Could Abraham Write? Could Moses? Could Adam?

You have probably been told that Moses couldn't write -- so the books attributed to him (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy) could not have been written by him and had to have been written much much later by other folks.

This was 'taught' to me in College years ago and is still being taught today.

But is that true?  

Could Moses not write? Was there really no writing back in his day?

Moses was a descendant of Abraham and it is well known by archaeological excavations that there was much writing in Abraham's time. 

Shopping lists, accounting lists, and other such written artifacts have been found in the very town where Abraham was born and lived.

So, if Abraham could write, it logically follows that Moses could also.

So how about Adam?  

Well, according to the Bible, Adam could write also since he wrote a book!

The Bible says that Adam wrote a book?
