I think that I saw a show in the 70s about that place.  Did they ever solve the mystery?

Not really.  But some of the things theyíve found on the island are incredible.  A stone road that was excavated estimated to be several hundred years old.  Roman and Chinese coins, a 400 year old lead crucifix traced back to France, etc.

Itís a fake, dramatized show that appeals to the gullible and those who watch fake history on tv, but would never pick up a  properly researched book.

Quote
Few seem bothered by the fact that there is no reason to believe there has ever been treasure on Oak Island. Skeptics call it ďHoax Island,Ē because for two centuries, the obsessed and gullibleóincluding former U.S. President Franklin Delano Rooseveltóhave been persuaded by the flimsiest evidence, stories told by pseudohistorians and treasure hunters, to invest millions of dollars in digs.

Historian Dan Conlin, who wrote about the island in his 2009 book Pirates of the Atlantic and teaches a class on it at Saint Maryís University in Halifax, is blunt. ďItís nothing beyond an interesting example of pop culture obsession and greed,Ē he says. ďThereís nothing there beyond a natural sinkhole filled up with 200 years of junk from treasure hunting. Itís just the generations of treasure hunters who have created a self-sustaining myth that keeps going and going.Ē

Itís not fake.  They carbon date many things that have been discovered.  Unless youíre one of those religious crazies that donít believe in carbon dating.  But I couldnít care less whether thereís any vast treasure there.  Iím more interested in the various countries that were there a few hundred years ago.  Thatís a great conspiracy theory youíve got there!

The Curse of Oak Island, which comes from the same production company that produces the hit pseudohistory series Ancient Aliens, presents various outlandish theories, especially those centred on the Knights Templar, a disbanded European religious order that Dan Brown put at the heart of his best-selling thriller, The Da Vinci Code. ďItís classic pseudohistory. Itís taking archeological sites out of context, building on coincidences and speculation with no real evidence,Ē says Conlin.

Otherwise serious journalists help keep the stories alive. CBCís The Current recently aired a book promotion interview with American journalist Randall Sullivan, who worked on the series. He thinks that the island may contain proof that Francis Bacon wrote William Shakespeareís plays.

Conlin canít make himself watch the Oak Island show because it is so absurd. ďI saw one expert they brought in holding up a railway spike Ö and saying, this is the keel spike of a Spanish galleon,Ē says Conlin.

Between this and your defence of the Netflix Atlantis show, one really gets a sense of your media habits and why you are the way you are (extremely dumb).

Peopleís wild theories have nothing to do with the actual archeological work thatís been done.  Carbon dated wood is carbon dated wood.  Chinese, Spanish, British coins, are coins.  It doesnít mean there is some kind of treasure there, but there is evidence of extensive work by various groups of people thatís very interesting.  Itís sad that you children get so distracted by fables.

When they hold up a railroad spike and say it came off a ship, thatís not ďevidenceĒ of ships.  Itís evidence theyíre full of sh!t.  But you donít question what you see on tv. 

Do you watch the alien show that the same people make?

Thatís not what happens.  Long planks of wood are carbon tested, and the totality of artifacts found, including a ships wharf are studied and hypothesis are made.  But I get it, itís a giant conspiracy, between the federal government, the Nova Scotia government and academic institutions like Acadia University, to fool everyone! 😂

Look, itís obvious youíve never watched the show for any length of time, and thereís ok.  But youíre grossly ill informed as to how the show works.

A veritable multiverse of quality TV options across dozens of platforms and you're watching History Channel junk, that's the real Boomer mindset

You really do think itís realÖ.  youíre actually being sincere in showing how truly stupid you are.   Do you believe the other shows on History?  Ancient Aliens?  Bigfoot?

I donít know what you mean by believe itís real.  Do I believe thereís a vast treasure?  I highly doubt it.  Do I believe Europeans were there a few hundred years ago?  Yes, the evidence is quite clear.  Are you suggesting that Acadia University is faking carbon dating data?  Thatís quite a conspiracy! 😂😂😂
