An interesting archaeological discovery that may force some historians to rewrite their theories on early state formation:

www.theglobeandmail.com...

"Yet by coincidence, Prof. Adams of Hamilton's McMaster University says, he and an international team of colleagues fit into place a significant piece of the puzzle of human history in the Middle East -- unearthing information that points to the existence of the Bible's vilified Kingdom of Edom at precisely the time the Bible says it existed, and contradicting widespread academic belief that it did not come into being until 200 years later.

"Their findings mean that those scholars convinced that the Hebrew Old Testament is at best a compendium of revisionist, fragmented history, mixed with folklore and theology, and at worst a piece of outright propaganda, likely will have to apply the brakes to their thinking."

I'm always entertained when academics/intellectuals go out of their way to dismiss people who believe in what the academy considers purely mythological things... and then a dedicated researcher comes along who just happens to turn up evidence for such 'folk tales'.

good lord, there has to be something wrong with the damn search engine... either that or the surplus of vague thread titles is making it impossible to sort out what has or has not been said already if you haven't got time to read the whole board.
