Ron Wyatt Debunked
In the quest to prove Christianity as fact, many researchers and archaeologists have gone to extraordinary lengths to look at the relics left by past civilizations. Others have even made false claims regarding their discoveries to make it seem like the stories of the Bible are documented facts instead of stories passed on through oral traditions Ron Wyatt was a man who many Christians saw as a credible researcher, but in reality his discoveries were all just a hoax so that he could have fame and money within the Christian community.
Many of Wyatt’s Researchers Debunked His Claims
Wyatt made a lot of claims over the course of his life. His archaeological group claimed to find some of the wheels from the chariots of the Egyptians that crossed the Red Sea. There was blood that was reportedly from Jesus Christ himself. Then there’s the video that shows the alleged resting place of Noah’s Ark.
Let’s excuse for a moment the fact that none of these alleged discoveries has ever been put forth for public display. If one was trying to actually prove Christianity, that would be the best way to do so, wouldn’t it? Tangible evidence? Let’s also excuse for the fact that no scientific evidence has been released from the alleged studying on these artifacts despite investors sending Wyatt’s group tens of thousands of dollars over the years.
Wyatt is a hoax, even if all of the above were true, because he manipulated the information from researchers he interviewed about Noah’s Ark to make it seem like they supported his views when they really did not.
None of Wyatt’s Claims Can Be Duplicated
There are two interesting facts about science: results can be duplicated and future results can be predicted. Wyatt’s research has none of this associated with it. Not one single claim that has been made by Wyatt’s research group over the years, including after his death in 1993, has ever been verified. When questioned about the authenticity of their research, the group becomes defensive and accuses those who attempt to debunk their facts as liars and people working against the Kingdom of God.
This reaction is curiously against what the Bible teaches. “Do not treat prophecies with contempt, but test them all. Hold on to what is good and reject every kind of evil,” says 1 Thessalonians 5. Christians are asked to test evidence like this and then hold onto what is good. For an organization attempting to promote proof of Christianity, there should be an invitation to test all facts instead of reject testing. That in itself gives another inkling to the fact that this is all a hoax.
Ron Wyatt may very well have done a lot of great work over the years. No one is questioning his work ethic. The Ron Wyatt hoax that needs to be debunked is the factual nature of his discoveries as there is no way to verify those facts. Until that evidence comes to the general public to view, there is no reason to believe what Ron Wyatt or his group has ever claimed is truth.
