ARCHEOLOGY PROVES THAT THE THINGS
IN THE BIBLE NEVER HAPPENED
THE UNIVERSITY OF TEL AVIV
TEL AVIV ISRAEL
ARCHAEOLOGIST TRIES TO RIP OUT JEWISH HISTORY'S BIBLICAL ROOTS
By Matthew Kalman USA TODAY
Quote from Professor Ze'ev Herzog of Tel Aviv University
NOTE: Professor Herzogs quotes---Mine in gray
"The many Egyptian documents known to us do not make any reference to the sojourn of the Children of Israel in Egypt or the events of Exodus.
This is coming from a University right in the middle of Israel, and they say that the Egyptian documents dating back ages make no mention of the exodus.
Generations of scholars tried to locate Mount Sinai and the stations of the tribes of Israel in the desert. Despite all this diligent research, not one site was identified that could correspond to the Biblical picture.
Generations of scholars have not been able to find one site identified in the Bible.
An Israeli archeologist is drawing fire for claiming that the biblical history of the Jewish people is probably fiction.
Consider the courage this archeologist has for saying the truth, right in the middle of Israel.
In an article in Ha'aretz newspaper, Ze'ev Herzog a professor at Tel Aviv University argued that the Exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt probably never happened, the Ten Commandments were not given on Mt Sinai and Joshua never conquered the land of Israel.
So there are three big Biblical stories that you have read about all your life, that a university in Israel says never happened.
Herzog says there is no evidence that Joshua led the children of Israel into the Holy Land or brought down the walls of Jericho.
Repeated excavations by various expeditions have only yielded disappointments he says.
During the period when the conquest would have taken place, there were no cities there and of course no walls to bring down.
Joshua could not have knocked down the walls of Jericho because there was no Jericho there at the time, and no walls.
Herzog has been criticized by religious leaders and is surprised at the criticism.
I don't think it is right to guess at motives based on the results of scientific inquiry he says. Archaeology has always been used in this society and used to point in one direction, (to prove the Bible), now I'm suggesting that perhaps it should be used to point in another direction.
What professor Herzog says here is that archeology can also be used to prove that the things in the Bible never happened.
They are symbolic, just as the Bible says.
Atheists and disbeliever's come onto the religious thread's but mostly the christian one's and sit there and make grandiose statement founding in biased and biggoted opinions that are self serving, then they star one another.
We know you are there, we know you do not want to believe as it scares the hell out of you that you might one day have to answer for the wrong's you have done and feel free thinking there is no god but in the word's of christ "Those who say there is no god are foolish", and that is from the very being who warned us to call no man a fool.
What kick do the get out of trying to drag people out of there faith, to push them into a bleak world where they will feel no one can help them not even themselves and are less inclined to help one another.
Where there is an alter there you will find civilization, So what kind of civilization would atheists build, the pyramid's were constructed with primitive tool's by people who whole heartedly believed in something, they may not have been correct but at least they were not souless machines with empty heart's and driven by greed, lust and vindictive hatred of they who do believe.
By the way there are two school's of archeaology, one that is trying to disprove and one that is trying to prove, the bible is a matter of faith but what of Ron wyatte and his solomon era pillar's on both sides of the red sea, the one of the egyptian side though eroded had four readable inscriptionsi in pheonician.
Oh that is right he was a religious guy so his opinion did not count www.arkdiscovery.com...
You know he is far from alone, but a hard core of atheists have taken over this profession over time and there secular view's are totally crap, they teach there own personal opinion's as though they were actual fact, biased and hypocritical abuse of position.
And also remember the like's of herzog have a vested interest in seeing a religon that they find offencive and consider blasphemous disproven so will even make up or interpret proof with that biased intention.
I actually think Wyatt's mount sinai is the real one but have a look at Har Karkoum and remember the tribe's of Israel wandered for decade's as god toughened them us and made a tainted generation pass away.
You really have no idea how much proof there really IS for the bible.
