You wouldn’t happen to know what the average weight of a human skeleton?
My guess it’s anywhere between 10 to 15 pounds. You do realize after decomposition that’s all that’s left is hair and bones? Not really a lot of weight to carry by a group of men.
I’m not going to call you a dumbass or stupid such as you did to me. But I will say that you are close minded to plausible possibilities simply because it goes against your ideology.
It’s incredible the lengths some people will go to shore up their weak and vulnerable ideology. I mean what are you afraid of to admit it’s not out of the realm of possibility for Israel to have taken their dead with them?
Since you claim you are a biblical scholar. You do remember when Jacob died he was transported from Egypt to his homeland in Canaan where he was buried?
Genesis 50:
5.“My father made me swear, saying, Lo, I die: in my grave which I have digged for me in the land of Canaan, there shalt thou bury me. Now therefore let me go up, I pray thee, and bury my father, and I will come again.”
6.“And Pharaoh said, Go up, and bury thy father, according as he made thee swear.”
Maybe they think that bones don't decompose....

Maybe they think that all bones become fossilized....

Silly athitards.

6.“And Pharaoh said, Go up, and bury thy father, according as he made thee swear.”
The Hebrew did revere the bones of the dead, but the real problem
with the exodus tail is in the actual chronology of events along the way. The actual history of conquest of cities and the alleged timeline by Moses written in the bible do not match.
In fact what is written to have occurred in 40 years, was actually a period of over 1000 years. Now if we were to even believe people ever lived 800 years , it would stretch that figure by 1/5th.
Are you to have us believe Moses lived for over 1000 years?

I think not, I think your historical event is not only exaggerated,
but in fact mostly a complete fabrication. It did however serve it's purpose for many years, which was the motivation of the Hebrew people. In fact it was so good at motivating people, the religion was copied and sprang into two more complete belief systems.

Knowing what we know now, we do know how these tales were used to create an alignment to a common cause. the very same tactic your Christianity used to forge an empire. Yes knowing is not without question , believing is to follow without question.
You choose to believe, we choose to question belief.
We find truth from myth by questioning , you find myth the truth without question.

Silly athitards.
What makes it hard , is when you create logical fallacy to support the myth you choose to believe.
You make shit up to cover the holes in the story.
Such is the desperation of patching up belief, even when faced with impossibility, you will fabricate a band aid to hold your belief together.

So, if they carried their bones with them where did they put the 10-15,000,000 pounds of bones when they got to the "promised land"?

Wow, so the existence of people who don't believe in your deity nor follow your religion really scares you that much. Your entire rant is one strawman fallacy after another.
It must be hate or fear that drive you to lie so much about a whole group of people like that. And since your religion supposedly teaches you to not hate, it must be fear.

1) Show me *one* atom in your body that is alive. For that matter, show me *one* molecule that is alive. Yet *you* are made from these pieces of 'dead matter'. So, yes,'dead matter' can produce life.
2) Ever hear of quantum fluctuations? They are an observed phenomenon where something does, indeed, come from nothing.
<quoted text>
No, we are simply sick and tired of religious nuts thinking they can control everything in a *secular* society. You get to play your religious games in your churches, synagogues, and at home. For that matter, you can but a *private* building and do whatever you want with it: put up crèches, crosses, and any religious symbol you feel like. Nobody is attempting to take that right away from you. I would even fight to support it.
BUT, you cannot ask the *government*, even in the guise of public schools, to promote your viewpoint. You cannot have your religious viewpoint dictated to others at *government sponsored* events. So, no, you should not be able to place the Ten Commandments inside a courthouse. You can place them in your church. You cannot have Christian prayers said at school functions. You can do that at home or in church. We have a *secular* government that cannot and should not take any stance on religious questions whatsoever. The government represents *everyone* whether they are religious or not and should keep strict neutrality in regards to anything religious. And that even includes the central question of whether deities exist.
Here we go again with the victim card rhetoric. "Woe is me...those bullying Christians refuse to acknowledge my special atheist sensitivities and needs." Sniff...snort. The motto IN GOD WE TRUST placed on United States currency by the government itself renders your argument about the separation of church and state a moot point. If you can accept a Catholic nun in a habit, or a Muslim in Islamic religious apparel walking on your secular streets, you can accept a crèche in front of a courthouse for a brief time during the Christmas season.

What would an atheist know of the nature of atoms when he believes scientific myths? Something comes from nothing, there are no absolutes, natural selection is a creative process not a selective one, scientific hypotheses are physical laws in the making, the scientific method is a universal principle and can answer all questions, evidence always results in truth, scientists are always objective, peer review keeps scientists honest etc. etc.

If atheist forums prove anything, it's that atheists are generally intolerant quarrelsome, socially challenged people, who are unable to present a coherent definition of their beliefs, let alone, an intelligent reason why they choose to deny God.

Atheists share a common goal to let everyone know how persecuted they are. How Christians shove their beliefs down their throats. Paradoxically, these pseudo geniuses are oblivious to the fact that since they label themselves atheists, no religion has been forced upon them. They are excercising their constitutional right (freedom of religion) not to practice any faith at all. Hello, is anybody in there?

So you would be cool with Christian children being told they had to pray to Allah on a prayer rug in class? How about they would have to participate in a pagan ritual to the moon god?

It's not what you say in one sentence , it's that you keep saying sentences. AKA, no matter how much evidence that comes up that refutes what you believe. You will fabricate yet another reason why you should believe. The walls to your castle all propped up ,
to stop them from caving in on itself.

I did not call you a dumbass! I called the stupid people who did not believe you, a dembass!

We all know that a body will decompose overnight in the desert, right?

And we all know that God sent Mana to Moses and the former slaves, so really, they never aged! No one died on the 40 year journey! And since God gave them Mana and water, they had no pottery!

You see; I believe you! There is no evidence, because there was none to leave!
