In terms of other religious texts they don't really compare because these other ancient documents are either fragments or poetic.

And the Bible isn't? Do you know the history of the Bible?

Enjoy reading - you might be surprised how historically accurate the bible is.

No it isn't...whatever ya do, don't read the Bible as a historical account.

For example did you know they have actually found the remains of the tower of babel.

They have? Can you cite a paper on this?

One can only guess why they don't teach this in school...

I can, but I'm not sure it would be the same reason as you would posit.
