Re: \how soon we forget

when the 2 brothers battled it out --it was the start of the jewish and muslim nations  or at least that is what the muslimes say--all scholars seem to agree

Re: \how soon we forget

All of the descendants of Cain from The Garden up until the 7th century are honarary Muslims then, huh?

 

That should square it up.  Jesus was born a Jew, which I doubt anyone would disagreee with,  but Muhammed was born a Muslim, even though Islam didn't exist until it was formed after his death.

 

OK

Re: Global climate change

There are many examples of rapid climate change across geologic time. There was a portion of Africa that went through a series of changes from a wet lakeland environment to a desert on a cycle of something like 10000 years iirc.

Re: bet GOD played a role

an excerpt:

 

In each of the Egyptian manuscripts Dayan discussed, the same familiar characters are mentioned: Moses (“an Egyptian name”), Pharoah, the Red Sea/Sea of Reeds (“Yam Suf” in Hebrew), Hebrews, Israelites and the presence of slaves in Egypt.

In one manuscript, known as the Ipuwer papyrus, there is an eerie description of chaos in Egypt: “Plague is throughout the land,” Dayan’s translation reads, “blood is everywhere — the river is blood ... and the hail smote every herd of the field ... the land is without light and there is a thick darkness throughout the land ... the Lord smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt — from the firstborn of Pharoah that sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the prison. ...”

“Ladies and gentlemen,” Dayan said with dramatic effect, “this is an Egyptian papyrus that is describing the same plagues that we have in our haggadah.” She explained her view that the 10 plagues were not random punishments inflicted by the Jewish God upon Egypt, but a “declaration of war” on the entire Egyptian system. Each plague, she said, corresponds to a different Egyptian god and the element of creation over which they held dominion. This means the plagues were not merely grave misfortunes but the most humiliating insults to the Egyptian people.
