Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Archaeologists have found what they believe is the world's oldest site for alcohol production, a study said Thursday, adding the beer-like beverage may have been served in ceremonies some 13,000 years ago. The site is located in the Raqefet cave south of Haifa in today's northern Israel that also served as a burial site for the Natufian people. "If we're right, this is the earliest testament in the world to alcohol production of any kind," Dani Nadel, an archaeology professor at the University of Haifa and one of the authors of the article published in the "Journal of Archaeological Science: Reports", told AFP. "We know what the Natufians did in the cave. They buried some of their dead on a platform of flowers and plants, and apparently also produced a soup-like liquid, an alcoholic drink."

This can't be true. The teetoataling parents of my girlfriend in high school said wine couldn't make you drunk back then. Upon mentioning Lot becoming inebriated enough to have coitus forced upon him by his daughters, I was told it was a special wine that the devil had purposely made for them to do the ---------- deed.

I agree with Madscientist. We know for a fact that mankind first learned how to brew beer when a fish-god cam out of the sea and taught the the people Ur how to party. Because that is described on all of their pottery that was beer urns (according to the chemical traces on the bottoms), and they drank it warm through straws, in male and female pairs in all depictions.

So I'm going with Jewish propaganda on this one.

It sounds like they made fermented beer soup... not sure whether to be interested or disgusted

"According to Nadel, the liquid was "different than today's beer" and probably much weaker"

Yeah, that makes sense all things considered. Probably more expensive, too. Should have gone with the fish-god, guys. History would have been totally different.
