Biblical Archaeology

While I wait to hear from the powers that be about establishing a Christians only archaeology and Bible/History thread out of the reach of unbelievers, I will create this thread to enable people to talk about this subject without the interference of those who will never believe and only seek to cause trouble.

It is a shame that such interaction is allowing unbelieving interference and ruining the faith of many young believers. Like those threads, Biblical Archaeology is under attack by many unbelieving archaeologists. Dr. Wm. Dever is one of the loudest supporters for getting rid of that field of research and turning it into a Palestine archaeological movement.

While Palestine archaeology should not be ignored, that focus should not come at the expense of Biblical Archaeology. The Bible is true, the events are real and the people are real. They do not deserve to be shunted aside because unbelievers do not want to hear the truth. I have written on the future of biblical archaeology and my profile has the information on that e-book and at times that book is not kind to a few different Christian organizations or archaeologists.

Biblical archaeology should be used to get to the truth as the truth will never come from the professionals who do not believe

The issue you don't understand is that the bible simply isn't as accurate or reliable as you think it is. Your desire for a closed off forum on the topic indicates you don't think your ideas and those of others can stand up to skepticism.
