During this week, 23 November 2018, it was announced that fragments of the "Dead Sea Scrolls" were found to be forgeries, during an authentication  process in November 2017.

What this means is not that the scrolls themselves, in their entirety, are fake. It only applies to the five fragments that have been removed from the Bible Museum in Washington DC's display, are forgeries.

Dead Sea Scrolls and "fake news".

Atheists should be careful not to brush the entire collection with the "fake news" brush. That the museum is having artefacts authenticated is a good sign. It shows transparency.
