|Moses, Exodus And Genetics by mrmayor(m): 9:03pm On May 27, 2009|
I'm not here to disparage or insult any member’s faith or religion, I believe we all have a right to our opinions. There are genuine questions to people of faith that need answers and for me this is one of them. Its about Moses and the Exodus.
How many people were in Jacobs’s family when they arrived Egypt?
All the souls of the house of Jacob, which came into Egypt, were threescore and ten.
And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls.
Then sent Joseph, and called his father Jacob to him, and all his kindred, threescore
How many left Egypt with Moses?
And the children of Israel were fruitful and increased abundantly and multiplied, and waxed exceedingly mighty and the land was filled with them
12:37 And the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot that were men, beside children
38:26 A bekah for every man, that is, half a shekel, after the shekel of the sanctuary, for every one that went to be numbered, from twenty years old and upward, for six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty men.
In 430 years the population went from 70-75 people all from the same family sharing similar genetic markers to 600,000 men excluding women and children! How did that happen?
What about the Gene Pool; surely 75 people can’t provide stable gene pool for over 2 million people if you include women and children at the rate of A man + wife+ 3 children?
Even more confusing is there were just four generations from (Levi, Kohath, Amram, Moses) how did they arrived 430 years sojourn if it’s only four generations? Surely it’s not a 110 years per generation?

Myths are not written to make any sense.

you're confusing yourself.
First of all, dont just point and pick single verses out of context unless you're just trying to convince yourself you're happy being an atheist or anti-Christian.
If your question is a genuine one, then read the entire chapters you're quoting.
secondly, how did you arrive at 430 years? Was that an actual number mentioned?
thirdly, the term children of Isreal wasnt limited to only the actual blood descendants of Jacob.
