Hobby Lobby Bible Museum discovers that their main attractions are fakes.

Well duh, it’s a “Bible Museum.”

Courtesy of CNN:

The Museum of the Bible in Washington, DC says five of its most valuable artifacts — once thought to be part of the historic Dead Sea Scrolls — are fake and will not be displayed anymore.

German-based scholars tested the fragments and found that five “show characteristics inconsistent with ancientt origin and therefore will no longer be displayed at the museum.”

CNN raised questions about the museum’s Dead Sea Scroll fragments in an article published last November, as the Green family prepared to unveil their new, $500 million museum. At 430,000 square feet, and with views of the Capitol, the Bible museum represents a significant investment for its evangelical founders.

Now scholars say the Dead Sea forgeries could be part of the most significant sham in biblical archeology since the “Gospel of Jesus’ Wife,” a fiasco that hoodwinked a Harvard scholar and made worldwide news in 2012. Some scholars estimate that as many as 70 forged fragments have hit the market since 2002.

Oklahoma billionaires, the Greens are best-known for their chain of Hobby Lobby craft stores and their religious freedom battle with the Obama administration over covering contraception in company health care plans.

“Though we had hoped the testing would render different results, this is an opportunity to educate the public on the importance of verifying the authenticity of rare biblical artifacts, the elaborate testing process undertaken and our commitment to transparency,” said Jeffrey Kloha, the chief curatorial officer for Museum of the Bible.

Please, if they were actually committed to transparency they would label the building the “Warehouse of Christian Mythology” and stop selling people a lie. 

I actually wrote about this “museum” back in July of last year when it was revealed that they were fined 3 million dollars for smuggling in artifacts.

Now it turns out that some of those “artifacts” may, in fact, have been fake.

But like I said this is a museum dedicated to a mythology, so essentially almost everything within would have to be fake in one way or another. 

Suggesting otherwise is to engage in fraud.

    Atheist, agnostic, or believer, look at this realistically. Gen-u-ine biblical artifacts end up at the Hobby Lobby museum instead of, say, Israel?
    People will believe ANYTHING.

    Meanwhile, the so-called “biblical tourist attraction” in Williamstown, KY, “Ark Encounter,” is slowly slipping into bankruptcy as visitor numbers continue to plummet.

    “Ark Encounter” was built with the aid of several million $$$ of state and local tax money based on the promise that its presence would bring in hordes of tourists who would spend a mountain of money locally. To the surprise of no one with half a brain, it’s not working out that way.

    WASHINGTON – Democrats will kick seniors off their health insurance. Democrats will end insurance protections for people with health problems. Democrats will destroy the Social Security retirement system. Democrats will give illegal immigrants free cars. Democrats will abolish America’s borders. Democrats are behind the latest migrant caravan from Latin America. That caravan includes people from the Middle East.

    False, false, false, false, false, false, false.
