As I have challenged before, how about the Sennacherib campaign against Judah?


You have used one example in the past. Whether its historically accurate or not, I don't know. What about the rest of the bible? Any evidence for that?

It's quite a simple point really, you say that there is no evidence for anything in the bible being historically accurate, but there is evidence from Ninevah that corroborates Isaiah and Chronicles. So your statement is inaccurate

Okey doke, then. I admit my original statement was inaccurate.

"There is little evidence of anything being historically accurate"

Is that better?

I would say that there is evidence for some of it being historically accurate. But now we are discussing the extent to which the bible is backed up by archeological evidence which is much more civilized

Pages 290, 291 of The Bible Unearthed say that the bible account was wrong.

The bible does have some real places, real people and real events but often distorts them completely so they bare little resemblance to what really happened.

I don't have the book to hand, so in what respects does the book say the account in the bible is wrong and on what evidence?

Unfortunately I can't cut and paste this and typing up a few pages is out too. It tells us that the biblical account of Josiah's death in battle was probably a fiction. Possibly he was summoned by Necho who decided to execute him.

The truth is Silver you only know what others have told you and what you have read from books. You have no evidence and no proof. It is in all essence what you chose to believe.
Isn't that the same everywhere today?
