Exodus

Turning Fable into History

Passover

The Fairy Tale Becomes Truth

Notice how many times "God" gave instructions to do the Passover.  This is the same "God" that got the geography and history wrong!

Exodus 12:25-27
When you enter the land which the Lord will give you, as He has promised, you shall observe this rite. And when your children say to you, ‘What does this rite mean to you?’ you shall say, ‘It is a Passover sacrifice to the Lord who passed over the houses of the sons of Israel in Egypt when He smote the Egyptians, but spared our homes.’” And the people bowed low and worshiped.

God Loves Animal Sacrifice

God Loves Animal Sacrifice

God Loves the Smell of Animal Sacrifice???

In accepting this claim, we are also to believe all the mind-numbing and absurd commandments, ordinances and instructions in the Bible on how to behave and prepare the tabernacle and other priestly accoutrements and rituals, including page after page concerning bloody sacrifices of various animals.

The Ark of the Covenant

The Ark of the Covenant

Exodus 25 discusses the Ark of the Covenant, including detailed instructions on how to build this gilded and jewel-encrusted box designed to carry around godly energy and objects such as the tablets with the 10 commandments.

Housed in the tent/tabernacle, the ark was used to lead the Israelites in their conquest of the Promised Land, according to the Bible. The ark was utilized also to fell Jericho, carried around the city for six days before horns were blown on the seventh, to take down the walls.

Giants in the Promised Land

33 We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.”       Numbers 13:33

The Bible contends the Israelites were terrified of “Nephilim” (sg.  נפיל nĕphiyl) or giants occupying the Promised Land, suggested as one reason the chosen sojourned for so long in the Sinai.  These Nephilim are mentioned also in Genesis as the offspring of the “sons of God” (bene Elohim) and “daughters of men.”

Ten Commandments FABLE

Kill All Those Cow Worshipers

At Exodus 20–32 appears the story of Moses and the Ten Commandments or Decalogue, in which the prophet, while in the wilderness after fleeing Egypt, is claimed to receive a unique, divine revelation endorsing the notion of the Israelites as Yahweh’s “chosen people.”

Exodus Encampment Space Required!

Bible literalists claim that purported ancient encampments along the supposed Exodus route, now visible using technology such as Google Earth, prove the biblical story to be true. Firstly, if these were the biblical sites, they would need to be enormous. Regarding the massive encampments of the Israelites and their animals, the latter of which is estimated to be at least the same as the number of Israelites, over 2 million,252 Wheless remarks:

Geography But NO Archaeology

And the geography is wrong.

Although the Exodus story appears to demonstrate a “good knowledge of the geography and natural conditions of the eastern Delta, the Sinai peninsula, the Negev and Transjordan,” archaeologists “cannot provide any clues to the Exodus as any such event that in fact happened.”

1  Archaeologists cannot identify the important mountain "Mount Sinai." 

2  They cannot identify many other place-names in the story.  Never were any remains from this period found anywhere in the Sinai region.
