This is absurd. There is evidence for each of the example you cited. Can we account for every single body? No. So what? That isn't necessary. Do I need to post pictures of the mass graves?<quoted text>
"It means that, absent the evidence, it makes no sense to believe it DID take place."
Your above statement is a fine example of a shut mind. You need to say nothing more of your concept that if it doesn't exist it never did unless otherwise proved. People that think like you never do anything because it would mean you'd have to look for evidence of something you claim can't exist because you don't see it.
By the way, since you claim if such a huge number wandering around the Sinai would have HAD to of left OBVIOUS evidence right where we should find it by sight alone, explain the following for me I took from the web.
Each of these dictators and the numbers historians and researchers have declared are 'estimates' for how many people they killed, why don't you give me links to the 'supposed historical researched evidence' that states where these 'supposed' 82 million to 182 million dead decaying bodies are okay? This is modern research 'estimating' of killings that happened in the last century, not 2400 years ago. Their figures can't be to0 far off can they?
1. Adolf Hitler – around 11 million
2. Joseph Stalin – anywhere from 20 to 100 million
3. Chairman Mao Zedong – 50 to 70 million
4. Pol Pot – around 1 million
Here, let's do one easier for you. It's estimated up to 700,000 soldiers died in the civil war. Why don't you show me where these 700,000 graves are huh? They have to be somewhere to prove upwards of 700,000 soldiers died in that war right?
Here, try this one instead. Prior to 1492 it's an estimate that there were 15 to 20 million native Americans on this continent. Why don't you show the evidence for these 15 to 20 million natives existence? Some evidence for their existence exists is a fact. But evidence for 15 to 20 million? Where is that much evidence?
Same rules: Can you provide any evidence at all for the Exodus?
"People that think like you never do anything because it would mean you'd have to look for evidence of something you claim can't exist because you don't see it."
OK, let's see it.
