Archeologists Discover The Ancient Bones Of Biblical Giants-Fiction!
Summary of the eRumor: This is a forwarded email with
photos that shows the bones of giants being examined by
archeologists. The email says that these are the ancient
bones of giants that were mentioned in the Old Testament.
The Truth: The photos are computer
manipulated contest entries by a digital artist called IronKite.
The pictures were taken from a web site that hosts photo contest
submissions called Worth1000, according to a December 14, 2007 National
Click for article.
The article said
IronKite's photos came in third place in the 2002 "Archaeological
Anomalies 2" competition.
A real example of the eRumor as it has
appeared on the Internet:
This is my
first time seeing this even hearing about it. A long time friend of mine
sent it today. The best I can tell is that it is the area of the Greek
Hellenistic influence around the time when Alexander The Great died in
323 BC. When David slew Goliath of Gath, he was reported to be a
Philistine. The Bible isnít detailed except to say Goliath had 4 kinsmen
and maybe these are some of his kinsmen or countrymen as mentioned,
rather than just a big Philistines.
giants from the days of the bible...
I thought this was really cool, how scientist keep
finding proof of biblical stories!
Remember the old testament story of how the Israelites were afraid
because of the GIANTS in the land of Canaan .
Numbers 13:33 There we saw the GIANTS (the descendants of Anak came from
the GIANTS); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we
were in their sight."
