In the books of Kings, he is described as wise and wealthy, and as if he is the greasted king who ever lived. The pens of writers can produce a lot of bullcrap, but they cannot produce historical monuments (like the egyptian pyramids) that attest to the greatness of a civilization. The pyramids are real because you can see them to this day. You can also see the pharaos tombs, their gold, their art, their civilisation/etc to this day. The works they left behind writes the history for them. The same for greeks, and others. So how come they write about Solomon as a great king, and we do not see anything to match up the claims such as realizations one could see to this day? Sholomo lived after the great pharaoes, but we still see the works of the pharoes, but one cannot see the works of Shlomo (except in books). Is King Solomon, just another small little Shlomo made bigger, with the succession of assholes who wrote about him ( and each added a little more achievements that may not have existed even in the mind of the authors who wrote them (but wanted people to believe in them) or was King Solomon a real King who is the greatest King ever lived?
