Re: Techy Evidence
Perhaps it's time to move on to some more of the corroborating evidences of the veracity of the Biblical record; prophecies relative to modern technology.
Prophet John; NT; you read it first in your Bible; technology of television prophesied 2 milleniums before the fact:
Revelation 11 (ASV)
I don't know how you got "television" out of that. I don't know what you are smoking, but I do think you should share.
And to think that creationists describe themselves as the arbiters of what the Bible really says . . . wow, that's scary.

Re: Denial Of The Evidence
On the other hand, if the stories have the same origin, then you would expect to find some disturbing similarities between the two.
But how would this be evidence of the biblical record as being historically accurate? If, say, the Nez Perce flood myth and the Biblical flood myth are similiar isn't this just as much evidence for the accuracy of the Nez Perce myth as the Biblical myth? Also, how does having a common origin make that origin real? Can't two similar myths originate from a common myth?
