RE: Rethinking Christianity
Question from RL on 10-20-2012:

I think that there are two points that needs to be mentioned concerning the question asked by "Curious George". To begin with, the Egyptians in the past HAVE altered their own history, e.g. King Tut's father was considered a heretic, and there is evidence that they erased this episode from from their history. Further, according to the bible, when the Hebrews left Egypt, they were nomadic for a number of years before entering the promised land. The fact that history seems to support this is quite consistent with the bible. Are all of the numbers correct in the bible, probably not. However, archeology has not shown that these events did not occur.
