Sorry, I know this is old, but as stated in the article.
"Scientists have discovered the earliest known Hebrew writing — an inscription dating from the 10th century B.C., during the period of King David's reign."
1 century = 100 years
10 centuries = 1000 years
...so it would have been 1,000 BC...not 10,000 BC
The English language existed in 10th century AD, therefore the Lord of the Rings must have been written in the 10th century AD.
Oh Sauron! How have I offended thee!
I shal offer you this ring I found on that hobbit I mugged the other day.
Hope that appeases you a little.
This reminds me of a certain hilarious Onion article...
"Sumerians Look on in Confusion as God Creates World" xD
