Maybe they think that bones don't decompose....<quoted text>
You wouldnt happen to know what the average weight of a human skeleton?
My guess its anywhere between 10 to 15 pounds. You do realize after decomposition thats all thats left is hair and bones? Not really a lot of weight to carry by a group of men.
Im 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.
Its incredible the lengths some people will go to shore up their weak and vulnerable ideology. I mean what are you afraid of to admit its 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?
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 all bones become fossilized....
