By not prohibiting it, it condones it - this is evidenced by slave ownership in Islamic countries right up to the 20th century and to this day in places like Mauritania. So it doesn't do a very good job of discouraging it.

errr..... POST!?

I definitely have problems with that article. While it makes bold claims of no evidence to support the exodus and that its falsehood is 'beyond doubt' it produces no evidence to support its claims.

It does, of course, make good points about tradition... but that has little to do with the event itself.

There is a possibility that the Exodus happened from a historical standpoint, too. In much smaller and concnetrated numbers however. The article does not deduce conclusively to me that it did not happen. It makes bold statements moreso to provoke reactions.

Egyptian records are notorious for not reflecting things which caused state embarrassment.

Hyksos - I remember reading some article some time ago mentioning they came probably from Libya. Any other suggestions?
