If the Biblical Exodus is a Myth, How do you explain over 40,000 Egyptian Chariots under the floor bed of the red sea/sea of reeds that predates the same time line all the same model? If Jesus is a myth how do you explain the death records in Rome with name Yusha.(real name of Jesus) He fits the same description as Jesus and how he died and every thing.
Can you please explain this? =dyQs4Y6nfVwXX
If the bible is such a myth, why are things being taken out? Why is is always the only so called religion being attacked?
I never knew that Jesus was present at the time of Exodus!!

Why his name should be mentioned in Egyptian Records?

A sure case of forgery!!

Do I have any proof that it's not what? A massive exaggeration?
Proof is for math equations and liquor. Outside of that all you have is evidence for or against.
There is plenty of evidence that the global flood didn't happen (let alone that it's obviously a fairy tale). There are societies and possibly even LIVING organisms surviving today that must have lived right through it. That's just a basic starting point...there are literally hundreds if not thousands of reasons why it didn't or couldn't happen. On the other hand there is also a complete lack of evidence that it DID if we needed that.
As for the "Exodus". Outside of the obvious conclusion that Moses (if there was a man named Moses) could not and did not part a sea...we have a much different story uncovering with modern archeology. It tells a much different story than a mass exodus of 2 million or some odd people (600K men and 600K women plus chidrens) not counting livestock. I mean Egypt had an estimated population count of roughly 3M at the time. Are we to believe the slaves outnumbered their opressors 2-1? Maybe they were too dumb to live on their own. LOL! Once again there is also a complete lack of evidence (outside the bible) that it did happen.
Why there should be a Universal flood?

Why should you take the words of Bible "literally".

If all the lands and mountains around their dwelling place were drowned, it would seem as if whole world is under water.

Why the flood should cover the entire lobe?

The "correct interpretation" is that by Noah's time, humanity was living in a fixed geographical location, at which the great flood came.

Only people who survived the flood were those who were in the ark.

These people after the flood spread to other parts of the world and started new civilization.

That is why we find the "legend on great flood" in many ancient cultures, India being one of them.

Obviously the dates mentioned in Bible are wrong, as so much of the historical and genealogical details.

But it would be unwise to call the entire story a myth. Not with so much supporting evidence coming from different cultures.


And by the way, Quran does not say that it was a Universal flood, it says that it was for people of Noah.!!

But our "experts" on this thread would be ready to accept Biblical version 100 % only because it is "different from Quran" the "Cheap copy of Bible"!!

Yes it is. There is no record of any Jews being taken from Israel and made Egyptian slaves. There is no record of Ramses ever having Jewish slaves. There is no record of any Jew being adopted by any Egyptian Pharaoh at any time. The story of Moses existed long before the Bible or even the Tanakh was written in other cultures.
It shows as if you know each and every word of Egyptian history!!

How much those Egyptians wrote and how much of it survived is a matter of speculation.

Jews stay in Egypt was only for two centuries and some decades. What is wrong if record of that period is "missing" from Egyptian's records.

It could be a work of jealousy too, to erase all records concerning those "cursed Jews".
