SOMEWHERE IN, Israel — The Thideology Research Team has just announced that archaeologists have uncovered a small stone in Israel that could be the first archaeological evidence of the Old Testament judge Samson. Researchers of the Thideology Research Team were first made aware of the discovery from a Baptist Press news report. In the original BP report, co-directors of the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary Center for Archaeological Research (who were not involved with the excavation that led to the discovery) said evidence characterizing the find makes it plausible that the seal supports a story of a young boy killing a lion with his bare hands.
“My initial assessment based upon what has been published to date would be that once again we have an artifact that does not contradict the biblical text, but in fact affirms it,” said Daniel Warner, one of the co-directors.
Members of the Thideology Research Team had absolutely nothing to do with the co-directors of the NOBTS Center for Archaeological Research who had nothing to do with the discovery. Nevertheless, the Director of the Thideology Research Team did offer his comments.
“I lost a button like that once,” he said.
