So are you claiming that the guys who penned the Bible were objective Historians??
Wanna buy a bridge?
The Bible was a "horse designed by a committee"
Simple as that.
Try this with a bible
The Bible was completed about two thousand years ago. Since then, countless other books have come and gone. But not the Bible. To this date it continues to be the most widely published and distributed of any and all books in some 2,300 languages. Why might this be?
Only a small percentage of people see the underlying logic in the bible. You don't currently belong to that group.
Because it tells people what they want to hear, e.g. they won't really die, most of their enemies will be punished, etc. Some people will choose the comforting, easy answer over a complex, difficult, somewhat unpleasant truth
I appreciated how Larry McMurtry always stuck in some historical characters into the plots of his stories. I wonder whether or not the bible was similarly penned.?
. . . the Bible has proven itself to be historically accurate not in just some cases, but incredibly in all cases where it names people, places and events.
I think youre , once again, confusing belief and fact.
PS, nice try in the conflation department.
Your belief that you even posed any evidence lets us view your delusion at a closer level.
I said it was "your belief that youve posted (evidence) an THAT allows me to view delusional behavior
"I have not posed/(posted) any evidence...".

How does one manage to figure out what the truth is in this matter?
