No one ever died along the way? They never came across anyone who mentioned these millions of wandering people? They also carried around 40 years of accumulated trash with them? Seriously?
Many families and cultures today prefer to bury their dead together in their own country or state. For example my family has a burial ground in East Texas. Although I live in Illinois I will be buried with my family.

The Israelites were no different. They wanted to bury their dead in their own homeland. After one dies in the desert their bones can be easily transported.

Just what kind of accumulated trash would you expect to see? They lived in tents so there are no building remains. They didnít have automobiles so there were no old tires. They walked into the wilderness and walked out. Footprints have a two day life span in the desert.

Why would a non living object evolve? You obviously don't know what evolution is. Regardless evolution has nothing to do with believing in your retarded god.

Yeah dumbasses. Don't you know that when a person dies in the desert, it's like, "poof!" and all the skin and muscles turn to dust! Then the bones shrink down to pocket size! Duh! Gwad are you people stupid!

When you study the core beliefs of secular humanism of moral relativity, the end justifies the means, and total lack of eternal justice. Then you begin to understand their definition of right and wrong, morals, and empathy. They are meaningless, because they believe in nothingness, based upon a dust to dust finite universe and life exists only because of instinctive behavior of avoidance of pain in a quest to survive. But ultimately, nothing really matters.

Talking to an atheist about right and wrong or evil vs. righteousness, you will find that they have no real comprehension or understanding, they only try to look for every direction and argument to make those traits meaningless.

Secular morality is by far superior to biblical morality. It was secular morality that did away with slavery, incest and child molesting all of these were common place in biblical morality.

Exactly. And yet science would have you believe that dead matter produces life, that something from nothing is a valid idea.

You atheists are a pathetic lot. Easily reduced to a quivering heap of incoherent sniveling over the mere mention of God. Chronic bellyachers, filing lawsuits under the guise of impinged civil liberties because of your delicate feelings. "Oh, but judge, but judge, I saw a cross and it filled me with fear and loathing." "The words ĎIn God we Trustí on american currency hurts my feelings." "I just canít sleep knowing there is a manger scene at the courthouse." "The sight of the Ten Commandments makes me wet my pants." "I have to pay for the cost of therapy due to recurring nightmares about a monster God trying to get me."

We hear your rage against religion and see it for what it is, a product of your own wild imagination and insecurities.

Science does not invoke belief. It does however give explanation where none exist.

You also attribute laws made to to force adherence to the constitution, to science. this is not so either, scientist's do not deal with the law of the land, but in fact deal with natural laws that are in nature above any human law to intervene.
The notion is as silly as King Midas marching to the sea,

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.
