I haven’t logged into this youtube account in over 3 years.
The Bible is full of allegorical tales from earlier cultures. It doesn’t take a linguistics ‘Professor’ to know this. It seems that the ‘Professor’ feels like he has found some truth that only the “academic few” are aware of. This is not the case.
For you, the Bible and God are one in the same. Both you and the ‘Professor’ believed at one time that something written by Man is the ‘Word of God’.
When this no longer appears to be true, you discount God entirely as did the ‘Professor’. Try reading Bernard Haisch for a different perspective. You seem to have committed to a one track analysis of God’s existence, largely led by someone who may be looking for answers himself (reason he was reading the amazon reviews in the first place).
“For you, the Bible and God are one in the same.”
Ummm… nope! The blatant refutation of this particular statement occurs at 0:25 in this video:

Prejudiced and mistaken judgements like this happen a lot when people don’t watch the entire series before critiquing it.
