Question

How do I know the Torah is true?
 

Answer

By scientific standards, giving of  Torah can certainly be proven to be true. The complete consensus amongst the nation in the first 1000 years after Sinai mitigates against the Sinai experience being made up. It is impossible to create a fiction that will not have some skeptics and that will not have differing versions of what happened. The Kuzari says that a claim of national revelation can never be made up unless it is true.
