Late Arrival Of Camels Gets God’s Editor Fired

The publishers of God's number one best seller, "The Bible," are eating humble pie today after the discovery of a major anachronism in the opening chapters.

According to THE TIMES OF ISRAEL, "Camels were first introduced to Israel around the 9th century BCE, centuries after they were depicted in the Bible as Patriarch-era pack animals, new carbon dating of the earliest known domesticated camel bones found in Israel shows. The research, conducted by Erez Ben-Yosef and Lidar Sapir-Hen of Tel-Aviv University, challenges ”the Bible’s historicity.” The discrepancy “is direct proof that the [Biblical] text was compiled well after the events it describes,” according to a statement released by the university on Monday."

I very much doubt that this will affect the already plain daft beliefs of Biblical inerrantists who will no doubt have some crazy explanation up their sleeves. My guess is that they will be telling us the angels had to remove the bones of the camels to make room for the dinosaur bones God wanted to put in the ground to confuse wishy washy liberals nigh on 3000 years later. He's a crafty bugger, that God.

  1. Oh, thank goodness someone found this funny. I got some flak over it on Facebook because of the language. Are you finding that people are getting a tad too serious and less rebellious recently, JCF? The last thing the world needs is more piety.
