Tens of Thousands of years? Where did you get that information?

Yes I just stated that they were and obviously they adapted to survive in the environment they live in.

I don't put my faith in Christianity and yet I mention it. Did you know that the Hindus, Sumarians, and Mayans have Adam and Eve type stories?

I will highlight three pieces of evidence that I believe supports the historicity of the account found in the Old Testament.
(1) The list of cities in the Transjordan region through which the Israelites passed on their way into the land in Numbers 33:45-50 includes Iyim, Dibon-gad, Abel-shittim, and Jordan. A list of places through which Egyptian armies passed in their military incursions dating from the same general period include these four places in the same order. Ian Wilson in his book The Bible Is History quotes archaeologist Charles Krahmalkov on this point: "The biblical story of the invasion of Transjordan that sets the stage for the conquest of all Palestine is told against a background that is historically accurate. The Israelite invasion route described in Numbers 33:50 was

A degree in Anthropology gave you that information? :) I'm sure you read that somewhere,maybe while getting your degree or at some point in your studies, right? And you put your faith in that, even though there was no one there to prove it as fact. Right? So again....you put your faith in one area and I put my faith in another.

Here are your flat Earth quotes:



Revelation 7:1
1 And after these things I saw four angels standing on FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. (KJV)



"that it might take the earth by the edges and shake the wicked out of it? (From the NIV Bible, Job 38:13)"



"Their measure is longer than the earth and wider than the sea. (From the NIV Bible, Job 11:9)"



Oooooh, and it doesn't move?



"He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved. (From the NIV Bible, Psalm 104:5)

Yes I did know that, but since I am speaking on what I personally believe, since that is what the OP wanted to know, I chose to use the Christian perspective.

Faith is blind. I QUESTION science. I DO NOT take it as fact.



Although it is common knowledge, here are a few articles stating the age of human existence:

No. You are stating a FABLE as fact. The Grimm brothers wrote a book of moral beliefs that are just as factual as your Bible.

1. No on said a portion of the story could not be true. However even if you read that all one archaeologist does is say there can be some credibility to it. However even that is with problems because he is in the minority of opinions even with that.



2 and 3 really don't make any points. To my understanding however the Jericho of the middle bronze age had no walls, that was from an earlier city.
