After decades of persecution, almost all Christians and Jews have been ethnically cleansed from the Middle East, except for in the tiny country of Israel. So, if we extrapolate from current known behavior of the Arabs/Muslims of the Middle East, it would be quite reasonable to believe that the same religious bigotry and hateful acts of the Middle East Arabs/Muslims has been going on for centuries.

Middle East Jews survived by fleeing to Israel, whereas most Christians were either murdered or fled the Arab/Muslim countries. In fact, Israel is the ONLY safe country in the Middle East where individuals have the freedom to practice any religion. While Muslim mosques have been built in Israel, Christian churches and Jewish temples have been destroyed throughout the Arab/Muslim Middle East.

So... if this religious intolerant, racist, bigotry has existed for decades, it is fairly easy to assume that this behavior, or worse, has existed over a long time.

Um. Ok.

But this hasn't a thing to do with proof the exodus occurred.

And the way certain groups are treated today tells us nothing about how the were actually treated in the past.

While I'm not a history buff, I can tell you the counters I've heard from apologists. A common one is that we don't know exactly where "the wilderness" was where they wandered for 40 years, and some suspected areas are controlled by places that won't allow digs.

So, basically, it can be summed up as "We can't prove it true, but we can't prove it false either, so we're going to assume it's true because it's in the Bible."

But we know it's not true; even if we discount the lack of evidence for the 40-year trek, we know that the Egyptians never enslaved an entire race, as told in the Exodus story; that fact alone entirely discounts it.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.
