We do not believe that an exodus population of 2.5 million defies human reasoning in any way. It is a very believable number.
Dude you must have been rooting around for ages trying to find that lol damn that was obscure.
You obviously didn't read this bit -
In addition to this, there has been prolonged controversy between Torah scholars and archaeologists over the credibility of Aper-al in fact being a Hebrew name.
The discovery of this tomb which took place almost 20 years ago remains an important archaeological event. The reason for this is that the person buried in the tomb was known as "Aper-al" and this is an Egyptianized form of a Hebrew name.
As for the artefacts being consistent with the Egyptian style of the time — what would you expect for Hebrews who had been in egypt for over 400 years? Dude.
I've no doubt some would immediately jump to the conclusion that aper-al could have been one and the same person as joseph, and to be honest i don't think I would have much problem with that on the face of it.
Where I completely differ with you is that (as I've said all along) I am more inclined to consider that the "Hebrews" of the bibles, moses et al were more than likely Egyptians and the remnants of the cult of the Aten.
You are entirely welcome to reach your own conclusions, my friend. Incidentally, have you noticed the similarity with one of the most commonly-used names of the God of the Hebrews: Adonai? Just an observation.
