A Colloquium on the Qeiyafa Ostracon

leave a comment »

qeiyafaLa Société Suisse pour l’Etude du Proche-Orient Ancien (SGOA) organise un colloque autour du site de Khirbet Qeiyafa dans la Shephelah (Israël), à l’Université de Berne, le 6 septembre prochain.

Les responsables des fouilles ainsi que les meilleurs épigraphistes seront au rendez-vous. Ce site archéologique a notamment mis au jour un ostracon (un morceau de poterie) sur lequel on a déchiffré une inscription que certains considèrent comme étant l’une des plus anciennes inscriptions en “paléo-hébreu” connues à ce jour.

Cette inscription est très difficile à déchiffrer et le débat autour de sa lecture est tout à fait passionnant.

Infos et réservations ici !

The US did more harm than good in the mid east by letting the genie of sectarianism out of the bottle corked by tyranny.

In Which One Tweet From a Parody Account Shows The Freedom From Religion Foundation To Really Be…

leave a comment »

The Foolish From Ripon Farce- because they aren’t really interested in freedom or religion, they’re simply anti-Christian whiners who – lacking any sort of life- spend their days and nights being fools.

You see, if the FFRF really cared about the ill effects of religion, they would focus on the real ill effects of religion.  But you won’t find them protesting Radical Islam and writing letters to Muslim Clerics- because they, again, are just simply anti- Christian whining fools.
