    "The Phoenicians were also venerated for their ancient invention of the consonantal alphabet. Around the time of David and Solomon, the Hebrews had added to this alphabet their invention of vowel notation (using the letters י, ו and ה), which made script much more effective. It lifted writing out of the realm of priestly esoterics and..."

    "Prior to modern script, mankind's precious wisdom could only be stored in a perishable human brain, but modern script allowed for data to be retained indefinitely, which made the Psalmist cheer: "You will not allow your Holy One [the Word] to undergo decay" (Psalm 16:10)..."

    "The Phoenicians were Semitic, just like the Jews. They worshipped the same gods (Baal, Ashtaroth), and Carthage appears to have been the last society to routinely engage in child sacrifice to Molech (as did the Jews: 2 Chronicles 28:3, 33:6).

You were on the holy mountain of God; you walked in the midst of the stones of fire. You were blameless in your ways" (28:14-15)..."

    "Solomon's hallowed temple of YHWH was in fact built with materials from Tyre (1 Kings 9:11) which were hauled in with Tyre's merchant fleet (9:28) and by men from Tyre (7:13), which sends the obvious message that although Israel had all the right ideas, they simply couldn't hack the practical part (5:1-12, 7:14)..."
