My Experience with Ron Wyatt

By Dr. Jerome Niswonger (Link)

I am an Ophthalmologist, not an Archaeologist; however, in my profession I am required to analyze scientific data. The success of my practice and the resources offered my patients is a function of this ability to correctly evaluate information published in scientific journals. I have been trained in this area and have earned a number of degrees including BA, MD, MPH, and have served at three universities doing research and in training medical students, interns, and residents. This is related only to indicate some experience in data analysis and evaluating scientific literature.

I was introduced to Ron Wyatt’s Discoveries via video in 1991. I was most dubious when a friend told me about Wyatt’s findings, and it was only with a great deal of urging that I even “condescended” to look at the video. Also, I wondered how one individual could have found all these sites, and why these findings were not recorded in National Geographic Magazine. After viewing the video, I came to the conclusion that Ron Wyatt was either an extremely skillful charlatan or that he was reporting very important truth. However, not withstanding my skepticism, I followed the Biblical injunction to “prove all things” (1 Thessalonians 5:21) and decided that one could not merely follow the opinions of others but must “see for myself.”

In May and June of 1991 I went with Ron Wyatt and a tour group to the Middle East. We visited the reported Noah’s Ark site in Turkey; in Israel, the Garden Tomb area and the remains of Sodom and Gomorrah; in Egypt, the Red Sea Crossing site at Nuweiba and on to Cairo to see the pyramids and the area of the grain storage built by Joseph, as recorded in the Bible. I returned several times to these areas, including two scuba diving trips to evaluate the Red Sea Crossing site. I also read many articles, both scientific and non-scientific, that were relevant to these areas.

I have found all of these areas to be exactly as Ron Wyatt described them and believe the weight of evidence supports his conclusions. In 1991 I viewed the ark-shaped formation that is exactly the length of Noah’s Ark as described in the Bible. Also, I saw a fossilized rivet, plus the anchor stones in a nearby village. In 1993 I saw the sulfur balls in the white ashen formations located below Masada in Israel along the Dead Sea. I stood by the pillar, thought to have been placed by Solomon to commemorate the Red Sea Crossing, and dove in the Gulf of Aqaba to photograph what appears to be coral encrusted chariot remains located in an area that gently slopes underwater.

Wyatt’s detractors reject his conclusions primarily on the basis that he was not a trained archaeologist and did not have an advanced degree in this area. They scornfully called his conclusions “pseudo-science” because he was labeled a “Fundamentalist” in his theology and his belief in the Bible as it is written. They also point out, quite correctly, that no major university or scholarly institute concurred with his conclusions. While it is true that Ron Wyatt was self-taught, he was extremely knowledgeable in Biblical history and well read in Biblical archaeology. One must be careful not to accept or reject a person’s findings based upon the acceptance of scholars. Many of the great scientific advancements were initially rejected by the scientific community. The Bible is replete with examples of how God does not often use men of renown or of worldly education, but rather uses men of simple faith to do His work. In 1 Corinthians Chapter 1 we read:

1 Corinthians 1:19,20
For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

This is a most import admonition when evaluating ideas both Biblical and scientific. In determining the validity of Ron Wyatt’s findings, let us follow the example in the Bible found in the Gospel of John the first chapter.

John 1:35-39
Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples; And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God! And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou? He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.

In examining the discoveries of Ron Wyatt, I ask you to follow the advice of Jesus when He said “come and see.” Look at the evidence and judge for yourself whether the conclusion is compelling or not. May each one examine the data in a prayerful, thoughtful manner and compare these findings with the Biblical description. Do not accept or reject evidence based on the opinions of others, but remember, “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.”
