Old Testament Question

Old Testament Question
Achlles' threads got me thinking. I have a question about the Old Testament, and I don't believe there is a simple answer. If this has been presented before, I'm sorry for opening a new thread. My intention is to challange what everyone knows about biblical scripture, and to get people to ask questions beyond, "It just is." I'm hoping to get theoretical and biblical answers. This thread is for serious theorists, biblical scholars, and historians. I'm expecting both biblical facts and theoretical probability.

I'm not a person who memorizes biblical scripture line by line; therefore, I'm going to be using theoretical reasoning. One night while skimming the book of Genisis, I stumbled upon some scriptural anomalies. Being a person with casual religious practice, I needed to seek out some answers. Everyone I talked to were of religious affiliation, and they all couldn't give me a definitive answer. I walked away with more questions than answers.

My findings -

I have heard the trinity theory, but it just doesn't add up. Maybe someone could shead some light on the subject. Do you see the anomalies?

Thank you kindly,
