Science, Religion definitely don’t mix

Random ramblings and thoughts on history and Christianity.
Why would God allow the Jewish people to be enslaved by the Egyptians?
Why wouldn’t God just change the heart of the Pharaoh, instead of killing all those humans and animals in the time of Moses?
Why did the Jews have to fight to take the ‘promised land?’
Didn’t Jesus know he would be resurrected to sit at the side of God; that he was the son of God, or maybe God himself, if you believe in a triune God.
Radiocarbon dates of less than 10,000 years are very accurate. lots of times can be checked and calibrated against historical records.
