    Thomas, ISTM the best thing I can do re all your comments and ideas is to just keep laying out the problems with the figures as they stand, not only in the Numbers censuses but in the whole Hebrew Bible. Be aware that the terms “numerous” or “filled the country” or “cover the land” are subjective, relative, and contextual. What may seem a crowd to you in a 21C first-world urban context bears no relation to a Bronze Age agricultural or pastoral setting.
