"Idiots" are those who don't know what they are talking about. "Fools" know what they are talking about but are foolish enough to be interested in such a thankless profession.

The latest issue of Imprimis has an interesting piece on the Tea Party movement, both the good and the bad. IMHO it is spot on: http://imprimis.hillsdale.edu/current

From my ever trusty Logos edition of Bible and Spade 1972, v 1

"It is indeed true that camels were used more widely from the period of David onwards, but it is also true that camels were used for domestic service long before Abraham traveled the lands of the Bible. Archaeologists have recovered bones and teeth, and even figurines, of camels predating Patriachal times. One figurine of a camel was excavated at Lagash in Mesopotamia and dates to about 2350 B.C., hundreds of years before Abraham. Another figurine found in Egypt, dating to about 3000 B.C., depicts a man alongside his kneeling camel."

Well, now that we've solved a non-issue (see David's reference concerning what the archaeologist said, vs what the press reported), this leads to another fascinating article from David's same link:

http://www.jta.org/2014/01/10/news-opinion/israel-middle-east/ancient-water-tunnel-discovered-in-east-jerusalem 

This goes to show you what can happen when you sign up for a tour (field school excursion) in Israel. If you actually lived in Israel, it could also happen, but who can really say.

Which ... drum roll ... leads to yesterday's blog: http://blog.logos.com/2014/02/american-schools-of-oriental-research/
