CT article on Amateur Archaeologists

Gordon Govier has written an excellent article in this month's Christianity Today on the problem of amateur "archaeologists" who make sensational, but unfounded, claims.  As Govier notes, I have commented on the issue here before.  What this means to you: the next time someone forwards you an email that shows chariot wheels under the Red Sea or similar phenomena, hit the delete key.

  • Good article except for the last paragraph where he says he's not opposed to all amateur archaeologists because a lot of the archaeological work is done by volunteers. This statement confuses the two. Volunteers aren't archaeologists, which means he doesn't have to be so apologetic in dismissing the amateurs.
