That is quite the uninformed caption.

Before anyone has a go: I dont care about the exodus or anything that connects with anything remotely related to religion other than that its "interesting" to know.

the Egyptians were HARD CORE when it came to not writing down their failings. They kept recordings of everything, that is true. Except for such unimportant things as battle losses, famine, social distress and conflict that put the pharao in a bad light.

In very simple language: If Pharao dont like, it's not going on the wall.

Such an embarrassment to the ruling powers as losing out on the majority of their working force to a growling bearded guy without shoes, is one of the things that history was not allowed to recall. Since like any good despot through history would say: Write that down and ill murder everyone you know

Much like the bible that was written down beteen 80-200 AD. the most epic hearsay novel in the history of writte

...so you choose to trust one jewish text that has as much truth as it has fiction (and in some case boldfaced lies), instead of the writings of an entire culture to say whether or not something happened?

That's not how history and anthropology works guys, if the Rape of Nanjing is known today, is because somewhere within the culture someone made it their task to write about it. Doesn`t mean it didn`t happen, it means that since the entire egyptian culture seems to have missed the whole series of extraordinary events described in the bible regarding their involvement with the jews, then it`s very likely it never happened.

Erm, so because the Egyptians recorded SOME unflattering events, they must have recorded ALL unflattering events, and therefore any uncorroborated unflattering events never happened? By that logic, because Japan recorded SOME unflattering events about WWII, but they NEVER MENTION the Rape of Nanjing, that means that the Rape of Nanjing never happened.
