Discovery of, uh, biblical proportions
This is a fascinating story. An excerpt follows:
THE British Museum yesterday hailed a discovery within a clay tablet in its collection as a breakthrough for biblical archeology – proof of the accuracy of the Old Testament.
The cuneiform inscription in a tablet dating from 595BC has been deciphered for the first time – revealing a reference to an official at the court of Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, that proves the historical existence of a figure mentioned in the Book of Jeremiah.
The discovery was made by a professor from the University of Virginia.
Now, will the mainstream press will pick up on it?
