Your the one in the wrong. Those Discovery Channel type shows or whatever you got your source from are just exaggerating something insignificant to catch audience. If you talk to a historian who specifies into Holy Scriptures, he can tell you which texts are historically accurate and the correct way to interpret them. Besides don't you think that if these were solid proof there would be some media outbreak or something?
Oh for crying out loud. How many falsities and guesses are you willing to construct in order to maintain your state of ignorant bliss.
These are real studies by real historians. As for the study into the falsity of Exodus. That was carried out by Israeli archaeologists themselves. Men with all the motivation in the world to find evidence of their pact with God, and their right to the holy land. Yet they had to come back empty handed and admit that it was simply a falsity. I could go into more detail if you want, and name them individually.
As for Jesus There is no contemporary historical record of any kind of Jesus!! No written Roman, Greek or Jewish sources from this time (apart from the gospels) know of any historical Jesus or Christ. The name "Christ" is mentioned in some later texts (Tacitus, Suetonius Pliny d.y.) but then merely as the name of the idol of the Christians' worship . We don't even know who the writers of the Gospels were, and don't have the original manuscripts themselves either. We just have later copies of copies of copies of copies … of copies of the assumed lost originals. And with each copy the copyist usually felt free to alter details or rewrite whole parts of the manuscript. (We usually don't trust dubious anonymous sources as evidence for anything, do we?)
Something which brings these accounts into greater disrepute, is that when other gospels, such as that of Judas are found, the copies of which are older thant those we possess of the other four. Christians reject them as being false, because they contradict what has been said to be true for so long. All the divine aspects of the Jesus figure are "stolen" from earlier similar dying and resurrected godmen, such as Dionysos, Osiris, Hercules, Attis, Mithra, Horus, Zarathustra and others. Actually there are few (if any) things about Jesus that are original at all. Jesus is just the Jewish version of this popular mythic Saviour- character in the Mystery-religions of Antiquity. Even the "birthday" of Jesus is of course unknown, not even the year of his miraculous birth is known. The church just stole the already popular date of the 25th December, which in Antiquity was an immensely popular celebration of the birth of the sungod Mithra, - "the light of the world".
It's such an obvious fabrication, that it is laughable you try and defend it so. Although i notice that you cannot defend it with sources or real world studies. Merely assumptions and your own guesses.
