Evidence you have to obey his word then find proof stupid.

What's your point? The plagues are ridiculous and immoral and it's obviously a myth.

Plague 5: all the cattle of Egypt died
Plague 7: all the cattle in the field die
Plague 10: kill innocent children

The story of Exodus is not evidence of anything It's a story. Also, a rational person doesn't believe and then try to find proof. That's exactly backwards. A rational person believes only after evidence has been found.

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!

They (the plagues) never happened. The Hebrews were never in Egypt, as portrayed in the Bible. If they happened, there would by Egyptian records and hieroglyphs of them. There are none. It's all a made up, bunch of bullshit. The authors/editors were constructing a national story (myth) to promote political cohesion for the return from Babylon. The Torah of Moses was never once referenced in history before Ezra (the prophet) brought it back from Babylon, along with the mandate (document) from the Persian emperor, that Nehemiah
http://www.biblicalarchaeology.org/daily...-the-wall/
could rule in his name. In the Book of Nehemiah, it recounts Ezra's introduction to the people of Israel in the Fall Festival, of the Torah of Moses. Before that, they never heard of these myths, and there is no reference to them.
Stop posting this rubbish on TTA.

The Exodus myth is ludicrous and immoral. Putting aside the many archaeological and historical problems with the story, a god powerful enough to cause plagues and part the sea could have just teleported the Israelites directly into the land of milk and honey.

Instead, it chose to create even more suffering and assassinate innocent bystanders, such as firstborn children, after messing with Pharaoh's mind to keep him from just letting Moses & co. leave peacefully. What an egotistical, vicious-minded rat-bastard.

I'm sorry, but your beliefs are much too silly to take seriously. Got anything else we can discuss?

Angel: SO...god, Sir...what are we doing about the whole Israelite thing?
God: What do you mean?
Angel: WELL, you know like how you've sent like 10 plagues unto egypt-
God: I KNOW RIGHT
Angel: What I mean is....if you're going to, "Show off", can't you just poof them over to the land they need to be at?
God: But then how would they learn anything, if I don't basically destroy egypt and then make them walk the desert for 40 years?
Angel: ... You could just appear and tell them personally?
God: EEEEEHHHH, Fuck that right off, who am I Tom Hanks?
Angel: Who?
God: Ahhh, never mind, I'll tell you in a few hundred thousand years. Just wake me up when Moses gets to that mountain I told him to get too, then send on the giant stone tablets...
Angel: We could give him a scroll?
God: Naa, GIANT stone-ass tablets, and better yet, put them in a giant gold coffin that shoots lasers as people....like in Indiana Jones
Angel: In what?
God: Sorry I keep forgetting you don't know the outcome of everthing before it all happens like me... Drinking Beverage

Well, obviously he brought them back to life just so he could kill them again.

Don't you know anything about religious rationalizations?

Yeah, why didn't god just melt their faces and be done with it?

This god apparently isn't as good as Steven Spielberg in terms of satisfying plot resolution.
