    I request proof that the Torah was written by God or dictated by Him to Moses. I can provide evidence that the Torah was not written by Moses. For example, in Talmud Bavli, Baba Bathra 14b, a Beraitha states that Joshua wrote the last 8 verses of the Torah, and a controversy between two Rabbis over this matter is reeported there. If the Rabbis really had a reliable tradition that the Torah was dictated by God to Moses, then there wouldn't have been any controversy. One cannot decide on the Mosaic authorship of the Torah by havig a committeee of Rabbis decide it was, no more than one can arrive at Jesus' true birthday by having a Council of Bishops (Nicea, 325 CE) decide he wss born December 25. If you would like more evidence that the Torah wasn't written by Moses, I can direct you to some reerences in Rabbi Abraham Ibn Ezra's 12th century commentary to the Torah.
