    Exploding asteroids, Adam and Eve, and Pontius Pilot.

    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 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.”



    Second, 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.”

    "prompting speculation". Keep trying, this ain't it.

    Science explains old myths without any need to invoke gods, and the religious say, "well, that's what the religious text meant all along!"

    As silly as this is, I'm cool with it. The world is a better place when religion is snap-fit to empirical knowledge, rather than empirical knowledge being dismissed as false in favor of religious myth.

    Oh wow rational, non-magical explanations for previously suspected magical events. Shocker.

    Like how science and historians showed that turning water into wine was a common party trick in the 1st century

    People aren’t as primitive and ignorant as back then. It wouldn’t have the same effect.
