It's funny you talk about that because documentaries on the Holy Land was on the History Channel last night. I wonder how this church will have an effect on that.

the church is late 3rd-early 4th century. at least thats what they are guessing from the fish mosaic and pottery fragments found on site. an exact date wont be reached until they finish the excevation.

Which puts it in the ball park of Constantine's council of Nicea (325 or early 4th century).  Hmmm, what could that mean?  yes.gif

Skepticism is good, but when you reach a certain level where
you're grasping at straws and making little sense... it's not
called skepticism.  It's called ignorance.

That would forever put to rest the silly notion many have that the divinity of Christ was invented by Constanine and/or the Council of Nicea.

Really?

yes. of course, it wouldnt affect any one who doesnt hold an absurdly late date of the gospel of john, as it is rather obvious that Jesus is equated with God in it. if one looks at what the Jews thought of Wisdom and compare that to what Paul wrote of Jesus, one could get an even earlier date for when Jesus was seen as God.

Great answer amigo, that's why you are one of my favs.  Debating you is always a challenge and since we actually semi-agree on this thread, I will declare a truce - until later!    grin2.gif  yes.gif

Very intesresting archeological finding! A very good news for all the arecheologist and antropologist that studies the development of the religions trough history.

I don't think any of these "The Vague Society of Nebulous Meanies are going to take over the world and light up a planet" theories worry too much about practical considerations like that. It's all about rousing ill-informed, paranoiac fear, not making sense.
