No, actually, it when they try to fit the site to their theology.  I saw a religious show once where they decided where Soddom might have been, found a cave nearby, and said "see we told you Lot and his daughters stayed in a cave, here is the cave, so that MUST be Soddom over there and therefore this must by the cave, QED".

Communists find all archeology to bear out dialectical materialism ... too.

Biblical archaeology has caused more damage in the Middle East than all the wars put together.

Haha ... Muslims would destroy anything predating the local Muslim conquest.  They invented erasing history, centuries before George Orwell.

Biblical archeology is backward.  Trying to fit the archeology to the Bible instead of fitting the Bible to the archeology.  If you stand a Biblical archeologist on his head, he will see things as they actually were.



I have taught Biblical Hebrew by the way.

I think that you find the Christian Emperors destroyed the Library of Alexandria.

Politicians always burn books, and all other recording media.  They don't like being reminded of their gaffs ;-)

Milton invented the early modern false meme about Satan, building on the late medieval false meme devised by Dante.

I think you'll find "the" Library of Alexandria had for all practical purposes ceased to exist before Constantine became emperor.

Don't pick on the non-encyclopedic.  Julius Caesar was the first accidental book burner.  Cleopatra's opponents fought back when Julius and Cleo were trapped in the palace in Alexandria.

I recall reading somewhere that Cleopatra wasn't all that beautiful.

We have several portraits in stone and on coin.  She was no Nefertiti.  But she was the smartest most powerful woman on the planet at that point.  She knew at least two languages, maybe four others as well.  Her attraction was that she could hold her own in conversation with equally smart men like Caesar.  She was 21 when she got Caesar to side with her in the Egyptian civil war.  Caesar was a lady killer, but was never controlled by any of them.  She could also beguile less smart men like Anthony.
