Ossuary Hoax
Let`s not forget the discovery of the ossuary of Jesus. Or was it James? I can never keep my hoaxes apart.
That was not a creationist hoax. At least I don't think it was.
It was just some dealer out for money.

Time for the Creationists now?
We seen to be very short on input from the other side of the debate.
Who was the most recent creationist making fraud accusations?

Re: Ossuary Hoax
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?
All that is true, but being fooled (even when you want to be) doesn't make you a liar.
Continuing to be "fooled" after the hoax is exposed is starting to be dishonest though.
