Looking for oil?

Why hire a team of scientists, study the ground or test drill when you've got the bible? Apparently it's the way to go for John Brown of Texas.
"Texan seeks biblical path to oil in Israel
05.04.05 1.40pm

KIBBUTZ MAANIT, Israel - A Texas oilman is using his Bible as a guide to finding oil in the Holy Land. John Brown, a born-again Christian and founder of Zion Oil & Gas of Dallas, can quote chapter and verse about his latest drilling venture in Israel, where his company has an oil and gas exploration licence covering 38,400 hectares. "Most blessed of sons be Asher. Let him be favoured by his brothers and let him dip his foot in oil," Brown quotes from Moses' blessing to one of the 12 Tribes of Israel in Deuteronomy 33:24. Standing next to a 54-metre high derrick at Kibbutz Maanit in northern Israel, Brown said the passage indicated there is oil lying beneath the biblical territory of the Tribe of Asher, where the agricultural community is located.
