DOES THIS NEW SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY DISPROVE THE HISTORICAL RECORD OF THE BIBLE?


The Telegraph, a United Kingdom publication, published an article with the following title: “Study disproves the Bible’s suggestion that the ancient Canaanites were wiped out.” The story and its fake headline have gone viral.

It doesn’t take a Bible scholar to know that the claim is false. What we see here is the perpetuation of fake history as news. Anyone only reading the titles of the above articles (as most people will do) will come away believing a lie and repeating that lie to others. How do we know it’s a lie? Because, contrary to what the article states, the Bible does not say the Canaanites were wiped out.

The following is from the original Telegraph article:

The ancient Canaanites were not wiped out, as the Bible suggests, but went on to become modern-day Lebanese, a study has found.

The Bible does not “suggest” the Canaanites were wiped out which means the DNA evidence supporting the fact that there are descendants of Canaanites today supports the Bible.
