YES. THANK YOU. FINALLY SOMEONE ELSE SAID IT.
I’ve said this so many times, and people always react in one of these ways:
- “How can you say that? Of course the Jews were enslaved in Egypt.”
- “Well, I don’t know about the specifics, but I definitely believe that the Jews did have a mass-exodus from Egypt. It’s written about in history.”
- “You can’t say that, the bible depicts the exodus in great detail.”
No. No. No. No. No. No. No. No. No. No. No.
The Jews were never enslaved in Egypt. It is NOT written about anywhere in history. The bible is not a “historical” account of ANYTHING. Get your fucking facts straight.
The sheer number of people talked about in the story make the whole thing logistically ridiculous.
