Concerning Baalbek, I believe Graham Hancock has written and talked extensively about the dating of the site. As we are all blogging away on his site, his work should perhaps be mentioned in passing.
“for reasons completely unrelated to the point of mentioning them in the first place. Yeesh.”
So why did you mention them? I thought the bible and that other Sumerian guy and his environment were two of the three premises in your argument about dating. Didn’t you write that somewhere? Shouldn’t have used old G. Just should not have done that. No hard feelings and I can’t think that you would stoop to kicking anyone’s dog. But pleeeeease stop accusing us of not getting the point. You might wake Audrey up and then we’ll really be in trouble.
