Wouldn't every scientist on the planet want to study those bones, skeptic? Yes, they would. So, why haven't they? I have been reading Science News magazine for years and they never mentioned this discovery. I know many scientists and science writers. You would think they would have mentioned one of the most fantastic discoveries in all of archeology. Where are the scientific papers on these bones? Where are the newspaper articles and tv specials on them? Where is the related Nobel Prize? I have a Jewish colleague who would murder me and his entire family to get his hands on a sample of bible-era giant DNA.
I would just like you to consider the possibility that these discoveries get covered up because the scientists don't want to turn their lives over to God, so they ignore it and pretend it doesn't exist.
Before you laugh, can't you even consider the possibility that this could be true?
OK, let's look at this idea of yours that there could be a cover up. Do you know how things work, Skep? Researchers at universities and research institutions are all keen to get new research out and published - sometimes it affects their funding. Once a paper is published, people working in the same field have a look at it and, if it has problems, they will publish them. Those who read published papers try to prove the research wrong and ideas only survive if they can't be proved wrong.
So, out there, you find not so much scientists but groups at different places in competition for the funds and the research. If anyone finds genuine giant bones, they will be publishing the stuff in a flash because it would be something new for science. Remember Homo floresiensis
? OK, that wasn't something your bible predicted so you may not have noticed but it is what came out of research just as giants would, if we found any.
So, after careful thought....
, laughing is the only option.
