Oldest Hebrew Text Discovered at King David's Border Fortress
 
by Gil Ronen

(IsraelNN.com) Archaeologists have discovered what they say is the oldest Hebrew text ever found, at a site they believe was King David's front line fortress in the war against the people of Pleshet, also known as the Philistines. The site overlooks the Elah Valley, where the young David slew Goliath, the Philistine giant, with a well-aimed shot from a sling.

This might bring some people of less or no faith to thinking otherwise.

Yes and no.  You should see the political use such things are put to.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Hi all/

I agree that it can be used for good or bad, but then what isn't?
At least to those that thought the Bible was a fake and all made up, they can give second thoughts to that of the Tablet found.
There was also found last year a http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/06/world/middleeast/06stone.html
I posted it on twitter...but now it says that you need to be a member to see it?
Ill try and find the link made by a Muslim who became Orthodox!
