"Before camels were available" what?
Were they on strike or something?
Camels were not native to Palestine. They were imported. The oldest known archeological evidence of camels in Palestine postdates their mention in the Bible...assuming the dates given in the Bible.

This is an indication that the books, or at least the passages about camels, were written much later than they claim.

Like you, the writers would just assume..."Oh, the camels have always been here."

So let me get this straight. It is OK for godbots to C+P pages and pages of bibull quotes but we can not post a few links.

Is that correct?

Sure, cupcake. So the fact that we have evidence in the form of saddles (1200bc) for the camels that you are saying didn't exist, shows you will fall for anything, snack shack!
In what region were those saddles developed?

This was Dave's last post. Kinda cryptic, huh? Maybe he built a Wayback Machine and can't return,

Just to make sure I am reading you right, you are accepting the idea that camels were not domesticated before 900bc?
Or do you want to add some caveat to this claim?

Not only will I show you where and when the saddles were discovered, I can show domestication as early as 3000bc.

So, lets see what you got skippy...

I never said, or even suggested, what you are attempting to assert I presented in the links. You asked about evidence. Which is what was supplied - 4 links - that spoke about that very thing, evidence.

For instance:

New archeological evidence is throwing cold water on the biblical image of Abraham, Jacob and Joseph riding camels through the desert.

A team of Israeli archaeologists has studied the oldest-known camel bones from this ancient period and the results are in — camels reportedly started plodding around the eastern Mediterranean region centuries after the Bible tells us they did.

After analyzing the facts from radioactive-carbon dating, Erez Ben-Yosef and Lidar Sapir-Hen of Tel Aviv University claim the domesticated animal arrived on the biblical scene near the 10th century B.C. Scholars believe Abraham lived at least six centuries before that(...)

Stories about camels in the Bible “do not encapsulate memories from the second millennium,” said Noam Mizrahi, an Israeli biblical scholar,“but should be viewed as back-projections from a much later period.”

Still, stories about the Jewish patriarchs contain more than 20 references to the domesticated camel, according to The New York Times. In Genesis 24, Abraham sends his servant to find a wife for his son Isaac. The servant traveled on his master’s camels.(...)

The research suggests that camels were introduced to the region suddenly, perhaps as Egyptians traveled along the Mediterranean trade routes.

But Bible defenders claim that even though the findings challenge the ancient text’s time line, they do not detract from the overall spiritual message.

If the biblical writers are not interested in the facts, but rather in getting a message across, then people of faith can concentrate, instead of trying to verify every last item in the Bible, on what the overall message of the story is, not whether it is historically true,” said Carol Meyers, a religion professor at Duke University."

"The discovery is actually far from new. William Foxwell Albright, the leading American archeologist and biblical scholar who confirmed the authenticity of the Dead Sea Scrolls, argued in the mid-1900s that camels were an anachronism. Historian Richard Bulliet of Columbia University explored the topic in his 1975 book, The Camel and the Wheel, and concluded that “the occasional mention of camels in patriarchal narratives does not mean that the domestic camels were common in the Holy Land at that period.”

Biblical History 101 teaches that the texts themselves were often written centuries after the events they depict."

That is an accurate overview of what the links presented.

Maybe you'd be better off sticking to the biblical myths, sugartits.
