17. hmmm

You ask the question, "Do observers realize that the story of Moses is BS." As if you have all the answers and it is you that we should come to for the answers. The fact is that you are only making a subjective assumption. If Egypt did not have or use slaves on a large scale, then they would have indeed been an oddity on the world stage, because slavery was very much the norm worlswide.

I said they did not have slavery as depicted in the Bible. That was closer to the slavery in Babylonia

You say the Jews were not slaves in Egypt. In that case you are right because the term 'Jews' did not even exist at that time.

All the more reason why those events did not happen

You say that much was "co-opted Babylonian myths, the same as Noah." It makes perfect sense that many biblical stories are similar to Babylonian tales, and others. The fact is that the cultures came from a common linage and therefore many of these stories were passed down orally and in writings over the years in both cultures.

The FACT IS that you do not KNOW anything. Pure blather.

I do know when there is no historical evidence to support a story. Do you have any facts to support anything of the Passover story being true, or are you just blathering as well.
