  1. There is not a shred of historical or archaeological evidence that suggests that Mecca ever existed prior to the 4th century AD when migrants from Yemen initially settled the area and the actual history of Mecca began.
    Nor is there support for the counter-scriptural, history devoid and geographically impossible suggestion that Abraham, Hagar or Ishmael were ever within 1000 kilometers of the place where Mecca was eventually established over 2,000 years after they roamed the earth. Let alone that overland travel from northern to southern Arabia was not possible prior to about the 6th century BC, well over 1,000 years after Abraham, Hagar and Ishmael lived.
