Israeli archaeologists say they have found the remains of a palace that they believe was a seat of power for the biblical King David — but other experts say that claim shouldn't be taken as the gospel truth.

When Ezzat can raise himself from the dead, I'll consider listening to him. In the meantime, I'll take Jesus' word that the OT is God's word.

For a refutation of the nonsense at the linked website, spend some time at http://www.tektonics.org/, where all that baloney is debunked.

No King but Jesus, no President but Ron Paul

I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree on this one

I'm more of a Thomas Paine kind of guy.

"Belief in a cruel God makes a cruel man."
Thomas Paine


What kind of guy are you?

The "kind of guy" you should be is one that seeks after truth, not the opinions of men.

No King but Jesus, no President but Ron Paul

Please tell Spock

how your search after truth and your 'opinions' did not include those of others.....

I love how this forum somehow

I love how this forum somehow downvotes Thomas Paine but upvotes a Zombie God.

I agree with Thomas Paine on that

I also believe in God, it's just that people have different views of him and those who have taken on a view of a punitive, spiteful God can justify being cold themselves.

Defend Liberty!


The mere mention of a founding father, one of the greatest men in our history gets downvoted? That's OK. I don't think Tom would have minded. He also felt very secure in his 'beliefs.'


Is Paine one of the Founding Fathers?

I did not think he had any influence past the Revolutionary war. He roused the people to tear down the old order with "Common Sense", but did he have any role in building the new order? Did have have any role in The Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, or the Constitution? Did he hold any elected or appointed office in the early days of the Republic?

Localism is for people who can still sleep at night even though somebody they don't know in a city they have never been is doing things differently. ("Localism, A Philosophy of Government" on Amazon for Kindle or Barnes and Noble ebook websites)

What did Ron Paul ever do?

Did Ron Paul pass any significant legislation? Did he have such a powerful platform that he stopped a war with a speech? Did he end the FED?

Paine is not only one of the Founding Fathers, he may be the greatest of all of them. Jefferson credited him several times for providing his point of view in the creation of the new "way". Paine, in essence, created the American Enlightenment - the idea of individual liberty. That is why he is not mentioned in text books or talked about by politicians. Collectivists hate the idea of man being free. He is also downplayed by the collectivists because he wasn't religious an spoke out often against Christianity. But, I don't think it can be denied that he provided the philosophical basis for all of it.

He did not seek office, he did not have that ambition.
