A New Inscription from Ugarit

I learned that archaeologists have just found a new inscription near Ugarit that reads as follows:

bhlm abrhm yšn

The above text was engraved in the standard Ugaritic cuneiform alphabet on a stone near the remains of a posthole that excavators say was one of several post holes forming a pattern that is generally associated with a tent having been there.

Thus proving beyond any question that the Patriarchs were real and lived in the Late Bronze Age.

Oh by the way, for those who don't know, the text means, "Abraham slept here."

Happy April 1, 2007!

How could he have been sleeping in Ugarit when he was down south watching Gomorrah get leveled?
