Bones
Hey, Kapy, you missed my fav Ron Wyatt--the discovery of Mr. and Mrs. Noah`s grave, complete with Mrs. N`s jewellry. When he went back to grave-rob, some dirty rotten scoundrel had nicked the jewellry. Or something like that.

Let`s not forget the discovery of the ossuary of Jesus. Or was it James? I can never keep my hoaxes apart.

Re: Ossuary Hoax
That was not a creationist hoax. At least I don't think it was.

It was just some dealer out for money.

True, Ned, but seeing that creationists with media access made a fuss about the discovery of the ossuary (ossuaries?)along the lines of it validating Jesus and the Bible, I think it qualifies for a fraud. Wasn`t it archaeologists who exposed the dodgy inscription, leading to the arrest of the forger?

Sorry I don`t have headline links. One can only stand so much twaddle. :-)

Two-faced dating
On the subject of dating, should we nominate Snelling for presenting RC dating articles while wearing his geologist hat, and knocking the science while hunkering down with his creo buddies?

Re: Ossuary Hoax
Gulp, Rrhain, if the case is dropped, will this mean that the ossuary is really, really the resting place of James? Hallelujah, this proves Jesus (or at least James) really, really existed.

Re: Standards of Truth
Hi, Razd, another reason why I`m in favour of posterior lobotomies. Obviously, frontals aren`t working.
