Some of the Bible's anecdotes might not be entirely true is a shocking claim made by researchers, who suggest that the timelines of some Bible stories don't match up with the reality of camel development history.
Suggesting that camels weren't domesticated for man's use in the region until well after the events in which they feature, biblical scholar Noam Mizrahi makes the wild claim that the Bible in fact offers a "back projection" of events, rather than a completely true timeline of religious history. Who'd have thought it. [NYT via The Verge]
