That site seems to be just a few clicks short of a full-fledged conspiracy theory site. I'm all for "getting at the truth" and making room for unrecognized facts, but conspiracy proponents don't seem to realize that expecting to find a conspiracy under every rock can soon enough lead folks to dismiss looking under rocks all together. Sensationalizing discovery is a hindrance to acceptance of discovery. The solution to being in a ditch in not to ramp across the road into the opposite ditch.

The Qumran lady is a bit hard to track down:

https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Gloria_Moss (scroll down about 2/3s to the Qumran/Essene/Theraputae articles.  She's in the healing side of the arguments (as also her article here), though most of her work isn't.

The idea of history dissonance tours comes as an invitation from historians who like to discuss history as 'of course I know'. But in this case, this author is using paper tigers long ago RIP. Qumran indeed has its dissonances; just not the ones discussed.
