215. Here's an article with some pretty strong evidence against the Egyptian captivity and the Exodus.
Edited on Sun Apr-24-11 11:56 AM by ChadwickHenryWard

Besides discussing logical absurdities and impossibilities, the fairy tale narrative style of Exodus, and the bizarre fact that none of the Pharaohs in the Bible are given a name (not even the one in whose house Moses was raised,) it notes the troublesome fact that both sides of the Red Sea were controlled by Egypt at the time the events supposedly occurred, leaving Moses and his merry band with no where to run to. You can't wander in the desert for forty years if it's patrolled by Egyptian chariots. Further, the Egyptians have an extensive extant written record. Any time anyone scratched his ass, they wrote it down. Yet there is no record of any plaques, any slave uprising, any mention of the Hebrews in Egyptian writing whatsoever. And let's not forget the fact that the Bible would have us believe that Egypt lost its entire military and its entire labor force in a single day, and continued to be a mighty empire for a thousand years afterward. That is perhaps the most astonishing miracle in all of the bible.
