Lead tablets discovered in a remote cave in Jordan, that may have a bearing on our understanding of the life of Jesus, have been making rather a big splash in some of the European papers, but seem not to be making the rounds in the US yet.

Fortunately, there's this internet thingy, which turns all the world into a single news stand.

The Daily Mail on March 21 had this.

The BBC called in an expert of its own choice.
Yet of course, as The Sunday Times warns us it is important to be skeptical about large claims. Such matters are so tempting for fraudsters.

Knowledge is warranted belief -- it is the body of belief that we build up because, while living in this world, we've developed good reasons for believing it. What we know, then, is what works -- and it is, necessarily, what has worked for us, each of us individually, as a first approximation.
