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?
