Do archaeologists and historians sometimes ignore simple biblical answers?
The next day my husband and I were having our daily devotional. We were reading about the Israelites going in to conquer the land of Canaan (around 1200BC-1100BC). It tells of them conquering the Hittites, among others, and completely destroying them. Also, in Judges Chapter 6 it tells of the Israelites living in caves to protect themselves from invaders.
Seems to me this would explain the "unexplained disappearance" of the Hittites. Even if some people don't want to admit it, the bible is full of historical information.
The bible does not list dates. I obtained the date from a timeline chart, which was created by scholars.
Goodness, I wasn't trying to "make a mountain out of a mole hill". Please forgive me if it seemed that way. I was just wondering why the biblical text was not considered.

Thank you for your answers. On a personal basis, as a Christian, I still feel that the answer in the bible is correct, but now I can more easily understand that physical proof is required in order for the scientific community to render a definite conclusion in the matter.
