…especially when i used against Bible-thumpers.

It’s pretty interesting that the Philistines used a language that derived from Linear A, and were more sophisticated than the Hebrew shepherds.

So what does this reveal? That the Philistines were the descendents of the Sea Peoples, who were displaced Minoans?

The news of the possibility of the seven caves is very Edgar Rice Burroughs. That the caves seem to be the remains of lava tubes, because they are found on the flanks of an extinct volcano, is very Jules Verne. I’m liking this.
