Archaeologists supposedly find the remains of St Paul

The problem with this is the sarcophagus dates at least 390 which is long after Pauls death Afterall he was alive at a time to visit the dicicples in Jerusalem So his death must be around 100-150AD You would imagine the Vatican would be aware of this discrepency Archaeologists have unearthed a sarcophagus believed to contain the remains of the Apostle Paul that had been buried beneath Rome's second largest basilica The sarcophagus, which dates back to at least AD 390, has been th

Claw marks from ancient giant bear found in cave

The bear that left a 3-foot-long claw mark in an Ice Age clay bank was the largest bear species ever to walk the earth, about 6 feet tall at the shoulder and capable of moving its 1,800 pounds up to 45 miles per hour in a snarling dash for prey The claw mark by the extinct giant short-faced bear still looks fresh today in a southwest Missouri cave that some scientists are calling a national treasure -- an Ice Age time capsule sealed for thousands of years Discovered accidentally five ye

Ancient pagan graveyard found under the Vatican
