Bible errors
Jesus said the end of the world would be in his generation Jesus is talking of signs that will happen before the end of the world to his disciples) (Notice: Jesus probably thought the stars were little lights attached to a solid rotating sky dome like everyone else at that time) (Mat 24:29 NRSV) "Immediately after the suffering of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moonwill not give its light; *the stars will fall from heaven*, and the powers of heaven will be shaken. (Mat 24:30 NRSV) Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see 'the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven' with power and great glory. (Jesus now says to his disciples that their generation will not pass away before theend of the world) (Mat 24:34 NRSV) Truly I tell you, *this generation will not pass away* until all these things have taken place. (Their generation did pass away, but the world didn't end) ------------------------------------------------------------------------Jesus said that believers could handle snakes and drink poison Jesus tells his disciples that those "who believe" can heal, handle snakes,cast demons out, speak in tongues, and drink poison. (Mark 16:17-18 NRSV) And these signs will accompany those who believe: by using my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes in their hands, and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover."------------------------------------------------------------------------Problems with the Exodus story The Exodus story is almost certainly a fabrication or at least extremely exaggerated. The bible says 600,000 men (hopefully accompanied by an equal number of women), children, and a "mixed" crowd supposedly left Egypt. (Exo 12:37-38 NRSV) The Israelites journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about *six hundred thousand men* on foot,besides children. A mixed crowd also went... This is somewhere around 1.5 million people (more than live in the city of Dallas).

It is very unlikely that the Egyptians kept 1.5 million people enslaved, controlled, and fed. It is also very unlikely that hundreds of thousands of Israelites wandered around on foot in a desert region with little food or water for 40 years after they left. There is norecord anywhere of Egypt ever enslaving the Israelites. There is no archaeological evidence to support the Israelites being in Egypt. It is well established that the Egyptians themselves built all their cities and monuments during the off season (farming). There is no record in Egypt of 1.5 million people suddenly getting up and leaving (The Egyptians were meticulous record keepers). There is noarchaeological evidence of anything more than a few scattered encampments in the wilderness where supposedly at least hundreds of thousands wandered and died in the bible. ------------------------------------------------------------------------Jesus' primitive astronomy Jesus was just a mortal man who had no special knowledge of modern cosmology. Here are some verses that indicate this: (Jesus istalking about the end of the world) (Mat 24:29 NRSV) "Immediately after the suffering of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; *the stars will fall* from heaven, and the powers of heaven will be shaken. Jesus is obviously talking about stars (to him little lights) falling from the sky (to him just a few miles up) down to earth. This was entirely feasible topeople of his time as they did not know that the stars are hugh celestial objects like our sun (many, many times larger than the earth) that were unimaginably distant. We know today that stars are suns that are at such distances that light takes dozens to hundreds of thousands of years to travel to us. Even if they could travel instantaneously to earth, they could not "fall to earth" as they are up...
