Good article. It reminded me of a show on Netflix I've been watching called The Detectorists.

The earliest settlement date of North America, until now estimated at 14,000 years Before Present (BP) according to the earliest dated archaeological sites, is now estimated at 24,000 BP, at the height of the last ice age or Last Glacial Maximum.

Leave it to the Baptist news to say Southern Baptist Theological seminary discovered the remains. To be quite frank, the remains were actually discovered by two friends of mine who did not attend Southern. Either way, it is a monumental discovery.

You may be reading it wrong. I think they're referring to the denomination, not the actual "Southern" seminary located in kentucky. It's not worded very well.

I don't look to the Baptist News site to be the standard in journalism, but I'm glad someone reported it :lol:

How cool for your friends to be involved in the discovery! That ranks right up there with one of the coolest things I'll never do.

The articles reads as if Southern or Southern Baptists are ones who discovered it, which is far from the truth. Sure, I'm sure there were Southern Baptists participating in the dig, but there is no reason to make it sound as if it was only the Southern Baptists. There were dozens of archaeological programs from other seminaries that were at this dig, one archaeologist being from Asbury Theological and another from Memphis Theological and several others that made the discovery. These types of digs require the efforts of several entities to make it possible, which is great for unity, but I still don't understand why the article must be worded so badly.

I digress; my apologies.

I'm probably not right in the head. It was both a failed pun and a failed dig. Southern Baptists like to take credit for lots of things. They track their growth through reported baptisms the same way. No questions asked. Just give us the number thank you. Baptistz is fine and okay all the timez and big.

Roman Ruins Found in France Are Called ‘Exceptional’
LONDON — Archaeologists have discovered the well-preserved remains of a Roman neighborhood that was destroyed early in the first millennium after Christ, in what the French Culture Ministry called an “exceptional discovery.”

3,700-year-old Babylonian tablet rewrites the history of maths - and shows the Greeks did not develop trigonometry
It opens up new possibilities not just for modern mathematics research, but also for mathematics education. With Plimpton 322 we see a simpler, more accurate trigonometry that has clear advantages over our own.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

This is extremely cool in many ways.

But this quote from someone claiming to be smart made me roll my eyes til they crashed into my brain:
“This is a rare example of the ancient world teaching us something new.”
This statement encapsulates pretty nicely what I despise about modernism.
