One of the big mysteries ... where did the Philistines go?  It turns out they died. 

This article promises more than it delivers. But if you read a lot about the missing bodies, you're in luck, sort of.

Now, the question ... were they unusually tall, and oddly subject to being hit by stones?

I thought they were still around — older than Methusaleh.  Wink

I saw another article in the Guardian. I think there is an agenda afoot to re-define good old fashion insults.

Now, being a 'Philistine' is a complement ... cultured, great tastes in pottery, and top-notch iron weaponry.

Sigh.

If you do find they are still around, see if common sense is in hiding with them Sad
