No.  But I'm pretty sure that's why the Israelites made up the story.


Comment by Gerald Payne yesterday

And we all know that's the truth Craig????????????

Comment by Craigart14 yesterday

Lemuel Poot: The children of Lot's daughters are the forebears of the Moabites and Ammonites, two tribes later destroyed--or nearly destroyed--by the Israelites.  Their lowly, sinful origin made a good excuse for just a little more God-willed genocide, even though the father of these two lowly tribes was Abraham's nephew.

Too many priests want to rule over little boys.

Great story about Gough's Cave.  So the Brits used to eat each other eh?  "Waste not want not."  Must have tasted bitter.  The French were probably more sour than anything else.  The Spanish were probably the tastiest of the lot.

My favorite bible story is the steaming hot mini-porn starring Lot and his two horny daughters.  I always wondered, "Just how much wine did they bring with them to that cave anyhow?"  Did a Mogen David truck deliver there or something? 

On top of that, just how much wine do you have to drink in order to have sex with your daughters, and not even know about it?  We're not talking about Everclear here or even Jack Daniels.  The only stuff they had back then was close to the grape, foot pressed, and with a vintage of last Tuesday or so.

 Let's see now, they run away from a nuclear disaster.  Their mother gets turned into a condiment on the way.  They finally find a cave big enough to hide in and the only thing the girls are worried about is getting it on with daddy?  Kinda makes me wonder about that whole yarn he spun a little earlier in the tale, "My daughters are pure and have never known a man..."  

Right!  Buy that one and there’s some Florida swampland I‘m sure you’ll be interested in.

'More proof that ancient Britons had cannibalistic habits'

Many ancient human remains, aged at about 15,000 years old, have been unearthed over the years from Gough’s Cave. These bones have been studied and research has been published, including a paper in 2011 in which Museum scientists revealed that the earliest known examples of human skull-cups were made in the UK. Today, new research shows more cannibalistic evidence, including human tooth marks on many of the human bones. The research points to the existence of a sophisticated culture of butchering and carving of human remains, the team says. ‘We’ve identified a far greater degree of human modification than recorded in earlier research,’ said Dr Silvia Bello, from the Natural History Museum’s Department of Earth Sciences, and lead researcher. ‘We’ve found undoubting evidence for defleshing, disarticulation, human chewing, crushing of spongy bone, and the cracking of bones to extract marrow.’ - See more at:

I think the discovery at Gough's cave of fully matured small wolf skeletons was first Known domestication of 'dogs'.
