LOL, you merely prove that you have absolutely nothing to offer here.

I don't see anybody twisting your arm forcing you to post here about subjects that you obviously know nothing about.

What can one offer when this book hasn't even published yet. I offered an argument for the idea that Moses was a historical figure. Your response was that she has responded to my line of reasoning but you don't know what her argument is exactly. So it's you that haven't proven your case. I say Manetho makes the idea that 'Moses' goes back to a historical figure likely. You have nothing to say other than to promote your own book.

Wow, what a nasty despicable person you are ... there are threads here discussing books not yet published like the Maurice Casey and Carrier books for example. You just seem to have some stick up your ass or Tourette's syndrome.

You have already lost all credibility discussing anything by Acharya as you've already admitted you've never read a single book of hers and everything else I've seen from you is based on lies, smears and intellectual dishonesty. Do us all a favor and stay in your own threads rather than troll up everybody else's.

But I thought this was a discussion about whether Moses existed or not. I've presented some evidence for why we should think there was a historical Moses. You haven't responded to that. All you've done is call me names. What are you here to do - promote your book or discuss whether or not Moses existed? I've presented evidence. Please respond.

This is insane. You won't respond to my response in this thread because I have not read this lady's books. But this isn't a thread about a published book. Maybe this is how you guys do things at your discussion forum (i.e. sell product, sell product, sell product). But this isn't the way things are done here. Why is at always about selling books with you? There is no book to buy here. Unless the real purpose of the thread was again just a shake down for money for another book ...

Ok, I see where all your anger and hate comes from now going off about book sales:

The Real Messiah: The Throne of St. Mark and the True Origins of Christianity
http://www.amazon.com/Real-Messiah-Thro ... 1906787123

Your own book ranks just under 1.4 million on Amazon right and there are more 1 star reviews than anything else so, it looks like not very many believe a word you say, Huller.

I'm seeing reviews titled "Useless," "Huller failed to join the dots," "Do I have to give it a Star?" and "Delusional nonsense. This book never should have been written."
"Filled with wild leaps of logic to justify a preconceived notion, this book has little concrete evidence after all is said and done."
- Joel D. Brinkerhoff
So you believe in a historical Jesus and that's why you get so upset over these topics ... because you're trying to uphold your historical Jesus.

Now, your knee-jerk reactions make more sense. You're jealous and have to go to great lengths to uphold your own position.

Yes people didn't like my book and they were right. It could have been better. Had I been coming to a forum like this where people attack bad ideas it would have been a better book. FWIW that book also had effusive praise from Eisenmann and Price. :confusedsmiley:

Hi, Tom. Welcome to the forum. :)

Maybe you could open a new thread with the material from raptureforums so that we can discuss it here? That could be interesting.

Since there is evidence in the archaeological record for some of the events in Exodus, and since the timing of the Exodus is verified by the evidence, and since Queen Hatshepsut herself described "the vagabonds" living in Egypt before the 15th century BC, it's an act of academic dysfunction to try to deny that the Exodus happened.

There are a lot of people who try to interpret history based on emotional response.
Never, never, never fall into this trap.

History is data devoid of emotion. You either know what happened or you don't, and if you don't, it's nothing personal.

I'm reading the book now and she quite thoroughly debunks everything you've brought up.
