I'm Raafat a new member and friend from Egypt. I have an Islamic background, a Muslim no more though. I am now Agnostic, and in spirit of seeking the truth I've some questions about OT.
First things first, is the creation account to be taken literally? Or may be poetically? It is not-so-compatible with current cosmology and Theory of Evolution.
Why does Genesis mention Edomite kings whereas they existed long long after Moses, supposing he is the writer?
Is Exodus account factual? There is nothing in Old Egypt that mentions it? If anything mentioned, I'd be very much happy if I was referred to it.
Why does Exodus and Genesis mention that Egyptians had Camels when they were only introduced to Egyptians in the Persian empire?
Does anyone here read about JDEP theory? If so, if it is right what are its effects on the faith?
