This one even I couldn’t believe. Aren writes
Josh Walton (who excavated with us for quite a few years and is a senior staff member of the Ashkelon excavations) has passed on to me a link to a program on the History Channel (yes, the History Channel!!!) in which among other things, it is claimed that Goliath is the progeny of a mixed marriage – half alien, half human!
Are people really that stupid? If so, they should stay indoors in their little padded rooms.
If you go to this clip (unless you really have a lot of time to waste, go directly to minutes 3:45-5:30 of the episode), you will see a few interesting things:
1) Archaeologists at Tel Saf found a giant moat defending the site
2) The found a sherd with the name Goliath
3) Scientific tests dates the sherd to the 10th century
4) From this it is clear that Goliath is an extraterrestrial
No kidding – that is what they say. BTW – the pictures of an archaeological excavation that appear in the clip are not taken at Tell es-Safi/Gath.
You’ll have to go over to Aren’s for the clip. My right eye is throbbing and I think I’m about to have an aneurysm. I’ll be back later if I survive.
