Actually I have already seen this before and does not say anything.
Actually it says a lot, but nothing you want to read, or let into your mind. You could not have possibly read all of those links, now could you?

I didn't know that being religious made me exempt from answering questions. Do you realize how ignorant you make yourself sound?


Come on sanspeur. You're an intelligent man. Would you start with wikipedia to do some serious research?
Yes I would, and do....You did notice the reference links on the bottom of the page didn't you? That is where the gems are.

I have already been to this site over a month or two ago. I'm not into reading about your arguement, but what you have to say on your facts.

It's easy to post a link.

To begin with Moses probably was not involved it writing any part of the bible. The five books of Pentateuch are ascribed to Moses. But by the eighteenth century, many European scholars noticed problems with that assumption. Not only does Deuteronomy end with an account of Moses' death, but the entire Pentateuch shows anomalies of style that are hard to explain if only one author is involved. By the nineteenth century, most scholars agreed that the Pentateuch consisted of four sources woven together. They were combined together to form our Pentateuch sometime in the sixth century BCE.
In my opinion the bible was cobbled together by many different people who ascribed the writings arbitrarily to who ever they decided to.

By saying Moses is probably not the author or part of the bible is not showing facts and European scholars have yet to say that they have found facts to back up their claim.

Just because the Penateuch is a hard style to explain that does not mean that one author is involved.

You worded it just right, your opinion. Your opinion has nothing to do with disproving the bible, or even saying that Moses is not the author of a book.

Is this your evidence, you said that you had research, but all you provided was a site and your opinion.

If it was that easy, you wouldn't just provide a site and opinion and call that research.

Would you show me the conclusive research that proves Moses was the author to the 1st five books of the Bible?
