Batten collects a variety of supposed uncertainties in science dealing with the past that could allow one to simultaneously maintain belief in the validity of the scientific method and the literal interpretation of the Book of Genesis through confirmation bias. The article's apparent intent is to help other creationists struggling with cognitive dissonance and for use as a conversion tool. In addition to numerous factual errors and failures to understand the theories it intends to criticize, the document suffers from faulty logic. A list of arguments broken down by fallacy is presented at the end of this page. Although the list claims to have points, several are just reworded duplicates, and one is even a copy of the preceding item. Almost every reference link in the original article either goes directly to creationist sources or to popular 'science' magazines that support creationism.

This article examines the Young Earth creationist and Biblical literalist claims regarding the historical reality of the Exodus of the Hebrew people from Egypt , as well as the evidence relating to such claims. Mainstream history and archaeology now consider the Exodus to not have happened in the manner described in the Bible, and the story to be a narrative put together between the 8th and 5th centuries BCE , based on earlier oral traditions and collective memories possibly dating as far back as the 13th century BCE. A detailed examination of the innumerable issues raised by the fringe Velikovsky and David Rohl's alternate chronologies is beyond the scope of this article, and will not be attempted here. Archaeologists from the 19th century onward actually expressed surprise when they failed to find any evidence whatsoever for the events of Exodus.
