The hunt on History Channel’s THE CURSE OF OAK ISLAND is already a wild goose chase; will it get even wilder this week?
Marty and Rick Lagina are looking for any bit of help that they can get to make their investment in treasure hunting on the infamous Oak Island a profitable one. Last week, they heard about a possible connection between the stories of treasure buried on the Oak Island site and Solomon’s Temple. They did not seem convinced with the “evidence” presented to them at the time, but they were definitely intrigued—and willing to hear more. This week, it looks like they may well be incorporating yet another facet of the search into their already tangled wild goose chase. According to the History Channel, on all-new episode, “The Eight-Pointed Star”:
After hearing that a treasure of biblical proportions was buried on Oak Island 2500 years ago, Rick and Marty Lagina look for evidence to prove it while also trying to locate the original Money Pit.
Last week, J. Hutton Pulitzer, author and professional treasure hunter, insisted to the Lagina brothers that a glyph carved in a rock off Oak Island, but only about 40 miles away, is significant to the hunt—and King Solomon’s Temple—because it indicates that the writing carved into the slab found on the Money Pit years ago was not a code as believed, but an ancient writing connecting it to King Solomon’s Temple. The glyph was an eight-pointed “star,” but the Lagina brothers made it clear that they needed more evidence showing that the carving was actually from a period supporting the claimed connection to the Oak Island treasure, and not just something someone carved into a rock 50 years ago as a hoax. Pulitzer insisted that he had the evidence that they needed to see and hear to connect all of the dots if they would give him an opportunity to give it to them point-by-point. Will he do that this week? And, will the dots be connected for the Lagina brothers?
THE CURSE OF OAK ISLAND airs on the History Channel on Tuesday nights at 9/8c.
