    I agree that what you say is possible, but I don't hink it as plausible as simple recorded oral history from the Toba Cataclysm.

    Lol, it is amazing how some people cannot distinguish between historical record and recorded mythology.

    I just gave a plausible time line and naturalistic explanation for everything in Exodus.

    But you are well within your right to remain uninformed if you wish.

    For me it’s Torah analysis.

    To embrace God or reject him is your personal choice, it has to come from the heart, you have no right to criticize or ridicule one for their religious beliefs.

    Who is saying that no plagues and no one named Moses in Egypt?

    What we don't have is any evidence that the Moses of the Bible ever existed- but certainly he could have.
    And we don't have any evidence that the Plague of the Bible happened- though certainly the Bible could be referencing one of the many, many plagues that hit Egypt.
    And we don't have any evidence that the Red Sea was parted and swallowed an Egyptian army- even though there are those who have come up with convoluted ways it could have happened.

    My personal opinion is that these myths are certainly inspired- in part at least- from real events. Which are real, which are just the imagined story telling of nomads telling stories under the desert stars I doubt we will ever know for certain.

    But it is fun to speculate.

    Why would the Egyptians record what is clearly one of the most shameful event in their long history ... folks don't build monumental structures celebrating their defeats ... even if these events were recorded by Pharaoh's own scribes, these texts would have been destroyed after they hung the scribe ... and it's immaterial to the faithful, it's a tale with deeper spiritual meaning with some real insights into the human condition ... if you don't believe that "In the beginning, God created heaven and earth", don't bother reading any further, not much will make any sense ...

    Such is the human race in this day and age it often seems a pity that Noah didn't miss the boat.

    Deplorable Yankee, your showing of the picture of Noah sent me to Youtube, where I found a movie on the Elijah story I'd been looking for for a long time. So thanks.

    Which is worthy of respect.
