When will the old XERXES LIE finally die among educated?

It doesn't take much to research and confirm that Xerxes and Artaxerxes I
were the same king. The Persian kings adopted new names when they began to
rule and we have records for all those kings with their alternative names.
One record names an "Arses (Xerxes) also known as Artaxerxes" dated to year
38. Only one possibility for that one: Artaxerxes I.
When you check the tombs at Naqshi-Rustam and see that Artaxerxes follows
Darius I followed by Darius II, and you compare the Biblical references of
Ezra 6:14,15 with Daniel 11:2 which shows the successor to Darius I would
stage a major campaign against Greece, then there is no choice but to
presume perhaps Xerxes and Artaxerxes were the same king. When you follow
that up checking the archaeology then it gets confirmed.
What this means is that Christians have been FOOLED all this time about the
chronology of the NB Period, which should date the 1st of Cyrus to 455 BCE
instead of 537 BCE. When 455 BCE becomes the 1st of Cyrus then the
messiah appears on time in 29 CE as Jesus Christ. Without the correct
chronology, the messiah does not fulfill the "70 weeks" prophecy.
Even so, all of the academic world, all the universities follow the revised
timeline as if it is more reliable than the Biblical timeline. That is, up
until now. Now we know why there is an 82-year discrepancy and we can
correct the timeline. It is incompetent, at this point, in fact to maintain
that the current NB timeline wasn't revised. There is just too much
information available now.
But one of the more fun things, for the really smart people, is something
that wasn't removed from the historical record, at least not the artistic
historical record. That is the unusual physical defect of Xerxes' right
hand which was longer than his left. Because of this, considered a
trademark and positive omen of sorts, he became known as ARTAXERXES,
LONGIMANUS (LONG HAND). But at the bas-reliefs at Persepolis, where all
the faces are hammered off to prevent comparisons of Xerxes and Artaxerxes,
Xerxes does change his right hand position rather suspiciously, which is
easily explained if this hand was being preserved in the artwork for
posterity. It proves that Xerxes, indeed, was Artaxerxes, Longimanus!.
Where are the archaeologists when you want them? They are busy making sure
their grants stay in place and so are biased by money, as usual. Those who
put up money usually have their own agendas and want their own results, so
sometimes the field of knowledge is no more than the field of propaganda for
one side or the other.
Here are the graphics of Xerxes' hand position change:
Still, WHEN ever is some honest or smart enough archaeologist or scholar
going to poke the academic community into facing up to the inevitable and
finally do the major task of revising the NB timeline? As well as facing
the reality that Plato, Xenophon and Aristotle were paid off by the Persians
to revise the Greek timeline as well?

DENIAL doesn't work that well in the world of "freedom of information."
The Bible requires that Xerxes and Artaxerxes were the same king, and the
archaeological evidence supports that. When are people going to wake up?
Or do they want to?
