Thideology Research Team: Case File 007

Jerusalem, ISRAEL — The Thideology Research Team has announced that on Feb. 22, 2009 Israeli archaeologists discovered a large building dating to the time of the First and Second Temples associated with Hezekiah, the King of Judah. A complete account of the discovery is available on worldnetdaily.com (the news agency that actually reported the story).

According to Thideology Research Team officials, who knew nothing of the discovery until they read about it in the aforementioned news story from worldnetdaily, the excavation was conducted by the Israeli government’s Antiquities Authority in the southern Jerusalem village of Umm Tuba.

“The archaeologists unearthed the remains of an ancient building consisting of several rooms arranged around a courtyard,” said a Thideology Research Team spokesman. “They also found pottery and artifacts from the First and Second Temple periods.”

In addition, there were found official government seals bearing the names of Ahimelekh ben Amadyahu and Yehokhil ben Shahar, two high-ranking officials in Hezekiah’s government.

“As always, the Thideology Research Team is available to not go to help in the excavation,” the Team spokesman said. “In fact, we are already blocking off several weeks on our schedule to not go to Jerusalem in the event we are not contacted by the Israeli Antiquities Authority. We expect to not get that call any day, now.”
