Impressive find. It will be interesting to see what artifacts can be recovered. Hopefully the political forces of the region will leave the scientists alone to do their research.

It fascinates me that 'religions' had this control of resources to be able to erect these monumental facilities at a time when people lived on dirt floors. It's as if organized religion was an emotional knee-jerk response to the cataclysm at the end of the ice age.

Amazing find, I wonder if anything they find will impact modern religions, ie Christianity. If they do, I'm pretty sure il Popa will have something to say about it... I can't wait to find out!

Was that Temple ever mentioned in the bible? I don't particularly recall reading about it? In which case it places a new twist on the book?

This was not a Jewish (religion) temple. the first temple was built by Solomon (David's son) on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
