A tiny piece of clay discovered may prove one portion of the Bible


Last week, Israeli archaeologists in Jerusalem announced that they had discovered a 2,700 year old clay seal impression that, in their estimation, once belonged to the governor of Jerusalem.

The excavator Shlomit Weksler-Bdolah said that the discovery “supports the Biblical rendering of the existence of a governor of the city in Jerusalem 2,700 years ago.” 
This would make the seal impression significant in two ways: it would provide archaeological evidence that there was an Israelite administrative presence in the land roughly three millennia ago and it would confirm that the administrative structures described in the Bible actually existed. 
The coin-sized impression is inscribed in Hebrew and reads “belonging to the governor of the city.” It also shows two standing figures who face one another and wear striped, knee-length garments. The Israel Antiquities Authority said that the seal was probably either a souvenir sent on behalf of the governor or originally attached to “an important transport” of some kind.

A DEAR DAVID DIARY GETTING WORLDWIDE ATTENTION

I am completely terrified, enthralled, and perplexed by the DEAR DAVID Twitter stream being penned by New York writer Adam Ellis. He is known on Twitter as Moby_Dickhead.  And suddenly he is captivating publications all over the world..

It began in August. He said he had a dream about a boy with half of a head.. He said his apartment in NYC was being haunted by a dead boy. . . At some point he learned that the boy's name was David. Dear David, actually. And you could only ask him two questions. If you asked a third, he would desire to kill you.

Adam Ellis asked a third..

And the rest became a Twitter stream of nightmare potential.

His cats got involved, as he

Just last week he revealed this photograph, which he said shows Dear David staring at him from across his bedroom:



The last update was last week. Nothing since then.

There are currently 559,000 or so followers who have been watching the accounts of Moby Dickhead. Waiting for another enthralling update.. waiting for another ph…

Art Bell speaks!

And he no longer wants to have his name even associated with Coast to Coast AM..

Here's a screen cap from his Facebook page tonight, only moments ago, in which he exposed yet more feelings about the program:



For months now Art Bell has sent out cryptic messages through his Facebook page about how he wants to be disassociated from the late-night radio show..

Last night George Noory hosted Ghost to Ghost a.m., something Arbel started years ago.



One comment from a friend of Art Bell asked 'why not do a show' of his own. Bell responded in kind:


He said, "It's not that I want to do a show, it is that Coast has gone so far down the drain that I wish my name was not associated with it. I asked them to stop the Saturday Broadcasts of my old shows but so far they refuse."

Interesting developments continue with Mr. Bell.

It appears he is enjoying his show-free retirement, but something seemingly is breaking his heart about what has happened to the once beloved late ni…
