JERUSALEM, Israel – Israeli archaeologists believe they have evidence that the biblical King Hezekiah did indeed destroy the high places and idols in the land of Israel as described in the Bible, evidence officials say highlights Israel's past connection to the land and helps draw the country's boundaries today.

We've known this for a long time. It's written in the Bible. It just takes the rest of the world some time to catch on.

 

Maybe with a few more archaeological discoveries, they'll find there really was an angel that killed off 185,000 Assyrian soldiers in one night.

Interesting that they say this: 

The idea of using a toilet to defile cultic locations is even mentioned in the Bible, as in the case of Jehu when he destroyed the cult of Ba'al (see II Kings 10:27). It's the first time the phenomenon has been confirmed archaeologically.

 

Like you said Eric, it's been there all along. Why not just go with what the Bible just says and enjoy these archaeological finds that are interesting in themselves in showing us what it was like in these days?
