    Most recently...

    I've been reading much about the Battle of Kadesh...

    I have become very interested in this dynasty........

    my quesions.... what I've been thinkin about is this...

    If God never manifests into a form......

    How could he come to Moses as a "burning bush".......

    Would everyone agree that Moses... lived in Egypt.... and was learned in Egypt...

    As well as Homer.. author to the Iliad and Odessey.........

    Miss Lady you have to first understand that the bible is a collection of folklore passed down thousands of years that changed as new idea's, discoveries and loyalties changed. Although a great book, there is more that should NOT be taken literally than is. So, the belief that it is divinely inspired and inerrant can only be reconciled by those who ignore truth because they believe their eternal souls are at stake.

    So for the burning bush...let's NOT take that one literally.

    I never take things literally......

    I always just ask philisophical questions...... just because I don't understand why instead of interpreting things for ourself we just accept them.... even if they don't make common sense... (I am beginning to understand tho, that either you just get it or you don't)

    I agree with you..... and I wish the some would unreconcile....

    I appreciate you response.....

    The bulk of the character Moses is comprised from an Egyptian pharaoh named Akhenaten / Amenhotep IV.
