I am very sorry about your uncle. My mom once gave me the
definition of history as a record of man's inhumanity to man.
Obviously, my post was not a personal attack.
It was intended to be a commentary on the incredible amounts of
garbage that I have been discovering recently in the name of
I hate to say it, but scholarship has it's biases. This is a
generalization, but liberal scholarship doesn't take the Bible
seriously enough. Conservative scholarship, um, is arrogant.
We have people on this list who seem to think that Noah's flood
being millions of years ago is remotely realistic.
My conservative Bible commentaries fudge Bible discrepancies.
I haven't added up all the Bible chronology for the Exodus. The
links that I posted claim that it adds up to more than 480 years
from Solomon's temple.
The Bible claims to be God's word. People on this list claim to
be Christians. If Christians are going to contradict God's Word,
backup needs to be provided.
My tentative backup for claiming an earlier Exodus date is that
the Hebrews excluded 100 or so years in their "480" number, as
was customary at the time. It's not my #1 concern in life. My
far bigger concern (and hence the reason for my post) is that
scholars are often grossly untrustworthy. We have Bibles going
around the world proclaiming a global flood. This is the
scholarship of deceit.
