Christians Say the Darnedest Things: History is Subservient to the Biblical Record Says Dr. David Tee

By Dr. David Tee, world-class Egyptologist, archaeologist, biologist, cosmologist, and Bible scholar, TheologyArcheology: A Site for the Glory of God, A Word About Egyptian Chronology, May 30, 2024

This is a monumental task. Revision of all the chronologies would change history and support the validity of the Biblical record. As one scholar said . . . no one wants to prove the Exodus true because that would mean they would have to deal with the reality that the Bible is true (paraphrased from memory).

That experience would mean that scholars would have to change their lives, conclusions, academic papers, and books as well as seriously consider accepting Christ as their Savior [the former bears no connection with the latter].

Not many scholars are willing to do that. Here is the realization that God taught us [me] as we [I] were watching those videos [Patterns of Evidence (POE)]. The Egyptian Chronology is not inspired nor is it infallible.

Christian scholars and archaeologists cannot link the Biblical chronology to the Egyptian one and make it subservient to the latter. In fact, all of the scholars and the items they use to determine ancient timelines are not inspired or infallible. There are no absolute dates or events that cannot be changed.

Only the Bible and its timeline cannot be changed because it is inspired and infallible. [Yet, it has been edited, changed, and corrected thousands of times.] The Biblical chronology is the one that influences all others, not the Egyptian one. [in other words, when facts, evidence, or probabilities conflict with the Bible, the B-i-b-l-e is ALWAYS right.]

Those Christians who do not make this change will have trouble harmonizing ancient events with the biblical record and they will also have trouble with their faith. They are not getting to the truth but provide a helping hand in hiding it.

This is crucial for all Christian scholars, historians, and archaeologists, as well as regular Christians. Getting to the truth means not following the secular world and not letting their information damage the Bible. [Actually, getting to the truth means following the evidence wherever it leads, even if doing so uproots things we previously believed. I want to believe as many true things as possible. Unfortunately, Thiessen only wants to believe things that affirm, reinforce, and bolster his Fundamentalist beliefs. Everything else is a Satanic lie from the pit of Hell.]

    Oh, brother. “I have decided that this one narrative is true so I will demonize all historical evidence and scholarly study and proclaim it to be wrong because Bible. But I am a real scientist, and all the others who don’t agree with me are influenced by invisible demons that cannot be empirically studied because Bible.”

      History? You don’t need no stinking history, in fact there is no such thing as history because Bible. There’s words to describe made up reality and in his case the word is delusion. This guy is certifiable. He can reasonably be declared a danger to himself or others and mandatory medication seems in order.

    Bruce:
    In the the last paragraph you mention someone named “Thiessen” that is not mentioned elsewhere in the article. Could please clarify who this person is? Thanks

      Derek Thiessen is an Evangelical preacher who lives in the Philippines. He uses a fake name, Dr. David Tee. Not a good person, even worse Christian. He has written over 100 posts about me. crazy stuff.

    We all know about Galileo. But who, aside from historians of the Catholic Church, remembers Pope Urban VIII?

    Said Pope didn’t exactly say the Bible is right: He averred that heliocentrism, which Galileo proved, was “heresy “ that went against Catholic dogma (i.e., how the Church digested and regurgitated the Bible they admonished their flock not to read). For that, Galileo spent the rest of his life under house arrest.

    NASA did plenty wrong. (Read what Carl Sagan, who worked with them, and Richard Feynman said.) But at least the space agency didn’t try to use Catholic theology or the Bible as their guide for sending people into space!

    If I was not disabled, I might be rolling on the floor laughing. Tools that archaeologists use to establish timelines are well-tested, and the scientists themselves admit when conclusions are tentative. The Bible is a set of CLAIMS. Scientists use EVIDENCE. I’m on the side of the evidence.
