My Hunt for Solomonís Temple (Ruins of the First Temple are in the South Pacific)
The Tablet ^ | March 19, 2013

The Internet says the ruins of the First Temple are in the South Pacific. Matthew Fishbane went to find them.

A little over a year ago, Tablet Magazine’s Matthew Fishbane was emailed a grainy video of Papua New Guinea’s Gogodala people—in grass skirts, their bodies decorated with body paint and feathers—singing the Shema, the holiest of Hebrew prayers.

The claim doesn't match up with the Old Testament, but I'm willing to at least entertain the notion that there are other isolated groups from ancient Israel, as there is in India.

So, since I assume you've bought the e-book or whatever that the site is pitching, you know whether this is a ridiculous, easily dismissed crock or if there is more to it.

Maybe you'd like to elaborate?

Maybe the Solomon Islands were connected to Israel and then a giant earthquake knocked things around. It could happen.

They also take my socks from the laundry.

Yeah ... but what for?

No way those skinny little green buggers could wear human-sized socks.

So, it’s an easily dismissed crock then. Too bad you’re out $2.99 for that.

I didn’t pay anything. I just made that up.
