A quick dash through his list shows some of the same old BS claims that litter the Hindu, Creationist, anti-intellectual and Christian fundie
websites. What gets me is how quick people are to accept this type of site and list. Not one photo of the ancient cups, shoes, sandals, bones,
spheres, screws etc etc? This dude has travelled the world '50 times' and forgotten his camera? He should have saved his cash and taken his list of
Creationist advocacy websites like s8int.com and biblebelievers.org or maybe he did because there's no difference from what I can tell.
Apart from the cases that have been flogged to death on ATS, a quick google of some of the wilder claims in the list loop back to all the same wacky
websites with religious and anti-intellectual agendas.
I am going thru the list too and so far three for three. The first (the coin found in Ill) the original coin is long gone, all they have are the
drawings. (for me - that is an automatic "dont look further") The King Crowley head, VERY suspect, the lady in question had a "history" of forging
"relics" and selling to the tourists. The clay doll, seriously stretches the imagination, a CLAY doll surviving that long and a well drill along with
a pump and hardly any damage? There are 200 some odd findings on that list and then it all depends on who you are willing to believe, short of being
able to exam the finds ourselves AND being able to run the tests, it comes down to "who do ya trust".
Dont get me wrong, I truly believe there were ancient civilisations that were far more advanced than we want to realize. BUT I have no proof, and I
wont twist a "find" to fit my beliefs. By the same token, neither will I discount a find out of hand. For example the footprints next to long extinct
creatures/fauna. Those are serious possibilities!
Scientists and archeologists are human too and susceptible to human follies. It is human nature to pursue something that excites you and hope that
nothing discounts what you firmly believe in, and I believe that is the case with a lot of these scientists. That and the fact no one wants to be
scorned or laughed at, and in the scientific world, reputation is everything.
Like someone else said - all it takes is one. Well... in my case 2 or 3. But there is always hope, because in all honesty nothing has occured to
DISCOUNT my personal beliefs, and I am fine with that
Boy I hope I made sense!!!
