Israeli archaeologists have found two 9,000-year old animal-shaped figurines while excavating the site .
A six-inch long statues, made of limestone and dolomite used as a good luck charms for hunters during the Stone Age.

Archaeologists came across the figures, one resembling an ox, the other a horned ram, after examining the site of a construction project a few miles north of Jerusalem.
Director Hamoud Khalaily said: “It is considered one of the most fascinating chapters in the history of mankind; many changes took place in it that shaped human society for thousands of years to come.”
Standard Lemmings reply to this would be:
A} “You know what Ha-shem created world and made Adam and Eve. And According to Torah it must be around 4004 BCE.” Of course this assertion is based on those plagiaristic fables from Sumer ,later copied into Torah.
B} “You shall burn in Hell .Radioactive carbon dating is not accurate, YHWH alone is accurate ”.
What doesn’t enter their minds is that advance technology has been available which is in use for some time . Guess they forgot to update their knowledge.
The new calibration curve, which extends back 50,000 years, is a major landmark in radiocarbon dating.
The curve called INTCAL09, have also been published in the journal “Radiocarbon”. Dr Ron Reimer of the Queen's School of Geography, Archaeology and Palaeoecology said, and I quote:
“It is significant because this calibration curve now extends over the entire normal range of radiocarbon dating, up to 50,000 years before today”.
Most religious lemmings don’t know this fact that the main threshold for C—14 dating is 50,000 years and after that there is too little carbon-14 left to measure accurately with present day technology.But uptill 50,000 yrs there are no issues.
