Genesis was written somewhere around 1400 BCE - so the religious folks have had THREE AND A HALF THOUSAND YEARS to build a good argument. Nice gig, come to think of it. Low overhead, qualifications are simple, the work is steady and there are no production deadlines.

I would contend that Genesis was Translated around 1400 BCE... But was Written in the 7 books of Creation by Sumerian scribes that may very well have translated it from older stories that we have yet to find...

No one just sat down in history and puts forth stories of history without doing so from other stories they had been told... The writers of the old testament told of the past from stories they were told... So Who can say was the first person in a very old version of the telephone game.... Following the rules of the game we can go backwards and consider the older the texts found of a story line then it would be the Closest to the Original events that perpetuated the story... We have found the Sumerian texts (some 20,000) but we now in the last few years we Know that People were building cities and Huge monumental structures many 1000's of years before Sumeria existed.... Maybe someday we will find the same story lines at an earlier date ....

Defend? When people do not allow you to be offensive they are defending themselves against you.
If you do not go around trying to push your cult on to people they would not be forced to push you away

Did Pontius Pilate Really Exist?
Few who have read the New Testament accounts of the trial of Jesus can forget the name Pontius Pilate. All four gospel accounts make reference to Pilate and he is also a prominent figure in the Gospel of Luke. But critics doubted his true existence for years. In fact, for approximately two thousand years, the only references to Pilate were found in such writings as Josephus and Tacitus. But aside from an occasional reference to Pilate in certain written records, there were no inscriptions or stone monuments that documented his life. But in 1961, all that changed. In that year, Pilate moved from a figure who was known solely from ancient literature, to a figure who was attested by archaeology

The Roman officials who controlled Judea during Jesus’ time most likely made their headquarters in the ancient town of Caesarea,(this is evidenced in two references by Josephus to Pilate’s military and political activity in that city). Located in Caesarea was a large Roman theater where archeologists found a two-foot by three-foot slab of rock with an inscription bearing the name of Pontius Pilate. A stronger piece of evidence for the New Testament’s accuracy would be difficult to find. Now known appropriately as “The Pilate Inscription,” this stone slab documents that Pilate was the Roman official governing Judea, and even uses his more complete name of Pontius Pilate, as found in Luke 3:1!

Christian Documents Pass the Test
The Gospels pass the external test of archeology, Jewish writings, Gentile writings, government records, and many other informants that we can’t even cover in this short article. The Gospels have shown with incredible accuracy that whenever there is information that can be verified by other sources, these sources confirm the truth of scripture. Men such as Sir William Ramsay have been convinced of the accurateness and trustworthiness of the Bible as a result of these findings. There is no doubt that archaeology proves the accuracy of the Bible and confirms the Bible as an inspired revelation from God.

Keep in mind that the New Testament does not necessarily claim to be a systematic representation of first-century history. It is not, per se, merely a history book. It does claim, however, that the historical facts related in the text are accurate, with no margin of error (2 Timothy 3:16-17; Acts 1:1-3). It is safe to say that, due to this extraordinary claim, the New Testament has been scrutinized more intensely than any other text in existence (with the possible exception of its companion volume, the Old Testament). But the overwhelming result of this close examination is an enormous collection of amazing archaeological evidence that testifies to the truthfulness of the various historical references in the New Testament. Over and over, biblical references that can be checked, prove to be historically accurate in every detail:




You may press the words of Luke in a degree beyond any other historian’s, and they stand the keenest scrutiny and the hardest treatment, provided always that the critic knows the subject and does not go beyond the limits of science justice (Sir William Ramsay, 1915).



Almost 3,000 years ago, the sweet singer of Israel, in his description of God’s Word, put it perfectly:

You sir are a liar. Not one thing in your post is true. In fact your cult has been caught faking things like the shroud of turin. As for what some one said hundreds of years ago when they where murdered if they spoke against the church?

As if I am really concerned with what you think! Do some research and verify for yourself, instead of hiding behind your keyboard and calling people liars, that you would never dare do in a public forum.

If you are using sources older than fifty years it explains your error here. As we dig and scrape in the old lands the support for scriptural accuracy diminishes.

The Bible is an awesome collection but it is far from perfect. Not even the Synoptic Gospels are in perfect agreement on key issues.

to be forgiven of your sins, for the Lord to remember them no more, to have the Holy Ghost comfort you each day, is in deed a honor that no one deserves, but is given freely by God who sent His only Son, Jesus Christ to die for us and bear all of your sins on the cross.

LOL! There IS no content! The only argument is:

"The Gospels have shown with incredible accuracy that whenever there is information that can be verified by other sources, these sources confirm the truth of scripture."

You don't see the fallacy of this statement? Archaeological copies of copies say the same thing. If they don't, they aren't "verified".
This is a terrific example of one of YaA's favorite sayings, "Whatever you want to believe!"
