The reality of Archaeological consensus: Moses

  • “How one can travel in future time and place? Any idea?” Paarsurrey your concepts of time are based on modern precepts, obviously not those at the time the Quran was penned/envisioned

    You see this is the problem with any story, with ‘time’ it gets lost in translation with old and new metaphors and belief constructs being intermixed at one’s interpretative convenience. As I’m sure you have no memory of being around at the time the Quran first appeared, I’m sure you will agree that it is difficult to substantiate with any ounce of truth or proof. And don’t start telling me there is any archaeological evidence of pure hearsay.

    I’ve studied archaeology at university, and it is a very vague pursuit at best based on probabilities. It is difficult to prove anything beyond a moment ago, even with radio-carbon dating. Getting exact dates and facts is still nigh on impossible, unless of course you happen to find a coin with a date on it, which for any archaeologist is still the most important find.

    • Hi Isshaiya

      Quoting words from your post:
      “And don’t start telling me there is any archaeological evidence of pure hearsay. I’ve studied archaeology at university, and it is a very vague pursuit at best based on probabilities. It is difficult to prove anything beyond a moment ago, even with radio-carbon dating.

      I think it is friend john zande and friend Arkenaten who got impressed by the Archaeological finds; please tell them of your experience with the Archaeology at University..

      They should revise their thought about Archaeological finds and the shaky building of their thoughts erected on them.

    • Careful, i can hear you ;)

      To correct your statement: we get impressed by the complete ABSENCE of archaeological finds supporting the stories contained in the bible. Big difference.

    • I don’t think that even complete absence of Archaeological finds do not mean that Moses did not exist at all; it will only mean that there is a possibility that Moses did not set his foot on the place where such Archaeological works/investigation were conducted, not more than that.

      I think friend Ishaiya should come forward and give her opinion on the matter.

      There is no harm if other Archaeologists reading these posts/blogs should give their opinion; it is just a friendly discussion; no embarrassment to anybody is intended.

      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
