Ancient Markings in Jerusalem Uncovered.

Wasn't sure where to post this, but I thought everyone here would like to take a look at this news report.  http://news.yahoo.com/experts-stumped-ancient-jerusalem-markings-071348189.html

 

Quote:

Mysterious stone carvings made thousands of years ago and recently uncovered in an excavation underneath Jerusalem have archaeologists stumped.  Israeli diggers who uncovered a complex of rooms carved into the bedrock in the oldest section of the city recently found the markings: Three "V'' shapes cut next to each other into the limestone floor of one of the rooms, about 2 inches (5 centimeters) deep and 20 inches (50 centimeters) long. There were no finds to offer any clues pointing to the identity of who made them or what purpose they served.

The archaeologists in charge of the dig know so little that they have been unable even to posit a theory about their nature, said Eli Shukron, one of the two directors of the dig.

"The markings are very strange, and very intriguing. I've never seen anything like them," Shukron said.

 

Maybe you guys have theories on this; I'd like to hear them if so.

duh.  those three "V

duh.  those three "V shapes" are arrows to direct the crowds.  "bring your lamb right this way, sir!  the barbecue will begin shortly.  god gets the fat and shitty organs, the priests get the meat, and you get to go home and raise us another one by this time next year.  only prime grade, if you please, sir!  right this way!  get away from me, kid, you bother me..."

I'm thinking 'mundane'

Looks like a base support for something they didn't want to move... Animal Cage? Sacrificial Alter?

Don't let Luminim see this, He'll be certain it's an ancient astronauts orgone accumulator...

Christianity: A disgusting middle eastern blood cult, based in human sacrifice, with sacraments of cannibalism and vampirism, whose highest icon is of a near naked man hanging in torment from a device of torture.

Great way to keep him from doing that, point it out. LOL
