My evidence is the incredible similarity between various facets of Moses life with Sargon II of Akkad. Moses was never MEANT to be a real person. Moses is a symbol of something. JL

Who are the Nephilim? There are only 3 interpretations that I'm aware of. One of them has far more symbolism going for it than the other two. JL

IOW, the burning bush occurs near "the mountain of god" Ex 3:1. In the other "burning" one (Moses face "shone" or "emanated ray"), it occurs on Mt. Sinai. Mountains (Zeus) are a prime motif seen in religion of which monotheism is no exception. JL

See how many times in the bible, when god (or Jesus) is out and about, how many times we see fire, flames, noise, thunder, heat, light, stones, hailstones, things descending and ascending. Only one item fits ALL those descriptive terms. JL

of which Yahweh is one. IOW, things that burn, fire, etc. in the bible when associated with Jesus or God usually signify meteorites. JL

Moses came down from the Mt. after meeting with Yahweh with a face that "glowed" or "shone" or "emanated rays". Noah is described in the Book of Enoch as having hair as white as wool and eyes that lit up the room. Jesus is described using the SAME terms in Revelation. Why? Do you think it's coincidence? Do you think the writers did this for a purpose? Do you th

First things first. Was Moses real? What evidence exists for his existence? Did Moses predate Sargon and Sargon stole Moses biography? Was it the other way around? Are BOTH historical and it's simple coincidence (re: their biographies). Are both mythical and there's a reason Moses bio was borrowed from Sargon's? To me, it's somewhat moot who preceeded who or who was real and who wa

that people like Dr. Bart Ehrman can't. That's not to say Alford is right, but he does present his evidence on areas (Nephilim, for example) that no one else seems to come close to. JL

Both are "creation stories". Both represent meteorites. Both use symbolism (heavily). Both have a dying and resurrecting god. Both have a "trinity". Both have the Horus/Isis iconography. For starters. One religion tended to get eaten up (focused on literalism) by literalists while the other remains "intact". The rest is minutiae. JL

the SEED of ALL living things (not just ones in their regional area). IMHO, the Noah flood is a creation epic/story. Nothing more, nothing less. Why is Noah described in the SAME way that Jesus is in Revelation? JL

Yes, the heavens contain the stars/constellations. However, the catastrophic events on earth (deluge/flood) are CYCLICAL. IOW, they occur over and over ad infinitum. That's why the Nephilim (meteorites) DESTROYED as well as created (i.e. resurrected life occurs once it moves from below ground to above ground). Thus, the "second" coming of Jesus (Revelation) isn't really the 2nd c

In that Parable I saw how a mighty quaking made the heaven of heavens to quake, and the host of the Most High, and the angels, a thousand thousands and ten thousand times ten thousand, were 2 disquieted with a great disquiet.

from Gilgamesh is a FAR more specific description of exactly what was in this "ark" (and what the significance of water was). Conversely, with the story of Noah (Genesis), we have a "dumbed down" (maybe not purposefully as it's quite possible the scribe himself didn't quite understand the earlier stories himself) version in which now it's a LONG flood (40 days) rather than a
