Daily reminder that archaeology has the power to change the world and the greatest treasures are still hidden. Why aren't you out there searching?

What exactly would they be withholding and why? I assume you are referring to the 'lost books' of the bible or anything that was considered noncanon. Do they think Enoch holds too many secrets?
Doubt it. Suspect you are lying your undergrad ass off.
Archeology is highly underfunded in most academic institutions. Not to mention, there are very few jobs offered in this field (VERY FEW) and the ones who do get these jobs are top tier grad students who have already published 3 or more academic articles in leading academic journals.
So, no. You lie, and are a low brow dolt.
>Why aren't you out there searching?
Because the white man would steal them.
well than aren't I special then? I am working through my university doing research during the semesters and paid field work during the summers. It's not that difficult of a field to get a job in if you talk to your professors for possible openings in their labs.
Because Archaeological programs typically don't have the resources to gather as much information as possible from a site, so the only ones we should be excavating are those in danger of being destroyed

Literally says archaeology right there friend and this is in no way paranormal.
It wasn't slavery, was it? Were the ancient Israelites the Hyskos of the 12th and 13th Dynasties who were defeated by Egyptians and ran out of Egypt? They even had a Pharoah named Jacob. Wasn't there a dude in the Torah who became vizier...
There's already plenty of material out there showing that Judaism developed out of Canaanite polytheism (with Yahweh being a god in the pantheon), was polytheistic until the Babylonian captivity, that the Exodus didn't happen, and that the United Monarchy never existed either.
This information is easy to find, and much of it is produced by Israeli archaeologists. If they're trying to hide stuff contradicting the Bible, they're doing a bad job.
