Defenseless Museums

If you came for my regular daily posting, its down below, or you can click here to get there right away. Sometimes I find something that I believe needs an additional post. Usually it has to be over the top in some way. This is such a time.

The following link will take you to an article of both dubious science and politics. It purports the discovery of batteries discovered to be over 2000 years old.

First clue of dubious science: These were found when "In the early 1900s, many European archaeologists were excavating ancient Mesopotamian sites, looking for evidence of Biblical tales like the Tree of Knowledge and Noah's flood."

First clue of dubious politics: We must, therefore, avoid war because, "In any war, there is a chance that priceless treasures will be lost forever, articles such as the "ancient battery" that resides defenceless in the museum of Baghdad."

You must now realize that this dubious discovery that so needs world peace for its protection is in Baghdad, "the region, whose civilizations gave us writing and the wheel." I guess we have to throw in dubious history as well.
