    Is there proof that any event that is claimed to have happened in the Torah having actually happened?

    I would beg to differ.

    Flooding the world and creating the world would have obviously taken more than that circle.

    Also archeology shows that some events in the Torah probably where partially based on fact and others where not.

    Yes, well creating the universe too. After that, limited God's interactions with man to this small area.

    There's no evidence of Moses, none of the exodus. Just curious if there was something I'm unaware of. If one is to give the Abrahamic religions some credibility I figured the Torah would be a good place to start.

    I don't suppose you know of something more specific?

    It seems that the exodus may have been based on an actual exodus from Babylon.

    Thanks, I'll look into it.
    It's really hard to find unbiased information on this subject.

    You mean G-d's interactions as described in the Books He gave the Jews about Jews and Judaism is limited to the places Jews have been to?

    Is that supposed to be odd?

    It didn't only refer to the Jews.

    Yes in that God didn't seek a more global presence.

    What? That the Exodus was based on an actual exodus from Babylonia? Baseless drivel!

    There is absolutely no evidence it was actually base do any such exodus from Egypt of any proportions or nature as described in the the Old Testament.

    In fact most of the the evidence is on the contrary, with the route based on old trading routes from Egypt through the Sinai with no evidence of such a journey with this amount of people from Egypt to
    the region of Palestine, nor evidence of Moses, nor a well documented time this tool place. A lot of conjecture and band aid history here to justify this. All the evidence indicates the Hebrew tribes is the history of pastoral tribes from the Hills of Judah that evolved into the Kingdom of Israel to the the Kingdom of Judah within the region of Palestine.

    Can you give me an example of a story that doesn't involve or relate to Jews in there?

    From Genesis it seems like G-d expects people to seek Him rather than Him seeking people.
