I agree with you of course. My understanding is that the first 5 chapters of the Bible are almost purely myth, and Mark will never know because of fundamentalist brainwashing.
I agree as well. On both points.

Thank you for this thoughtful and volumous reply. In actuality, the findings I mentioned - S&D, Zoar, Jericho, Ebla and (Ai, your mention) are all modern and post-date the quotes listed, so I don't see how the comments are out of date. Your Israeli sources are long recognized secular Jews and no friend of Biblical apologists. Their findings and summary dismissals of the Biblical accounts are based on absence of evidence rather than contrary evidence, pretty shaky and nothing to do with findings in the trenches when you look closely. You mentioned hard evidence? they have none.
They sweep away the Exodus account merely because they have trouble finding of what? a 40 year camping trip with a tent temple thousands of years ago? They discredit Scripture based on the mention of domesticated camels being used too early in the age - why?, if the Bible mentions them as domesticated is this not an authoritative account? No they say, because they can't find collaboration outside the Bible, so based on more non-evidence they claim its falsified! How arrogant! If that's not anti-Biblical bias I dont know what is. Dromedaries are also mentioned in the herds that Job lost,(3000) and that predates the Exodus. An inscription recently unearthed stating "The House of David" has thrown many of these skeptics off balance in recent days.
Gaps in the Egyptian side of history are very suspicious, many feel the fam. of the responsible leaders removed the account because they were embarrassed by it. As for Jericho, the recent findings of bread in the ovens doesn't fair well for the abandoned city story,(with the walls caved in).
There is encouraging and ongoing work going on at Ai. My statements concerning the S&D destruction are based on a film documentary I viewed with shock back in 2003 or so. Short run series.
This is not the place to debate this huge topic, but here again I show there is another side of this story in just a few words.
Mark
I would be nice if you included some references for all these assertions.

Why are you doing business in Nigeria, if you are not interested in their oils?
Those companies are exploiting from Nigeria and Nigerians to develop the US and Europe, no arguments about that.
they are int'l companies and sell that oil on the world market.

back to the point you attempted to make to get away from your original wrong point, no the African oil isn't as marketable, for the reasons i gave.

USA will be the worlds biggest producer and exporter of oil and gas within ten years, USA has huge shale oil and gas reserves and they are being extracted in very large amounts, the price of oil in USA is two thirds lower than Europe, this shale oil revolution is a geopolitical game changer, America are now to be a massive exporter again, and will have energy independence, no more reliance on middle east, now countries will be reliant on cheap American oil and gas, shale oil and gas has changed everything, USA are now in a great position, and only they have the technology to extract it at marketable prices, thankfully they have sent engineers to Britain to help us get at our huge shale reserves too, as we have the fourth biggest on earth, much of all England is sitting on massive reserves, and its in England, not Scotland like the north sea oil LOL, or our crude oil in the falklands
Are you sure oil is two thirds the cost in Europe? isn't oil a world market?

<quoted text> From your premise, there is nothing like origin but development.
You are fouled for ignorance.
Both words goes together, all languages are one way or the other, connected together.
But where it originated and developed, remain intact.
Why are you assuming to know what I think, I take that as extreme ignorance on your part. Of course there is origin, I even showed you a dictionary citation of the meaning of the word. However the origin of the English language is not what you assume it to be. Just because I know what the words means and you don’t does not mean that I deny the word, it simply means that you are ignorant.

I have offered you links to the history of the English language and the the definitions of the words origin and developed. Why have you got such an aversion to actually looking up the meaning of words?

The English language mostly developed in the UK but it originated for the most part in Europe

<quoted text> You are indeed a MORON.
The whole nation that takes English as lingua franca, native or official language, does so because of their influences with England.
How can the English adopt their own language?
The US, Canada, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, etc, adopted the English language.
Why are you so stupid, do you take tablets for it?

It’s a little thing called HISTORY. The English language developed over a couple of thousand years with roots in several languages. As the history of the English language links told you if you had bothered to read them rather than making up dogmatic BS

You can not bend it, twist it, or change it, because it is absolute or definite.
Then why do christians bend it with capitol letters?

What is the difference between truth and Truth? The first, truth is what is truthful, the second Truth is what christianity believes to be true. I have even seen this notation used by high bishops who should know better.

We already know that there are some words you don’t understand the meaning off. Why show anyone take notice of your views of a big T?

The facts are plan and easy to see, christianity distorts the English language to make itself feel better about lying.

No one can rule out the existence of the Almighty.
No is doesn’t it means that you have no counter argument

So you guess, you guess based on an unsubstantiated myth. That’s religion for you.

Oh yes I can, it’s easy, there is no god, there ya go, ruled out…

Now you are being even more stupid and petty that we come to expect form you.

How about we call garage French, god German, Impromptu, Latin

Glad to see that you have now started using the word development to help cover you stupidity

Define first, it means start or origin. Just admit your error and move on.
Nickers

Parts of that language. Words/ phrases are spoken in Greece, Italy, France, Germany etc and they were in history as I have already shown you, several times

So we have another word you need to learn the meaning of. Unique, look it up, we are not bothered what you mean by the word, mind reading is not a human trait. We are bothered about what the word actually means

I made no error, and I have shown you academic links to prove my point, you on the other hand have shown nothing but pedantic ranting.

Yes so I suggest you consider the meaning or “origin”

Or are you comfortable with showing your butt in public?

Please note that this is what I have been telling you for MONTHS, English DEVELOPED from several other languages. You have ranted and raved about origin yet now you are saying the origin was French, Portuguese, Spanish etc.

Good to see you have come round to the correct way of thinking even if you will never admit to being mistaken

Period. First in my dictionary, stands for beginning or origin, etc.
Bollocks, you have now asked 4 questions and I have answered each one. You do not like the answers because the answers prove your idiocy so you change the question and pretend it was not answered, only to be shown to be stupid again, and again and again. That my dear is your own pure and undulterated ignorance

As to origin I have given you several links to the dictionary definition. And it seems that slowly the meaning is sinking in to your thick skull because you are now adding the word developed to your posts

Except for occasionally poking him in the eye just for fun, I general ignore his nutty nonsense.
