A lot of Christians are creationists, which means their entire belief of how we came to be is based on the book of Genesis - even if they've never actually read it. Too bad because they might change their minds if they did! So who wrote Genesis? I think this is a powerful question when confronted with some idiot who actually thinks the book of Genesis is a true account of the creation of the universe, and that we came directly from 2 people who were created as fully formed humans by a never seen magic man in the sky, in a magic garden that had a talking snake. From the research I've done, even the best Bible scholars don't agree or don't know. About 1/2 of them theorize that it's a mish mosh of stories handed down generation after generation, and about 1/2 think Moses wrote it and that it was dictated to him by God himself. So essentially they're divided between the origin of genesis as rehashed stories and divine dictation. The fatal flaw in the storytelling theory is the fact that there were no eyewitnesses to creation - humans didn't exist so nobody could have taken the detailed notes that is the account of creation in Genesis. This theory busts itself. Obviously whatever stories were being passed down were made up by someone at some point. So we're left with an author, Moses, that no serious archeologist or historian thinks was anything but a mythological character. Like the rest of the Bible, no secular records have ever been found or produced to document a single thing about Moses' life, including the Exodus. So we have a completely mythical character taking notes from another completely mythical character, and based on THAT and that alone, creationists make their argument. Honestly - I don't see how any sane rational person in the 21st century could read even the first few chapters of Genesis without closing the Bible and throwing it in the trash. No one in history has ever found, or produced, any irrefutable secular evidence that validates even one of the Bible's magical claims or characters. Unless and until somebody does produce such evidence, the Bible can only be classified as fiction, and Christianity falls apart completely - and with it, any and all arguments for creationism.
