1. The pyraomids were built mikenia before the Hebrews even existed.
2. The Hebrews are the same peole as the Canaanires.
3. There is no record in all of Egypt for slave labor. Rather the archaelogical record and several written records indicates that laborers on the royal building projects were well provided for.
4. Even many Jewish scholars admit that the "Exodus" is more Heroic Legend than History.
5. Jesus never mentions Exodus, Pharoe or Egypt. So as far as Chrisitnaity should be concerned, it is as meaningless as Stonehenge is to Hinduism.

There is conflicting information about Jericho from Archeologist and Historians.

Some say there is evidence to support the story in the bible and others have made claims it didnít happen. When one looks at where Jericho is located in modern times itís clear as to why there is a dispute.

It is in Palestinian control. The Palestinians and Israelis are not considered good friends. Itís in the best interest of Palestinians to deny the story of Jericho.

Wiki:

Jericho (&#65532; /&#712;d&#658;&#60 3;r&#618;ko&#650;/; Arabic: &#1571;&#1585;&#16 10;&#1581;&#1575;& #8206; &#702;Ar&#299;&#77 17;&#257; [&#660;a&#712;ri&# 720;&#295;a](&#65532; listen); Hebrew: &#1497;&#1456;&#15 12;&#1460;&#1497;& #1495;&#1493;&#1465; &#8206;&#8206; Yeri&#7717;o [je&#641;i&#712;&# 967;o](&#65532; listen)) is a Palestinian city located near the Jordan River in the West Bank. It is the administrative seat of the Jericho Governorate. In 2007 it had a population of 18,346.[2] The city was under Jordanian occupation from 1948 to 1967, and under Israeli occupation from 1967 to 1994, when control was handed over to the Palestinian Authority.[3] It is believed to be one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world.[4][5][6]

A few ounce magnet can pick up several pounds of steel. This magnet is made from something invisible called electricity and magnetism. A short shot of this stuff makes that magnet strong enough to do that. You can't even weigh it.

It was not the mass, and thus gravity, of atomic particles doing the pick up. Nor the strong nuclear force. Not directly, anyhow.

That same magnetic force transverses billions of light years, if not as a flux, as a photon. Which then imparts a force to mass it impacts. As a packet, or as a wave.

Which is THE force of the universe?

Do you know what the Passover is?

Do you know where the celebration of the Passover came from?

Did you know that Jesus celebrated the Passover?

Iím not interested in the infidels account of where it derived from.

Matthew 26:17-19
King James Version (KJV)

17. Now the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover?

18. And he said, Go into the city to such a man, and say unto him, The Master saith, My time is at hand; I will keep the passover at thy house with my disciples.

19. And the disciples did as Jesus had appointed them; and they made ready the passover.

As far as evidence of slave labor. The evidence stands tall in the form of pyramids.

I have before. Space in motion being knit.

I answered some of that in the post following this one I am responding to. I do not claim clairvoyancy.

Space was set in motion to make matter. Magnetism is streams of space. Electricity is loops of magnetism in packets. Magnetism produces particles, particles produce atoms, and the atoms produce the packets. The packets then produce magnetism. Call the magnetism magnetic current. More descriptive.

Good night.

Yet, I can walk out of my front door, climb in my vehicle and with very little effort, find Aboriginal American artifacts and sites that date anywhere from 500 to 5000+ years old.
Within one or two hours.
There was a very extensive archaeological survey done in the region that the "Exodus", and subsequent 40 year trek in the Sinai desert was alleged to have occurred,that revealed sites and artifacts from the Neolithic period, and earlier.
The teams of archaeologists surmised that at any point in history, that the region might have supported somewhere in the area of 15,000-25,000 people at any given time, and that it would have been almost impossible to have supported more than 150,000 at ANY time. Given resources, water, food etc...
Not one trace, however, of the type of evidence that could support the Exodus story as being literal.
I moved from Houston to Illinois. If you go over the 800 miles between here and there you will find no evidence of my move.

Why?

Because I took everything with me.

Just come out and say what we all know. You have no proof to counter the Exodus story except innuendos and hunches.

If the story wasn't in the bible, would we have any good reason to think it happened? The only reason there might be a dispute is because people are desperate to prove a central biblical story.

I believe it has already been explained to you why em is not the dominant force in the universe. It cancels itself out over long distances, and it follows the inverse cube law, not the inverse square law. A magnet being able to pick something up does not prove anything no matter how many times you say it.
