It does not really matter if you are an atheist or not, research done by scientists is either done properly or not. First, lets for a second focus on
scientists themselves. Dr. Lidar Sapir-Hen
, is an archaeozoologist. She obtained degrees both in
Archaeology and Biology. Dr. Erez Ben-Yosef
studied archaeology and geology at the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem (B.A., B.Sc., M.Sc.) and archaeology and anthropology at the University of California, San Diego (M.A., Ph.D.).
If you followed link from news, you would find this:
To find the first camel, Sapir-Hen and Ben-Yosef used radiocarbon dating to analyze the oldest known camel bones in the Arabian Peninsula,
found at the remains of a copper smelting camp in the Aravah Valley, which runs along the border with Jordan from the Dead Sea to the Red Sea.
The bones were in archaeological layers dating from the last third of the 10th century BC or later — centuries after the patriarchs lived and
decades after the Kingdom of David, according to the Bible, the researchers said. The few camel bones found in earlier archaeological layers probably
belonged to wild camels, which archaeologists think lived there during the Neolithic period or even earlier.
Sure, there might be some older camels remains that we just did not find yet, but at this point there is no evidence of domesticated
living there before 1K BC. There is no written records or any other finds that predates 1K BC.
We are not just talking about Israel, but whole Arabian peninsula. I am sure that both scientist would love to find older ones, but so far, this is
what it is. No evidence means exactly that - no evidence, just the same as current evidence means - we have evidence.

Yes, there might be some older camel found there, but not domesticated. By your logic, there is no evidence that people of that time did not use cell
phones to communicate, is there?
