How would translating documents from Akhenaten's days prove that the character of Moses wasn't based on him?
It's widely accepted as fact that Akhenaten was a real historical figure based on physical evidence, but what evidence do we have for Moses' existence outside of The Bible?

Funny thing is....thre is a certain gene associated with jews...all jews no matter where they are from. Even in a group from south africa that claims jewish ancestry. Search J Kohanim gene.
The term Jew passed into the English language from the Greek Ioudaios and Latin Iudaeus, from which the Old French giu was derived after dropping the letter "d", and later after a variety of forms found in early English (from about the year 1000) such as: Iudea, Gyu, Giu, Iuu, Iuw, Iew developed into the English word “Jew.” It thus ultimately originates in the Biblical Hebrew word Yehudi meaning "from the Tribe of Judah ", "from the Kingdom of Judah ", or " Jew ".
One study found that Jews and Palestinians are closer to each other than the Palestinians or European Jews are to non-Jewish Europeans or Africans. They also found substantial genetic overlap between Israeli and Palestinian Arabs and Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews.
Genetic studies on Jews
"Jews and Arabs are all really children of Abraham," says Harry Ostrer, M.D., Director of the Human Genetics Program at New York University School of Medicine, an author of the new study by an international team of researchers in the United States, Europe, and Israel. "And all have preserved their Middle Eastern genetic roots over 4,000 years," he says.

Abraham is the first Jew proper
