Moses Is Fictitious

How do we know Moses never actually existed? There are three reasons:

  1. Moses allegedly lead one million people for forty years through the Sinai Desert eating nothing but mysterious manna. Archaeologists for over a century have searched for signs of that trek. They found nothing, not even so much as a shard of pottery. Think how much garbage a city of a million produces over 40 years. It is utterly impossible for there to be absolutely no trace of them. The traces are not buried in sand dunes. It is the Sahara desert that has the shifting dunes, not the Sinai.
  2. Moses was allegedly taken into the Egyptian royal family. The Egyptians kept meticulous stone records of the activities of the royal family including architects, priests etc. Moses is never mentioned.
  3. The Israelites were allegedly taken into slavery in Egypt. Yet there is no record of this. Pharaohs bragged about such things and recorded even minor conquests in stone. Moses was the alleged leader of the Israelites. If there were no Israelites in Egypt, there could not very well have been a leader either.

If there were no Moses, there was no Red Sea parting; there was no Ten Commandments on tablets; there was no burning bush; there was no reed basket in the river; there was no golden calf. Moses was the alleged author of the first five books of the bible. It must have been someone else. This also means that a good hunk of the bible must be fiction. That blows the claim of inerrancy of the entire bible out the water, doesn’t it?

Abused Children

Christians, like abused children, tell themselves lies about their parents. They wish their parents were kind and caring, so they pretend they are. If Christians read the bible cover to cover, they discover Jehovah commits torture and genocide. He is capricious, merciless and sadistic, but Christians pretend Jehovah is infinitely merciful and kind, even though he ignores every one of their desperate prayers, despite his promises to answer them. Further, when they read the bible cover to cover, they discover it is full of thousands of contradictions. Clearly the bible is not the work of a single author, much less god, but they pretend not to notice. Lying to yourself is the core feature of Christianity.
