    I would submit that this “ancient tablet” is probably another sensationalist scam, as is clearly suggested by the facts

    (1) that no specific information is available on its provenance (“probably found near the Dead Sea” doesn’t quite do it for me); and

    (2) that no details are provided on carbon dating of the ink or analysis of the stone.

    As such, this “news” brings to mind the faked Lost-Tomb-of-Jesus “documentary” designed to financially profit from people’s fascination with the “real” Jesus, as well as the larger scandal of the biased and misleading way the Dead Sea scrolls are being presented in museum exhibits around the world, with an antisemitic nuance emerging on a government-run North Carolina museum’s website. See, e.g.,
