    Bill, what is your definition of a "state?" Not the accepted modern one. Maybe you mean a "state of mind?" There are artifacts with Hebrew inscriptions that date from that time, but there are also many other non-Hebrew artifacts, such as the remains of the Philistine cities of the coast, towns such as Jericho, established 8000BC, the oldest known settlement. And there is absolutely no evidence of the famous horn-tooting destruction, as described in the OT. The KINGDOM of Israel dates from probably 1,000 BC, although there is no evidence for the existence of David (except the Tel Dan stele, dated about 800BC, which mentions a king of the house of David--maybe?). Then the tribes of Judah and Benjamin split away to make the KINGDOM of Judaea, both kingdoms were destroyed by Assyrians and Babylonians by the 6th c. BC. Then came Persians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Turks, British. Of course, if your only "history" book is the Bible, any logical discussion with you is futile.
