It appears the Jews did not wipe out the Canaanites are reported in the Bible. They have been living on quite successfully, thank you, for at least 4,000 years. But it has been in Lebanon, not Canaan.
Digging up the past and having its story told is causing trouble for the Jewish and Christian religions. Those who made up Bible stories did not know DNA and the ability to date discovered objects were in the future. What is being found in DNA and archaeological digs turns out to be quite different than the “history” told in the Bible.
Christianity and Judaism would be much better off if they had burned in ancient times all written works that dealt with history. That is because most of it has turned out not to be true. Those running things could have only allowed the “quotes from Jesus” to be preserved because there is no DNA or archaeological to disprove it.
The problem for believers is that once we have learned the historical claims are false, thinking people will start doubting the quotes from Jesus as well. We have, for example, the claim Jesus made a deal or covenant with followers, you believe in me and I will forgive your sins. If the history is not true why believe any statements attributed to Jesus are true?
Some make the case that the New Testament is more reliable historically. New Testament Matthew 27:52-54 says long dead saints walked out of their graves and were seen by many.
That’s history for comedians.
