Significant Find by the Israel Antiquities Authority
Hmmm.....you don't seem to have an Archaeology Forum so this will have to do.

Quote:A 3,300 Year Old Coffin was Exposed Containing the Personal Belongings of a Wealthy Canaanite – Possibly an Official of the Egyptian Army

Among the items discovered – a gold signet ring bearing the name of the Egyptian pharaoh Seti I

The rare artifacts were uncovered during excavations by the Israel Antiquities Authority near Tel Shadud, prior to the installation of a natural gas pipeline to Ramat Gavriel by the Israel Natural Gas Lines Company

What is most important is:

Quote: The discovery of the coffin at Tel Shadud is evidence of Egyptian control of the Jezreel Valley in the Late Bronze Age (thirteenth century BCE). During the period when the pharaohs governed the country, Egyptian culture greatly influenced the local Canaanite upper class.

Somehow the fucking bible manages to miss this period of history altogether.

Very interesting, abd I was just watching a new video series on Jericho today. I can't believe I once believed in the word of the bable.

The requirement of evidence to back your claim does not disappear because it hurts your feelings, reality does not care about your feefees.

But of course. It wasn't written until 600-1000 years later.

Be careful, the Israeli government doesn't like the region's history being questioned.
