DNA study supports Bible: Canaanites homogeneous group, lived in Israel
A newly published study has shed light on the genomic features of the ancient population of Southern Levant - an area that covers modern Israel and the surrounding region - confirming that the biblical people were indeed a clear and homogeneous group and supporting the archaeological findings.

Moreover, the research showed that many present-day populations of the area have ancestries from groups whose ancient proxy can be related to the Middle East.

The beginning of the book of Genesis narrates that God ordered the patriarch Abraham (back then Abram) to leave his native land of Haram and embark on a journey to “a land that I will show you. ...

Yes, I accept the Bible is true---periodâť—

You can say that the Jerusalem Post is always on the lookout for articles that support the Bible, while the publication, Haaretz is written for the liberal Jew.

Archaeologist Israel Finkelstein and his colleagues are stirring controversy with contentions that many biblical stories never happened, but were written by what he calls `a creative copywriter' to advance an ideological agenda....

Prof. Israel Finkelstein sees no contradiction between holding a proper Pesach seder and telling the story of the exodus from Egypt, and the fact that, in his opinion, the exodus never occurred....

excerpt from," Grounds for Disbelief"

I would think many an Independent Fundamentalist Baptist Church would do a very good job of refuting Professor Finkelstein.

I wonder what they learned from the study? That Canaanites were real? Oh. I have a good book that could have told them all about it, and they would have saved a bunch of money.

Not particularly. The Scientific Method is logically fallacious even when we might like the conclusions. As John UK said, faith is not grounded in tangible, empirical things that science is concerned about.

"Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed," John 20:29.

Support for the Bible will not make any difference to faith in the Bible. God walked among men once, and still they did not see him.

Archaeologists indeed concur that around the 2nd millennium BCE, or Middle/Late Bronze Age – when according to some interpretations Abraham lived - the Canaanites had a major presence in what later became known as the Land of Israel....
“We were afraid that it would be very difficult to obtain the DNA, because the climate in Israel is not very hospitable for its preservation, but when we started the project, it was discovered that there is a certain bone in the skull, the petrous bone, which is more likely to provide DNA samples. We decided to focus on that,” he said. “With this technique we had a success rate of about 50%, which is good.”

In addition to the new DNA samples, the group also employed previously reported data from 20 other specimens from four sites, for a total of 93 specimens....

One of the lead authors of the paper, is a professor at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

Oh by the way, this is the same article that SA used.

Who did the study? It might matter, for people hostile to Jews could argue Conflict of Interest if the study was done by an Israeli organization or college. And those more sympathetic to Jews don't need convincing.
