Christians Say the Darnedest Things: Despite No Evidence for the Existence of Moses, He Wrote the First Five Books of the Bible


This is always the thought of the unbeliever. They think that secular records were the inspiration for the biblical writers even though that cannot possibly be true. There is no record of Moses coming in contact with anyone from the Greek region or that he had even heard the story.

This contrary claim just comes from the minds of those who seek to make the Bible a human book. They cannot produce one shred of evidence their claim is true, just like the biblical scholars who claim much of the OT was taken from Babylonian myths and written in the 5th to 7th centuries BC.


If God cannot write original material, what does that say about God? A question you can answer for yourselves. One point would be that God is not who he says he is. That would be devastating to Christians everywhere.

But since God is who he says he is, then it is a fact that Hesiod copied from the Bible. Unbelievers love to twist history to fit what they want it to be instead of accepting it as it was. Believing what God wrote is a part of faith and that pleases God.

    There is no proof Moses wrote the first 5 chapters of the Bible. There is no proof Moses could write (probably Egyptian). There is no proof of Moses. Seems to me, Dr. Tee is telling God what to think, rather than listening. But then, Tee doesn’t listen to anyone.

    Right, because there is absolutely no evidence, whatsoever, anywhere, in any form, that Greece would have any contact or trade or communication with Egypt around 1300 BCE when Moses was alive. So, by extension, there is no way someone educated in an Egyptian royal household and being treated as a son would have any influence from Greeks in that period or learned anything about them.

    I don’t even want to get involved with all the presuppositions and assumptions that Thiessen makes here. Shaking my head is the extent of effort I choose to put into this…..

    What was that about a clock that doesn’t work being right twice a day?

    Dr T starts from the premise he personally knows God’s mind (so take his word). That may be the most preposterous and typically authoritarian idea proposed by evangelical leaders. It reminds me of an orange faced politician who claims only he knows things, only he can do things, and only he can fix things. Claims of omniscience and omnipotence characterize authoritarians. It’s what their susceptible followers seek in a leader, IE: a God like figure to defer to about all things. It appeals to a susceptible, rigid, incorrigible, base. Once I realized that I stopped trying to reach the zombies in my life with appeals to evidence and reason. It’s a hopelessly idealistic urge to want to correct them and the the most practical tactic is avoid political subjects and try to maintain civility to the extent their fanaticism allows. Anything else and you end up estranged. The way in to the zombie brain is not through reason.
