Genesis was written in the Bronze Age, but the New Testament including the teaching of Jesus was written in a sophisticated society

This is pretty funny.

and it backs up many things written in the Old Testament.

Actually it turns most of the Old Testament on its head. The angry, punitive god of Israel miraculously turns into a loving, beneficient god overnight, for one thing. That's a rather significant change, wouldn't you say? Jesus eschews war, common in the Old Testament, in favor of "Love Thy Neighbor" and "Turn the other cheek."

"and it backs up many things written in the Old Testament." Really, it's hilarious how unexamined the Bible is for most believers.
