Enough politics. Let's get biblical

Archeological reports this week out of Israel speak of a cool finding.

Seems an item pertaining to the First Temple was discovered and it's referenced, albeit tangentially, in the bible.

A small stone seal belonging to the Temech family – servants of the First Temple who were exiled to Babylon following its destruction by the Babylonians in 586 BCE – was uncovered by an Israeli archeologist.

That's pretty neat, I think. Check out the full story here on the Jerusalem Post website.

Maybe they'll find the ark of the covenant soon too.

Now I feel like watching Indiana Jones again.

An absolutely wonderful find! Yet more conclusive proof to the Jewish people's ancestral right to Yerushalayim!

And also proof that archeology is a damned cool science.

They should have a slogan or something like, "If you dig it, they will come."
