Over at PaleoBabble:
Dr. Amy Beam was kind enough to email me her report entitled, “The Kurdish Guides and the Noah’s Ark Discovery Fraud.” Please have a look. It’s a first-hand accounting of certain individuals involved in the hoax.
And for those of you who will reflexively conclude that such exposure of the fraud is about insulting faith, it isn’t. So please take a breath. From the concluding pages:
A Facebook group was started in September 2011 to investigate the NAMI/MEDIA discovery and demand an audit and accounting from the NAMI/MEDIA leadership. Many church leaders and members worldwide have posted reminders that religious belief is based on faith. It is not necessary to find Noah’s Ark as proof of one’s faith or morality.
There are several film-makers backed by TV stations making documentaries in 2012 of the search for Noah’s Ark and the hoax. Hopefully, some guides will speak publicly so that finally, all of the guides who were innocent victims in this fraud may be relieved of the burden of silence and secrecy.
It is a good report, so give it a read.
