35. Moses is a laughably unrealistic character, obviously a myth
due to his supernatural powers. He defies reality. There is no evidence for his existence, apart from a book that claims to have been written by him, and yet recounts his death. After he does all the magic stuff. And that scholars think was written about 500 years after the time it claims to describe.

Similarly, that obviously made-up book of miracles and genocide is the only claim that Israelites were a people of slaves in Egypt. It's no better evidence than the scientologists' claims that our ancestors were flown to magic volcanoes in spacefaring DC8s.
