New scientific discoveries and their impact on Biblical history
Discoveries involving exploding asteroids and Pontius Pilate revealed for this holiday season.
There has been some recent scientific news that touches upon biblical history. In honor of Christmas, I thought I would share some of these items.
First, some preliminary data suggest that an exploding meteor obliterated cities and farming settlements north of the Dead Sea around 3,700 years ago, which may have been the basis for Sodom and Gomorrah.
Radiocarbon dating and unearthed minerals that instantly crystallized at high temperatures indicate that a massive airburst caused by a meteor that exploded in the atmosphere instantaneously destroyed civilization in a 25-kilometer-wide circular plain called Middle Ghor, said archaeologist Phillip Silvia. The event also pushed a bubbling brine of Dead Sea salts over once-fertile farm land, Silvia and his colleagues suspect.
People did not return to the region for 600 to 700 years, said Silvia, of Trinity Southwest University in Albuquerque. He reported these findings at the annual meeting of the American Schools of Oriental Research on November 17.
Scientists now suspect that the Earth has been slammed by more extraterrestrial objects than previously suspected. For example, a giant meteor crater five times the size of Paris has been found half a mile under the ice in Greenland. The crater is thought to have formed about 12,000 years ago.
Additionally, biology may confirm the impact of catastrophic events on humanity. Genetic testing has revealed that there may have been an actual Adam and Eve.
A scientific study has prompted speculation that all modern humans could have descended from a solitary pair who lived 100,000 to 200,000 years ago.
Scientists surveyed the genetic ‘bar codes’ of five million animals – including humans – from 100,000 different species and the results have prompted speculation that we sprang from a single pair of adults after a catastrophic event almost wiped out the human race.
…Stoeckle and Thaler, the scientists who headed the study, concluded that ninety percent of all animal species alive today come from parents that all began giving birth at roughly the same time, less than 250 thousand years ago – throwing into doubt the patterns of human evolution.
Next, it appears that infamous Roman Governor Pontius Pilate’s ring may have been discovered at an ancient biblical fortress.
Experts in Israel have identified a ring that may have belonged to Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor who oversaw the trial and crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
Haaretz reports that the bronze ring was discovered 50 years ago during excavations at the Herodion fortress in the Judean desert.
Initially uncovered in a dig led by Professor Gideon Foerster of Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the ring was handed over to a team researchers currently working Herodion, led by Roi Porat, also of Hebrew University. Intense cleaning and a specialist camera owned by the Israel Antiquities Authority have revealed the ring’s secrets.
Finally, though it is not technically related to the Bible, it’s about Egypt...so it’s my Christmas gift to me!
Archaeologists in Egypt are calling the unearthing of a new tomb a “one-of-a-kind” find. The hidden tomb of an Egyptian royal priest had been untouched for around 4,400 years and is covered with exceptionally preserved statues and hieroglyphics….
It’s an ancient treasure chest spread out over two levels – a tomb so perfectly preserved it’s been called the most “significant discovery in decades.” More than two dozen statues guard the chamber and drawings of a family are spread throughout like an Egyptian photo album.
The walls are covered in carvings depicting some of their favorite activities: hunting, musical performances and even sailing. They’re modern-day outings set in stone and vibrantly painted more than 4,400 years ago. It’s a time in Egyptian history excavation leader Dr. Mostafa Waziri said little is known about.
“The discovery today, it’s one of the most important ones for me… Because number one, it’s almost intact tomb. Number two, it’s old kingdom,” Waziri said.
Last weekend saw the announcement of a major discovery in Saqqara, Egypt, where the magnificent tomb chamber of a priest named Wahtye was recently unearthed. This astonishing tomb dates to ancient Egypt’s Old Kingdom, created some 4,400 years ago. https://t.co/33koLI5m8d

It’s a blessing to be able to enjoy all these new discoveries, as well as share them with our Legal Insurrection friends. Have a wonderful holiday, and may God bless you all.

A video about the 12,000 year old comet and its effect on civilization is here:
The Clovis civilization is one that got wiped out.
The theory about human descent from a very few ancestors has been around for a little while: the version I read discussed evidence that the human (or human ancestor) gene pool had been reduced to just a few thousand individuals by the effects of a super-volcano in what’s now Indonesia. Life on Earth is not as secure as we think.
A couple of years ago, I became fascinated by the notion of Ice Age civilizations. It’s been co-opted by the nutty ancient astronaut theorists but seems to have validity. This Greenland meteor strike is perfect for bridging our brief modern history with what MUST have existed before for the present to make sense.
The timing of that meteor strike is perfect. It explains so much of the Bible and why so many of the biblical myths, like the great flood, are found in every oral history throughout humanity. It also suggests why ancient civilizations like Egypt could be so advanced seemingly from the start. One of the very oldest Egyptian structures is a temple so perfect as to beg the question: “How could the Egyptians start with perfection?” Maybe enough of the ancients with the knowledge survived that comet event?
So much of our history is based on the oral tradition found in the Bible. That so much oral and written history has been destroyed and lost over the years doesn’t mean great things were not achieved. Much of it was intentionally destroyed to for the very purpose of erasing it from human memory.
The Greenland study that led to the discovery of the meteor strike is also fascinating because of another recent discovery explaining why its glaciers are melting (a key AGW argument). Turns out there is a naturally recurring process whereby a gigantic aquifer beneath the ice starts percolating and flowing once the ice thickness reaches a critical point. It is mostly melting from beneath.
Greenland was so-named by people after the Ice Age so maybe the glacier itself is the anomaly?
The NWO seems to be using scientism (scientists declaring something to be true on consensus rather than scientific process) to create its own mythology on the journey to utopia.
Something is exceedingly screwy with either the Commenting feature here at Legal Insurrection, or with my Smartphone. Twice now I have attempted to compose a somewhat lengthy post, only to have the keypad disappear, and then only the “copy/paste/select-all” feature available (with the “select all” option highlighting the post, but not actually copying anything). So I’ve wasted perhaps an hour so far. Frustrating. I guess I’ll try using my laptop, and hope for the best.
Could someone please check the Commenting feature here at Legal Insurrection? I’ve just encountered a similar problem posting here using my laptop as I did using my smartphone. I’m not going to waste hours trying to compose and post a comment here. This is now three times my comment has been “lost” here, and I’ve now spent at least two hours trying to get it completed and posted. It’s not a frivolous post I’m trying to make, either.
It is not a solution to your problem, but I must note this may have something to do with your connection/provider. I can post with everything that will hook up to the ‘Net … phone, tablet, and computer.
That’s frustrating. Years ago, when internet connectivity was far more fragile than today, I developed the habit of composing any long replies in a text editor, saving to a file, and pasting them into the reply box. If the send fails, I just open the saved file and past it again. It continues to serve me well.
