As to the idea that the Hebrews were never in Egypt - I researched that a number of years ago and it is quite interesting - I wouldn't dismiss it out
of hand but the jury is still out on that ...whether their captivity was in Egypt or Babylon does not affect my faith in Christ -
The jury is still out ? Whose jury exactly the roman catholic jury ?
Dude, the were never 2 million Hebrews enslaved in Egypt as according to the claims made in your bible which you accept as truth, so obviously as this
event did not occur your bibles are erroneous.
The exodus is probably one of the most important events in your bibles, this is where your god Yahweh presents to you the way you should live your
life, if you choose not to live as he/it commanded the you will suffer the penalty that he/it deems fitting the crime.
We no know some thousands of years later, that this event did not actually occur, but you counter with yes it did but it must have occurred elsewhere
so it is still true !
This is preposterous logic grasping at straws to convince yourself that your many years of "study" of what you wanted to believe ie the bibles is
not in error.
Your awkward statement -"whether their captivity was in Egypt or Babylon does not affect my faith in Christ" implies that regardless of factual
error whether in whole or partially, within the bibles. You will accept what they have to say as fact and ignore lack of evidence unless it presents
itself in a manner that would fit in with what you wish to believe,
This kind of mental gymnastics is quite typical of the christian delusion, and no doubt the more biblical problems one presents to you the more you
will bury your head in the sand and pretend it will all go away.
Quite honestly I pity you in that you are far too brainwashed or egocentric to ever consider that you could in any way be in error.
Fortunately for the rest of the reasoning world, your superstitious religion is imploding and peoples are being freed from the shackles of this wicked
nonsense which has no basis in reality.
You've come to the table claiming "Proof" -
my proof for the existence of Jesus Christ is Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, and the letters of Paul [Saul of Tarsus]
Not only have you failed to provide proof you have failed to provide any evidence. What you have presented is hearsay and hearsay is only evidence of
itself and not "proof" of anything.
You openly admit that regardless of lack of evidence you will accept hearsay as proof of what you want to believe. If that is what you choose to
believe the fine kick on and I would be the first to defend your right to believe what you wish.
However, please please don't continue to present your "faith" as proof as we know that your faith is based on hearsay unless proven otherwise,
which you claim you have no need to do probably because you are unable to do so.
