Eretz Yisrael Time

Particularly over the last decade the radicals of Tel Aviv (and Hebrew) University have been pushing their minimalist theories of archaeology in Israel (anti-Biblical Archaeology).

Despite the wonderful finds that physically correspond to descriptions of places and objects in the Torah, these archaeologists have been doing everything to push their personal pet theories on to the public and the archaeological community in general -
despite the finds.

They have a lot of influence particularly with the weight of their university behind their agenda.

On the other side, there have been leading individual archaeologists (such as the Mazar family) that have been doing excellent field work that debunks these anti-Israel archaeologists. But it hasn’t been enough - there's always the politics that gets in the way of the truth.

Bar-Ilan University has decided to
enter the fray.

Bar Ilan will be opening an archaeological department to “serve as a counterweight to revisionist historians who dismiss any connection between archeology and the Bible” whom they better describe as "post-modernist revisionist nihilists" .

About time, and I would love to take a course if I can.
