    The whole Exodus book is a fairy tale. Stories of 600,000 people roaming the desert for decades is just not true.
    All those fables of golden calf, ten commandments, burning bushes, parting a sea, plagues and sticks turning into snakes are a fiction. 😆

    Why do you feel this did not happen? Do you not believe in any of the bible?

    The desert is dry, obviously, so why haven't we found massive amounts of skeletons scattered throughout the desert?
    Buried under the sand the bones would be preserved no?
    600,000 roaming the desert for decades would have left skeletons everywhere...right?

    No, not if they were buried properly.

    Can you name some people in the first 1,200 years from the Babylonian Captivity who wrote that the Exodus was a fairy tale ?

    Can you also give you explanation of the celebration of the Passover by millions of Jews through the centuries.

    Don't wave to some other group.
    Don't hand wave about some other folklore of some other ethnic group.

    Explain your alternative historical explanation for the Jewish tradition of the Passover celebration.

    ...[text shortened]... your alternative historical explanation for the Jewish tradition of the Passover celebration.
    For centuries, scholars have been debating the details and historical merit of the events commemorated during the Passover holiday. Despite numerous attempts, historians and archaeologists have failed to corroborate the tale of the Jews’ enslavement in and mass exodus from Egypt.

    Although the ancient Egyptians kept thorough records, no mention is made of an Israelite community within their midst or any calamities resembling the 10 biblical plagues. There is also no evidence of large encampments in the Sinai Peninsula, the fabled site of the Jews’ wandering, or any sudden fluctuation in Israel’s archaeological record that would indicate the departure and return of a large population.

    You are such a rotter. sonship clearly asked you for an explanation of the celebration of the Passover by millions of Jews through the centuries, and all you've gone and done is provide an utter debunking of his explanation. This will only have the effect of making him rather die than have your mind.

    ... and what would "burying properly" entail?
