Yes it can- and it should.  It is ridiculous speculation such as one 
would find on a list inhabited by UFO-ers and the like.  It really 
doesn't even deserve mention on this or any other reputable and 
respectable list.  Let the folk over at "bible history" discuss it's 
merits- it has none.

(still waiting for Dora to tell us where she studied Hebrew).
