You guys need to stop it. Just STOP IT.
This is how stupid ‘journalism’ works these days: The claim:
A lost city dating to the rule of King David from the Old Testament has been uncovered in Jerusalem.
The irrelevant side bit:
King David is an ancestor of Jesus, according to biblical sources, which say he ruled around BC 1,000.
The supposition without evidence:
Experts say that recently-found ruins date to the 10th century BC.
And now the giant leap:
This ties in with the timeframe for when the bible says King David existed, making the link between the two ‘plausible’, researchers claim.
The timeframe? For when the Bible says…. making the link plausible???? Good grief. This is poor logic combined with speculation combined with unsubstantiated claims. And it needs to stop.
The witless observation:
The finding is likely to fuel the debate surrounding whether Biblical figures such as King David actually existed, however.
Shut up forever. The entire journalistic profession is festooned with imbeciles who can’t bother to ask actual experts about things before they publish them and as a result the ignorant general public is fed crap and actual scholars pass out from asphyxiation from laughing so hard at them.
Come on media, be better. Do better.
