The Omrides were the ancestors of modern day Palestinians.
You came into this with an extreme, quite modern, political view. You are trying to twist the facts to support it.
A historian will say "If tens of thousands of Hebrews were kept as slaves in Egypt, then I would expect to see this evidence". That evidence doesn't exist. Then they say "if tens of thousands of people are wandering 40 years in the Sinai peninsula I would expect to see this evidence". These historians have experience, they know what to look for when studying migrant populations. They see nothing.
It is simple logic Oralloy.
1. The modern day Palestinians and the modern day Israeli have the same ancestors (you have already agreed with this).
2. The Omride kingdom consisted of the people living in much of the territory of what is modern day Israel... even though this was not a Jewish kingdom. They were polytheists... even the Bible says they worshiped Baal.
3. If the Jews and the Palestinians had the same ancestors, and Jews have an ancestral claim to the land... then so do the Palestinians.
That third step is your problem.
Once the facts hit up against one of your extreme (and often absurd) political opinions, you abandon the facts.
Or at least, I have accepted it for a very long time, ever since you posted that DNA study some 15 years ago.
The question is whether God is an asshole. This is different from the question of whether he exists or not.
If God is really dividing people up into groups and telling one to fight and kill another, he is not a good God. That is the behavior of a tyrant.
I am pleasantly surprised that your experience includes this question. It only occurs to those who have lost all reasons to doubt his existence.
Your logic here is demonstrably incorrect.
The only definition of "death" that makes any sense to me is the biological one.
If you are going to use a term like "death" in a way that isn't the normal scientific meaning... you are going to have to define it.
It illustrates what I see as the 'basic divide' between two world views.
I don't think the 'Chosen People' has anything to do with genetics or ancestry. I suppose eventually there might be a genetic diversion but that would be incidental, depending on your starting assumptions.
Either there was a God who could choose or there wasn't.
I would hope God would not make his choices solely based on ancestry and genetics. I think Adolf did it that way.
I felt her get cold and I saw her stop breathing. She was dead. Maybe the instant her brain stopped working some ethereal being with her essence sprung into existance.
I'm just interested in knowing what really happened back then.
