As now and then I stumble over persons who really believe the exodus story , like what happened in the movie the ten commandments really took place ..
The whole story around moses fairytale stuff when you do the math you can see how ridiculous
(1) the parting of the red sea
The supposed freed slaves including life stock numbered like 2 million people and animals , this is a line of 800 mile long
To lead this crowd through a parted red sea would have cost 35 days and nights ..
Suppose the red sea parted for 3 miles wide and people would walk in rows of 5000 would still take a full day but that still without the live stock..
(2) Two million people wondered around for 40 years in an area of 23.000 square miles
and left no trace at all ?
(3) To feed these two million people live stock would be needed
# 1500 tons of food per day, that is 2 trains of each a mile long
# To cook this food they would need 4000 tons of wood that is 4 trains a mile long.
# They would need 11 millions gallon of water that is a tanker train of 11 miles long.
(4) They would need a camping spot of the size of the state of Rhode island
The fairytale went that god helped them with "mana from heaven", if this really would have happened, this raining down in the quantities needed for all these people and live stock would be like a bombardment and killing all of these people on impact..
And I ask you again : all of this left absolutely no trace in the Sinai peninsula ??? at all ????
