Robert Ingersoll is one of the most outstanding and important persons of the 19th century, who is now absolutely unknown. Ingersoll was considered as ‘great agnostic’. He devoted his life to challenging people to rethink their biased views about religion and the Bible. In this book he analyses Genesis, and over a century later it still makes readers to rethink and reconsider their notions. Ingersoll’s chapters about the tower of Babel, the plagues God had Moses inflict upon Egypt, the Jews flight from Pharaoh, including their forty years of roaming in the Sinai Desert, render these stories whimsical and unworthy of literal belief, much less divine inspiration. The author shows clear logic, common sense, and amazing sense of humor. Witty and scholarly, "Some Mistakes of Moses" is a definite must read.
