That whole 40-years-in-the-desert tale is ludicrous on its face.<quoted text>No I am not talking about Moses and the passover, I'm talking about the slaughter of everyone in Jabesh-gilead were 400 virgins were given to men they knew not.
And I'm talking about Mose command to kill all of the Midianites as "Now kill all the boys and all the women who have slept with a man. Only the young girls who are virgins may live; you may keep them for yourselves."
So am I to understand that in the entire Globe only 7 people believed in God" Really? World-wide, only 7 people? And what documentation have you to show this to be true?
So you God has an escape plan? If someone believed in NIKE the winged Goddess, and felt confident that she would protect them if the jumped from a very high cliff, do you think they should?

Thee is NO evidence that the Egyptians held Hebrews as slaves. As I said before there has never been any archeological evidence that the hebrews wandered in the desert for 40 years, not one shard of pottery, not one bone. They find cave painting hundreds of thousands of years old, burial pits full of bones, but thousands wandering in a desert for 40 years nada--zip--zilch!!!
This issue with Hitler was how the Catholic Church treated him. celebrated his birthday, turned over documents to the SS that allowed people to be imprisoned, tortured, and killed, and never excommunicated him for these horrendous crimes against humanity.
The damn' Sinai is only about 150 miles across, and a desert-dwelling people couldn't figure out to keep Polaris on their left? Walk towards the sunset?
(It makes sense to travel at night in the desert.)
