TOILET FOUND IN 3,000-YEAR-OLD SHRINE VERIFIES BIBLE STORIES AGAINST IDOL WORSHIP
The stone toilet sits in Tel Lachish, a sprawling Iron Age city and the Kingdom of Judah's most important one after the capitol, Jerusalem. It was found in what the archaeologists believe to be a gate-shrine within Israel's largest ancient city gate. The ruler at that time, King Hezekiah, enacted campaigns of religious worship and reform that made their way into the Hebrew Bible on multiple occasions.

Eh, people have always dumped on other people's religions. Style points to the Jews, though.
