As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

    What are the mosty convincing finds for the Bible?
    Deuteronomy 6:4. Hear, O Israel: The LORD [Jehovah] your God [Elohim] is one LORD [Jehovah].

    The existence of Jerusalem.

    But there are some rather convincing finds against the historicity of the OT.

      My experience of preaching of the same exact gospel of God that Jesus, Peter, Timothy, Stephen, Paul and the rest of God's servants is the most convincing find but only for chosen believers who listen to the gospel and believe the words that flow from it to be true.

            Including the fact that the gospel as preached today is not the exact gospel of God that Jesus, Peter, Timothy, Stephen, Paul and the rest of God's servants is the most convincing find but only for chosen believers who approach the Bible objectively.
            The floggings will continue until morale improves.

            Never argue with a fool. They will only drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

                Not really.
                On the evidence:

                If there were no Patriarchs, no Exodus, no conquest of Canaan, no united monarchy under David and Solomon. Can the early biblical Israel described in the books of Moses, Judges, Joshua, and Samuel, ever have existed at all?

                    Caveat to your first link "However, some archaeologists and textual scholars have raised questions about the provenance of the text, and have suggested that since it was not found in a supervised excavation, it may be a forgery."

                    Finding artefacts (some unprovenanced) from various ancient sites or periods only proves those artefacts exist. We also know that forgery is rife in Israel and often very well done.

                    Finding an artefact or site does not prove the texts found in the Hebrew bible are entirely veracious and factually correct in all things.

                    Your links are also from Christian sites. There is bound to be a level of bias in the reporting.

                      Still nothing to answer on the OP topic yet? Hmmm.
                      Please, get on track.

                        It seems you are wrong. Oh well.
                        And my impression is that the society is Jewish based but I can't pin them down yet.
                        The society, its magazines, and its editor Hershel Shanks have been the subject of widespread acclaim and media attention in publications as diverse as Time, People, Civilization, U.S. News and World Report, The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Jerusalem Post. BAS has also been featured on television programs aired by CNN, PBS and the Discovery Channel.

                          Note the placement of the OP in the correct catagory, then reread the OP, then stick to the topic.

                            The articles were posted on Christian websites.

                            BAS is a non denominational archaeology site that is not without its faults. Shanks was sued in the Israeli Supreme Court by Elisha Qimron for breach of copyright
                            On the evidence:

                            If there were no Patriarchs, no Exodus, no conquest of Canaan, no united monarchy under David and Solomon. Can the early biblical Israel described in the books of Moses, Judges, Joshua, and Samuel, ever have existed at all?

                              What are the mosty (sic) convincing finds for the Bible?

                              Then the answer would be in what specific context?
