    Have any archeologists validated it? If not, there's probably no need to debunk it.

    The answer is, yes, they've been debunked. His gilded chariot wheel is a fake.

    Okay, I'm confused. If you know this has been debunked, why are you asking?

    I thought it might be an interesting discussion, but changed my mind.

    After all these years, I'm sure there is nothing left to find that hasn't disappeared or been completely buried by the ocean floor.

    Maybe we'll be startled when they find AARON'S BONES at the site where we threw him in for toying with us . . .

    Wyatt is such a fake, when you look up the word "fake" in the dictionary, his picture appears next to it. He claims to have found a horse and human bone together in the Red Sea, in the same manner that he claimed to have found a chariot wheel in the Red Sea (a claim that has been readily debunked).

    This is doubly so, since Moses and the Israelites crossed the Reed Sea, and not the Red Sea (in Hebrew, "yam suph", meaning sea of reeds, but mistranslated "Red Sea" in some translations).

    Sorry, I have to take you to task here: How or why did Solomon (or Jehoshaphat) build navies at Ezion-Geber and not on the Red Sea?

    1 Kings 9:26 And king Solomon made a navy of ships in Eziongeber, which is beside Eloth, on the shore of the Red sea, in the land of Edom.


    1 Kings 22:48
    Jehoshaphat made ships of Tharshish to go to Ophir for gold: but they went not; for the ships were broken at Eziongeber.


    2 Chronicles 8:17 Then went Solomon to Eziongeber, and to Eloth, at the sea side in the land of Edom.

    The Red Sea is the YAM SUPH. Read THIS.

    OK, out of curiosity, where is the debunking?

    I remember this "finding" from several years ago, but nothing since.

    Wyatt claimed the find, but has never made his supposed find available to the public for scrutiny. No debunking is neccessary, because no evidence for the claim has ever been brought forth.

    Shows how much I followed it, I guess.

    I remember the hype and video of the episode, and found it fascinating, but then forgot all about it until this thread!!

    This is a blog that sums it up pretty well.

    I sit corrected. There's a lot of religious and archeological debate over it.

    Evidence was produced and debunking, if it can be done, is always necessary.

    The evidence was fake. It was in a web page I read that critiqued Wyatt's evidence. I'll have to see if I can find it again.
