Yes, but Greek Mythology is, well mythology. The word of the lord however, isn't.
Its all mytholgy buddy, ain't nothing to be ashamed of. Metaphor and allegory, it was never ment to be literal. God itself is a metaphor for your true self, thats what it means to have god inside you. You have to look within yourself to find god.

Psst: 2011.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Necroposting can be a bit of a drag unless there is something to add.

The Israel Museum has been lambasted previously for not providing more extensive access to the fragile and damaged files. Now, global admittance to the files is being provided online. The Israel Museum and Google have combined to supply the access to these documents.

This is a solid compromise between the desire to make this information available and the reality that one cannot simply allow the handling of this original material. It is far too fragile. I am reminded of George Athas' comment that the finest photography of an inscription is not as good as actually seeing the artifact. But I'm not sure that applies to this kind of digital photography and I can't see any alternative.


BTW, Leigh and Baigent are full of shit.

Pffft, cyber scrolls. I saw the real things. They were really old, almost as old as [insert name of middle-aged forum member].
