    No, life on other planets does not disprove the bible, it might disprove certain sects of christianity, but I'm not certain of that.

    Now, what would be interesting would be finding extra-terrestrial life that also held similar religious tenets.

    There are also people that interpret the bible as evidence of extra-terrestrial life.

    No, because ...

    The Bible has been disproven several times, no need to attempt another.

    Maybe I heard that wrong, but it sounded to me like he was saying that : There was a level of fabrication in the story, but not that the individual was not real.

    To that I would just say that it's somewhat excessive to believe the bible stories litterally, but more to take in the messages contained within those stories.

    Kinda like the story of 'the boy who cried wolf'... it's probably never really happened, but that doesn't take away the importance of the message.

    Don't take me wrong, that vid seems to show someone that's studied the issue deeply, and I'm not disputing his research... but rather just pointing out that he's not fully disputing the bible.

    Indeed he doesn't, he's disputing faith.
    I don't believe Hitchens would contest the value of some of the stories in the bible. Like the confuscian message of not doing unto others , who would want to do without. Not me, these stories have value.

    There's no evidence of the Exodus, The city of Jericho didn't exist at the time it supposedly crumbled, etc.

    I thought they had found that 'Jericho' did exist just by another name, and they just named Pre-Jericho as Jericho. Seems to me that if that's true it'd be an honest mistake or foul-up of ancient authors.

    Now I'm going to have to go google this....

    It existed, just not at the time the trumpets were supposedly blown to knock down the walls.

    This does assume that the timeline of the bible is the sequence of the bible. In my reading, it seems quite difficult to determine dates...

    It's possible that the biblical stories are not in any real sequence chronologically, except where chronologies depend on the sequence.
