Digging or Shoveling?
9 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Digging or Shoveling? Josh Bernstein isn't digging for the truth but he sure is shoveling a lot of something else.

The Colossus of Rhodes never existed? The Ark of the Covenant never existed? Even a fan of Indiana Jones knows, "Archaeology is the search for FACT not TRUTH." Instead of actually "digging" for the Colossus of Rhodes, he simply claims it never existed.

Bernstein points to a medieval painting of the Colossus straddling the harbor and claims the entire wonder of the world was merely a Dark Age fantasy. In one statement he throws out all the witness accounts of the Colossus during antiquity.

He also ignores the numerous artworks from antiquity also depicting the Colossus.

Next he claims the Ark of the Covenant never existed, because the Hebrews wouldn't have had any gold. "Where would the Hebrews find gold in the desert?" he asks.

Didn't this guy read the free book in the motel room where he lives? The Egyptians gave it to the Hebrews after the 10 plagues when they left Egypt. "Get off my land." The Aaron melted it into the Golden Calf which was in turn melted down and used to make the Ark.

Josh Bernstein is a lazy fool who doesn't dig for the truth, he just makes excuses for why he isn't digging. Because he claims it never existed.

Josh Bernstein isn't digging for the truth but he sure is shoveling a lot of something else.
