we have museums filled with archaeological evidence supporting the biblical record.
No, we don't. When I was an evangelical Christian, I went looking for this evidence as I had been told the same lie. I could not find it. I went to the Biblical Archaeological Review, the one serious evangelical Christian archaeology publication, and they showed that it does not exist. There is very little evidence consistent with the OT, never mind that actually supports the OT narrative.
There is no evidence for Moses and the Exodus. There is plenty of evidence against it. There is no evidence for Joshua and the Conquest. There is plenty of evidence against it. There is no evidence for any of the Judges and no evidence for Saul. For mighty David and all his great stories, there is one scrap of pitiful evidence that may just mention his name - that is all - and many dispute that it has anything to do with the David of the OT.
There is virtually no evidence at all for the entire pre-captivity OT narrative of the Jews, and a very good reason for this is that it was all made up by the captivity-period priests.
