Does Archaeology Prove Or Disprove That The Bible Is The Word Of God?

By
Bassam Zawadi

 

 

Some Christians such as this one try to prove that the Bible is the word of God from archaeology. However, archaeology does not prove the Bible is from God, it could only prove that it is an accurate history book. However, is it completely accurate?


According to the Bible Adam was created approximately 6,000 years ago...

The ages and relationships of the patriarchs, given in Genesis and shown on the opposite page, allow one to estimate the time of Adam’s creation at slightly more than 6,000 years ago.  What uncertainties are involved?

a. These ages are based on the Hebrew (Masoretic) text. The corresponding numbers in the Samaritan and Greek (Septuagint) texts place Adam’s creation about 6,200 and 7,300 years ago, respectively. (Dr. Walt Brown.,In the Beginning: Compelling Evidence for Creation and the Flood, (7th Edition), Source)

However, recent archaeological evidence shows something interesting...

The fossilized skulls of two adults and one child discovered in the Afar region of eastern Ethiopia have been dated at 160,000 years, making them the oldest known fossils of modern humans, or Homo sapiens. (Robert Sanders, "160,000-year-old fossilized skulls uncovered in Ethiopia are oldest anatomically modern humans", UC Berkley News, 11 June, 2003, Source)

Scientists have unearthed three 160,000-year-old human skulls in Ethiopia that are the oldest known and best-preserved fossils of modern humans' immediate predecessors. (Rick Callahanm, "160,000-Year-Old Skulls Found", CBS News, June 11 2003, Source)


If Adam is supposed to be the first man created and then according to the Bible Adam was created around 6000 years ago doesn't that go against archaeological evidence that suggests that there were human beings at least 160,000 years ago? 

The Quran is completely silent on the issue of when Adam was created so this argument cannot be used against Islam. 

However, it could be used against the Bible and archaeological evidence has come to expose its errors.

Jesus mentioned Muhammad by the name in the Bible.

Did Isaiah 53 really prophesies about the crucifixion of Jesus? It supports Islam's claims about Jesus peace be upon him never died on the cross.  I also addressed John 19:36-37 from the Bible and proved that Jesus never got crucified, since GOD Almighty promised that he will protect Jesus' body and not let even a single bone be broken.     My question to all Christians is: How in the world is it possible for the feet to get nailed on the cross without any penetration to the bones by the nails, hence breaking part of the feet's bones?! I also added refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20, which supposedly prove the Christians' belief about Jesus crucifixion.  I proved that this dogma has no truth what so ever and exposed the wrong Trinitarian English translation of Zechariah 12:10.
