Biblical stupidity part 4

There are 7427 blatant absurdities in the bible. Among them:
-Jesus as a historical figure is not mentioned by any contemporary non-Christian writers. Furthermore, no crucifixion would have been performed on the eve of Passover. It was a cruci-fiction.
-Matthew 2: 1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
-Luke 2:1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.
2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
(Matthew 2:1 says Jesus was born in the reign of Herod, who died 4 BC. Luke 2:2 says he was born during Quirinus’ governorship of Syria, which began 6 AD.)
-Matthew 27:38 Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.
-Matthew 27:44 The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth.
(Thieves were never punished by crucifixion).

-Luke 23:44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.
45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
(There is no contemporary historical confirmation of darkness covering the earth at the crucifixion)
-Matthew 2:16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men.
17 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying,
18 In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.
(There is no contemporary historical confirmation of the slaughter of the innocents by Herod. Josephus, whose history contains much criticism of Herod, does not mention it.)
-Matthew 27:52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
(There is no contemporary historical confirmation of the graves opening and the dead appearing to many at the crucifixion.)

[Bonus question: how many women were at the supposed tomb of Jesus?]
