Christianity vs other religions

What separates Christianity from Mormonism? And from Buddhism? And from Confucianism? And from New Age-ism? In a word: Archeology. None of those religions depends on history that can be verified independently. Christianity does.

Scientific archeology is a young discipline (less than 150 years old). As more and more of the ancient Near East is dug up and handled scientifically, the more proof of the basic historical narrative of the Bible is confirmed.

We don't put our faith in archeology, but archeology confirms our faith.
