    You should have seen them scramble when evidence surfaced there were actually no domesticated camels around the time the Bible said there were.

    Domesticated Camels Came to Israel in 930 B.C., Centuries Later Than Bible Says

    Another charmer would be the Bible's claim of eliminating all the Canaanites.
    Lo and behold we find Canaanites are living today contrary to what the Bible said.

    Actually the Canaanites were alive and well in the very next chapter after Joshua wiped them out .. Judges talks about them living side by side with the Israelites.

    They like calling themselves 'doctors' just like Kent Hovind and just as entertaining. However Jack Van Impe is much more intelligent than Hovind is.

    But I'll give Jack Van Impe and his wife Rexella some points as they do put on a good show compared to other televangelists.

    The way I see it is that if the Bible is seen true in what we can check it is trustworthy in what we cannot check.

    Did you have an issue where you feel otherwise?

    "Historians believe these stories took place between 2000 and 1500 B.C., based on clues such as passages from Genesis, archaeological information from the site of the great Sumerian city of Ur (located in modern Iraq), and an archive of clay tablets found at the site of Mari (in modern Syria).:"


    There was NO Ur of the Chaldeans in the time of Abraham.


    The Chaldean dynasty did not rule Babylonia (and thus become the rulers of Ur) until the late 7th century BC, and held power only until the mid 6th century BC

    Some Canaanites struck a deal to be servants for the Jews and helped with the temple service. A deal made during the time of Joshua.

    Often the Bible will refer back to a place with the modern name.

    We might say there were dinosaurs who lived in Arizona a thousand years ago
    even through there was not yet an Arizona. The readers know that. It just helps them visualize where the place was.

    Joshua is a fiction.. The population of Jerusalem was less than 2000 people.. He had no army.

    The story also says that Solomon enslaved some Canaanites.

    Not quite following, but if I understand you, I can say that all it takes for the Bible to be untrustworthy is a single instance of untruth, which, as it turns out, happens to be the case.

    Not sure. I think your statement may need a bit of punctuation.

    Hey, thats real footage of the ark and that makes it evidence. The other guy even mention the mane on the lion.

    But anyway, just because the ark is not found dont mean its not somewhere unfound.

    Nope. Would you like to know why there is not any scientific evidence for the flood?

    Oh we have debated the exodus in the past. The jubal al luz mountain is a supurb candidate for mount sinai. Im fully convinced of its authenticity for the exodus.

    But, i wont debate it now, not today.
