Biblical war revealed on
2,800-year-old stone altar

Original Article

Posted By: M2, 8/29/2019 10:21:31 AM

A 2,800-year-old inscribed stone altar, found within a Moabite sanctuary in the ancient city of Ataroth in Jordan, may shed light on an ancient biblical war. The altar bears two inscriptions. The words are in the Moabite language and script, while the numerals in the inscriptions are in Hieratic (an Egyptian writing system). The altar appears to date to a time after Mesha, king of Moab, successfully rebelled against the Kingdom of Israel and conquered Ataroth (sometimes spelled Atarot), a city that the Kingdom of Israel had controlled. By this time, Israel had broke in two with a northern kingdom that retained the name Israel and a southern kingdom called Judah.

Definitely an historical artifact. What are the odds that Muslims will blow it up?

OP, right on. It was one said that an archaeologist in the Holy Land should go to work with a shovel in one hand and the Bible in the other as a reliable guide. The Scriptures are continually validated by extant writings. Don't look for this to show up on the MSM.

"When the king of Moab saw that the battle had gone against him, he took with him seven hundred swordsmen to break through to the king of Edom, but they failed. Then he took his firstborn son, who was to succeed him as king, and offered him as a sacrifice on the city wall. The fury against Israel was great; they withdrew and returned to their own land." 2 Kings 3:26-27

Interesting, but some pretty terrible grammar sprinkled throughout this article. "Israel had broke in two...." REALLY? And that got past an EDITOR?

Reaction came swiftly on Thursday, after the Justice Department inspector general released a report saying that former FBI Director James Comey failed to live up to his responsibility to protect sensitive information. And by using sensitive information to force the appointment of a special prosecutor, the OIG found that Comey "set a dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI employees -- and the many thousands more former FBI employees -- who similarly have access to or knowledge of non-public information." "I wouldn’t say James Comey is out of the woods," Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) said. "We're in the pregame show. This is just the beginning," Jay Sekulow, President Trump's attorney said.

Netflix is prepping a series loosely based on a book recounting Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaigns, according to a report from the Hollywood Reporter. The series – The Girls on the Bus – is an adaption of New York Times journalist Amy Chozick’s book recounting Clinton’s failed campaigns, titled Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns and One Intact Glass Ceiling. The book, published last year, details Clinton’s presidential aspirations dating back to her first bid, losing to former President Barack Obama in the Democrat primary of 2008.

I feel sorry for my nine-year-old niece, who is about to start fourth grade in the Chicago Public School System. According to the Chicago Tribune, Illinois has passed a law requiring that "the history curriculum in public schools include lessons on [sic] the contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in Illinois and the United States. The lessons must be taught to students before they complete the eighth grade." The law is set to go into effect in 2020. Question 1: Why is someone's sexuality important to history? That's the same question Illinois state representative Tom Morrison (R) asked. "How or why is an historical figure's sexuality

The Democratic National Committee recently passed a resolution extolling the values and virtues of "religiously unaffiliated" Americans, noting that they constitute the "largest religious group within the Democratic Party." Ironically, most of those in the "largest religious group" in the Democratic Party are utterly irreligious except for their belief in big government — and their own infallibility. The resolution praising the ungodly was passed unanimously at the DNC's August 24 meeting, appropriately held in San Francisco, California. This elated the Secular Coalition of America, an organization that lobbies for public policy benefiting agnostics, atheists, and humanists.

The Supreme Court will hear a pivotal case in October on sex, gender identity, and discrimination: R.G. and G.R. Harris Funeral Homes Inc. v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Portland State University is punishing Peter Boghossian for demonstrating that grievance studies are nonsense. Dr. Boghossian, an assistant professor of philosophy at Portland State, joined two other academics to hoax the purveyors of gender studies and kindred fields committed to turning personal gripes into taxpayer-funded “studies.” Boghossian and his colleagues submitted articles including an analysis of “canine rape culture” and an extract from “Mein Kampf” translated into the language of feminist theory. These were accepted by what counts as “major” journals in these pseudo-disciplines. In 2018, Boghossian and his colleagues made public these hoaxes,

It’s like a Babylon Bee story, but it really happened: The Democratic National Committee (DNC) passed a resolution Saturday praising the values of “religiously unaffiliated” Americans as the “largest religious group within the Democratic Party.” The resolution, which was unanimously passed at the DNC’s summer meeting on Aug. 24 in San Francisco, Calif., was championed by the Secular Coalition of America, an organization that lobbies on behalf of atheists, agnostics, and humanists on public policy. The group celebrated the DNC’s move as the first time a major party “embraced American nonbelievers.”

Two years ago, former FBI Director James Comey came out with a book celebrating himself as a paragon of “ethical leadership,” a subject that he later taught at the College of William and Mary. Comey declared, “Ethical leaders lead by seeing above the short term, above the urgent or the partisan, and with a higher loyalty to lasting values, most importantly the truth.” If so, the new Justice Department inspector general report released Thursday establishes that Comey is the very antithesis of the ethical leader he described.

Recent polls have shown that most Americans believe that homosexuals are “born that way” rather than become gay as the result of environmental factors. In fact, perpetuating the belief that sexual orientation is innate has been crucial to the gay rights movement. According to the most recent Gallup Poll on the subject, 88 percent of people who believe homosexuals are “born that way” support the legality of same-sex marriage, while only 39 percent of those who believe homosexuality is the result of environmental factors support the legality of same-sex marriage. So, what happens when science proves that homosexuals aren’t “born that way”?

The strengthening storm churned over the warm, open waters of the Atlantic on Thursday, upgrading to Category 2 strength late in the day, with maximum sustained winds of 105 mph, the National Hurricane Center reported. Forecasts showed Dorian tracking toward Florida's east coast — prompting Trump to warn Dorian "will be BIG!" Forecasters believe the storm will strengthen into a Category 3 hurricane by Friday, and stay well east of the southern and central Bahamas before making a turn toward Florida by Sunday afternoon.
