Beginning in A.D. 70 and lasting until the early 1900s – about 660,000 days – no rain. (Ed. Note, “relatively” no rain in the area of modern day Israel)
I decided to check this out as best I could and examined the rainfall data for 150 years in Israel beginning in the early 1800s and leading up to the 1960s. What I found was astonishing – increasing rainfall almost every single year – with the heaviest rainfall coming in and around 1948 and 1967. Is this just a coincidence?
I’ll be quite honest with you: I don’t think so.
