You cited a wiki article in response to a Harvard academic article discussing peer-reviewed published research findings.... Regardless, nobody alive was there to confirm what happened but there is political as well as monetary advantage in denying the bible’s recantation of history.

The "wiki article" excuse / cop-out used to be valid years ago, but not any more. Reason? Citations.

The points made in the wiki link section bore the following references:

You had a 1998-era Harvard webpage to back up your claim.

On the contrary to your implication, a lot more money is in the religion con-game. After all, isn't tithing a religious duty? Let's leave alone sin-indulgences of the Catholic Church of yore.


Modern science kicks the jaws of stone-age literature to the curb on a daily basis and that's why even archaic organisations based on it like the aforementioned church in Rome now accept evolution as fact.
