2.9. Manna

Bible:

God presumably dropped "manna" from heaven six days a week to feed the jews during their 40 year trip of 200 miles.

Truth:

There is no such thing as manna. If there were, gawd would have used it in at least one other occasion.

For example, gawd let 30 million Tibetans starve to death between 1959 and 1962 because Mao made them attempt to grow wheat in the Tibetan highlands when barley had been the proven grain.

Famines, some caused by gawd's natural disaster (draught) and others caused by one or two men who exercised their "free will", that gawd could have prevented with more Manna:
