105. Of course it is BS, that does not mean
it is a good story of freedom and all that. It goes beyond just religious belief.

Yes it was put together by King Josiah and his scribes in the seventh century BCE from both Egyptian and Babylonian sources... and the word abadin... does not mean slave. That is just a lazy translation. Consider that the nugget of truth in there. It means corvee labor. Which did exit in Egypt during the High Kingdom.

Oh and God will find a very dirty kitchen and even bread waiting to be baked. We don't do the matzoh. I am highly allergic to it. I don't eat the bread either... corn for me baby. (And I get a pass from gawd himself, as I should not do what makes me sick... thanks Gawd)

Yet one part of the story struck me as funny. Why do we eat matzoh... no time to let bread rise. I wonder, since most people no longer bake bread at home... just how much real sense that makes to kids, not to mention adults. I mean why not stop by the seven eleven and pick up a loaf?

By the way, I will tell you the same thing I did tell my brother, who does not believe it is BS and was trying to prove to me how much it was real using that wonderful high production value, history channel program... it just has one problem, it wasn't forty years in the desert, but oh 1000 years of history, oh was he pissed when I pointed this out... live and let live... that works best.
