The Old Testament, Quran, Pentateuch, whatever the title, is filled with mysterious and inspiring words that provide people around the world with hope. These documents describe the adventures of kings, pharaohs, and the daily existence of people and cultures thousands of years old. Is it the need of humans to believe in hope that has archaeologists using ancient archaeological sites as prove of the contents within the Bible? Or are the contents proof of ancient cultures for archaeologists? Was it money, politics and fame that drove early explorers to prove the Bible is accurate? And finally, can faith and science ever prove the existence of one or the other?
