Once again W T F!!!!
« on: November 17, 2016, 09:55:09 AM »

An originAl stone tablet of the ten commandments Has been auctioneD in the U S for $850.000!

Everyone here knows my version to Christianity but this is, to my mind anyway, sacrilege and I now truly believe that Americans will seell their own mothers, grandmothers and children if it will make then a buck or two and that someone else will actually buy them.

Surely given it was the Living Torah museum that sold this, it's a Jewish topic?

Where does it claim it is an "original"?
Apparently 99.9975% atheist because I believe in one out of 4000 believed in (an atheist on Facebook). Yes, check the maths as well.

Erm......'Original'? You mean someone found the bits that Moses wrecked and used superglue? Wow!

Mea culpa!

It states that it "It likely adorned the entrance of a synagogue that was destroyed by the Romans between A.D. 400 and 600, or by the Crusaders in the 11th century,".

I should probably - no, knowing the nit-pickers on here, I SHOULD have said "very early" or "ancient" - whatever appellation you apply to it there is, apparently, no version older!

So, it wasn't found by that well-known American archeologist, Prof. Henry Jones Jnr. was it?
