Israel - A recent discovery by an archaeological team from Haifa University has proven that a Talmudic passage is historically accurate, and that there were, in fact, Jewish settlements around the Eastern Kinneret during the era of the Mishna and the Talmud.

ISRAELNATIONALNEWS.com (http://bit.ly/1PaRLKl) reports that the Haifa team—-which is led by Dr. Haim Cohen and currently conducting a dig at Kursi—-unearthed a 1,600 year-old marble slab which contained both a reference to the Talmudic town of Kursia as well as a blessing ending in the word “Amen.”

Previous theorists believed the region had been home to only Pagan towns, but Dr. Cohen said this recent find confirms that passages from the Talmud were correct, and that Jews did indeed inhabit the region.

“In the world of archaeology, people believe that until you have facts in the ground, then a theory is unproven. So here we have proof that this area had Jewish inhabitants. Something which was refuted before. It was believed that this entire area was pagan. But moreover, it confirms passages from the Talmud that claim that this town was a Jewish town,” Dr. Cohen said.

The the Gemorah says so is not enough for Jewish goyim. They want it verified by archeology.

Absolutely love it. Proof positive, for all to see. Hashem's nevuot coming about before our eyes.

The Talmud does not have to be "proven" by archaeology. To think so is apikorsus.

It's the other way around.

Hey Einstein, just be happy this discovery might prove it to others.

The main thing this prooves is that when archaeologists don't believe something Chazal said, there isn't any reason to get concerned or take seriously.

This is also true of other "scientific" findings. People think that when something is called scientific, it must be true. However, if you look at the history of "scientific facts" you will find that later scientists have proven earlier theories wrong.

Well, we do know from ע"ז י"א ע"ב that the town of כורסי was one of five towns used for עבודה זרה:

חמשה בתי עבודת כוכבים קבועין הן אלו הן בית בל בבבל בית נבו בכורסי תרעתא שבמפג צריפא שבאשקלון נשרא שבערביא
