You guys should really knock off the whole unfounded almost ad hominem crap. This may not be a version of the Creationist Museum and may be the real deal. Real archaeology has confirmed over 2500 people, places, and events hitherto ONLY mentioned in the Bible.

So many artifacts, places, and people were found that Archaeology Magazine (a peer reviewed periodical) had to create an entire magazine dedicated to just this subject (called Biblical Archaeologist and now renamed to Near Eastern Archaeology because the broad scope of interacting cultures this specialized study opened up to the world of scholarship).

Now yes there are those anti-biblical Archaeologists who even if they found something directly confirmative they would spin it to be something else, AND those other knot heads with a spade in one hand and a bible in the other who whatever they find would somehow fit it in...

But these were legitimate Archaeologists with neither ulterior motive who just found stuff...there really is a lot to explore if this Museum cares to obtain and display some of it...

Yeah! I was afraid of that. So typical...however a legitimate one may come of it.

For example, the Documentary Hypothesis theorists long held that Numbers 6 was part of the Priestly documents (P1 as opposed to P2 and other such hypothetical nonsense) which would have been dated (according to their unfounded logic) to the time of Ezra (about 460 BC)...then we found the Silver Scrolls (from around 785 BC) that quote Numbers 6:22 precisely (and this obviously being a copy of a phrase commonly adored and culturally accepted as a blessing) thus making the original from a much earlier time.. it is thus equally plausible that it could have been around for 100s of years before it became a necklace ornament.

These are the types of realities such a museum SHOULD feature and there are so many more...guess we will have to wait and see...

A "museum" from a group of dumbells who insist the earth is only 6,000 years old? What a joke.

What if they find a trumpet that says "Property of the Jerusalem Church of Christ"? Will they allow music in their "church" then?

That would be a bad joke indeed...especially since many early Christians and Jews did not believe it and most do not now....but there is a lot of good archaeological discoveries that could be displayed from a purely archaeological or historical perspective (I have shared two so far).

There is "The Story" told by the prophets and begs you to believe without having actual proof of fact.
Then there is history!
History being grounded in the facts of actual human experiences and right there, that is the difference!
There is no facts to disprove with faith because faith is knowing without actually seeing which makes it impossible to disprove to the one who believes!
But with history, you might be able to argue that it can be proved with physical evidence yet if you ask a thousand people...
Each will have their own take on what happened yesterday or a hundred years ago or WHATEVER!
So maybe faith carries more importance than history?
How can the two have validity then when mentioned in the same sentence?
They can't!
Each are correct!

So true...one should always read all the FOR and AGAINST material and the reasons given for those positions and then THINK for themselves (caps are only for emphasis not emotion)...
