The plagues are rotten. How Moses could suddenly have all this magical powers to then only lead his people to wander in the desert for 40 years, makes no sense to me. One should wonder why god did not endow Moses with power of direction rather than power of spontaneous locusts.

Is there really any evidence that Moses and the Israelites were ever in Egypt for 40 years? I've read about how some scientists have found none.

The nile is naturally red due to the high mountain clay content due to the autumn rains and red microorganisms..its known locally as the RED NILE
The frogs appear in the pools left by the withdrawl of the nile and the same with mosquitos.
The boils are the direct effect of said mosquitos..
The hail is a rare event in Eygpt but is frequent in Caanan in the winter.
The locusts are a frequent epedemic in the crops of the middle east.
The darkness could have been caused by "THE BLACK WIND" a sand storm raised by the KHASMIN wind that passes normally at the end of March, funnily enough exactly when the jews left Eygpt..!!
The death of the frist sons - one things certain NO EYGPTIAN SOURCE menetion the event ??
Why is this only added to the other nine plagues as an after event ??
In exodus 4;23 they only speak of the death of the son of the Pharoah.
The tale could be copied from an Eygptian myth with a similar storyline and simply added by the bible writer later.
The tales of the jews always have one thing in common, they try not to be profane, nothing they do or whatever victory they have real or false is always with the help of god.
