There are 21 references to camels in the first books of the Bible, including this one:

"And he made his camels to kneel down without the city by a well of water at the time of the evening, even the time that women go out to draw water." - Genesis 24:11

The problem? All of the references to camels were made up. New research by archaeologists at Tel Aviv University shows that domesticated camels didn't appear in the eastern Mediterranean until the 10th century B.C., at least several centuries after the time they appear in the Bible.

Oops.

I guess they'll need a new entry.
