Never forget the Great Caucasus Wall was built to keep them Eu-rope in.

Job 30:3

3. from want and famine they are gaunt; fleeing of late into the wilderness, desolate and waste.

4 Who pick mallows by the bushes, and juniper roots for their food.

5 They were driven forth from among men,(they cried after them as after a thief;)

6 To dwell in the clefts of the valleys, in caves of the earth, and in the rocks.

7 Among the bushes they brayed; under the nettles they were gathered together.

8 They were children of fools, yea, children of base men: they were viler than the earth.

The Bible is full of self-contradictory bullsh*t
It was written by a bunch of mentally deranged goat herders. It isn't worth the paper it's written on. That's why I lmao every time I hear some self-righteous, arrogant, self-absorbed, racist dyckhead like you recite scripture. The Bible was written during the most patriarchal time in human history and men in those times considered women worthless so you have to consider the source of the misogynist authors, you ignorant clown.

Negro, no one knows WHO really wrote that crap, even if we did, it doesn't make it true, when civilization collapses in the future, someone may find a copy of Harry Potter, translate it and assume it is a historical document.
Could not the tales be oral histories handed down anyway, with all the inherent problems of 'Chinese whispers'?
We know that the Bible copied much of its fables from Mesopotamia, the flood is a classic one, we also know that the Jews were held as slaves in Ur, amongst other places, so no doubt they got to hear much of their fairy tales from there.
There is no contemporaneous evidence, archaeological or documentary, to prove the existence of any of the 'authors', most of whom, IF they existed, certainly didn't have anglicized or Latinized names.
The Bible is totally contradictory in practically everything it says, I think that has been its success, you can make it support whatever lunatic idea you want, remember the Catholic Church used its contents to enslave, conquer and kill many peoples, in Europe, Africa and the Americas.
You are entitled to believe in whatever you want, but there is NO proof that the Bible is the word of God, there is NO proof that God exists at all. If your read the whole fairy tale you notice that in the OT He is a savage, immature and jealous God, yet in the NT, he is a loving and forgiving God. Seems to me that God has a split personality lol
Darwin's "theory" is an assumption taught to cave apes to lessen the guilt of whites being decendents of a rhesus monkey. "Everybody came from a monkey"! Hell naw. If japeth had returned to Africa, like Shem and Ham.....

Well Sambo, all I responded to was the accusation that the writers were goat herders. The fact is that there are no goat herders on that list. Stop making up garbage and trying to pass it off as truth. Not everyone here is as gullible as you are Leroy.

BTW
Bible critics once claimed that the Hittites mentioned in the Genesis account were a myth. Then archeology proved them wrong. This has been repeated so many times that it's laughable.

I have also found that most perceived biblical self contradiction stem from:

1. Ignoring cultural context
2. Ignorance of symbolic language
3. Ignorance of poetic language
4. Fanatical antibiblical mindset which obstructs clear thinking

For example, a change in writing styles is often offered as evidence of multiple authors by those unaware that different scribes were dictated to.

Actually, there are entire websites dedicated to very effectively exposing such biblical criticism as unwarranted drivel. But the ones I enjoy most are the archeological ones.

Examples of smug biblical criticism exposed as drivel:

The Hittite civilization was once considered fictitious simply because it was only mentioned in the Bible. That is until 1906 when the German archaeologist Hugo Winckler discovered the Hittite’s capital city along with their entire history recorded on cuneiform. Not only had the Bible been validated concerning the Hittites, but also the cuneiform tablets gave an early history conforming to that described by the Bible. Hittitology eventually became a major in several universities.

The two concurrent Kings in the book of Daniel. At one time, scholars thought the record in Daniel was wrong in mentioning two concurrent kings of Babylon, because neither had been found anywhere else in history. Then in 1854, J. G. Taylor unearthed writings of the king, Nabonidus, the last king of the Neo-Babylonian Empire, reigning from 556-539 BC, and his son, Belshazzar, the crown prince (Millard, 1985). Upon this discovery, Daniel's labeling of Belshazzar as king was still thought to be in error. But this too was clarified by a 1979 discovery of a statue in northern Syria which, in two languages, described Belshazzar's position. The Assyrian text described him as “governor,” which was his official title, while the Aramaic described him as “king,” the role which he had been given over them. This fine distinction in titles had been lost, except for Daniel's writings over 2,500 years ago. Not only was the mystery of the two concurrent kings solved, subsequent archeological discoveries confirmed Daniel’s detailed descriptions of the Babylonian Court and empire (Archer, 1973, p. 371).

Tablets of writing from Mari on the Middle Euphrates (c.1700-1600 BC) and Nuzi on the Tigris in northeastern Iraq, discovered in 1925, give corroborating accounts as to the life and customs recorded in the Bible. Henry T. Frank elaborates,“We have already seen that Abraham's haggling with Ephron concerning the purchase of the Cave of Machpelah was in accordance with common ancient practice. Apparently, Abraham wished to purchase only the cave itself in which to bury his wife Sarah. Yet governed by Hittite practice, he had to buy not only the cave but also the land and the arbors (gardens) associated with it. This assumption of feudal obligation described in Genesis 23:1-20 is exactly in accord with the recovered Hittite documents in which such details are stressed”(Frank, 1971, p.74). Prior to this discovery, the scholars of the historical-critical school of hermeneutics a.k.a.“higher criticism”(at least by their own estimation) discounted the biblical account in the life of Abraham completely.

1 But now they mock me,
men younger than I am,
whose fathers I would have refused to put
with my sheep dogs.

2 What use to me was the strength of their hands?
Their vigor had left them.

3 Emaciated from poverty and hunger,
they gnawed the dry land,
the desolate wasteland by night.
4 They plucked mallow[a] among the shrubs,
and the roots of the broom tree were their food.
5 They were expelled from human society;
people shouted at them as if they were thieves.
6 They are living on the slopes of the wadis,
among the rocks and in holes in the ground.
7 They bray among the shrubs;
they huddle beneath the thistles.
8 Foolish men, without even a name.
They were forced to leave the land.

9 Now I am mocked by their songs;
I have become an object of scorn to them.
10 They despise me and keep their distance from me;
they do not hesitate to spit in my face.
11 Because God has loosened my[b] bowstring and oppressed me,
they have cast off restraint in my presence.
12 The rabble[c] rise up at my right;
they trap[d] my feet
and construct their siege ramp[e] against me.
13 They tear up my path;
they contribute to my destruction,
without anyone to help them.
14 They advance as through a gaping breach;
they keep rolling in through the ruins.
15 Terrors are turned loose against me;
they chase my dignity away like the wind,
and my prosperity has passed by like a cloud.
