I am not in any "camp."<quoted text> What does convincing you have to do with anything?
<quoted text> They are wrong on the dates. Folks in your camp do not take into account 1 Kings 6:1 which took place 966BC. 480 gets you back to around 1446BC. Late daters got it at 1290 which is about a 156 year difference. They figure the Exodus took place in 1445BC. Amenhotep II was Pharaoh and no match for his father Thutmose III who oppressed Israel and was probably the one who died in Exodus 2:23.
Then comes Amenhotep II and Moses returns to Egypt to confront Pharaoh. You can look at the differences in their rule and note that a lot of fighting and building went on during the reign of Thutmose and a lot less during the reign of Amenhotep. Egypt declines in power during Amenhotep. Assuming the Exodus took place in 1445 then 40 years of wandering gets you to 1405 BC for the destruction of Jericho.
But I will tell you, it's clear as day that you are totally obsessed with a myth.
And nothing anybody says will penetrate your wall of denial.
You are certain that you have the truth.
A sad arrogance.
