How does it prove?

I am frum, but I would like to know how do those pieces of stone prove the temple stood there and it was not just from a rich man's house or even a muslim mosque or something else?

No proof makes a difference

Similar to Holocaust denial, no proof makes a dent in the eyes of those who want to deny even when survivors with tattoos on their arms are still alive to tell their tragic tales and the Germans themselves kept meticulous record in writing, photo and on film. Ditto for the Holy Temple - those who want to deny will continue to deny and no tiles no matter how intricate, will force them to change their tune. And those who know, already know - we've known for centuries in an unbroken chain of tradition and we need no further proof. It's just nice to see the beautiful tiling - in this long exile, it gives us a shot in the arm, reminding us of the splendor of our past and of our greatest glory yet to come with Mashiach's arrival, hopefully very soon.

Amen, amen, amen!

No more temple denial, no more lies! God vindicates and the truth will set us free.
