    Not necessarily; if the events attributed to have occurred around Moses have been demonstrated not to have actually happened, then life attributed to Moses did not actually happen.

    I see. So if Daniel Boone fought a bear and no one seen it, it's a myth. Imagine that.

    Now you are making the error of shifting the burden of proof. In the world of archaeology just as in the world of science it is up to the people making a positive claim to provide evidence for their beliefs. Since there is evidence, and a lack of expected evidence that tells us there was no Moses the fact that believers have nothing but a book of myths puts the burden of proof upon them and they have none. Therefore it has been shown to be a myth.,

    It is almost certainly a myth. A sane person would not believe the story without reliable evidence.

    I'm not shifting anything. I'm plainly saying if the stories attributed to Moses are myth, that doesn't mean Moses is myth. Those claiming Moses is myth have the burden of proof.

    Thats good to know about you. Everything in your life that happened without a witness really didn't happen. That probably makes about half your life false and myth. Imagine that :)

    No, since Moses is part of the Exodus his existence is meaningless without it. You are once again trying to shift the burden of proof. The answer is not going to change.

    Sure He does.

    You said it, same as an unrepentant or ignorant. Repent and accept Jesus and your the same as everyone else.

    Science has no weight when it comes to a religious discussion about sin. So don't even bother wasting your time.

    Please, you know that is not what I said or implied. Some nights you do not appear to be able to reason. It looks like tonight is one of those nights.

    Do you think that you can reason logically?

    Sure your answer won't change. You think if no witness then it's myth. By that over half your life is false and myth.

    You implied no witness, it's myth. Half your life had no witness. Half your life is myth. Imagine that.

    Since you refuse to learn from your errors my answer will not change.

    Can your reason logically?

    You continue to fail to do so.

    If Egypt really had lost all its first born sons, lost its army, and lost all its slave labor, and this all went unnoticed by her rival nations; this would indeed be a myth.

    My errors lol. Your errors are thinking if no one saw it, it didn't happen.
    If a tree falls in the woods and you didn't see it, did it still fall? It's a simple question.

    I finally figured out what direction I should go, when I studied the revelations of the Baha'i faith
    I question those claims as I personally believe that scientific discovery tends to lead one to a better understanding of the universe which reveals more about God, ie "God is not a trickster". So in some cases it might be relevant, but I forget what the claims we are talking about are regarding science.

    You are talking bible bunk there. But in reality, if everyone l8st their first born sons today, it would cripple anyone.

    The topic is sin. Which isn't quantifiable by science, therefore science has no weight in the discussion of sin.
