The Bible then was not written when it was thought, it was written 4 centureis before. This I think is an interesting find.

So the ideas about Bibile were there even during the 10 Century BC. My question here is that there are conspiracy theories that scriptures like Bible are false and then if they have been there previously than what we believe, then should we cling to the Bible? And how does it affect us?


Scientists have discovered the earliest known Hebrew writing — an inscription dating from the 10th century B.C., during the period of King David's reign.

The breakthrough could mean that portions of the Bible were written centuries earlier than previously thought. (The Bible's Old Testament is thought to have been first written down in an ancient form of Hebrew.)

Until now, many scholars have held that the Hebrew Bible originated in the 6th century B.C., because Hebrew writing was thought to stretch back no further. But the newly deciphered Hebrew text is about four centuries older, scientists announced this month.

"It indicates that the Kingdom of Israel already existed in the 10th century BCE and that at least some of the biblical texts were written hundreds of years before the dates presented in current research,"

Many Jewish and Christian Bible scholars already knew this...
...but secular historians assumed sections containing prophecy must necessarily have been written after the fulfillment of events described...
...so dates were adjusted to fit their world view.

Moses wrote the Torah during the Exodus from Egypt...
...and it was finished by scribes after his death...
...the earliest date for the Exodus is held to be about 1600 BCE...
...and the latest date about 1200-1250 BCE.

Some scholars hold that The Book of Job was the first manuscript contained in the modern western canon to written...
...therefore preceeding the Exodus dates.

To me the Bible and Quran are nothing more then stories. Stories of older pagan religions that influenced their stories. You'll be surprised how many similarities of the Old Testament (Noah, Moses, Story of Creation) from ancient religions of Babylon. www.usbible.com... Here's a more in depth skeptic view of Jewish, Christian and Muslim bible stories. You'll be surprised how Creation and Evolution go hand and hand!
