Funny, poly. I have a book that says the Exodus IS real...
Sorry, but the actual facts don't support your "evidence".

Oh Eagle, You proved you can be humurous and intelligent. If all your posts were as good as this one, I know several 'non-believers' who would respect you.

Actually he made a reality point.
Archeology in the Middle East is repressed by both sides because of the political implications. Since 1949 the archeology and history of the area has been little science and more "prove my religion".
No, he didn't. Questioning a story whose only evidence is from the bible is not antisemitism. That's ridiculous. He compared 'exodus denial' with holocaust denial, do you really think they're on the same level?

Why do you need it to be slave labor so badly, despite the findings of archaeology?
I see your problem here as a general problem of your religion - it denies science. You deny biological science, history and now archaeology.
What you're doing is precisely what the Exodus story in the OT does: creating a mythological story to give you a religious identity.
If you really look at the archeology for the area you will find itís sparse. Iím not talking about pyramids per say. Lots of archeology there but beyond that it is very scarce.

Even if this were true, so what? You are basically saying that if the bible says something, and there is no historical evidence to confirm or deny it, then it is by default true. Do you realize how absurd that is?

Go back through my posts for the last 2 years.

If I thought you were sincere, which I know you aren't, I would consider posting an update of them.

Why don't you try reading what the archaeologists have to say:

So I guess you don't have an answer on any historians who believe that document to be ficiton. So you are speaking from your own "expert opinion"? Do you have a terminal degree in archeology or ancient history?...or was that a comment fired from somewhere other than your mouth?

Evidence in the form of:
1. accounting writings (food and pay for laborers)
2. laborer graves
3. descriptions of where the laborers come from, when they worked
4. descriptions of slaves in Egypt
<quoted text>
Sure. Provide some archaeological evidence, as I have to back up your bold assertions.
<quoted text>
The archaeology is often done by Jews, supported by Israel. They have every reason to say "gosh, look the Bible is legitimate" but they don't, because they're trained archaeologists. And the nation of Israel is stronger than that - they don't need to deny the findings of archaeology to feel good about themselves. They freely acknowledge what the Bible is: a mythology designed to provide cultural identity to the ancient Israelites.
Thanks!

Answer the question please. It is a legit question. You made the statement it is fiction. Now back it up.

It is the truth.

Zero proof of Hebrew slaves in Egypt on some massive scale. Egyptians themselves were more likely to be slaves and they were not allowed to work on prestigious projects.

Zero proof of the exodus.

Zero passages in the bible saying Moses' people built the pyramids.

Everything else is your speculation nothing more.

<quoted text>That very well could have been the case. Except for the fact that slavery was a major part of the time period. And a super power like Egypt couldn’t have that kind of power without slavery. I mean who are we kidding, if we don’t believe slavery was used?

If Hoover Dam had been built in this time period in Egypt. I guarantee you slaves would have been used. Slavery was a part of the landscape. Egypt was no different than any other nation in the region.

If you were the Pharaoh and had a choice between free labor or paid labor which would you have chosen? If you go with paid labor you won’t be able to do major projects without depleting the national treasury.
