Sins of Commission and Omission: Digitally Generated Marginal ‘Fishes’ and Overlooked Handles on the so-called ‘Jonah Ossuary’
I am grateful to Dr Cargill for giving me a chance to see the post in advance of its posting. He is an expert on issues of digital technology and how it is used to represent archaeological work and he presents the evidence here with his characteristic clarity, patience and force.
It appears that Dr Cargill's paper is already making an impact. Not long after it was posted earlier this afternoon, several of the images to which he draws attention disappeared from the Jesus Discovery Website, to be replaced with others. Note in particular the new version of the "Fish in the Margins" photograph, which this afternoon replaced the version that Dr Cargill discussed in his post:
|Original "Fish in the Margins" picture with digital ink|
|Replacement version, now with digital ink removed|
