The Story of David and Goliath The story of David and Goliath has been told for more than two thousand years It has also raised the interests of historians to see if the story can be proven Now before we make any conclusions about the story there are several questions we need to ask could David have killed a person with a sling could the place where the battle happened existed and the final thing we need to ask ourselves is could giants have existed two thousand years ago Now before we talk about Davids ability to kill a person with a sling we need to familiarize ourselves with the weapon David used The sling used at the time of the battle may have been made out of woven fibers and some sort of animal hide The next question we need to think about is was the sling around during the time of Davids existence The answer is yes Carbon dating has shown that prehistoric man not only used the sling but hunted with it as well Tunis 15 Now after having taken part in the SHSU Great Sling Research Project I have come to a conclusion A person if given enough time could become skilled with a sling One more thing that gives this idea credit is the fact that David was able to scare off or even kill animals that might have harmed his flock of sheep Why was David so good with a sling He was out watching his sheep day in and day out for years with nothing else to do but practice throwing his sling He must have become dangerously accurate with his weapon There are many places that historians thought never existed For example Troy was thought to have been part of a fictional story written by Homer until it was dug up Is there a possibility that the place where David and Goliath fought ever existed
