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.

@Angilion: Here it is! by pure coincidence I was looking at the back-pages of IAB when I read this!

@jendrian: I love that site you linked! Truth Saves so much I'll link it again!

Oooo! One detail is not 100% perfect therefore ALL religion is stupid! Whiney IAB Atheists...

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.

Where's this derogatory post some people are talking about?

Is there so very little prejudice against Jews that people have to clutch at the vaguest hint of a shadow of a straw of prejudice to complain about because there's nothing more substantial?

An early bronze age story from the dawn of civilisation, probably retold numerous times before being written down, is unlikely to be a solid, reliable history if there's no supporting evidence for it.

Oh no! I am being derogatory towards everyone everywhere! Woe is me!

Bollocks.

@birdz, that's only a problem to you, about 90% of the commenters have absolutely no issue with this post

They are soft, squishy, and sensitive. How would this help?

birdz, if you really can't handle derogatory posts, you don't belong on the internet at all. In a day IAB can have posts about blacks, christians, atheists, anyone. Grow a pair and deal with it or kindly gtfo.

I love how the people who say the egyptians erased part of their history ignore the fact that we nowadays know they did, and how they did it, and still don't find any evidence supporting the jewish claim of the exodus.

Seriously IAB? Cut this crap out. I've been a long time visitor, but all the derogatory posts towards Jewish people lately make me never want to visit this site again.

@AvatarJohn - Learn you ACTUAL history. The 'Old Testament' as some would refer to it, detailing the Exodus was written during the Diaspora period after the destruction of the First Temple (Circa 600BCE). If the Passover/Exodus happened, it would have occurred in Circa 1400BCE. That's a 8,000 year difference! That's four times as long since the time between Christ's life and today. You really think that's accurate?

@AvatarJohn,

That Jewish book you are refering to is not in any way shape or form regarded as a history book accurately describing the history of the time any more than Homers Iliad would be. So with your logic to question the history of the Iliad would be to call the Greeks liars. You are being ridiculous.

I read something a few years ago that reckoned there was stuff- for a while the egyptians worshipped the Aten- became mono-theistic. There were also records that indicated there were Iraelites with power in a certain part of Egypt for a while. Can't for the life of me remember the details- but the exodus is a folk story- an account of an event made excitingg for retelling. There was an eruption or somethings and they had records- the results of the eruption could be the source of the plagues but in the wrong order etc.. interesting.

By the way, so far today I've seen a disturbing trend developing on IAB:

1) Jews are penny-pinching greedy non-nice individuals who think penny pyramids are porn.
2) Jews are liars who made up Exodus.

Did the neo-Nazi's take over the site today or what? Next up: Those aren't gas chambers, they're showers! Now quit your complaining and breath deeply.

Um, just pointing out the obvious, but regardless of what the Egyptians did or did not keep records on, I'm pretty sure the Jews kept a pretty extensive record on this time period. In fact, they even wrote a book about it. Huh, what do you know, you even have a picture of said book right there! QED.

I believe this is untrue. Ancient Egyptians had a nack of not recording "bad events" or such since that would soil the name of the Pharaoh.
i may be wrong tho, and im not a bible believer.

What about that burden of proof video that was posted about a week ago. If someone makes a claim, don't they have the burden of proof. The more grand or outrageous the claim, the more burdened they are to produce the proof.
