Judas of the Galilean also known as Judas of the Sicari, that terrorist leader who was captured with the help of Saulus (your St Paul) and crucified for his crimes had an empty tomb because his terrorist buddies had spirited him away. Yes the Romans existed, the details of his trial and crucifixion are evidenced in the Roman archives. There is no evidence for the crucifixion of anyone names Jesus, no tax records either although there are tax records for his claimed mother and his claimed brother. The mother and brother of the terrorist Judas.<quoted text>
Jesus had an empty tomb like it has said in the bible, with his clothes folded neatly. The romans existed, the christians being persecuted was mentioned.
"At the turn of the century, skeptics viewed the Bible as myth rather than real world history . For example, the Bible makes over 40 references to the great Hittite Empire.."
The hittites actually existed just like in the bible.
The precursors of the christian movement were lead by John the Baptiser, records are available in the Roman archives and the writings of Saulus (your St Paul). After Saulus was spirited away by Rome (for his protection from the fourth philosophy - Judass group) his small band of followers joined with Johns larger band.
Only later did they become known as christians when the name Jesus was coined as the Hebrew records were translated into Greek so avoid confusion with name Judas Iscariot
Yes a lot of places and people mentioned in the babble actually existed, some reality often helps a good myth. That does not mean the story lines are accurate.
Creation is incorrect, the earth is proven to be billions of years older than the babble claims, factual evidence outweighs a bronze age guess every time.
Adam and Eve is incorrect. Research into mitochondrial DNA proves female progenitor of the human race existed over 75000 years before the male progenetor. So was Adam into necrophilia big time or did bronze age man not know the facts? I realise this is confusing for you but it simply means that of several strains of paternal DNA have died out.
How about the great flood? The arguments against it are numerous, I will only offer a few. Even today with modern technology and genetic manipulation of tree fibres it is impossible (IMPOSSIBLE) to construct a vessel of the dimensions specified from wood. Even the acclaimed ark that birthed in London during the Olympics had to use a steel frame. How did over 8 million species (more than 16 million animals) fit. More than because remember some went in by 7s and some in pairs? Where were the blue whales stored? Who searched the then unknown continents for animals? Who did the feeding? Where was the food stored for almost a year without refrigeration? Some of those species were carnivores so you are saying that less came out then went in? Who did the mucking out?
Then of course we are all supposed to have sprung up from the survivors, was it 8 people? All related? So you are saying we are all the result of inbreeding? Honey, you may be the result of incest but I can be pretty sure that I am not. Anyway, see the Adam and Eve objections.
OK, how about Sodom and Gomorrah? Where was the nova? Fusion is required to create one element from another. The creation of sodium from carbon needs the explosion of a second generation star.
Them there bronze age guys didnt know to much about facts did they?
The evidence of the Hittite empire does not confirm the babble, it confirms the Hittites existed, this we already knew, there are engraving in Egypt commemorating the battle of Kadesh dating from more than 3200 years ago and Egyptian records catalogue dealing with the Hittites long before this.
