If it's a private conversation, then use the PMs.Look there is no point in engaging with you, you took it upon yourself to interject into
someone else’s convo. (Yes I know it’s a public forum)
Yeah. I've written about Mitchondrial Eve on these forums a few times.ever hear of Mitochondrial Eve
Very flimsy evidence and a great deal of leaps of faith to argue that this is evidence for the Exodus.on the Exodus, Titus Kennedy has done a lot of work on this. https://afr.net/podcasts/i-don-t-ha...s-with-dr-stephen-meyer-and-dr-titus-kennedy/
For example the Ipuwer Papyrus that they mention has often been put forward in popular literature as confirmation of the biblical account of the Exodus, most notably because of its statement that "the river is blood" and its frequent references to servants running away. This assertion has not gained acceptance among scholars. There are disparities between Ipuwer and the narrative in the Book of Exodus, such as that the papyrus describes the Asiatics as arriving in Egypt rather than leaving. The papyrus' statement that the "river is blood" phrase may refer to the red sediment colouring the Nile during disastrous floods, or simply be a poetic image of turmoil.
Mainstream scholarship no longer accepts the biblical Exodus account as history for a number of reasons. Most scholars agree that the Exodus stories were written centuries after the apparent setting of the stories. The Book of Numbers states for example that the number of Israelites in the desert during the wandering were 603,550, including 22,273 first-borns, which modern estimates put at 2.5-3 million total Israelites, a clearly fanciful number that could never have been supported by the Sinai Desert. While ancient Egyptian texts from the New Kingdom mention "Asiatics" living in Egypt as slaves and workers, these people cannot be securely connected to the Israelites, and no contemporary Egyptian text mentions a large-scale exodus of slaves like that described in the Bible.
Renowed archaeologists Israel Finkelstein and Neil Asher Silberman say that archaeology has not found any evidence for even a small band of wandering Israelites living in the Sinai: "The conclusion – that Exodus did not happen at the time and in the manner described in the Bible – seems irrefutable [...] repeated excavations and surveys throughout the entire area have not provided even the slightest evidence." Instead, modern archaeology suggests continuity between Canaanite and Israelite settlement, indicating a primarily Canaanite origin for Israel, with no suggestion that a group of foreigners from Egypt comprised early Israel.
"The whole subject of the Exodus is embarrassing to archaeologists. The Exodus is so fundamental to us and our Jewish sources that it is embarrassing that there is no evidence outside of the Bible to support it."

So there was no global flood.on the global flood it need not be global…that view is based on the use of language from 3,500 yrs ago
Yahweh is the deity of Judaism and both Christianity and Islam worship the same god. That is very clear.Islam worships Yahweh, if you actually believe this it shows you have very little understanding of either Christianity or Islam.
Yahweh is the deity of Judaism and both Christianity and Islam are followers of the same god. Jesus was Jewish. So was Paul. That is very clear.They are are polar opposites, Islam is completely antichrist in nature, it denies the basic tenets of Christianity.
