A Wiki article on the Elephantine Papiri, and a Temple of YHWH in Egypt, which might indicate a fulfilled Isaiah scripture.

Some more evolution related news:

I hope this doesn't get misrepresented by certain folks as representing a scientific rejection of evolution  ::)

It will when they say stuff like “Our work shows that evolution wants to be diverse,” anthropomorphising the process.

But isn't this just genetic drift? Some of the comments suggest that the article has over-simplified the original paper.

We didn't start the fire...

Well, its a popular press magazine - it kinda has to be simplified for non-scientists like me to understand it  ;)

 “A throwaway detail in the Old Testament turns out to be accurate and true. I think that it means that the whole of the narrative takes on a new kind of power.”

Wishful thinking and ignores shit loads of evidence showing much of the OT narrative to be bogus.

Actually, it is quite interesting. It would be more interesting if they'd quoted the pasage from Jeremiah.

Plus of course we've no way of knowing if it was a common name, or if it was a title - in which case it isn't necessarily the same person.

However, there's nothing wrong with accepting that some of the details in the OT are accurate - after all, Baker Street really exists.

Found it

Jeremiah 39:3 And all the princes of the king of Babylon came in, and sat in the middle gate, even Nergalsharezer, Samgarnebo, Sarsechim, Rabsaris, Nergalsharezer, Rabmag, with all the residue of the princes of the king of Babylon.

I didn't say all the details were bogus. EG there was a place called Jericho but it didn't fall like the Bible states.
