We all have prejudices, and when we search for "evidence" if we are being honest, we don't want to find any evidence that is contrary to our beliefs. Matter of fact we usually just dismiss it until we find something that coincides with what we already believe.
Believing in God is easy and natural. I think you must really try hard not to believe in Him? Same said with the Bible. When I write something I sometimes think to myself "I don't know how they can answer these things, yet I know they will". And sometimes, I think you actually believe what you're saying?
Archeological discoveries that help claims made by the Bible don't seem to really matter. Things like the City of Ur, which once was used as skeptic fodder against Bible claims, but when the city was unearthed it didn't change anyone's opinion. Why? Because we only believe what we want to.
Some claim the Bible borrowed things from other religions, yet over 3000 yrs ago those same religions claimed that the Earth was supported by a Turtle or Atlas or by a Catfish or Elephant. While the Bible states "God stretches out the north over the empty place and hangs the Earth on nothing". (Job 26:7) Scientists used to claim that there's not enough water on Earth to have a worldwide flood. Then they discovered fountains of waters in the oceans depths. Which the Bible could have told you about. (Gen. 7:1) Do you think that changed anyone's mind.
My friend questions the validity of Moses, if they found a record of Moses tomorrow, you might believe that Moses existed, or you might not, but it wouldn't make you believe in Christ anymore. We can claim that Jesus never existed, or Paul or Moses, that list can get awful long. And we can play that game forever, and many have. And there are BTW many things that point to a Moses and plagues and Egypt etc. around the time he claims.
No matter how hard people try to debunk the Bible it just hasn't happened. How did these uneducated, simple minded goat herders write something with such truth, wisdom and power and be so far ahead of it's time in things like science and prophecy and biology, oh yeah I got biology and prophetic stats too. But so what, it's just more stuff to debunk.
I try to stay away from these type of arguments that "prove" something. And I know I haven't proved anything here today either? My point to this post is something I've said a few times before, "There is plenty of evidence to support your belief in Atheism, if that's what you want". And yes, I do want there to be a God, I'm just thankful that there is still so much evidence that supports my faith.
