It has become fashionable, popular, and even lucrative to find reasons to disbelieve in the Bible and its accuracy. Any research or study that comes along that challenges the Bible in any way gets immediate play in the main stream media and rarely are any retorts or responses ever published.

Recently a study on the domestication of camels in the eastern Mediterranean region indicated that there was no use of the animal in the Holy Land until the 10th century B.C. (B.C.E.). The news was sensationally presented far and wide as proof that the Bible was inaccurate.

But does the study really prove that the Bible story, which indicates that Abraham and his family regularly used camels as early as the 21st century B.C. (B.C.E.), is necessarily wrong? I don’t believe so.

Fact: Abraham and his family came from Mesopotamia where domesticated camels were in use at the time.

Is it really so far fetched to consider that a family from Mesopotamia would bring along their camels when they moved to Canaan? Then teach the following generations of their family to continue to raise and use them even though the people in their new country did not have or use them at the time?            *Top

Here are two good articles that also address this issue in even greater detail:

“Camels and Babylonian Floods Disprove the Bible? Am I Missing Something?”
