Religion just doesn't make sense once these free-thinking champions
of reason point out the harsh facts. Atheist, agnostic, secularist,
free-thinker, doubter, non-believer - no matter how you label it,
these guys make some awesome points on the inconsistencies of
religion and theism.
1. Thousands of species needed on Noah's Ark.
Known land animal species =
Insects: 1-30 million+ species
Arachnids: 75,500 species
Reptiles: 7,984 species
Amphibians: 5,400 species
Birds: 9,000-10,000 species
Mammals: 4,475-5,000 species
And that doesn't include all the dinosaurs
that had to have been on the Ark as well.
2. Israelites weren't in the Sinai Peninsula for 40 years. They were
in Arabia. Artifacts are found there.
The Israelites were never in Egypt,
or the Sinai, or Saudi Arabia.
Archeology is Demolishing the History of the Bible
Israel Finkelstein, chairman of the Archaeology
Department at Tel Aviv University, with archaeology
historian Neil Asher Silberman, has just published
a book called "The Bible Unearthed: Archaeology's
New Vision of Ancient Israel and the Origin of Its
"The Israelites were never in Egypt, did not wander
in the desert, did not conquer the land [of Canaan]
in a military campaign and did not pass it on to
the twelve tribes of Israel. Perhaps even harder to
swallow is the fact that the united kingdom of David
and Solomon, described in the Bible as a regional
power, was at most a small tribal kingdom."
The only thing that Israel Finkelstein brings to the table is that he's new.
A new view, relatively speaking. There are some very good books written
that show the evidence for Israel in Egypt.
