Re: orion Spaceless "BYTYHWH" inscription

Dear Judith who thinks there is no evidence of temples to yahweh

It is in fact the argument that  here was only a temple in Jerusalem in the
Iron Age that is speculative. The book of Kings (whether reliably or not
does not matter at all) reports Josiah (for example) as clearing away
foreign places of worship and that would be in the 7th century, shortly
before the end of the kingdom of Judah

You should read the bible and forget scholarly 'orthodoxy' now and then!
And also apologize to NP!
