Diving into Noah's Flood
Thank you for your show on Noah's flood.
I actually participated on this dig for a few days and met Dr. Richard Cutter, and his team.They are doing wonderful things over there finding things for the new Museum that is being built.
My research I was completing is the taking a C.S.I. look at the path Moses took up with his people leaving Egypt.
Even after performing detailed research, I was completely amazed at how history is skewed; from the location of Mount Sinai, and how the default Mount Sinai has no artifacts, and the one in Saudi Arabia that is tightly secured by the Saudi government.
The site looks like early Israelites left only weeks ago because of all the scattered artifacts on top of the surface.
I was also thrown back little by the amount of gold and silver that was transported out of Egypt by the Israelites themselves that were thought to be slaves?
Knowing that slaves were not allowed to process gold in any quantity, it perplexes me how the book of Maccabees written by the Israelites, and the Exodus reports over 12,000 pounds of gold and 6000 pounds of silver were being moved by oxen and cart throughout his journey.
I guess my question is and has been; how did the Israelite s slaves happened to come to so much gold, when even in today's economic terms that would be billions of dollars?
The precious metals were recorded by themselves, on three separate Scriptures.
The amount of gold is very clear. There is even mention of the difficulty during the transportation of so much precious metal; so the amount cannot be dismissed by ambiguity of factors, weight charts, and weight comparisons lost in translation over millennium.
However one looks at Moses and his journey is a great story
that last through time. Like you dissecting
the story of Moses and its parts of the journey, one can see it is no longer a
myth or fable, but has real history and proven science behind it.
