The Myth of the Smithsonian Archaeological Conspiracy

I’ve directed readers to Jason Colavito’s blog many times before, but I don’t believe I’ve included this specific essay: How David Childress Created the Myth of a Smithsonian Archaeological Conspiracy.

Jason makes a good case for the modern origin of this oft-repeated point of conspiracist dogma. I’m not claiming (and neither would Jason, I presume) that Childress is the explanation for every thread along these lines, but it seems pretty clear he’s a major fountainhead.

  1. Dr. Heiser, Thanks for pointing to Jason’s article. I found it to be very informative and educational. There was a point where I was seriously considering the views of the Smithsonian Conspiracy. Your work, along with Jason’s and many others like the both you of have helped me take a step back, rethink. Shalom.

  2. So many of you blogger hit-men paid off by the government funded Smithsonian. While you work as agents to protect the credibility of a corrupt museum you destroy true history.

    Its all about money and you and jason just one of many a paid Hench man

  3. You blogger hit-men which are paid off by the government funded Smithsonian are so damaging to science. While you work as paid agents to protect the credibility of a corrupt museum, you only destroy true history.

    Its all about money for you and jason – just one of many a paid Hench man to cover up the facts.
