Lets's talk about the Oak Island treasure for a minute;
What is the primary piece of evidence that is used to support the idea of a treasure buried 100+ feet underground on a tiny island in Nova Scotia? That a couple of kids found a depression in the ground way back in 1795, and when they started digging found a layer of stone and a layer of wood. That's right, the original reports dating to the mid-1800's say only one layer of wood was uncovered, contrary to what the History Channel will tell you. Regardless, a depression in the ground with a layer of stone and wood is a natural formation caused by a sinkhole! Nova Scotia is covered in sinkholes, and at least twice since the original money pit was "discovered" there have been reports of identical findings in the region with a depression in the ground followed by stone and wood. There is even a report of a sinkhole forming on Oak Island while a farmer was plowing her fields and was dropped into the earth, oxen and all.
I already know what you are going to say next; what about the flood tunnels? Why would such an elaborate system of tunnels exist if there is no treasure at the bottom of the pit? Let's take another look at the island's geology. The area around the island is well known for it's limestone caverns which a construction crew hit a few years ago to reveal an extensive network of naturally forming "tunnels." On the island Dan Blankenship even lowered a camera into one and recorded what he saw as chests full of treasure but were really lumps of rock. If you regularly watch the TV show, you'll know that a few years ago they were obsessed with the cavern at the bottom of Blankenship's borehole 10-X but even they were smart enough to identify it as a natural formation and they seem to ignore it now.
We all need to be careful to see what is really there, not what we wish was there. In this case, the "money pit" is just that, a literal money pit.

How do you account for the items which have come out of the earth at depth then?
For the dendrochronology results from the wooden logs in Smiths Cove?
There is so much other stuff which points towards there being some serious digging and hiding stuff on the island many centuries ago.
The swamp is also an interesting place which has anomalies within it.
However, I will agree that this is a TV program and they want people to watch it so some talking-up of things is going to be part of the entertainment.
To their credit, they do get science to take a look at most of what they pull out and piecing together the items and history is interesting in itself (since we wont be getting any gold they find!)
Moving onwards and upwards
