Saudi prince throws his weight behind archaeology

There are 2 comments on the Iol.co.za story from Nov 9, 2017, titled Saudi prince throws his weight behind archaeology. In it, Iol.co.za reports that:

Saudi Arabia's Prince Sultan bin Salman encouraged the country to embrace groundbreaking archaeological work in the kingdom, saying it bolstered the practice of Islam and did not detract from it. Addressing a packed auditorium of local and international archaeologists and Saudi leaders, both civil and clerical, on the second day of the kingdom's inaugural archaeological convention on Wednesday, Sultan said the new findings proved scientifically that the religion remained the final revelation from God, the great religion for all humanity, and that Mecca had occurred and evolved exactly as it is told in the holy Qur'an.

I don't know how much he plans to influence the archeological finds, especially the ones in Jerusalem or if he will influence the UNESCO's decisions for Islam. This is a legitimate concern considering he believes any archeology will confirm Islam and the Quran.

Biblical archeology is there since 1811A D . But it had not confirmed any biblical stories till now ..Same will be the fate of islam if it wants to work on the parameters of secular archelogy .
