I been watching a series of shows on TV myself aimed to prove through archaeology that the Bible is wrong. Then I found a website which prove through archaeolgy that the Bible is right.
I came to the conclusion that you can find evidence for anything you wan' find. The Bible say "seek and ye shall find" a true word that.
As for what really happened .... only JAH know that.
