"In religion and politics, people's beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second hand, and without examination." - Mark Twain
The primary thing this tabet will do is give the biblical scholars something to argue about for the next 50+ years, just like the Dead Sea Scrolls. I won't change anybody's mind about their faith, and I suspect have no real impact on the world of religion. An interesting story though and might give some insite into the ancient world. The historical scholars and possibly linguistics may learn something new, for the biblical scholars it's just one more thing to fight over.
