Ancient Rock crypt decoded?
Prob'ly gonna git slammed fer this, but what the heck.......
A team of archaeologists were working in Jerusalem when they found a slab of rock with seven figures carved and painted on it.
In order, the figures were:
1. A Woman with light colored hair
2. A decorated plate, or platter
3. 2 very small loaves of bread
4. A Shovel
5. A Fish
6. A Star of David.
7. Two men looking towards the other chiseled images, with words coming from the mouth of one man.
After months of studying the rock (and the figures on it) without success, the team called in the government codebusters who quickly solved the message.
The Archaeology team leader then took the rock and went on a lecture tour around the country. He said the carvings were several thousands of years old but even so they revealed
a lot about the people of that time.
(1). The woman being placed first in the line of figures indicated that women were held in very high esteem. It was most likely a family oriented culture.
(2). The artistic plate showed they appreciated good food and enjoyed meal times.
(3). The small loaves of bread showed they were frugal, possibly weight concious.
(4). The shovel shows they were highly intelligent as they knew how to make tools and had advanced from a hunter-gatherer society to an agrarian social base.
(5). The fish shows they knew how to augment the crops they raised by also reaping from the bounties of the sea.
(6). The Star of David, of course, indicates they were a very religious group of people.
(7). The figures of two men looking towards the Star of David tells us that one was expounding religion to the other, and was probably a religious leader while the other was a student.
A little old man in the back row had been waving his hand in the air and finally got the attention of the speaker. When the speaker acknowledged him he said;
"I hate to start an argument there, doc, and real sorry to blow holes your conclusions, you being the expert and all, but you were reading it left to right. You forgot in Hebrew we read from right to left. What it actually says is;
"Holy mackerel, buddy, dig the buns on that dishy blonde!"
