93. Ah of course that must be the explanation.
The 200 or 400 year sojourn of the alleged israelites in egypt was just wiped of the records by those damn scribes after the disastrous elimination of the egyptian army. Equally oddly this all allegedly occurred during the New Kingdom era of Egyptian history, the era of Egypt's greatest territorial expansion and power. One might suspect that the elimination of the egyptian army would have registered somewhere in the records. If not in Egypt, then in the vassal states of the region now suddenly liberated. If that military disaster did not happen, then why this great effort to expunge the records?

But where is the archeological evidence of this centuries long residence? A foreign culture living in Egypt for hundreds of years would have left its mark in more that just papyrus and monuments.

Oddly enough we have plenty of data to establish the Hyksos invasion/migration into Egypt, their brief conquest of the kingdom, and their eventual expulsion. Why weren't those records destroyed? How do we have evidence of their existence?
