Has our Creator, who gave us senses and wisdom, given them to deceive us?

We all have been taught the good values in the Bible and the stories and their morals and wisdom. Each time we go to church, synagogue or a mosque we will be quoted some selections or chapters of the Torah and the Bible, that will impress us with their morals and wisdom. Have we ever asked ourselves, Is there anything in this writing that cannot be written by wise humans? The assumption that these values must be given by God, because otherwise we will have a complete immoral society, is completely false. If fact, what I am going to prove in the following examples that our civil laws, in most countries in the world are far better than the crude, stupid and cruel laws of the Torah. After you read the following examples, the conclusion can only be one: The Torah is not a holy book given to us by God. It was written by priests and scholars in the ancient world, and it reflects their values and their knowledge of the world at that time!

23 If there be a damsel that is a virgin betrothed unto a man, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her; 24 then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die: the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour's wife; so thou shalt put away the evil from the midst of thee.

28 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, that is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found; 29 then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife, because he hath humbled her; he may not put her away all his days.
