      There Was No “Exodus”
      Both Jewish and Christian “scholars” have been desperately trying to find evidence to “prove” that Exodus took place. “Between 1967, when Israel captured the Sinai Peninsula from Egypt, and 1982, when it was returned in the peace treaty, Israeli archaeologists made dozens of …

    Apr 13, 2001 · Doubting the Story of Exodus Many scholars have quietly concluded that the epic of Moses never happened, and even Jewish clerics are raising questions. Others think it combines myth, cultural memories and kernels of truth. By Teresa Watanabe Los Angeles Times April 13, 2001

      Opinions differ on Canada’s air role against ISISexodus-fact-fiction
      It was the American scholar William Foxwell Albright who would influence a generation of both American, and later, Israeli scholars, with his belief that archeology could prove the veracity of the biblical text, including the events of the Exodus. Albright believed in the historicity of the Exodus.

    I remember all the times when the said scholar said there is no blah blah blah etc. etc... until the evidence surfaced and kicked them in the mouth. They never learn.
    It's sad that you are on their side.
    They never came back and said, "Well you know what, we were proven wrong about this and this and this, so there must be some truth to this, or there may be. In fact, for the most part, the record is intact". How sad. I feel sorry for the "educated".
    God has a word for those "educated" Proverbs 1:7 ...and he laughs at them. I do too.

    The Exodus story is really dumb, but its a good way to teach children about deliverance. When they are grown they can sort it out for themselves.

    There are a lot of things we are not sure of. One thing we are sure of, when it comes to the Biblical record, is that the record was preserved because people kept records, by gathering information of events, generations into the past.
    We observe this from the Jewish people living even to this day.
    We can trace history of genealogies going way back for centuries, and where does it lead? Right back to Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

    Then according to you, Jesus was dumb, and I don't even have to mention David, Solomon, etc. Hence, by your highly esteemed standard, God is dumb.
    Now would be a good time to remove "Christian" from your profile.

    Perhaps you did not read the texts, i posted. then again, perhaps you did not read most of the texts in the Bible. go look again, and tell me if everything you read was a parable.

    Sounds just like a true atheist. Perhaps next you will be saying, there is no God.
    Then the true colors will be revealed. No more camouflage.

    That makes more sense. If people misbehave then the Law applies. You don't condemn the person, but you condemn their actions (their actions that hurt others). Sadly when "sin" is used, many times it is used also to condemn their belief or their feelings. This kind of judging feels wrong to me. All are children of God, so when you judge someone (as a person instead of his actions) then you judge indirectly God (who created that person). But even judging the harmless actions of others can be tricky when seen from a spiritual point of view.

    When someone harms others, then it's natural to stop that person from doing this
    (apply the "golden rule", don't do unto others what you don't want them to do unto you)

    Rather than just "throw mud", why not be reasonably.
    Your statement :The bible was never intended to be history. Joshua is also a myth.
    Let's reason. On what basis do you say this?
    ________________________________________________________________________

    The Bible contains history. It's full of it - intentionally. That's why archaeologist, can go dig in locations of Biblical lands, and dig up history. This same book contains a record of characters whose names are discovered in these findings.
    You have no basis for dismissing characters.

    I don't think so....

    ''When we compare the archeological evidence at Jericho with the biblical narrative describing the Israelite destruction of Jericho, we find a quite remarkable agreement,'' Dr. Bryant G. Wood, an archeologist at the University of Toronto, wrote in the March-April issue of Biblical Archeology Review.

    So all you have to do is change the dates of the phony Exodus...

    There are nine levels of Jericho going back 12,000 years to the Natufians.

    There is NO proof that Joshua was a real person nor that he killed off the Canaanites. Jerusalem's population at the time of King David was less than thousand people.. What happened to the 2 million who left Egypt?

    How would they have known, back then?
    (Must've been shallow waters...otherwise, I don't believe that.)

    It sure is easy to get you to believe the veracity of secular sources. But the Bible, you discredit as fiction. Why is that?

    So much for 2 Timothy 3:16, eh?

    Archaeology has never been able to prove any of the stories are true. They have never found a trace of the Jews being in Egypt.. In fact.. both Canaan and Sinai were under Egyptian authority back then.

    I can't help your "belief".. but pearl divers freedive to 30 feet in Bahrain..

    Also, if you know anything of the history of ARAMCO, you'd know they tapped into these fresh water spring offshore back in the late 1930s.

    You didn't bother with the links, did you?

    The pearls collected in the waters of Bahrain are very unique. They tend to have a special lustre which many argue comes from the mixture of salt and fresh water around the island due to fresh water springs on the sea bed. Pearls are also unique in Bahrain largely due to the fact that Bahrain
