It's strange that it took 5000 years to come up with a literate messenger. All those years were wasted with distorted message.Yup, since the Bible was written by men, not those messengers.
It is not only the best way, it is the only way to get messages from God. It doesn't matter what happened in the past because the past is gone.
The past does not even exist except in people's minds. Only the present exists.
We no longer have to rely upon messages that men wrote because now we have the writings of the messenger.
