Experts Say Bible Written “Centuries Earlier”

January 15th, 2010, Promulgated by Gen

Scientists have discovered the earliest known Hebrew writing – an inscription dating from the 10th century B.C., during the period of King David’s reign.
The breakthrough could mean that portions of the Bible were written centuries earlier than previously thought. (The Bible’s Old Testament is thought to have been first written down in an ancient form of Hebrew.)
Until now, many scholars have held that the Hebrew Bible originated in the 6th century B.C., because Hebrew writing was thought to stretch back no further. But the newly deciphered Hebrew text is about four centuries older, scientists announced this month.
“It indicates that the Kingdom of Israel already existed in the 10th century BCE and that at least some of the biblical texts were written hundreds of years before the dates presented in current research,” said Gershon Galil, a professor of Biblical Studies at the University of Haifa in Israel, who deciphered the ancient text.
BCE stands for “before common era,” and is equivalent to B.C., or before Christ.

So . . . if one had “faith,” and believed what the Bible said to be the literal Truth, he would have been correct, and the scientists and atheists incorrect. I think God’s trying to send a message here, people.

And also, BCE is not the equivalent of BC. It is if you’re a Christ-hating atheist, but not if you’re a rational believer in God.
