I had heard of the cave of the patriarch's before, but I figured, there's nothing actually there.
Then I came across it looking at some other stuff, and found out that the believers say those things are buried there, and that there ARE actual remains reported as being buried there.
THats just astounding, I mean, WHOS in there, clearly not Adam and Eve, but who are they saying is Adam and Eve anyway?
Are they human remains?
That'd throw everyone for a loop eh?!
Or imagine if there was a genetic marker in the remains of 'abraham', that is also in modern jews and arabs (which of course would be likely anyway, since a person in that region, even of thousands of years ago, woudl like yhave some genes that are shared by the people of the region today).
And imagine if it could be shown that the remains of the children of abraham there could be actually shown genetically to be children of hte abraham remains?
Its just so fascinating, to think that these remains are actually there, and no one is doing anything with them. I mean, if we found the remains of Augustus (and we do have his masoleum, but its empty), we'd certainly want to test them all sorts of ways.
