You have read two articles about the mystery of the Oak Island treasure:


The Lost Treasure of the Knights Templar
http://istina.rin.ru/eng/ufo/text/180.html


The Secrets of Oak Island
http://www.csicop.org/si/show/secrets_of_oak_island/


Look closely at instances in which the two articles focus on different information about the Oak Island treasure. Write an essay in which you evaluate the arguments and claims in these texts. Determine whether the reasoning each author uses is sound, and explain which author you think uses the most persuasive evidence to support his or her  argument. Use evidence from the articles to support your analysis.
