The "Jonah Ossuary" Images Debunked

To quote Bob: "Fish don't have handles."

Robert Cargill has posted a blog article that, beyond a shadow of a doubt, exposes where the so-called "Jonah Ossuary" images were digitally manipulated. These manipulations were made to hide features that very plainly show that the "fish" are in fact pottery.

If that were not enough: 

Almost immediately after Bob posted this article (March 13 2012 @ 13:21, to be precise) the "The Jesus Discovery" blog (which is the official mouthpiece of Jacobovici and Tabor's "findings") pulled down one of the manipulated images to re-title replace it.

Needless to say, this is not how one deals properly with criticism, and this is not the first time that edits to the "findings" have been made without proper citation and documentation.

In the digital age, there is always a "paper trail" and those who are observant will find it. :-)

UPDATE: The paper trail continues. At 18:07, the old image (where the "fish" outlines were doctored; previously #16 [deleted], and then #60 with un-doctored lines) was re-uploaded as image #61. I will be watching carefully to see if #60 is deleted.
