Thhere you go with the joint and several again...
"some" scholars state they were made up. And the only story in question is the book of Genesis.
And the other stupid notion you overlook is that the "first" of those two books predated the second of those two books by at least 800 years.
And the last revolt agianst the Romans took place about 100 after Jesus lived... unless of course you'd say it wasn't the Bible you refer to.
So scholars say this and that, but in the end it's about truly going back into analyzing the intent and experience of people 2000 years ago
Not a fraud who PRETENDED to find books that HE WROTE HIMSELF passing itself off as ancient writings.
or let me put it to you another way since you are too dense...
Joseph Smiths credibility is easily shattered by the fact that he was recent enough and his technique was obvious enough to be examined for what it was. So the writings themselves are easily broken down.
But trying to put the Bible itself on the same level as Joseph Smith's fraudaulent activity is impossible since
1. We KNOW those writings were at least 2000 years old.
2. The founders did not generate a religion to enrich themselves.
3. There is one God and the writings were made to reaffirm that, not make us think there were other gods.
4. There wasn't an attempt to capitalize on people's doubt.
5. Again, Genesis doesn't claim to be the first source of all the stories therein.
Christianities core teachings come from two books. Both books scholars state were made up and fabricated by men copying stories from Mesopotamia and men fabricating a Jewish man that led the last revolt against the Romans. They claim the geographical information was used to validate their fabricated stories about men with superpowers that none of the rest of humanity has ever had. Those scholars claim these writings were put together into two halves to create the Christian Bible as a whole book to deceive people into thinking a god with magical powers exists and that this god with magical powers can give us magical powers, especially if you give the Christian church your $:)
