Camels Cast Doubt On Historicity Of The Bible

Archaeologists from Israel's top university are saying domestication of camels in Israel did not start until around 900 BCE. The first words of the manuscripts which eventually evolved into what we know as the Hebrew Scriptures (or Christian Old Testament) were also written about this same time. Never meant to be canon or a sacred book, these early precursors of the Hebrew Bible were written by an unknown person in the court of David and/or Solomon to provide a national history for Israel and allow them to hold their heads higher among the surrounding ancient civilizations of the world. Never mind that they were largely made up and embellished stories, because making up legends was a popular pastime in those days. The Sumerians, Egyptians, Persians, Romans and eventually the Greeks all fabricated as they pleased. And it pleased them all a lot.
So this discovery showing that domestication of camels did not occur until around the same time that the Hebrew Bible's precursors first began to be written. So all these Bible stories, written from 950 BCE to 300 BCE about events which allegedly took place around 2000 to 1500 BCE are fabrications and embellishments.. My Book "Surrender of Sovereignty" chronicles just how the Old Testament came into existence. To believe the story of Adam and Eve, the war and eventual fall of Lucifer in heaven, the patriarchs who lived to be nearly a thousand years old are probably fabrications. The fall of mankind, the need for a Savior, and the exaltation of the man Jesus to Son-of-Godhood becomes ever less credible.
