. Until there is definitive proof the Bible (written a hundred years after the death of Christ) is merely the story of a man who started a movement and belief system which has persisted for many years.
I thinks its possible “ The Beast of Exmoor” could be an escaped zoo animal or even an exotic pet that somone let go. I’m a fan of cryptozoology so I take an interest in arcticles such as this.
I agree with Tsurugi! If the evidence is plausible then the possibility that these “ Negev Desert dwellers” were in fact the ancient Israelites shouldn’t be ignored by archeologists.
I wouldn't waste one more second on Mr. O'brien's nonsense. There is no he article in verse 4 in either of the times the Name is used. ". . . then elohim should mean ‘gods’; and ha elohim should mean ‘the gods.’ "Should mean?" This is not scholarship, but speculation trying to prove a pet doctrine. All Scripture is God breathed (2 Tim. 3:16) including Gen. 1 & therefore w/o error. If he took Hebrew, he should get his money back. Elohim reveals Himself as Creator to Moses. Since Moses was given the original divine revelation directly from Elohim the Creator (Jesus Christ, cf. Jn. 20:28, Jn. 1:3; Col. 1:16; Heb. 1:2), he wrote what Elohim told him to write as superintended by the Spirit of Christ. The Trinity spoke within Himself, "Let us make . . ." What difference does it make how YHWH is pronounced? Besides, YHWH is His covenant Name (Ex. 3). Elohim is the plural of majesty, but the Trinity is manifesting itself at creation. There is also divine mystery here, & Mr. Obrien needs to respect that & not speak/wrote so foolishly. Apparently, if Mr. O'brien doesn't understand how/why Genesis 1 was written as it was, then only he has the right to question God, who must submit Himself to Mr. O'brien's "wisdom." The heavenly court was promoted by Meredith Kline in the Framework Hypothesis. Mr. O'brien is reading someone else's mail when he reads the Bible.
It seem as though I always tend to attract angry ignorant people to my posts because the truth really hurts them the most...
It is Fake made out of Brass. It was NEVER made in Ancient Rome.
In reply, I think I'll just quote part of your first sentence.
"Ignorant minded people always post their ignorant racist beliefs..."
Couldn't agree more with the concluding paragraphs. Well said.
Many see what they want to see. When we first saw the 'face' on Mars, I couldn't believe the intelligence, or lack of it, from thousands of people thinking it was anything more than the sun on a piece of rock, but there we have it.
This article is full of lies:
1) As Catalan I must say that our lenguage is spoken today in Catalonia for around 3 million people, thnaks to the supporting effort of Spain...please be careful with figures
2) In the 8th century there was a muslim invasion in all the territory of Spain, Barcelona was also muslim for about 100 years and Carlomagno and the french people call Cathalaunic to the same territoryof Castle ...Castilla de central de region of Spain, so that Cathalaunic means "Spain". Ples read an inform yourself a little bit more
3) Never exist such athing like an "independent" county as tthe counties were parto France first and Aragon Kingdom later, to read some Spanish history could be convenient....and so on, so on
forgot to add that whoever wrote this article didnt do a good job. At all. I mean the name of the site is rediscovering humanit's past....
The original version of Adam and Eve is NOT from the hebrew bible but around 800 years older and was found on clay tablets in Ugarit.
It was simply copied and parts altered (made misognystic) where necessary.
Does this prove that the Genesis is not the word of god? Very likely. ;)
Breathe in. Then breathe out. You have just pronounced God's name. Ugh! Tsk Tsk Tsk. YHWH. Sigh.
"The washed-up artifacts dated to around 90 BC, a time when the Roman Empire ruled the Anatolia region and before it became Byzantine under Islamic rule."
The Byzantine and Islamic/Ottoman periods in the history of this region are distinct. The Byzantine period refers to the period after the administrative division of the Roman Empire into East and West and after the collapse of the Western portion. The Byzantines never called themselves this as they were "Romans." It is a construct of convenience among historians. The Byzantine Empire was Christian, specifically the Eastern Orthodox Church. It was never Islamic. Please correct your article.
Yes, unfortunately it is not available on kindle. But you can read a lot more about their work here: www.goldenageproject.org.uk
I know only one thing. The world deserves to see the Tomb of Alexander. I would also like to see the Tomb of a man who visited India in BC. It's surprising that the discovery may lead to complications in Greece. What is so complicated with a man who died centuries ago? Let the actual occupant of the Tomb be revealed to the world. Greece may also get benefit from it in terms of money along with the government of Egypt. Why to keep whole world waiting when it will be surely excavated sometime in future? Nothing remains hidden forever.
Interesting article. I wish their book was available as a kindle as I would like to read more on this subject
I'll give you another translation. When I say the word "you" when talking about you, do I only mean the conscious mind? Don't we all have a Subconscious, Conscious and Superconscious mind. So when talking about an entity of over 2000 years ago man didn't have and science at the time could he have been trying to put things into context. Could Elohim, be in fact an entity composed of many conscious minds. I mean man could have literally written "And God made man to look like Him", but he didn't, he wrote down, "So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them." Could image be really DNA image, but man of 2000 years ago didn't have the context to write about DNA. Wouldn't it have been easier to say God made man to look like Him if that was the real meaning?
Similar problem where I live. Catamounts (mountain lions) are supposed to be extinct here despite numerous eye witness reports and photos and despite the admission on the QT by wildlife rangers.
In the christian "Record of the Nephites" there is written about an ancient civilation in that area which was destroyed at the time of the Tower of Babylon.
The famous Father Crespi got alot of stuff from indians from kept secret underground tunnels and caves which belonged to ancient civilation.
This material is judged to be mostly babylonian style and in theRecord of the Nephites there is written "at the time of the Tower of Babylon".
At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.
The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.
We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.
By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
